Brutal India Give England a Black Eye and Broken Jaw

When the Earth is nearest the Moon; when the constellation of Taurus is perpendicular with the Sun; when it is winter and cold and dark; cricket comes along and gives Nightwatchgirl two Test matches to watch. (For the Australian Test, see cricket news)

How nice.

Only trouble is, the India v England series is becoming rather one-sided.

KP lost the toss (again). India batted like robots programmed by WG Grace. The only difference being that it wasn't Sehwag smacking the England bowlers around for fun. It was Gambhir and the almost-sacked Dravid (bet they're relieved they didn't get rid of him in the end).

That seems to be the trouble with the India batting line-up. Get rid of one, and another just comes along to replace him. So Sehwag was out for a duck. Big whoop. Gambhir and Dravid clocked up 179 runs. And then there's Tendulker, Laxman, Yuvraj, Dhoni and Harbhajan. Will it never end?

This leaves England nowhere. Their bowling was not of the highest order. The batting is certainly not of the highest order.

Nightwatchgirl cannot get up at 4am just to watch England being smacked around. It's like watching your neighbour's husband hitting his wife: brutal, illegal and morally reprehensible.

England. Call the police immediately.

The more I read of Peter Moores' inane witterings the more I'm sure that whatever medication he's on has transported him to the planet Zarg.

The guy has no experience of test cricket and his continued inanities expose that lack of experience and understanding. Let's get Geoff Lawson in so he can give Harmlessone the rocket he so desperately needs.

Jamie - Harmlessone is inspired. Nightwatchgirl passes on her congratulations.
