Team india is on a roll. Series win against Australia made them the top contenders to replace worlds best team and now with this improbable win we have just proved that we are almost there .Yes , All we need to do now is to conquer srilankan lions in their own den and to keep up the winning rate abroad.
Mondays win was a special one. Very special indeed . After those gruesme terror attacks, atleast cricket lovers like me have something to cheer abut. Winning on home soil is no new thing for us . I dont think india had any chances of winning the game till 4th day post lunch session . India was facing a defeat that looked more or less inevitable . Chasing more than 350 runs in the fourth innings n a fifth day pitch is not an easy task .But the brilliant knock by sehwag set opened up the game against all dds . Time and again sehwag has proved how imprtant he is for this indian line up . What t osay about sachin. !! He is GD . Yes , cricket is a relegion for me like millions f others and sachin is my GoD . Scoring his 41st hundred through the last winning strke made my day . I mean i was tired to see him getting out in 90s. He would have Got more than 100 international hundreds in DI and test combined if he had not been out in 90s . Yuvaraj as usual played his natural game and thats what made easy fr him t scre runs quickly .
.The test has brought in lot of positives fr the indian cricket TEAM. it showed the temperament ,fighting spirit and ability of indian cricket team to win under any circumstances .After australia i dont think any team has dominated us in a test on home soil. England did really well to control 70 percent of the test .They had almost won the test . Just one session took the game away from them .Strauss played exceptionally well . Hitting two centuries in a same test in n kids job that to in subcontinent.
All in all it was a wonderfull test match . The best thing was after a long time there was a result in a test match played in chennai . I just hope our team conitnues the gd form and replace australia as the worlds best team soon .
