Agreed, infact Kumble was our best bet overseas as well when it comes to take wickets. We never has good pair of seamers once Kapil retired. Also I don't see Ashwin as a long term plan for tests. We definately should start seeing some other fresh talent. He is good for T20 and ODI but not for tests.
True, we only have some hope as their batsmen baring Root and Bell are not in good form. But these are the two who has thebest records at this ground.
BTW we lost the 8th wicket should be all out in next couple of overs.
Looks like he was playing for his century. Selfish dismissal.
It was 8 down so definateky he needed to score quickly and at this point every run counted. And the way he batted with last two batsman it shows matuarity. Also I don't see any bad in trying for your century though. Also he was in twenties when these tailenders came so I doubt anyway that he would be having century in his mind at that moment.
