What a paradox!
India beats SL by 169 runs in the 1st ODI. Previously SL had shattered Pak in Tests who smashed Australia in Tests. Now will Aus beat India to complete a circle?!
I don't think toss would have made any difference, JGK.
In the third innings of both the Tests Pakistan declared at 2-286 and 3-293, proving that the pitch had not deteriorated on days 3 and 4.
Australia scored 303 and 246 in their first innings (second innings of the Tests) on days 2 and 3.
Vinay and Vas,
I am also a Michael Clarke supporter. But his form has been disappointing in 2010-11. He played well on the SCG in the one-dayer a fortnight ago. And on the spinning Indian pitches he will do well as a spinner. Remember his 6-9 in the Mumbai Test seven years ago? It could well be a case of Seven Year Itch!
