I am a cricket lover like most of the indians so you can expect me to write posts on this topic in the coming period.
All the cricket lovers must already be knowing that India is in England for a test and one day series. I had some time to watch the second day’s play of the first test match at lord’s and it was pretty clear that the time that was going to bat well is going to win this match.
There was good swing for the bowlers and Indians took the last 6 wickets for 3o runs. They made up for the pathetic display on the first day but I am afraid that this single bad day is going to ruin india’s chances. Indian batsmen struggled early on and I watched till Sachin came in. I switched off the TV immediately, painful to see him get out cheaply and for innocuous deliveries. I am a fan of Sachin but I believe he should be dropped if he is not performing well that will act as an motivation for him to come back strongly.
Anyways, I had a look at the score card just now and the Indians seemed to have decently well but dont think it will be good enough. Indians have to overtake the english total and bowl them out cheaply in the second innings to have any real chance of winning the match. At this moment, english have the upper hand but who knows cricket is the game of uncertainties…
