Mohali Day 1

Honours even at lunch, I would think. Taufiq Umar departing just before the break would leave the Indians feeling buoyed, but a shade under 100 in the first sessison on a pitch meant to favour the bowlers isn't too bad. The core of experience is at the pitch now, and theirs will be a crucial partnership. Could well decide if Saurav's decision at the toss is judged as attacking or defensive.

At the start of play the ground seemed surprisingly not full. I am waiting for the ground reports- how many Pakistani fans, mixed stands or not, the little stories.Why do I get the feeling I may be expecting too much...
