A little tougher than anticipated

Well, well. I was doing a bit of a rain dance, and the gawds have obliged. Another not so distinguished performance from the bats. Gambhir was plumb; Viru played a terrible shot; SRT was a bit flaccid; Dravid a trifle unlucky; VVS tentative; Dhoni showed why he is a crap test batsman; and Ganguly paid the price, I think, for taking too many breaks. I didn't ever think this Aussie outfit would be a pushover, and this day is a good reason why.

"Dhoni showed why he is a crap test batsman". Agreed! Amen.

Once again, folks, sorry about the late response.

SP: You called it!

Rabia: Thanks, and nice to see you here. Please stick around :)

Minerva: I feel a sense of loss. Dhoni started off as such an excellent attacking lower-order bat.

Actually, Dhon is not crap batsman. He was just waiting to be made captain to contribute to India's win. If he does that as VC, he will be recognized but Anil Kumble cannot be unseated soon. Anyway he knows nobody will question his place in test squad or even if they do, doesnt matter. So a few failures before becoming captain will not hurt him while it will hasten Kumble's exit.
Smart Cookie, Dhoni is.
