England have taken what appears to be a decisive advantage in the second test match in Mumbai. Following magnificent innings from Pietersen (186 off 225 balls to redeem himself in spades) and Cook (122, his fourth hundred in four matches as England captain, surely the best effort by a captain called Cook since HMS Endeavour was on the high seas), the bowlers have captured seven Indian second innings wickets with a mere 110 on the board (equivalent to 24-7 given the England the first innings lead).
Meanwhile in Adelaide, Australia seem poised for victory over South Africa. If this victory eventuates then Geoffrey Boycott will regain one of his records. None of “Sir” Geoffrey’s 22 test centuries came in a losing cause. This was the record until Graeme Smith of South Africa beat it, but his 26th century looks like being an unavailing one.
