New Zealand begin the day 166 runs behind with 7 wkts left. This should be the last day of the test match.
 
I would expect to see India wrap this one up today, but it would be good to see some fireworks from McCullum and co.
 
new zealand are awful at test cricket. the match is heading towards where it was expected. They have a former bowler batting at number 6.
 
Flynn pulls a short ball from Zaheer for the first boundary of the morning
 
game's not over yet and this is a good partnership. Ryder and Vettori, two century makers haven't batted yet even!
 
Munaf gets taylor!

Munafs a good 3rd seamer for india!

No need Tendulkar is there, he can adjudicate with that renowned honesty.
But he didn't do that yesterday. Umpires didn't even consult him. I'd expect Ricky '4th umpire' Ponting to do something like this when consulted

That's alright keep digging. Another unfortunate incident for Tendulkar which of course is somebody's else's fault.

I think now we blame the batsman for not standing his ground more assertively.

What can Tendulkar do ? His tried taking the catch, didn't influence the umpire by giving his opinion. The umpire gave the batsman OUT on his own without consulting any of the players. That's it !!

He appealed for the catch. Does that not imply he thinks it is out?

Wait now we have to reverse all the arguments because the Indians are defending bump catches :))) I love the blinking, smiling hypocrisy so clearly evident.

If Tendulkar did do a Ponting and give someone one out you can bet there would all the defences mounted in his favour and then some.

Hobbits collapsing as predicted by most.

Why won't he appeal if he thought the catch was clean ? Did he debate with the umpire, or give his opinions regarding the matter to the umpire, or do what Ponting did by raising his finger up ?

How many decisions have gone against NZ in this match?
I can count 3 if they were all done correctly this would be a competitive match.

oh well...

3 went against India. McCullum was leg before twice not given. In the first innings Guptill was plumb not given.
 
That ins in the first match of IPL last year by McCullum has raised expectations for him every time he comes into bat, but he more often than not fail to deliver with a significant knock

Afridi is a better striker of the ball than Mccullum. That innings in IPL was a fluke.
 
McCullum has to hit out now, what with Martin the only other batsman left.

This was such a typical response I could have typed it for you. Yawn.

Easy victory coming up for India. Pity that bump catch takes some of the gloss off it.

And yeah McCullum has been heavily overrated since that IPL innings. He is not that good a player.

McCulllum moves on to 41, with 2 quick boundaries New Zealand only 14 behind now.
 
Run out not given. Unbelievably poor third umpiring. Commentators are puzzled at the decision.
 
O'Brien sweeps for 4 and 50 partnership's up. Commentators mentioning there might be rain tomorrow.

RA, your comparing two completely different catches. Ponting took his, rolled on the ground, and put the ball on the ground.

Tendulkar's was with the fingers jammed between the ball. Ponting's was blatant, Tendulkar's was not.

Don't know how you can compare the two.

Leave RA to me :p . Punter picked the ball from the ground and claimed it as catch. Serial cheater.

Fine by me for you to call Ponting serial cheater if you are prepared to admit Sachin is cheater. But of course you won't.

Because he is retired you might agree that Ganguly was a cheat - but even then probably not.

Exhibit number 456457 of why RA hates on Indian cricket fans and them alone. :batman: No other countries fans are so stupidly biased.
 
I cant believe Taufel didnt give that bat pad decision against Maccullum HUGE inside edge.. Doesnt matter we will still win the game, SHEEP DOWN

now look at this RA. How can you compare this with Tendulkar's catch?

THERE IS NO DOUBT that he pressed the ball onto the floor!

With Tendulkar's there is doubt, and you can't prove that he caught the ball, and you can't NOT prove that.

Don't understand how he can be called a cheater. But Ponting, just look at the video!
 
Harbhajan's figures currently 6-63, Hot spot confirms there was no bat involved, India Lucky there!:D
