    Yes indeed. Here is Shane Warnes tweet.

    Obvious mark on hot-spot, Lyon clearly hit the ball on to his shoulder & he walked off the ground. Ridiculous waste of time & wrong decision

    Cricket in India getting exciting ....plenty of action to come

    Funny that intentionally damaging the pitch costs your team 5 runs

    NZ clueless against Ashwin and Jadeja. Got to the point the best they could do was have a bash and hope for the best lol.
    Often have been disappointed at NZ only given 2 or 3 test in a series, but in this case I think 3 is more than generous.

    That was just outstanding.

    The opening spell from Boult and Henry
    Fergusons pace
    Satners spin
    THAT Neesham catch
    Williamsons captaincy
    Guppy. Guppy all is forgiven.....

    Wow that was a thriller, well worth staying up for !.The score predicter at the beginning of Indias innings was giving NZ a 2% chance of winning.

    Score Predictor is a pile of poo. At one stage in our innings it was predicting that we would be scoring 10+ an over for the last 12 overs!

    Brilliant tactics , timing and reading the pitch by Williamson to get to a winning total, out thought everyone.
    Score predictor, betting odds etc all were writing off NZ . The programmers were too .In the NZ innings , for 30 mins we had to endure an interview with former aussie captain steve waugh with added highlights of his previous glories .

    To top it off ,its early days but kiwi George Bennett is coming 4th in the Tour De France!

    You Kiwis crack me up.

    when the blackcaps lost to England last week, cricket was barely mentioned on the news. Then they fluke a win against a much better indian team and we are treated to Ten minute news headline where every newsreader claims to be tired from staying up all night watching it.

    You crack me up with your attempted fluke windup. A "much better" Indian team is useless on the day isn't it because on the day they were outplayed and outsmarted by a better team. Winning the coin toss was the lucky part. Everyone loves a winner especially one with a population of 4 .5 mill against a cricket mad country with 1 billion plus. Quite incredible also knowing its down the list from Rugby and Soccer etc .

    When Wall Street goes up 500 points there is nothing on the news. When it drops 400 the world is collapsing. Go figure.
