A 9 for Dravid, when you've given the same mark to Bell, Broad and Bresnan?

Broad made only 15 fewer runs and took 8 wickets in the match. That included an innings saving 50 and an innings changing hat-trick.

Bresnan made only 22 fewer runs and took 7 wickets in the match.

Bell made 70-odd more runs in the match, and that included a second innings century when England were under the cosh (compared with Dravid's first innings century when India were better placed).

Harbhajan probably deserves a little more credit for his second innings too, even if he did nothing with the ball.


For India it should be marks 'out of 3', 10 is too generous


A nag, but Yuvraj wasn't the first in the hat trick, Dhoni was.
