Birmingham: Plays of the Day from the second day of the third Test between England and India at Edgbaston:
Omen of the day
With 207 catches to his credit, the highest in Test cricket by a non-wicketkeeper, Rahul Dravid could be said to possess the world's safest pair of hands. But that crown seems a misfit if you have seen Dravid putting down some easy catches in this series. So far his drop count stands at five: at Lord's he gave Jonathan Trott two chances, even if MS Dhoni shared some blame for the second. At Trent Bridge, he made good ground to Ian Bell but the ball slipped out as he fell on his elbow. Today Bell was given another helping hand by Dravid. Sreesanth had bowled a nice away-seamer to get an edge, but the ball hit Dravid at the base of his wrists and popped out. The simplest chance was off Eoin Morgan's edge in the last over of the day. Dravid grabbed at the ball though and floored it, and immediately threw his cap down in disgust.
