India triumph in a thrilling encounter

Posted on: 15 December 2008

Tendulkar

A blistering knock from Sehwag ensured the target of 387 was very much gettable while Tendulkar’s century coupled with Yuvraj’s brilliant comeback innings helped India record the fourth highest run chase in Test cricket. The chennai test between India and England turned out to be a fabulous contest in which the hosts showed a lot of resolve and won comprehensively.

India did not have a say when England dominated the first three days and chasing 387 wasn’t easy on a pitch that produced both turn and bounce. But for India, the batsmen have delivered when it mattered most. The fans witnessed a ‘special hundred’ from (and for) Tendulkar—this is his first fourth-innings century in a Test win for India. All through his innings, Tendulkar looked determined and equally brilliant while Yuvraj ably supported him with an amazing knock. All those critics of Tendulkar better watch out.

A fantastic win this is for Team India. With the momentum going its way, this Indian team is becoming capable of doing anything.

CONGRATS to Team India

Thnku Prasanthi.

For the first time in his career Sachin has finished a match. After 19 years of cricket. I hope he’s finally put his mental devils to rest.

That was a terrific victory, though nowadays only a victorya against the aussies gets attention.

@rksadhu: Why’re u saying thank you?

@lazybug: Bcoz I represent the Indian team in my blog 😉
