Second Test Day 3: Pak vs. India

The Indian team once again showed a lot of character by stepping up to the challenge of chasing a huge score. With this innings Dhoni has proven that he can adapt to Test cricket. If he can keep up his wicket-keeping standards he can be a fixture in the team for a very long time. Hats off to Pathan, Dravid and VVS. Dravid now has two centuries as opener!

Sachin once again failed when the team needed him to deliver (what as he thinking when he walked before the umpire’s decision?). A sign of how much has changed in Indian cricket. In a moment of crisis Indian fans hope for some Viru magic or some solidity from Dravid. A Sachin knock is only a bonus! Its nice to see the team no longer dependent on him.

I hope the pitch for the third Test suits the bowlers. I would hate to see another high scoring match which produces no result!
