After doing not so well in the Carribean Series the players and the team was suffering from big injuries and thats what showed in the start of the English Series. The warm up match was actually one sided wherein the county team played very well against the worlds number 1 test team. However Dhoni brigade any how managed not to loose again the county team. But the failure continued in the 1st Test, the Grand one where Indian was playing against the Brits in the 2000th Test match ever.
Mind games were played to the best wherein the Brits told the media that they have a lot of sportsman spirit for Sachin Tendulkar but still they would not allow him to score his 100th 1st class ton on this ocassion and they meant it as they bowled well to the indians and wrapped up the match by winning it quite comfortably and did not even allow Sachin to make a fifty in both the innings. However THE WALL Mr. Dravid was phenomenol and played as a wall but could not save the match for his country.
Lets see what happens in the next one till then enjoy.
