After a hard fought day of gripping cricket, the test is set up in a most intriguing manner. India has runs on the board, and England has to bat last -- and it is anyone's guess how the wicket will behave.
If the Eden track eases out, as it often does, then England could make the best of the conditions on offer and make India sweat. But if it crumbles and spins more than today then England have a task on their hands.
Today, on day 1, the focus was more on SRT than the game. Till now the great man was out of sorts, divorced from batting form, and this sudden fall became a national debate. With all manner of opinions swirling in the air, some non-believers even asked rude questions about his future.
