West Indies averted defeat by just one wicket in the Antigua Test, and India felt the absence of Harbhajan Singh. S Rajesh, who wrote the bulletin for this game, told Amit Varma that not only would Harbhajan's presence have meant more penetration, it would also have given the Indians more overs, because Harbhajan would have gone through his overs much quicker than VRV Singh and Munaf Patel, who dawdled on the field.

They also discuss how this Test would have given both teams the confidence to be aggressive, and has set up the rest of the series beautifully. Listen in.
