How about that performance Azza ?

We just pantsed the 1st ranked IND on their home patch with some blistering batting.

Yep, solid win. Hard to comment much on our middle order though! British or India rank second?

John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.
