When did you know about Lord's

By now you’d think the Lord’s defeat was an open secret. I made an Early Bored Call at Reverse Swept Radio – “India will win Lord’s” around the 8th minute. To add some levity I also predicted India will win 4-0 along with a SRT 100.

Quite a few bloggers called Lord’s. Why don’t journalists make such calls?

When do you think India knew they were going to lose – when they saw the previous records and scorecards? After the ‘make it large’ spoof ads? After Zaheer walked away? When Yuvraj walked in? When Amit Mishra came on? When Saha came on, did Saha come on? How many extras can you have on the field before you realize, this is not the team I went in with? When MSD bowled? When Kapil Dev mocked him for making a mockery? When Raina bowled?

When Dravid was dismissed on the fifth morning. And flung his bat at an imaginary fly. He knew. It was good enough for me.

So is it correct to say that Dravid lost us the game for he was the only one who could have saved us?
