Test cricket - July 2008

About Cricket

England is 146/5 in their second innings/second test and trail South Africa by 173 runs. I am very happy about the paper tiger's failure as i was aghast when SA failed in first innings of the first test. I sincerely feel that SA would take the series comfortably to their winning ways !

India would start the test series against Sri Lanka this week. I expect India to win the series and i will be greatly disappointed with any other result as Lankan team is depleted without Malinga and Mahroof; Murali is not taking wickets in recent past.

I dont give a great weightage to Mendis threat and i sincerely feel that it was just an odd day in Asia Cup finals. As every Indian cricket fan is aware, India would make one unknown guy famous in every tour (like Amla against Spin bowling recently).

Let us also hope that Sachin Tendulkar would surpass the maximum century record in the first test itself instead of making us to wait longer !
