Indian Cricket team displayed what it is really capable of.. succumbing to quality pace bowling by Dale Steyn and Mokel. The same pitch played true for Steyn and Morkel where our Indian bowlers could not get wickets at all.. its a pity!!
Though I think the Indian batsmen and the bowlers failed, the big share of blame should go to the bowlers. Lack of direction and strategy to contain and get wickets showed the Indian think-tank in poor light. Adding insult to injury is the statement from MS Dhoni that Harbhajan is a big match player and will come good. What can be a bigger match than this for him to come good. Harbhajan should be summarily dropped and we should experiment with newer spin bowlers.
The team for the next test has been announced and it looks comical. They have brought back Dinesh Karthick and Sreesanth dropping Wridhiman Saha. How does Dinesh Karthick add value to the line-up and he is anyways going to sit out. Lets see how the Indian team re-groups after this debacle and would they bounce back in the second test at Kolkata? I guess not.. we are a long way away from being the real no.1 team in Test Cricket.
