    Kartik is Australia Bound

    Kartik is Australia Bound

    My Article for Cricketweb

    In what is sure to make the Indian tour of Australia even more interesting, standout left arm spinner Murali Kartik has been flown to Australia to join the Indian touring party.

    Kartik who has been the outstanding spinner amongst Indian Domestic Circles for a few years now will get an opportunity to be selected against the mighty Australian side in Adelaide.

    The move comes as a welcome one for Indian fans and cricket fans in general, as Kartik had been more useful and more penetrating than Harbhajan in the recent TVS Cup.

    Australia have had their fair share of problems against left arm spinners in recent times. Daniel Vettori troubled the Australian's in their own back yard during the 2001 season, and more recently Zimbabwean left arm spinner Raymond Price had the Australian batsman in a spin as well.

    It will be interesting to see if firstly, Murali Kartik gets selected ahead of Kumble and Harbhajan and then if he has the same success that Daniel Vettori and Raymond Price had against the mighty Australian side.

    The second test starts on Friday the 12th of December from 11:00 am EDST (Sydney, Melbourne).

    What timing!

    I had posted a similar article like that just after you posted your article.

    Clearly you and I were doing the same thing.

    BTW Sangrath what is your MSN?

    Krarthik is coming? may be good for him, but not necessarily for India. He has been there in and out of the team for a while. But for me, he is an averge player only( with average temperment & talent)...not atall a match winner . He lacks the charismatic enthusiasm of Maninder singh,Harbhajan accuracy of Shastri and Kumble,less clever than Sachin.He may be able to take 3-4 wicket only if the wicket is spin-assisting. He's more or less similar to Venkat'Raju(former Indian spinner).
    He is not going to make any impact on the Aussie top order( forget TVS cup; that was a fluke).

    Why, are they shipping all the team out after one bad day?!:wow:

    Well, I understand that owing to the lack of penetration in the Aussie attack, they are planning on recalling Lillee and Thomson (although David Hookes reckons that he's due a game)

    And the Indian team has bought extra helmets and padding just in case. They would still be the fastest bowlers on either side if they played.

    Seriously this is a very positive move --- ask any one associated with Indian cricket and they will tell you Murali Karthik has been the best spin bowler in Indian cricket for some time now.

    Its crazy how they only pick him now --- still, better late than never.

    It will be very interesting to see if he plays at Adelaide though.

    The sooner India fast track Ramesh Powar into the national team,
    the better it will be for the national team as well.

    Whatever happened to Vinood Kambli? Why doesn't he get picked for India anymore? I just had a look at his record and its amazing. Avg of 54 in tests and almost 61 in FC cricket. He is only 30. You would think a player like this would warrent another go.

    finally the selectors have some sense. another thing i want is ratra to be picked and parthiv dropped.

    kartik will just destroy aus in 10 balls with his left-arm spin.
