Welcome the young 'un

India have batted deep in this second one-day and in so doing, have shoved a newbie, S. Badrinath, down to number seven. After watching his team lurch to 75-5, he finally got his chance. Though the required target is not that far away, the tension isn't absent. Its just the tailenders after this and Murali still has six overs to go. All in all, this is a very good chance for Badri to bat till the end (and hopefully, his captain will stay with him). It'll be a nice little baptism by fire, and will make demands of his temperament that will stand him in good stead (perhaps when he makes his test debut later this year).

It's good to see that the little test turned out well for him. But do you think a Test debut is likely?

and don't forget the catch he took which might have turned the match. our test team can do with fielders like that to support the bowlers.

DCSiva: I think it will happen later this year.

Sumit: Yup, his fielding is another plus point. Lets hope he gets a chance to play a longer innings in the remaining games.
