    25 Jul 2014 | 12:33 pm
    When England toured India in 2012, Alastair Cook had a stellar tour. He made 176 at Ahmedabad, 122 at Mumbai and 190 at Eden Gardens. At Nagpur, he made 14 in 121 balls and got two rough decisions. The Test ended in a draw and England won the series 2-1. Cook’s performance in India prompted comparisons with Tendulkar. After the Kolkata Test Cook’s Test average had crossed 50 for the first time since his 11th Test. At that point, he had played 86 Tests, made 7103 runs and made 23 centuries. As he talked to the press at the Eden Gardens on that cool December day, if anyone had said that…

In a moment of inspiration, our man flicks the razor blade towards the two guys and then lets rip with the pistol. In a delicious twist on Solomon's judgment, the bullet is split neatly in two by the blade and each half makes an inspired, disabling dart for the two evil guys. They crash to the ground by half a bullet each, but mainly, it…

    On 94, Ajinkya Rahane took a good length delivery outside off stump from James Anderson and slogged it over mid-wicket for a boundary. India were 8 down, England had the 2nd new ball and on this Lord's wicket, only the foolhardy would bet on Shami Ahmed and Ishant Sharma's batting talent. But that slog which just cleared the mid-wicket fielder did not belong in the innings produced by phlegmatic run machine from Dombivli on the first day of the Lord's Test.James Anderson made the ball talk from time to time on the greenest Test pitch in recent memory, and Rahane walked in to bat just as…
