Indian team has been found wanting in the match, they have had to play some tough cricket and look what happened.. What amazes me is the way we have lost the match ..

India needs a firm grip over the way things are going on , a lot of patching needs doing , we have spent so much time on the IPL that the matches where it matters .. well we have seen what has happened .. the so-called top 3 did not do well at all, I don’t want to be mean to the little master but will he ever perform when the Indian team needs him the most .. I don’t see many matches where he has dug his heels and said I AM NOT GETTING OUT ..

Bhajji came and hit some shots but it was too late for anything ..

I know test match is a tough cricket .. India did not look tough enough.. I don’t know how the politics works in the team, but we never looked like a winning team, While watching the match in the first innings when things were not going the english way , Yet they looked a TEAM. a tough team..  and they all worked together , Not One player or top 3 or whatever .. they worked together .. If strauss could not make runs the tail ender Broad was taking india for a ride.  The english opener did not score many runs but the other players picked up ..

Indians had a sorry score card.. first innings Broad took us apart and this innings Bresnan took us apart.. I feel sorry for our boys and I hope they get there act together ..

We have the talent but why are we not giving them the chance, why are the likes of rohit , virat not there , we play a lot of cricket the ipl , the one dayers and then we went to the Caribbean , we should have been on the ball raring to go but alas it did not happen…  I know many of the players will make it a excuse of too hectic a schedule , well all i will say to them is say no to IPL… which i doubt any of the players will do because of the Moolah involved..

Sorry if i sound harsh but It was hurting watching the matches and the way we have played , A few players did not go to west indies what were they going back home should they not have been preparing for this tour, I a ma big big fan of Zaheer and Yuvraj but I felt they looked Unfit , they had not been going to the Gym while in india .. working out , keeping fit.. Our team is not as fit as the english team.

We are a team of individual stars hoping that they will perform, it seems we can never play as a TEAM.  Look at the fitness of both the teams and I am sure anyone can see ..  One side ready to perform at the highest level, the other side individual left to their own devices HOPING they will perform ..

When we are a top team a number one team .. a lot depends on the bench strength but we have been found wanting ,  when it loses a pace man who has a lot of variety in his armoury we don’t have a replacement …

Sehwag is to come in the next match lets see what he brings .. He is a great player we all know but what can he alone do, Yet I do have this feeling that with him in the team the opponents bowlers will have something to think about so that might work in our favour.  I hope Gambhir comes back too..

What I mean about being tough and fit is that on the first day of the second test match Gambhir was rolling and diving in the nets on the arm supposedly with a bad injury or broken,  yet he is sitting outside injured , where is the theme gone when the going gets tough the tough get going,  Thats when boys become MEN, I would have expected Gambhir to walk out and Play, there have been players who have actually played with broken bones, I remember Kumble bowling with a broken jaw.. Now that man was tough he would not sit outside miss a game .. Thats the type of players we need when we have such high-profile tours, Winning west indies we were complacent.

The english team has put us right where we are, sitting on glory majority of the time.. I hope the third test brings something new and our boys forget this loss and come out raring and playing as a team .. I know we can’t win the series now but lets not lose it boys .. GET up and DO your best …

There has to be some toughness that needs to come, it is a big test about our character we have been very sloppy in every department of  the game , its time we showed the world why we ARE the number one team in the world and toughen up..

Hopefully Sehwag will bring that toughness in the team..  We are a side known for our batting and batting is what has let us down , the bowlers though not at par with the english yet did a good job for india..  its time the players did something with the bat and showed that they deserve to be in the team..  It is time to perform boys… All the best …  .. See you at edgbaston, birmingham.. Hopefully I will see you play on the weekend … My tickets are on way ..

 

TRI COLOUR IS THE COLOUR OF OURS — COME ON INDIA SHOW THEM STARSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssssss … .

  1. Oh, so they lost the second test also? I am quite out of touch with cricket news these days… Well Bikram, IPL & champions league are REAL cricket and they are the ones that matter the MOST these days. Test match is like rest – 5 days off.

    In fact the way this “battle of 22 yards” is turning out in a “Battle of 10 overs n 20 overs” people have lost interest in the test matches and most of the people even don’t bother whether India Lost or won, perhaps this is good for the Player’s health….:)

    All the Best Bikram for the upcoming match and as you are going to be there at the ground so we can expect some wonderful pics too in the next post….

    Definitely disappointing..Yet I don’t think they can take it more seriously.Whether it’s of IPL or skipping the series of decent test matches with west Indies,they blame each other.BCCI or players,all are into the same thing..Total review needed. (but the very phenomenal home grounds of England,that we should consider.)
