I respect their decision. I am sure that they are NOT running away or looking for any excuse. Any top team in the world, no matter how badly they are thrashed, will not run away from a contest.
They were going to stay in Taj and play at Brabourne - imagine being in a foreign country when things like today's incident happen. It is scary for their families and i support their decision to go back.

Even I think so. Though most of us would have a tongue-in-cheek thoughts of England trying to avoid a 7-0 whitewash and all, but in the end everyone knows that lives are more important than matches. Atleast this will give the Indian team some deserved rest

As if blasts did not happened in London?
I find this an excuse when such things are happening all over the world. English and the Aussies pretend as there countries are super safe and all other places are dangerous.
Good for them to avoid 7-0 in one days and 2-0 in tests.

I am My friend. They are worse then Set max and Even doordarshan in cutting the coverage and showing ads. Sometimes i feel the ads should be banned during any match so we can atleast enjoy the match and not there crap ads.
And thats solely because they're charging way too much for the Ads, so they have to do justice to the price.

India on the verge of winning the First test at Chennai.
Chasing a mamoth 387 Runs, they need another 30 more runs to win the test
Brilliant batting by Sehwag, Sachin, Yuvraj, Gambhir.

Today Tendulkar will sleep well. The weight of that pakistan defeat was on his shoulders for long.

Really a tough call.
But I think Sachin will be MOM
103* in second innnings & 37 in first innings
Don't forget Viru , Yuvi , Gambhir, Dhoni , Zaheer, Sharma for their valuable contribution.
It's a total team effort

MoM has to be Strauss for his back to back centuries. Else it will be between Shewag and Sachin (both deserve that)

Without that unbelievable blitzkrieg by Sehwag last evening we wouldnt even be talking about victory.

Sehwag deserves it, no two ways about it. He set up this victory for us.

Dream story ends. = Sachin hits century and silence people who says he is not a second innings player
Sehwag = Another brilliance from him and without his innings win was not possible.,
Yuvraj - Relief and a confidence booster for him(IMO its his best test innings so far)
Dravid - He needs to go back to Ranji and sort out his brain.
Laxman- Not his match.
Gambhir - MAtured innings
Zaheer- He has grown leaps and bounds and the reverse swing makes him very dangerous now.

No doubt if we continue like this we will be no.1 in no time.
CHeers!

No doubt Shewag set the platform. But that set platform was well ulilized by Sachin and Yuvi (163 runs undivided patnership). Overall its a good team effort

PS: It goes to Shewag.

MoM - the Team. And no one will complain who ever gets it. The team is playing as one.
