One "wrong" decision and one for "real" averages

A great start for England this morning but it appears that the one wicket for India wasn't actually out - another to add to the list of wrong decisions once the game is over.

Once again, the role that luck - or lack of it - plays in determining a player's success or failure has been underlined. Alastair Cook is out when he wasn't and Andrew Strauss is free to carry on his innings after being dropped at point by Dinesh Khartik. It could be that this was the piece of luck that Strauss needed to get a ton and bring him back into form - from an England point of view I hope so.

Ah, you can't have seen him charging down the pitch on 96 coming. What a fool.
