Today was a day of real extremes in world cricket. In one part of the subcontinent, England laboured against Bangladesh in the second test of the series. Shakib Al Hasan bowled 15 maidens, and Jonathan Trott ground out a half-century, with his 64 coming from 187 balls. Not too far away, in Chennai, a tense IPL game was tied from the final ball, with the Kings XI Punjab triumphing over the Chennai Super Kings in a super over.
The two poles of world cricket - an attritional test against a glitzy T20 game. I know which one I'd rather watch. And it wouldn't have any cheerleaders.
