India has moved past fifty in quick time but still it is a long way to go. The good thing is that Uthappa has started to open up and play his shots. He played a cracker of a drive--it was an inside-out shot.

India is fighting it out and hopefully if these two stick on the crease for some more times, things might get interesting.
Oh lord! It's pouring now and the cricketers are going off. This doesn't look like stopping now. Fingers crossed.
