Chennai – Chepuak ground – India Vs. England – 1st test match.
After 5-0 win over England in ODIs, India started strong favourites in this 2 test match series. England having a much better bowling attack than Aussies, bowled out India cheaply in the 1st innings and gained 75 runs lead.
In 2nd innings, England showed poor application while setting a target to India and finally managed to give 387 as target. They lacked positiveness.
Sewag showed the power of positiveness and reduced the target by 100 runs within very short period toward 4th day end.
Needing 250+ to win, India started today (final day) badly, Dravid out early. Come on WALL!, you CAN.
Sachin and Yuvi showed the brilliance, Sachin scored his 41st test century. Yuvi proved as a test player in place of Sourav (may be, more consistency needed).
India won by 6 wkts! Wow!!!
Same venue, against Pak, Sachin missed to complete the job and India lost. That moment came to my mind often, but this time luck favours Sachin.
For England, Andrew Strass and Swann are the positives.
Indians created history ! India becoming stronger and stronger after 26/11?!
