Bowlers,Harbhanjan Singh and Praveen Kumar should open the Batting !

Australia just won the Vadodra ODI by just 4 runs and lead 1-0 in the seven match series….They piled up 292 and the Indians replied with 288/8…It would have been an improbable win had the Indians pulled it off and scored the 9 runs required of the final over

Was Pointing Playing for India !?…we should consider him for India’s highest Sporting Award !

Australia had held the Border-Gavaskar Test Trophy for Test Series played between India and Australia

India won back this Trophy by beating them 2-0 in the Series that just concluded

Just a strong reflection on the strange playing tactics and strategies of the Australian Captain,Pointing that has provoked me to even classify this blog under the category of ‘Insider Trading ‘!….Of course this should not take away any of the Indian team’s Glory in beating the Champions

Was Pointing,the Australian Captain playing for India ?….the way he threw his wicket in the earlier tests demands some investigation screamed my Son
