I meant "excellent"

As I write this, Rahul Dravid has just completed a fifty in the ongoing match against South Africa. And I'm reminded of this post I wrote some weeks ago.

Because in it, I asked parenthetically: ever notice how many fifties are described as "a fantastic innings under pressure"?

And today, the cricinfo ball-by-ball for this match describes Dravid's fifty as an "excellent innings under pressure."

But well done anyway, Dravid.
