Cheers, one-up!

I couldn't afford to stay up too late Tuesday morning so I hoped like hell India would wrap up before lunch, preferably restricting Australia to less than 200, and win by over 300. All of that came true. Zak did a Akramesque number on the Aussies in the first two overs, and after a frustrating little 9th wicket stand, Mishra wrapped up things nicely. Well done boys. What a pleasure to see Indian quicks knocking over stumps, and a new Indian leggie, a pair of Delhi boys turning into a very good Indian opening partnership, Dhoni playing like his old self, Dada sticking it up everyone's noses again, SRT showing his mastery, and finally, the aggressiveness throughout. Remember this game lads; try and aspire to these levels again and again.

This is a big win for India...it's a collective performance from all the players that took India to a great win...

Ottayan: At least at Mohali its done!

Homer: Totally agree. Complacency is the biggest danger ahead. And the return of Kumble :)

SV: Agreed, I don't think I've seen such a combined performance in a while.

Q: Those balls that straighten after pitching are magical to watch.

Well played, one hand on the trophy.

Hopefully Stu Clark will be fit for the second dig and Lee finds his mojo so we can at least put up a fight!

I don't think the remaining tests are going to be dull ones. And don't forget, India doesn't do well as favorites!
