Jadeja maybe... would need to bat, and who knows if he will. If they get within a 100, and still have 3-4 wickets in the bank when he enters, then maybe.

Yeah, reckon they will hold back with Jadeja. Ashwin next for sure then maybe Bumrah. If we are going to see him it will be after that.

Haha I forgot he was injured in all the nervousness. I reckon if they get close he might go out. Fingers crossed they get wickets quickly now.

Fox for me, I'm watching it on my second screen while at work. Warnie can come up with some good insights but is a clown.

Did you know ?

The record for balls faced in a test innings is held by Len Hutton (ENG).

At The Oval in 1938 Hutton faced 847 deliveries..he scored 364.

I agree NR.

127 is probably out of reach with a batsman who can’t run and Jadeja nursing a broken thumb.

Geez the fox commentary is a bit ordinary but so is 7. Fleming saying if India draw they've held the trophy... how is that the case when it would be 1-1 with one more test remaining?
