Now India goes into 2nd test match against West Indies at Eden Gardens on Monday 14th November 2011 hoping that their young and in-form spinners will wrap up 3 match series. The Indian team won the last 3 test series against West Indies and now they are hoping to make it 4 in the row and that too without much problems.
Once again the middle order batsman, the very admired and liked, Rahul Dravid solidified winnings of his team with 62th Test 50 runs and thus to take the team past 200 mark in post lunch session. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar who looked in his great form during the knock of 38 off seventy one balls actually hit 5 boundaries during the stay at the crease. More so, Gautam Gambhir made the team proud with 8 boundaries in 103 ball innings that he played.
After dismissal of Tendulkar and Gambhir, Dravid tried to add more 56 runs and thus kept the West Indies bowlers at a distance. It can be said that there can’t be better batting side than Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh.
Just like Kotla, even the Eden Gardens has been sluggish pitch as of now. Indeed, once MS Dhoni criticized the pitch after Twenty20 against England. Let’s see if India makes it up and shows it wonder again at the grounds, knocking off West Indies and proving that they are a better team.
