Irfan Pathan sent back

I would say I was fortunate not to witness the famous Indian 'spectacular' debacle and had sound sleep instead.

A traditionally strong batting line has almost consistently been bailed out by tailender's batting. Time for Dilip Vengsarkar and co to go with 10 bowlers and wicket keeper in the next match, send the complete top order back to india. Is there a need for a captain?...

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers: ...happy new year fellow CDs..:(

The problem with Indian cricket, clinging on to mere stats, instead of what result it really brought about. Remember, that Boycott was dropped after scoring double century or so, but was not playing for the team's cause.

So true. Stats wont matter if we keep on losing. Where are VVS, Sachin, Ganguly, etc when needed. And the opening pair is a dud. SA sent down Gibbs to bat down as he failed to score while opening. Will we change the openers? Let's see in the next couple fo days.

Pathan was sent back for no fault of his whereas Sehwag, Jaffer,etc are still hanging around. Sending someone back is an insult. It was a bad judgement on part of the selectors.

Agreed, but Jaffer did apply himself in the 2 innings. Drop Sehwag, not Jaffer for the next match. Make him sit out a few matches. His attitude is being questioned, and he has been taking his place for granted for too long. Something must be done before he goes the Kambli way.

Gambhir instead of Sehwag would be the only change I see in the next match.

Ganguly is making his comeback (although in this 2nd innings he struggled a bit), Laxman showed a lot of character, Sachin played a fluent knock in the first innings, but got out for a duck in what seems to have been the ball of the day, and Dravid was the victim of bad umpiring in both innings.

You have to give credit to the South African bowlers - esp Ntini. When he bowls like he did, there is not much anyone can do.

Sehwag unlikely for last test

At least Vengsarkar and Chappel are doing something to save face.

Sehwag is in the team. He should be thankful to Dhoni's injury.

However as he has not opened for India today, see now, we got first 100 opening partnership since ages ;)

On bouncy wickets we need to have batsmen with sound technics and not the thinkless attackers like veeru.

Wicket is not that Bouncy, it is Hard. Ball is coming at good hight. Some of the strokes that Jaffer and Karthik played were amazing. Scoring has been slow, but thats what the Test Cricket is all about - the idea, I think is to Bat once. Wicket is Hard and it will be good pitch for Kumble and even Sehwag in last two days. It will be Fun to Watch Kumble with Runs behind his back.

If we have good first hour - onslaught is not far behind with all so called Stroke makers to come in (including Sehwag).

the pitch is a heaven for batsmen and the start though good was very slow... did you see the difference when dravid came,,,, the runs were flowing every where....

Now that the new ball has come Indian are back in the shell... the Indian batting is in a such a pitiable state...... Tendulkar is less than 10% what he used to be.. very apprehensive...
he ought to do something.

Their run rate was lower than Team India. IMO, Test Cricket is all about Pushing Opponent out of Game. It is fine ... even if you Score Low as long as Overs/Sessions are Consumed. I like to see Slow & Long rather than Quick & 'not that Long' First Inning when you know Pitch will help your Spinners.

Game is Wide open ... all Four Results are Possible. It's even.

Looks like its going to be very interesting match. IMO, draw is ruled out. If the pitch starts turning, then we r in a good position. We have entire day tomorrow. We should have batted a bit more responsibly in the second ionnings.

If we lose, then dada should be the captain, again.
