Indian wickets falling so quickly might, ironically, in the end help India win this test match, #indvsa
I feel like Kohli-Dravid, understandably, would not even consider declaration before the target crosses 325. Why should they? It's just the first test against a slightly weaker team for a change! And this Indian team gets better as a series progresses.

Which is the rational call
However, if India get dismissed for like 275 lead or so, or even 260... Not really easy to chase. Not against this Indian attack. And that might leave enough time for India to bundle them out under 200. Even with rain breaks tomorrow.

Kohli departs after another start. But pundits will now go "he should convert the starts into centuries" as if he decided, nah, 35 is enough, who needs 100?

That's the thing about this lean phase for Kohli, Rahane, Pujara. They've been getting starts regularly.
If a batter is getting starts, they are generally *NOT* out of form. You can't get to 25 regularly if you're truly out of form.

In such instances, more often than not, the "lean phase" is just a stochastic inevitability. In this case, remember, in the golden age of fast bowling.
What I'm saying is that Kohli and Rahane and to some extent Pujara are having a lean patch mainly because of "luck". Not in the colloquial sense but the way @cricketingview has explained "luck". It's a probability thing. Doesn't make for 2000 word essays, but that's it.

The third umpire is named Allahueddin Palekar! Sounds like a character from a Film Institute movie, no? #INDvSA
This Palekar name reminds me of a very @bvhk story. Twenty years or so, Harish, @quatrainman & I were at Shabri on FC Road in Pune after one of our usual quiz club sessions. All of us, big fans of Amol Palekar fans. Acting and directing. Not just Golmaal fan types. Plus quizzers.
This also happened to be a phase when Amol Palekar's career was considered a cool eclectic topic in Indian quizzing. And we had each made many such quiz questions, really dived into his career.

That day, we spotted the man himself in Shabri. With his family.
