Speaking of Ganguly...

... his county stint seems to be a story of extremes. Either it is raining, and there is no batting time. Or the team is collapsing. Or, as today, everyone and his uncle is scoring runs, and he is in the pavilion, watching. Already a 50, a double century, a century, an unbeaten century -- which means Ganguly won't get much batting in this game. 19-4-66-0 meanwhile, for Irfan Pathan in the game.
In the Hampshire-Surrey game, meanwhile, Bajji whacked a 25 off 16 (four fours, one six) which must have been hugely entertaining; now the offie is at the bowling crease, with Hampshire 75/2 in response to Surrey's 361.
The game appears to have caused some heartburn for Warne, and a resulting tiff with umpires.
If reported, Warne, who received three disciplinary points after a clash with Somerset's Peter Bowler last season, could find himself in hot water. So in an effort to avoid his being reported to Lord's for his confrontation, he and Whitehead were believed to have been called together at the close of play to try to iron out their differences.

  • Harbhajan seems to have carried on the form he ran into during the Tsunami game into this match.
    10-1-20-3 so far, which is looking pretty impressive.

  • Prem,

    May I ask why you keep ignoring Dinesh Mongia like a mother ignores her stepson.

    Of all the Indian Players, It's Dinesh Mongia who has been putting up best numbers on the board. He probably has more runs and wickets than all other Indian players combined.

  • I don't know if anyone is following the Surrey v Hampshire game...Bajji is creating some serious havoc there!!!...Hampshire reeling at 121/7...5 wickets for the turbanator....Hopefully he can carry this form into the tri-series in Sri Lanka....
