Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

Middle order still dissapointing

The Indians are now 56 runs ahead with 4 wickets in hand. Could have been much better but the middle order had yet another disappointing day. Dravid 26, Laxman – the supposed terror for the Aussies, 4, Gang 9 – what’s up with these folks. I am getting the feeling that Sachin’s prescence makes some difference to the Indian middle order. The other players probably feel a little less pressure with Sachin around and play their natural game, even when he does not contribute. We really missed him today – Chennai is his happy hunting ground and the game could really have been taken away from the Aussies today itself.

Still its not too bad – Kaif and Patel needs to settle themselves and make sure that we get another 100 runs at least – if not 150. That would be a good lead on a detiriorating pitch. Remember that India has to bat last. Last time in Chennai we made heavy weather of a 155 run chase.
Congrats to Sehwag on a good 155 – otherwise we would have been in real trouble. I won’t say that he has returned to form – with his attitude while batting, he can really get going anyday – a few chances here and there does help 😉
Congrats to Warne on being the highest wicket-taker. Just a small statistics here:
Warne v/s India: 33 wkts @ 54 avg
v/s England: 132 @ 23 avg.
