WACA Conquered

What a wonderful moment for any Indian cricket team fan.Australians being outplayed in under four days.How many of us would have given a chance for the current Indian team to even stand upto the Aussies that too at WACA,Perth? Honestly speaking I had only a little faith after watching the T20 videos of the Perth match between Australia and New Zealand.But the final verdict certainly went to the team that deserved it after four stunning days of cricket.

The Indians did everything right from the first day.They won the toss and Anil Kumble chose to bat showing his courage and confidence on his Batsmen.From then on we have had something that we can term as a complete Test Match.We’ve had a proper and fair battle after the fiasco in the previous match.

The Indians played the Australian way of cricket at their own stronghold given them no chance to get back.But there were instances wherein the Australians looked like coming back.but the Indians managed to nullify the threat.

The credit should go to the rookie Indian pacers who have certainly proved their worth.Irfan Pathan can’t ask for a better way to come back into the scheme of things fairing exceedingly well with both bat and the ball.He provided us with the initial breakthroughs that was very crucial.Ishanth Sharma has come a long way within a very short span of just four International Matches!!!I never expected him to perform the way he did.I thought that he would get carried away with the bounce at WACA.

Infact Ishanth Sharma had a very good time bowling to Ricky Ponting!!!He trapped him twice during this match.One of my friends had actually expected Ricky Ponting to go on and get a century in the absence of Harbhajan Singh.Just read this article that I found about the BATTLE BETWEEN ISHANTH SHARMA AND RICKY PONTING.

Nothing can be spoken about R.P.Singh as he has time and again proved that he belongs to the group of big boys.He was very effective from around the wicket.He has a pretty strong shoulder and bowls with quite a pace and also swings the ball effectively.

As for Kumble,he has already agreed that this has been the best ever match that he has ever been a part of.He got his 600th scalp and also won his first test match as captain in Australia.After all the drama that we had last week,Kumble has done well to fine-tune the boys.

Including Sehwag seemed to be a master-stroke as he did well to give India a brisk start in both the innings and also chipped in with the ball in the second innings.He also asked Kumble to persist with Ishanth Sharma when he was bowling beautifully.

Not to forget Sachin,Dravid and Laxman.All the three chipped in with useful knocks that changed the course of the game.It was disappointing to see Ganguly fail.But that happens.It was also heartening to see the Indian tail wagging too.

But credit hould also be given to Mitchell Johnson for the way in which he batted during the fourth innings.Had one more top order Batsman stayed for a while anything could have happened.But considering the fact that the Aussies had nearly 240 overs to settle the target of 413,I expected them to win.But the Indians have finally stopped the Aussie winning streak for the second time becoming the first Asian Team to conquer WACA,Perth.

Quite a feat and this sets up the Adelaide clash as well.Lets hope that this performance gets carried to Adelaide as well.
