The new-ball pair

At lunch the Indians would have hoped that Mohammad Sami and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan would be operating by tea. Well, they are. Only they're batting, not bowling.

The game's pretty much a draw now. Abdul Razzaq and Kamran Akmal added 184 in a partnership that I think we'll remember years from now. The Indians lacked a strike bowler, but it was really their dismally slow batting on the third day of the game than denied them the win. They showed no initiative then, and they're paying for it now.

More on this later.
