Game Day, India wins the Videocon cup!

Breaking my superstitions I went ahead and subscribed the games on willow.tv; my money did not go waste. YES, India won the game and the series with flying colors. Dhoni finished the game in style by launching 2 massive sixes to complete the formalities. India won the Videocon cup 4-0. Sri Lanka is yet to win in India in this tour.

It was a pleasure to watch many new faces in action; future of Indian Cricket.

Raina, he impressed me right away by his balanced and matured batting ability. The lefthander’s short selection was very prudent and did not want to give anything away. He was firm on his approach and made sure India won the game. Partnership between him and Dhoni was well organized. "Maro Maro" Dhoni played second fiddle while Raina took the lead. Raina is also an amazing fielder, a very promising future Indian team permanent. He was the “Supersub” and he replaced Srisanth.

Venugopal Rao, The youngster’s square cuts bought back reminiscence of GRV. The good old Gundappa’s style seems to have reborn, thanks to little man VenuGopal Rao, another good prospect for the future Indian team with solid batting technique.

Srisanth, he has a smooth run up with a crisp side arm bowling action. He was very impressive in the first few overs, he bowled a perfect line and length but very soon he lost his accuracy and started to bowl too many short balls and paid the toll. He can be tuned and share the new ball with Pathan.

Thanks to some fantastic swing bowling by my “man” Agarkar, he won the well deserved man of the match award,. Ravi Sastri once again talked about his all round ability during the function, this time Agarkar clearly mentioned that he prefers to bowl rather than bat. Promoted Yuvraj Singh started of with a bang played gleeful shots however perished to a superb catch. I feel Raina already holds a team travel ticket however he is still on “RAC”. Yuvraj has to perform to his full potential else Raina’s ticket would be confirmed.

Sachin played an ambitious stroke and “was bowled by VAAS”, Sehwag was very lucky, Lankans kept dropping him at regular intervals. He managed to stick around with the captain who played his usual cameo knock. I should also mention about Harbajan, he bowled a sensible line to keep the Lankan’s under control, 4-0, I am hoping for a 7-0.

Yawn!, I am very sleepy.:)
