RETURNING INDIAN FAN - I saw this match on TV and I was pleased. The bowling clicked for a change. It just goes to show that India does not have the best of a bowling attack like other countries. But if we carefully select from what we have we are bound to string it together. For a change bowling, batting and fielding clicked today. Joyous match for Indian fans. And this is what we would like to see in future - not total capitulation.

It is nice to have both Jadeja and Irfan in the team. But expectations on Jadeja should not be too much, as long as the pace blowers take wickets at the start and then Jadeja is good to come and bowl the teasing line and take further wickets. But do not expect him to take the wickets if front line bowlers are not bowling well in the first 10 to 15 overs. Irfan can still be front line bowler. B.Kumar also bowls well at start. What we need now couple of them to bowl at death, when teams keep wickets and takes on the bowlers. All is well when the wickets falls at the start, but need to cover the death bowling when team has wickets.
