Day 2, Lords, India V England 2011 – a bulletin

  • Looks like a draw on the cards. The pitch looks good for batting !
  • Praveen Kumar, as slow as he may seem, has shown he is might mighty effective and has ensured he is going to be a regular for the series.
  • Ishant is 22, but he needs to learn fast, India cannot afford to have him bowling like this, especially when the spear head of the bowling is limping. He looked ordinary to say the least.
  • Dont expect too much from Bhajji on a slow, low and green track on day 1 and 2. Bhajji could do with a few smiles and he needs to relax !
  • Dhoni is a maverick and trust him to surprise you !
  • Pietersen is maturing as a batsman and that is bad signs for everyone else, seems he is playing for the team and not for the gallery anymore !
  • Geoff Boycott needs to remember that 18 more days of Test Cricket still remain and although this bowling attack minus Zaheer wouldnt scare him Mom I am somehow sure he will be made to eat humble pie not before long !
  • How India would have loved to have Sehwag walk in today and smash the bowling to all parts and have India at 380 for 4 by the end of the day and pushing England to the wall on the last day ! 😉

yea rite… I need to stop !!!! but fantasies of the Sehwagian in me just dont stop !!!! 😀

PK and KP are great characters and at the end of the day this was a heartening pic to see... they did slug it out in the middle !

    Yeah, Only Sehwag could’ve made this match interesting… and even a draw would’ve been a treat to watch, purely coz of Sehwag’s batting.

    Now instead we’ll have to watch a labored and jumping Dravid

    Only the first test… Long way to go we are a much better team for sure but then now is the time to show it…
    Sad on zaheer we need another good bowler as good as him…
    Waiting for sehwag and also want one down so the master comes in makes me nervous but want that 100 today…
