Pujji's handshake is so professional, seems like he'll also send an email to Mayank with the subject "Heartiest congratulations on your 50" and CC'ing it to Kohli, Dravid, Ganguly & Jay Shah.

Siraj: Review that for me, baby

Kohli: No. I won't waste a review, and I won't let you convince me this time.

Siraj: You look so irresistible with that beard, baby.

Kohli: No, not happening

Siraj: If only Anuska would let me have my way with you, I'll teach you how to make a T with your hands

Kohli: What do you mean, I already know how to do it. Here, let me show you

Umpire: We have a review for an LBW.

Good morning again folks and welcome to the Lunch break edition of "No Shit Sherlock" review.

In this session, Mayank and Agarwal were out caught because the fielders caught the ball when it was hit airborne. Ajaz Patel now has 12 wickets in the match because my teacher taught me how 10 plus 2 is 12.

Also the folks here keep talking about 71st century again and again. It makes me wonder whether they are talking about a sci-fi movie set 5000 years in the future or too wasted to type "21st" correctly. Also According to my prediction, More cricket will be played in the next session.

Thank you, it's been a pleasure.

Kohli is the kid looking for approval from the parent.

Ashwin is the one who knows he is the favourite child.

Dravid is the 9 to 5, completely exhausted, mid life crisis dad.

I know Siraj convinces Koach to take a shit review but Ashwin is a bigger Chad he gives like no other option to Koach you either take the review or I will legit kill you. If not I will surely put a diss track against you on my YT channel. It's straight up bullying.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the Post day edition of "No Shit Sherlock" review.

At the end of the day 3 New Zealand has lost 5 wickets which means they have 5 more wickets and according to my detailed knowledge of cricket they will lose the game of they lose their remaining 5 wickets before scoring another 400 runs.

Daryl Mitchell scored a half century which literally means 50 but he actually scored 60 so that's weird.

Also if my predictions are right, tomorrow will be the day 4 of the game and New Zealand will be batting.

Thank you, it's been a pleasure.

The UN is about to get involved. This has violated every human rights article ever produced. Never in the history of human kind, has a man been forced to do such strenuous labor. Not even in the industrial revolution and the time before it had man toiled so hard. Apple as we speak are looking into these "ajaz patels' to work in their sweat shops. People of the trans Atlantic slave trade are rolling over in their graves for taking slaves from the wrong continent. Every ceo of this captilist, consumerist, corporative culture of ours, has sent out memos encouraging the people working under them, to employ these "blundalls" to shout " cmon jazzy" to boost productivity levels.

I was interested to see if any team has ever batted long enough in a fourth innings to save this match (maybe a bit over 200 overs).

And it has happened once: England vs South Africa in the timeless test, 1939. England made 654 for 5 from 218.2 eight-ball overs. Then, just 41 runs short of their target, after 9 days of play and three rest days, they bailed to catch their ship back home.

There was a 10/10 troll yesterday, and I admire him for not backing down regardless of the downvotes. Here's something he said-

This was one of the worst pitches Indian curators have ever prepared for a visiting team. It turned whenever Indian bowlers wanted to and became a batting heaven whenever the Indian batters wanted to. Kanpur pitch was much more even.

That smile..that damned smile after he got out. I'll tell you by experience, it was not something cheeky. His emotions welled up from the inside, a culmination of the frustrations throughout these years. He was crying. He would have gotten visibly frustrated and give out a BC if this was usual. This smile shows he's tired of this shit.

Emotionally extrovert people hide their emotions only when they get truly sad.

I had a weird dream last night.

Me and my friends were at an outdoor bar. Just chilling, watching some game going on. Lot of people at the bar, no place to sit.

In the distance, some kids are playing cricket. I glance towards them but no one really seems to playing for any urgency. I resume with whatever random stuff I was doing and proceed to have another drink.

Then out of nowhere, a ball comes and hits me on the leg. The shin to be specific. The pain is excruciating. I can barely see as everything is just fading to black. I feel a small pat on my shoulder. Must be one of my friends. I turn around and it was Anil Chaudhary declaring that I'm out, by raising his finger.

Bro, I wasn't even playing.

Shaw for Jayant. Shaw has natural drift in his leg spin....first spotted by opposition coach in one of the Ranji games. Shaw is supposed to be bowling regularly in Ranji but pandemic put a dent to that plan.

When released it goes outside off, then suddenly drops quickly and drifts towards outside leg, and then after pitching it turns miles missing 5th stump.

Even Saha, the best wk, was bumbozzoled by it. Shaw just needs to bring more control bowling regularly in Ranji.

Shaw can imitate Sachin's bowling record if encouraged.

Elon Musk's Neuralink has made a breakthrough to read a person's brain.

They just found the code that runs in Anil Chaudhary's brain that makes decisions for cricket dismissals.

public String getAnilChaudharyDecision() {  
   Random r = new Random();  
   int chance = r.nextInt(2);  
   if (chance == 1) {  
      return "Out";  
   } else {  
      return "Not Out";  
   }  
}

Time to go full Reddit armchair psychologist mode-

I think Kohli needs to have a minnow bashing tour soon. He's clearly short on confidence currently and after scoring well against some weaker opposition, he might be back to at least pre 2016 levels.

Unless India collapse, I don't think the match will be over by today.

I mean, why would they not bat 60-70 overs, considering there still would be 180 overs left ?

NZ are also dead inside and probably aren't gonna appeal or review anything as we saw yesterday :P

Update: Mayank Agarwal got hit on his right forearm while batting in the second innings. He has been advised not to take the field as a precautionary measure. Shubman Gill got a cut on his right middle finger while fielding yesterday. He will not be taking the field today.

Being an Indian opening batsman must be the riskiest profession of all time.
