It was a terrific year for India in ODIs. However in test matches they lost the #1 ranking in the same year after England debacle.

Nice post on test cricket, which is evergreen and classic, nice to know that England has undefeated record out of which 4 is against India. Dravid is the highest scorer.

DS said...

@ Akshay Kumar
Thanks for pointing that out, I have corrected the mistake.
Thanks for your comment, I have checked your post and commented too.

DS said...

@ Arnab
I think you meant heart breaking instead of heartwarming!!
Yeah England have been the team to beat this year.
Wish you and your family a Happy and Joyful 2012:)

DS said...

@ samyyyr
Yeah, the year we won the World Cup:)
But in tests we were dismal.

DS said...

@ Deguide
Yes, test cricket is the best format. Its evergreen, I love it the most...
Dravid was in terrific form this year in tests, hope he continues it in 2012:)

quite an interesting post .. never knew that R Dravid is the No. 1 batsman for this year in test cricket..kind of lost touch with what's happening in cricket after the world cup...

DS said...

@ rahul
Thanks rahul. Dravid has been in fine form all through the year 2011. Even in England, where other batsman were falling like nine pins, he batted manly...
