First day.

On the whole I think the honors were even, with India having a slight
edge. They can take control of the match by batting well tomorrow.
And one expects the pitch to play better. But I think Pakistan did
reasonably well to get to 312. Considering that they were 191/6, they
did well to reach 312. Asif Kamal played a very gritty innings. Indians
were of course very disciplined and stuck to a game plan.
Balaji bowled very well. We should have cleaned up their innings much
earlier, but apart from that it was a nice performance. Now everything depends on the Indian batsmen. They can take the match away from Pakistan if they apply themselves well.
