Thank the Rain “Lord’s”

The India England Test Match at Lord’s can be summed up in a few words – a great Test Match with India performing a great escape thanks to the rain Gods. It was simple, India needed 380 to win, England needed 10 wickets. The final score – India were 282/9 when bad light and rain halted the game and the match was drawn !

Yes, it was sad at not seeing a result to this good Test match but then India have been at the receiving end for a quite a few frustrating games when rain has prevented victory for India – so, I will take this gladly. I think India bowled pretty well in this Test match excepting on the 1st day, where they were probably a bit nervous. It is their much talked about batting that let them down – they need to get their act together soon because the next Test starts on Friday.

Cheers,

Thyaga
