India England – 1st Test

Ok, after the end of Day 2 of the 1st Test match, it is pretty much “even-stevens”, though you could say that India might have a slight advantage considering that they have some good stroke makers to follow. Today was an amazing day of cricket indeed. Indians started very positively by bundling out the remaining English batsmen with S’Santh picking up 3  wickets and Zaheer 2. It was pretty high quality bowling.

In reply, India are 145/4 with most of the top-order back in the hut. India needs Dada, VVS and Dhoni to score heavily if they are to make a contest of this Test match. It is not going to be easy considering that the bowlers are going to be fresh tomorrow and the batsmen need to have their concentration back again.

The prospects for the 3rd day’s play seems really exciting – so far, this has proved to be a great entertainer and I see no reason why the 3rd day won’t be one. It is great to see Test Cricket played like this – great ground, great crowd, great batting, great swing bowling – just an absolute delight for a cricket lover :).

Whom are you placing your bets on? – chime in.
