A good day in the offing

A tight, engrossing day of test cricket developing at St. Lucia. While India might be tempted to concentrate on Lara as the crucial wicket (which, undoubtedly, it is), it would be a mistake to forget about that limpet at the other end: Chanderpaul. The fall of wickets is not inevitable with these two at the crease. Unfortunately, I think India will have to deal with a lot of frustration re: LBWs, as neither of these umpires look inclined to give batsmen out for padding up. Kumble will have to keep his cool, and just hope that he can crash a few into the stumps instead. (the googly to get rid of Ganga was an absolute ripper; I'm glad I got a chance to see it live; Taufel's grin as he answered an appeal that resulted was another classic)
