Frankly, watching whole days cricket and ultimately when I see OUR Team India giving away 379 runs and manage only 4 wickets, dishearten me. But it wasn't all that bad as it really sound. Our Indian team did quite well, specially Rudra Pratap Singh( R P Singh). Although he is really young and has played just a handful of matches, he has performed in every single game. Here is the Score Card of day 1.
Looking little back, yesterday Indian Coach Greg chappell had hinted something very similar to where our team stands right now, after Day 1. In this Press Conference, he reminds us that Adelaide match when Australian team where 400 for 5 wickes, with Ricky Ponting on unbeaten century. He says Anil was their man as he kept on pegging away and took 5 wickets next day to turn the match. And India won a test in Australia after a long time. Here's what more he has said but really, Anil Kumble bowled very well and could easily have got a couple of wickets!!
In this interview, he also mentions a need for a genuine fast bowler for India who he thinks will win matches in any conditions, just kind West Indians used to have when they dominated the cricket world in seventies. He has also hinted that they are keeping an eye on a couple of bowlers of that capability but didn't took any names... So whats your guess, I'll say V.R.V Singh from Punjab or may be Munaf Patel from Maharashtra!?!
