…and what a win !

A fairy-tale script (source: Cricinfo)

Considering it was a match that was almost canceled and was taking place in the shadows and the unhealed wounds of the terror attacks, no one could have scripted a better display of test cricket. That India won against incredible odds is a great cicing onthe cake, but the match itself was Test cricket at its best:  the patient innings building of Strauss, a dream debut opening over from Swann, the surprisingly welcome never-say-die attitude of the Indians, and of course – the brutal strokeplay of Sehwag at the end of Day 4. No other words to describe it other than a savage butchery of the English bowling attack that set up the final day. Sachin finally redeemed himself playing a knock to lead India to victory, and Yuvraj displayed fine compoosure in what could be his breakthrough test innings. Well done India.

And with Test matches like these, who needs 20-20 ?
