Quick preview of 1st test match
Sehwag is the star of first match with blazing triple century knock. He missed the great opportunity of beating Lara’s record, he should have been bit patient as it is difficult to amass such runs again. Its great accomplishment for a player who is struggling for form and the man made it to record books with quick 300 off 270 balls. First test that ended in draw demonstrated what a batting pitch scores look like. Dravid joined the premier 10,000 runs club and the 25th test hundred. The credit is also to be given to RSA batsman who frustrated the easily frustrated Sreesanth with back to back boundaries from Smith’s bat. Bowlers on two sides struggled to contain both runs and wickets.
Second test match preview
The middle order – Tendulkar, Ganguly & VVS Laxman failing will add trouble in 2nd test match at Ahmedabad. Bajji’s five wicket haul is impressive and if he gets support from other bowlers India can be a better bowling side. The worrying factor for India is injured Tendulkar who is going to miss the second test. Kaif will be replacing Tendulkar after almost two years. Kaif who had been performing well in domestic matches is a right selection both in fielding and batting departments. Historically we have seen Sehwag cool down after a big knock like the one at first test match and this is advantageous to RSA.
