a passing thought

shared by straight point on Saturday, November 17, 2007

some how i feel fit asif, more fitter akhtar, and some in form batsmen of pakistan would have challenged team india to the hilt before difficult tour of down under...

now since this will not be the case, so we wont be knowing that whether our batsmen are 'really' in form or just pouncing on cake of their pie...

it could well create false sense of team buzzing with form with every chance of complacency creeping in...which could be sure recipe of disaster...

The danger is real.

In all probability, we will get whipped in Australia.

Imagine a fit Ahktar. Not in this series, but just in his life.

thanks uncle for the visit and comments...

yes you are right a fit Akhtar and we have a different view of pace and some pretenders out there...

sure, a tough opposition is a good build up to the OZ tour. But with a tough opposition comes the real chance of losing the series. And thats not the best frame of mind a new captain needs to take for the Oz series.

Beat Pakistan, traditionl enemy, at home and take that confidence to Oz - a 2003/04 in reverse, if you like.

This has been a good enough test for the limited overs team.

That said, I'd have liked to see Asif and Akhtar along with Gul and Tanvir in the test matches...partly for the reasons you mention and mainly because the performance of Indian batsmen against Pakistan would be truly tested. If they'd come out of that with a series win against Paksitan, it has that much more credibility. Even now, I think Paksitan will pose a real challenge. Their batting is very strong and the Indian bowlers will be hard put to get them out twice.
