Nice but not enough

A case of too little, too late, I think. Thats my response to India's performance on the fourth day at Eden Gardens. Foiled by the admirable Misbah and the limpet-like Sami, it took them half the day to pick up the remaining four wickets, and then they barely made it to a four-run-an-over rate by the close of play. Pakistan ideally, should have been batting again by now, chasing 400. Instead, they will start tomorrow, an hour before lunch, with only some 70 or so overs to play while chasing 350. (Interestingly, Pakistan's innings lasted almost exactly as many overs as did India's; a match-saving statistic, methinks).
