More of the same

I'm notj convinced that Yuvraj makes a good close-in fielder. I'm basing this on a small sample size (his efforts at Rawalpindi, 2004 and now today), but he seems to not have the instinct for the small chances that occur very close in. Perhaps he is better suited for the slips/gully/point regions where his kind of athleticism seems to flourish.

India meanwhile, are staring at a frustrating result - Lara and Chanderpaul are now well and truly stuck in, and with hints of a strong breeze that could push in more clouds, this could get wiped out as a final little twist. Sehwag is on now, but no luck, no breakthrough. After a little while more of this, I fear the going-through-the-motions vibe will start to get stronger.
