    • Vijay Shankar -- what an unlikely hero for Tamil Nadu, who are now through to the Ranji Finals. Bring on Karnataka! 1 day ago
    • Such pedestrian rubbish from England, but what an innings from Sangakarra! 1 day ago

    • Short boundaries, crap start from Southee, but how well has Vettori bowled here! 2 days ago
