Well done India. Great win. Sehwag, Sreesanth - absolute champions
Haha, DingDong is my new favourite poster on CW.
Congrats to India on their 100th test win. They proved me wrong. After the first two days, I thought this was going ot be another dull draw. I am not sure about the state of the pitch as I havent seen the match but if India can notch up 640 plus in the match, the pitch cant change all that much within 1 day?
was it poor shot selection or terrific bowling?
"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers." - Jarrod Kimber
Channels reporting that India are now officially the #1 Test team in the ICC rankings.
A comprehensive win.Always backed Sree good to see im back wih a bang.
Congrats India.. Now hopefully most of these guys can learn something from the likes of Sachin and Dravid and keep their feet firmly on the ground.
I hope this is not like when we became #1 in ODIs and then sucked in two series... Sri Lanka are a good team and quite capable of coming back hard at us, esp. on a flat track. I am still hoping for a seamer coz I think that wud be our best shot.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

BTW, Gambhir to miss out on the next test as his sis' wedding is happening around the same time. Chance for Vijay I guess...

Great Game and win for India.
Sangakkara: "It was a very good wicket. A bit in it for a few overs. It got slower and slower and made it a bit difficult to bat on.."
Dhoni: "The wicket was quite good. Nothing even close to what we played on in Ahmedabad. The grass was kept on the track throughout. It started to turn a bit on the first day and kept a little low. "
It was Sreesanths bowling and the spinners display that won us the game. Free runs weren't given away (atleast until the last day) and this increased the pressure.
Now comes he tough part, winning the series at Mumbai. Good chance for Vijay. He could eventually end up partnering Gambhir giving Sehwag his position in the middle order.
