Well notexpected not Dhoni's Brigade but, yes its true that Dhoni and Co. really played for the draw as highlights that Indian Cricket are not yet so hungry for a win. Day 1 and 2 were really wasted in just making few runs and thats where the match was lost. Dravid and Gamghir really played into the hands of English bowlers. On the other hand Kevin Pieterson had some other ideas and shoed some good batting display and got a good score. But the talking point of the match in media was some incidents between YUVI and KP that really helped media to remember this test for a long time.

YUVI was termed as PIE-CHUCKER by KP and Yuvi also seemed to enjoy this one so enjoy

It was a tense dressing when England gave a target of 387 runs to India to chase to be a winner in the first test match in Chennai. But, unlike the 1st innings Veeru has some other plans. Started the 2nd Innings with a fair plan to end the run chase by the pre lunch session on the 5th day. He scored at a brisk treaing the ball litterally into four peices in the first ten over only. Not only Kevin Pieterson was worried but some of the members of English Media were also tense as they have already declared the visitors as the favourites to win. Veeru not only scored runs quickly but also made sure that the baller gets in pressure. He scored runs as if he is playing a 20 20 match. Completed his brilliant half century in a very short time, and laid down a great plan for unbelievable victory for the home team. As he got out the remainig plans were executed by The Maestro and YUVI. Who made that they have to complete this run chase without loosing any more wickets.

The icing on the cake was THE LEGEND enjyoing his 41st TON to make his team victorious.

Now thats call for celebration so , enjoy !

IT was a low scoring first day and after the start of second it seemed that the 22 yards has many things to say as the spinners wrapped up the English Batting order for a mere 300+ runs. The pitch really showing signs of turns as BHAJJI and MISHRA took 3 each to fold the English scoresheet for the first. In reply India also got a big shock, VEERU played one back on stumps to cherish English seemers.

It woud be interesting to see how the strip behaves on day 3 and 4 which would decide the result of the match.

Enjoy live action on NEO SPORTS in INDIA.

Cheers !

The 1st test has started and England have won the toss and elected to bat. It seems that they have a gameplan in place. All the Indian players have a black ribbon on the sleeves for the mumbai blasts. Players also observed two minutes silence for those who lost lives in mumbai.

After the testing time in the ODI its now the time for the Test series between India and England. After the shocked but expected pull out of the Englishmen from the ODI series its good that that sense prevails and the players after paying tribute to the people who lost lives but won the battle in the Mumbai blasts the cricket is back again.

Lets see whats gonna happen to the Englishmen when DHONI's brigade will try to wrap things up quickly.

India have announced a 15-man squad for the two-Test series against England beginning in Chennai on 11 December.

Yuvraj Singh, 26, who scored successive centuries in the aborted one-day series with England, is back in the Test squad for the first time since April.

He could fill the middle order gap created by Sourav Ganguly's retirement.
Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha, who toured Sri Lanka but has yet to make his Test debut, is in the party but left-arm seamer RP Singh is omitted.

Yuvraj, who made his Test debut against New Zealand in October 2003, has had an inconsistent career in the longer format.

After the ODI series a good thing for all the cricket lovers around the globe and it is that the ECB has given green flag to the TEST SERIES with a request of changing.

This step is understandable as the security of Englisg Players are also of utmost importance for Global peace.

So lets wait and watch the teams in action.


Cheers !
