India close on 129/3
England still lead by 162, India have 7 wkts to take into the final day and try and prevent a series white wash.
This will probably be Tendulkar's final innings in England, he's 35 n.o., needing another 65 to record his 100th first class century.

Tendulkar was very unlucky, out for 91, i'm sure no one would have begrudged him the ton.

India all out 283 - England win by a innings and 8 runs and complete the whitewash.

Sad to hear of Graham Dilley's death today, a great pace bowler for Kent, Worcester and England, and helped England win the Ashes in 1981. He was just 52. RIP

HAIL THE LITTLE MASTER

India's Sachin Tendulkar has become the first player to score 100 international centuries by compiling a ton in a one-day game against Bangladesh in Dhaka :mrgreen: he already holds the record for scoring the most Test and one-day runs, has also scored 51 Test tons.

LEADING CENTURY MAKERS
Sachin Tendulkar, India - 100 (51 Test, 49 ODI)
Ricky Ponting, Australia - 71 (41, 30)
Jacques Kallis, South Africa - 59 (42, 17)
Brian Lara, West Indies - 53 (34, 19)
Rahul Dravid, India - 48 (36, 12)

Surrey cricketer Tom Maynard, son of Matthew Maynard, has died aged 23 after being hit by a tube train in the early hours of this morning. Terrible, terrible news.

RIP Tom :(

You couldn't do this if you tried: http://www.skysports.com/video/inline/0 ... 51,00.html

Andrew Strauss' sunglasses fall off his hat as he picks the ball up. He then proceeds to throw the ball straight into his mid-air glasses, completely obliterating them. Genius :lol:

England getting battered at the moment and look like losing by a innings, South African Amla whacked 311 n.o., Kallis 182 n.o. and Smith 131, they piled up 637 - 2 and England struggled to 102 - 4 and still trail by 150 :roll:

England 385 & 240 lose to South Africa 637-2 dec by an innings and 12 runs :?

No real surprise, why we keep giving certain players chance after chance baffles me.
