2nd Test Match, India Vs Australia, SCG - 3-7 January 2012

2nd Test Match, India Vs Australia, SCG - 3-7 January 2012

India won the toss and elected to bat in the 2nd test match Vs Australia. Both the teams were unchanged for this match. Gambhir woefully short of runs, continued his wretched run of form scoring a duck!! Dravid who has been the saving face of Indian batting in recent times was also out early making just 5. Sehwag and Sachin began solidifying the innings but Sehwag too was out just for 30. Laxman departed early too, making just 2. Pattinson was the pick of the bowlers making life difficult for the batsman scalping 3 before lunch.

After lunch, Kohli and Sachin too departed, leaving India tottering at 124/6... Pattinson has taken 4 wickets and Siddle has taken 2 wickets till now... India are struggling at 161/6 at the moment... Tea is still 20 minutes away...

India have cut a sorry figure so far in the series Vs Australia... They have lacked the application and patience required to play a test match... Just like the England series of 2011 they seem to have no fight and tooth... Gambhir and Kohli must soon play a substantial innings or else they must be replaced... Even Laxman has looked below par till now...

Lets see what happens in the rest of the match...

India just won't win a single match ,this series!!not being pessimistic but realistic.We are far too dependent on few individuals-dravid,Sachin,Zaheer to be precise..
The wall-the unsung hero

As long as the Indian selectors pick reputation over current form , the Indians will never move forward !! when the Indian players start playing for a spot in the team , and not have a guaranteed spot that's when the Indian team will improve ... I don't care how many runs u scored in the past if ur not inform n ready n prepared then stay home !! Or give way to the young talent ...
