A good slap on Dhoni's face for crying and asking for spinning track post 1st test match. :->
He asked for bounce. The first pitch and this pitch both take turn, just that this pitch also had very good bounce. So what he asked for was right, just that their spinners were better bowlers and our batsmen sucked.
If we go talent wise, if SRT is in form, he can outplay KP (well just sayin')
2 years back, maybe. Today, no way! He's in fairly good form and timing the ball, just that at nearly 40 his reflexes are not quick enough. He scored a 100 in the Ranji game a few weeks ago. But against Test quality bowlers, it's unlikely that he'd get a 100 again unless it's a really flat surface.
All out in 44.1 overs Even though most of the players scored less than 10(decimal ) I noticed that most of them did hit the boundary. Only Dhoni, Ashwin and Zaheer didn't hit a single boundary. Ashwin atleast has a 2 digit score.
