over a grand for 7. whoa.

What an astounding pile-up of runs, and what astounding batting performances for me to completely miss! Sheesh.
Like the blitzkreig from Afridi (and lesser from Akmal) and the foundations laid by Yousuf and Younis, Sehwag and Dravid's innings have been on a eminently forgettable strip, but a lot of the batting we have seen is memorable despite that. To come out nearly 700 runs behind against your arch rival and its excellent bowling attack and pound it to dust thus (yes, yes what a sodding pitch this is) is an amazing display of will, strength and skill. Especially considering that bit of mess that the team and its peripheral issues are in right now...
