    Great, its clearly turned into a minefield just when we're close to batting.
    We get the worst luck.

    I'm betting Burns will survive to a solid 52. Wadey will chop on.

    I'll take a 50 from Burns tbh.
    Red letter day if they both somehow get a 50.

    Can someone remind Wadey that there are still over 2 days to play.
    Doesn't need to chase the deficit down by himself before drinks.

    What do we all think we need?

    Deck looks placid, no demons at all

    8 sessions left

    Best - We need to bat till 30min before stumps tomorrow at least (over 4.5 sessions)
    Score around 450+, India 320+ to win on the final day

    Worst - Well the world is Indias oyster. Bowled out for 200-250?

    It does kind of work as a way of working out who is on top provided you ignore the likelihood of getting 2 wickets (so it is totally stupid).
    Like if it is 5/200 the bowlers are on top because 7/220 you take every time. But if it is 5/200 and the batters are both on 50 plus and looking good then the batting team is totally on top.
