Give it a rest

I've never managed to understand the utter fascination that dibbly-dobbly nudging, noodling and nurdling has for Sachin Tendulkar. This innings he's putting together at the Gabba (and he's on 76 now) is showcasing a man who, despite being one of the world's best strokemakers, simply cannot resist the temptation to play little dabs instead. Strange, very strange. India are looking set for a decent score, but with this pitch looking as good as it is, they're going to need a very good score in order to be sure of defending it.

I think all that's born out of having to hold the baby all the time Samir.
