One-Day Mataram

Deconstructing the gentleman's game

India Wins!!

India has done it!!

After a 22 year wait, India scores a win over Australia on Australian soil. Victory doesn't come sweeter than this!!

And what a way to win! Dravid and Agarkar, the two men who played the biggest part in this historic test win were at the crease when the winning runs were scored. How apt!

Moreover, one cannot forget the contribution by VVS Laxman. His century in the first innings was important, no doubt, but more important was his contribution in the second innings where he scored 32 quick runs which ensured that the game was taken away from the Aussies who had put their foot in the door by dismissing Tendulkar. Hats off to Laxman!!

And oh, btw, I couldn't help but think that Agarkar's 6 victims yesterday were a revenge for the 6 ducks he had to suffer the last time he played Test matches in Australia! An eye for an eye... a wicket for a duck! ;-)

Well done Team India!!
