India have allowed Sri Lanka an opening

Three key men did not play for India. Sachin Tendulkar, Irfan Pathan and Harbhajan Singh have been half of your team in this series. It took the flexibility theory to dangerous terrain. To aim for eleven faceless men in the team is alright, but it was akin to pushing an automobile onto the road without gas. Besides, to us, it appeared you were cocky.

On paper, India can defend these changes. Gautam Ghambir had a terrific century, Rudra Pratap Singh kicked up bounce on a docile surface with his high-arm action and Sreesanth is naturally accurate. It led to a mad scramble of the final overs. The batsmen were rushed and you lost out on 20-25 extra runs.

As for Sri Lanka, they have now seen an opening. The batsmen, but for Sanath Jayasuriya, free music videos have found their feet. It nba Kobe could have a critical bearing when they return for Tests. They surely want to go with a 4-3 score line. It's possible, since India, I believe, would not abandon its experiments. If they do, they would look confused and weak. Besides, what do you tell these young men for resting them in the next match? Gambhir, for instance, just cannot be put on the bench. When ushered into the party, he made sure he did not go unnoticed. He's explosive, but that's besides the point. He knew the selectors could drop him to include Mohammad Kaif for the final two games. He saw the booty and made a fistful of it. He would now get the final two games; maybe, it's Virender Sehwag who can handle his one-day blues from the sidelines.

Ironically, India was still better than Sri Lanka in one respect and it was because of these youngsters. I have never seen a better Indian fielding side than the one we witnessed in Ahmedabad. Just count the number of times your boys hit the stumps. Suresh Raina was just not swooping on the ball for effect; he was also gathering it clean and throwing precise. I know the difference for I have seen some really, really average Indian fielding sides. For sometime you had Mohammad Azharuddin and Ajay Jadeja; then Robin Singh. Last few years,Yuvraj Singh and Kaif have spanned the entire spectrum of your fielding prowess. Now you have this Generation Next.

I have also never seen a more disciplined Indian bowling attack than the one seen in this series. If Ajit Agarkar, with a reputation of being profligate, can be precise you need to doff your hat. Both Sreesanth and RP Singh gave nothing away. They did not experiment and bowled on one side of the wicket. They tried to exert pressure from both ends and that's what bowling combinations should always strive for in this wonderful game. Cricket can be simple in its nuances but like all things simple, it doesn't come easy.

It's also time we start speaking for Rahul Dravid, for the genial Indian skipper is modest to a fault. He gets less attention than say a Kevin Pietersen or a Brian Lara only because in the eye of the media, he is less flamboyant. But his has been a shining presence in the game and we need to acknowledge it every time he scores a hundred like this one. Such men are remarkable, who after a decade of cricket, do not lose even an ounce of passion. He has a maniac devotion to his craft but nearly always approaches it with humility. He has to be an inspiration in the dressing room nba Kobe as he must be to thousands who flock Indian maidans.

Sri Lanka now need Jayasuriya, Chaminda Vaas and Muthiah Muralitharan to leave an impact on the Indians. It would come handy in the Tests next month. They are world class competitors and their countless fans back home are hoping their prayers are answered. It would also restore the imbalance between the two sides. India has let the cat out of the bag and I suspect it hasn't been a very bright move.

It sure is going to provide a stirring finish to the series.
