Quick preview of 2nd test match
SA made a clean bowling sweep making India loose 10 wickets for mere 76 runs and finally innings-and-90-run victory. Bhajji feels it is not just pitch which is red caused that paltry first innings score though Indan captain had a differnt view. If pitch is greener then Kumble who won the toss should have opten for bowling rather than batting on a seamers pitch. Dale Steyn who is star in the first innings with five wicket claim believes India didnt have any game strategy once they start losing wickets. Except for Ganguly who put some resistance in 2nd innings, all the paper stars who raked in big money in IPL made India lose the test match.
Third test match preview
The biggies Waseem Jaffer, Dravid, Dhoni & VVS Laxman back to back failures will add trouble in 3nd test match at Kanpur. Only hope is changes made to squad – Ishant and Munaf are called back into the team to stress the importance of bowlers. Kumble injury puts Powar as replacement. Bajji and spinners have to do their extra best to tie the test series. Overall I feel with second test win it is difficult for India to recover from the loss in 3rd test.
