    More power to test cricket

    It's a bit odd, really. The first forty four tests between India and Pakistan yielded 33 draws/no-results. The next 13 tests have seen only 3 draws! Out of those 3 draws, one was drawn due to some excellent rescue acts while the other two games were drawn because of flat pitches.

    I think the Kotla test was played out on a very good test wicket. The pitch did have some uneven bounce earlier on, but on days 3 and 4, it was very good for batting. Bowlers who were able to exploit the pitch and the swing, did very well. It wasn't a bat-a-thon wicket. Neither was it one of those Kotla specials!

    I don't know the crowd numbers for yesterday, but I believe around 38,000 watched the third day from the stadium. That is very good going for a test match in India. I really hope Eden Gardens and Chinnaswamy also produce good wickets and ensure players put up a good show.

    How great is it to watch cricket teams actually get bowled out.
