Number 1 in tests!

Posted on December 8th, 2009 by by Sameek

Sorry for the long delay. India has finally made the top spot in ICC test rankings. Yippie!! This feat IMHO isn’t just a fluke. India has been playing great cricket for last few years. The fielding has improved and the players are more professional. I think the ground work started when Ganguly took over the captaincy. And this would have been achieved a lot sooner but for Greg Chappell. Anyhow, we are finally there.

The thing that worries me is the bowling. All the fast bowlers we have except for Zaheer Khan are utterly inconsistent. They bowl wonderfully one day and the next day, they do everything wrong. I think Venkatesh Prasad should be brought back as bowling coach. Its also good that Ishant Sharma has been dropped. Hopefully he will come back into the team as a much better bowler.

As regards to batting, as long as we have Sehwag, Gambhir, Yuvraaj and Dhoni, we needn’t worry too much. But I guess the selectors will have to scratch their heads when Sachin, Dravid and Laxman retires.

Digressing from the subject though, I hope to write a lot more posts on topics like India, Bengal, Atheism, religion, Communism etc. stay Tuned for more…
