Record breakers

We broke all sorts of records yesterday with 1508 page views of the blog - that was the first time over 1000.

England did with the cricket too. 710-7 finally beating India by an innings and 200+; the second worst defeat that India have suffered.

This ensures that England are now the No 1 Test playing nation: the first time for a very long time.

It was sad to see Sachin Tendulkar getting out. We all hoped that he might score his 100th Test century, but he was out for 40 in a freak dismissal. His partner drove the ball back towards the bowler who dived to try and stop it but merely succeeded in deflecting it on to the stumps. Tendulkar was unable to reclaim his ground and was run out.
