And india won the game... but, was it fair? i smell rat again. remember the last test of australia's tour of india. india was alleged of making a spin pitch to win the match at any cost. and it lead to a lot of controversies. chances are more that these controversies will start once again. lets hope it will not be this time. last time it was australia and they are bad losers. so, there was every chance for a controversy. this time, unless and until grame smith rises the question, its gonna be fine. but is it fair to make such pitches to ensure india's win? indians should win using there skill and capability and not through such shameful practices. Seriously I am not a terrorist or an anti-indian. i love india as all of you do.
