India complete the trilogy - finally win in top 3 of world's most fast-bowler friendly tracks - after 78 years of starting playing Test cricket. Congratulation !!![clap]

The wins:
1) 02 Jul 2006 - Sabina Park, Jamaica (pitch is the hardest and fastest in the Caribbean): India won by 49 runs
2) 19 Jan 2008 - WACA, Perth (pitch is the hardest and fastest in the Down Under): India won by 72 runs
3) 29 Dec 2010 - Kingsmead, Durban (pitch is the hardest and fastest in the Dark Continent): India won by 49 runs

Incidentally all these wins have come under Dhoni captaincy with Sehwag, Dravid & Laxman in the team. [thumbsup]

what a win it was today! i just loved the wicket of Harris, it was just a beauty of a delivery from Zaheer. But it was just sad for deVilliers that wrong decison was given to him.

Ya true. I guess Ganguly failed to read the wrting on the wall. Kumble did and so his self-esteem is intact. Dravid was in the same boat. But luck was in his favor when RR bought him.
Live! Franchises snub Ganguly: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, as expected, was not taken up by any of the ten franchises at the IPL Players' Auction.

Ganguly, who started with $400,000, was ignored by all the teams who opted to use their budget for younger and current players.
the IPL auction is going on and well it has a lot of surprises!

Ojha is not that good agreed but from where did Piyush Chawla jump into the picture suddenly? He last played ODI several years back!


Rest all players are on expected lines and Ashwin has got the biggest chance in his lifetime! I guess he will only be bowling along with Bajji!
