Tendulkar gone. 30 overs to Go. Tense moments.
But I just looked out of the window and the light has deterioriated considerably. Very little chance of play to go on much longer.

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

I won't think so. Considering the depth in remaining batting, a hour i.e. 15 overs are enough to get India all out. I will consider the match drawn only if light remains bad till after 4:30.

P.S. And after I typed that, umpires have walked back into middle. Looks like play is going to resume soon.

P.P.S. 3:50pm local Some dark clouds hang above. Seems rather gloomy. The players walk onto the field. Apparently play may actually resume.

According to cricinfo.com commentator, it very dark and gloomy in the stadia. I wonder why they have resumed the play. Pressue tactics by Aussies?

\N

Finally, sense strokes, and the players shake hands. It's called off, with 10 overs to go still. A great Test, until the last few moments when it just drifted along without much intent from either side

So its offical now. Match drawn.

.....and the verbal battle resumes, this time between Zaheer and Ponting.

NOW it feels like India vs Auz.

Uncalled for by Zaheer. Speak with your bat or ball and keep the tongue firmly in your mouth.

I think Zaheer is right in his comment. Ponting started it all by saying it was Aussies who played aggresive cricket. Zaheer has probably got on his nerve by citing the poor run-rate of the Aussies all through the test, barring a few exceptions.

Zaheer let his ball and bat do the talking and has every right to speak up against the arrogant Aussies. Its not bhai-chara cricket, mate.

Yes but do you remember what happened in Zaheer tried to get aggressive with the Aussies in that memorable final in 2003?

Can we stop living in the past and look to the future? How many times will we keep barking the same tree all over again? He has had a fantastic Test Match both with bat and ball and his words are that of confidence more than anything else. What he said was not wrong, Aussies could not get him and Bhajji out for a good 80 runs. He only said what happened in the match. Did he say anything out of context?

This is a different Zaheer Khan. He has come a full circle since then. I have nothing but praise for this Khan who loves his Yezdi.

Sure can, but let us not forget our ability to apply past experience to a similar situation in the present or the future. What happened in the past is very very important - we lost a World Cup in that first over.

Moreover, it is just as important not to live in a fool's paradise - we tend to get carried away by one good performance when consistency is more important than brave words.

Its just that our team have never been good at backing up hard talk with hard work. I would wait until the next couple of tests to comment on Zaheer's talk.
