Trading Post: Oppose Test stalemate in Bangalore; sports play of the day.
India only need to draw the match to take the landmark series, which is the first between these countries since 1999.
However, reports suggest that the Chinnaswamy Stadium wicket is aburner that will turn like mad, and if that is the case a result either way would be likely.
India's Harbhajan Singh took 11 wickets the last time India played a Test at Bangalore, and his partner in spinning crime, Anil Kumble, was a key man in the victory at Kolkata in last week's Test.
The other key factor to consider when thinking about whether to lay the draw is the likelihood of rain.
But the prognosis looks good in that respect, too.
The sun was beating down yesterday and the word from the Met Office is that the weather will remain fine throughout the five days.
Kumble: key man
