    Classic Viru, a century off 90 balls, lol. Pujara is becoming a growing force in Indian cricket. A 50 in his debut Test against Aus (albeit in the 2nd innings following a 4 in the first), then a 150 in the series against NZ and looks set for another ton when play resumes tomorrow. So, in just 8 Test innings, he's already averaging above 40, and he's only 24. With Virat Kohli already established and Unmukt Chand also coming into the mix, Tendulkar's looming retirement is not looking so serious for India anymore.

      Phillip, the media are reporting as little as possible - those who are even bothering to report at all. As you may or may not be aware, there is something of a media boycott against the BCCI atm.
