Reviving the five year old thread. India inching towards victory, any guesses on who would finish off the rest two? Prince still is a thorn in the flesh!!

5 year old ?

This thread has seen some action today. Lotsa people cheering India today. I get the feeling that Prince will remain not out.

My bad!!! I searched for cricket and the result took me to a five year old page!! Let me find some place to hide my face!!!


And the poll added to the confusion :P


And hope, as it is put on cric info, Prince and Morkel do not turn out to be the VVS and Ishant of that Oz test!!

yes!! What a match it was. These guys are reviving what test match cricket is!! I have been thoroughly enjoying the test matches of late!!

Had a gala time!! Me and MX6 chatting over gtalk as I follow the commentary on cricinfo and he watching it live from home!!



Congratulations!!

P.S: Laxman made 96 and the victory margin is 88, another match saved by VVS, so who will win the MOM?

P.S = How about dropping raina and giving Pujara/vijay a chance in 2nd test?
Now what else can i predict

brilliant effort and now the last test will be a great one.
Also No.1 ranking and reputation intact

T20s are actually a boon. There are so many batsmen today in world cricket who cant play a patient game in Tests. It could also be some positive cricket.

Check this one for coincidence pointed out by a guy in Cricinfo

Two boxing day tests won by two higher ranked visiting teams from the northern hemisphere who have traveled to the Southern Hemisphere on the 4th day after a crushing defeat in the previous test in the countries that has proved to be their long time nemesis. Any more coincidence??" I guess this much does fine.

Most timid pace attack ever was on display yesterday.

But how is the wicket doing? Can someone watching the match update? This being fifth day how is the bounce, is it keeping too low?

A draw or a South African Win. Scoring 340 odd is difficult in the last day. I dont think they will try to score fast and try to win. Probably sehwag may give it a try.
