What is the India of my dreams? Abdul Kalam had once asked a little girl, what was her dream for India?
Most wickets in a day's play: These two are the only Tests in Asia that finished inside two days. Lowest totals by a team in their inaugural Test: Everybody was bowling well to be honest. Umesh and Ishant set the tone for us in both innings.
My job was to contain the runs, bowl in good areas, and not give easy boundaries. The wicket was flat, and not easy for spinners, so I just wanted to bowl in good areas.
It's a totally different wicket from the IPL. The pitch was turning like a rank-turner in the IPL, but today it was flat. I was giving it a rip, but wasn't getting turn. Ashwin and I spoke about trying to keep it simple and keep it in the right areas. As for Afghanistan, Tests are all about technique and mental strength.
If they can be technically and mentally stronger, then they will excel in Test cricket. It is easier to swing the new ball first up, so I was just sticking to my basics. The wicket was a little slow and we wanted to bowl up to the stumps to swing the ball. We knew that we have only one Test before England so this was a trial run.
It finished quickly and couldn't get many overs in, but we can carry the confidence of this Test match to England for sure. But Afghanistan have arrived. It took them a couple of sessions to hit their lengths right and fitting it has taken them a couple of sessions to figure out their defences and sadly that's what this match would be remembered for.
Rahane tried his best keeping Jadeja off the ball to try dragging it longer, but once he came in, he kept up his habit of running through. And on an typical Indian dustbowl, you really can't do much with a defence as dodgy as most batsmen showed, surely against the best in the world.
Shahidi tried his best; for a brief while Stanikzai held an end too, but a longer second innings when compared to the first was all they could offer. Move over three-day Tests, two days are the real deal. But poor Afghanistan, thrown under the bus against these Indian bullies at home, with a cumulative sum of first class matches lesser than those of most of the Indians individually on a ground that's soon turning into a fortress.This essay delves deeply into the origins of the Vietnam War, critiques U.S.

The Government of Burma Act was also included in it. Background to the Act: Indians had increasingly been demanding a greater role in. Since I started organizing India Through The Back Door Tours the most common question I get to asked is what to pack for India trip especially by all the women members of the group.
