And so they got raped...

Aussies have never been so thoroughly outplayed in the recent past.
There were the odd game or two, but not so much dominated. Not like this.

Indians were all over them right from the beginning.

Like how you'd be if you had Angelina Jolie. Or Shakira.

Something like that.

Michael Clarke was left without options as wickets fell all around him...

There was hardly a moment in which Indians were out of control. And Dhoni was as impressive as anybody while Ponting ( not to mention Kumble ) was made to look pretty ordinary. And out of sorts.
And Mishra was absolutely impressive in his debut. Then again, having 300 plus first class wickets means he's not really a new-kid-on-the-block.

Let's wait and see if the Indian selectors have the balls to make the right decision and drop Kumble for the next two Tests.

But I guess they don't.


  1. Kumble needs to go but I dont think India will drop him.

    Mishra might have to sit out.

    Tough call on him !

  2. I think so too. But it would be the wrong call.

    If we look back, back in the mid 80s and early 90s, Aussies selectors/board made some tough decisions aiming the future develepment of their cricket, and they largely paid off.

    India, and also SL needs to do the same.

  3. With Kotla being his favorite hunting ground... no way. Anil will give way on his own pretty soon.

  4. Yeah, I know it's "no way".

    But past needs to give way to the present - or rather, the future. He's had his shot, now give an opportunity to a youngster. He spoils the chances of the team in my opinion...
