An Indian Civilizational Perspective

India and WI draw the First Test Match!

I dont know about the rest of the folks – but I was decidedly disappointed at the result of the first cricket test between India and WIs – we should have WON the match!! We had 3.2 overs and the last pair on ground.. and we couldn’t get them out after that superlative performance from Wasim Jaffer. This was a test of frustrations galore.. Gayle not being given out when he was in the first innings.. and then Dhoni going out in the manner that he did.. and finally the result!!

After the thrashing that we received in the ODIs I was hoping we will make it up in the tests.. but oh well!! I guess the team needs to rally around and together and see why it still chokes!!

Gayle punished Anil Kumble for a huge six in the over before tea after the leg-spinner resorted to bowling looping leg breaks in order to force the batsman out of his shell.
