Looking better to good

The last post I made last night was quite a doom-n-gloom affair. Pardon me; if you've been an Indian fan for long enough, you get to thinking in certain patterns. Needless to say, the score this morning was a shocker. (Though at one point at about 3 AM, I staggered out to see that six wickets had fallen, and went back to bed, still expecting a late fightback from the Aussies). Its pretty obvious what must happen today for India to win this match (or to take the right steps towards doing so): they must bat out the day. If they do so, they will have enough runs at the end of it. In that sense, Pathan and Sehwag are the right duo to start the day's proceedings. Pathan is positive, Sehwag is Sehwag, and they both are good runners between the wickets.
