    Blunders even out?

    Bizarrely enough, England were asked to bat after Rahul Dravid won the toss. It was perhaps his way of a return gift to those who turned up at his 100th test match celebration. We will only know over the next three days if it was a big blunder.

    At the end of day one, when England were 272/3, it certainly seemed so. But the party wasn't over yet. England had to give Dravid a gift. The middle order and lower order once again failed to capitalize on some superb work by the top order and England were all out for 400. This, in spite of Owais Shah's brilliant batting with the tail and an irritating (from an Indian point of view) last wicket partnership between Anderson and Panesar.

    So each side has messed up once. What will they do over the next 11 sessions?
