The fourth quarter of the fourth innings

I'm delighted that the fears I expressed here, regarding India's poor record batting in the fourth innings of Test matches, didn't come true. Rahul Dravid, as he has so often done, played a crucial innings to take India to safety. Given what happened after he got out, though, it's interesting to note that both sides would probably have had a better chance of victory had Dravid been dismissed a few overs earlier. That said, I'm glad he batted as long as he did.

Wouldn't life be boring without Ifs and Buts?
