Phewwwwwww.....The series has really become exciting now. Congratulations to Pak team for levelling the series. The third test will be more exciting now and both teams has everything to play for.

Cheers,

Amid all the din of this Indo-Pak series, another part of the subcontinent provided the backdrop for the finest side in the world. Inside the dens of the Lankan Lions, with Muthaih Muralitharan taking about 27 wickets in 3 tests, the Aussies pummeled the Lankans 3-0. No amount of praise can be enough for this achievement & it only shows that all the 3 sub-continental teams have miles to go before we can match their consistent class. (When Murali took 28 wickets against us during our tour of the Emerald Isles, we came back badly mauled).

They have been playing as often & as intensely as us. They too have had their injury problems (McGrath) & other avoidable issues (Shane Warne). Their finest captain & arguably the most doughty warrier had just bowed out. But nothing seems to daunt these champions. The humid, murky conditions of Kandy or the blazing frying pan of Sharjah. They are the true champs.

All of us, who are keenly following the Indo-Pak series, let's doff our hats to the true tigers of the game (no wonder their jersy-colour is yellow).

While the world argues whether Mukesh's song from Sambandh was better than Rafi's song from Chirag in 1969, someone in the same year sang 'roop tera mastana'.

All jokes aside, 10/10 for subtleness. Loved the metaphoric attempt.

Congratulations for Indian team for their victory in test series as well, they deserved it, now they have become a good combination, in my opinion they are second best after Australia.

The current Indian team has not only showed desire to win but also there is great amount of consistency...

There is not a single person in Indian team who can be considered indispensible. If not Sachin, Dravid will score. If not Dravid, Laxman/Yuvraj/Sehwag will score.

In bowling department, we too were without Zaheer, Harbhajan and company. Rookies like Pathan, Balaji did the job for India.

So apart from a great playing 11 we have a good bench strength and backup players. So I guess it is just the begining of golden era in Indian cricket smile.gif

Also, it will be unfair if there is no mention of Pakistani hospitality. They have been a great host for this series...

Cheers,

Yes Indian team did play well consistently!!

I am proud of each of them for all their effort...

This series has opened a new venue for Peace and prosperity for both countries. Thank you Pakistan and all you brothers and sisters there who have made our team feel totally at home smile.gif

ps: I was quite upset reading the papers that Inzy lashed at Sohaib sad.gif .. that was very very unfair. I dont think it was right to put all the onus on Sohaib. Poor guy was hurt with that wrist injury and feeling very bad that he couldnt take part in the 2nd innings totally sad.gif and it wasnt a 3-0 series - Pakistan team did try their best. Cricket is a game of luck and effort in equal doses. We win some we lose some sad.gif

Time for suffering a historic defeat at the hand of your arch-rivals.

Some excerpts of what one writer had to say about all of this in Dawn's Sport page

Clearly there was no plan on how Pakistan would go about saving the match. It seemed to have been left to the batsmen to devise their own individual strategy, to each his own. What they had in common was an aversion to stay at the wicket and even the fact that the Indians kept dropping catches, almost as if they wanted to earn their win, not be gifted it, was scorned.

Pakistan's batsmen were determined to do it their way. Which was to compete against one another on who was the more irresponsible. The Test match and the series was lost within minutes of the day's play beginning, from the nonchalance of the batsmen who were not out overnight.

They showed the same cluelessness that they had shown in the first innings against the swinging ball. Nothing had been learnt and, therefore, there was nothing to forget. It seems pointless to go down the order and describe how each one got out.

Pakistan just threw in the towel. It is for the PCB to find out what went wrong for something went horribly wrong. Pakistan has lost before this and has been outplayed and the margin of defeat has been heftier than an innings and 131 runs.

Was a 2-0 result ever in any doubt!

Too good India.

I agree extenok, it certainly hurts. This can be proven by the fact that Ganguly is the only Indian captain who will (most probably) retain his captaincy after returning from Pakistan's tour. In past all the captains returning from Pak had lost their captaincy...
