Hey friends, my question lies to all those fans of cricket, who die to get some action. Well, 3 days have already passed out in the second test match between india and Australia. And it has already shown a lot of action in the past 3 days. First, Sachin breaking Lara's record of most number of runs in test cricket, passing 12000 runs as well and then 2nd day, Gangauly making his mark with a century, Dhoni hitting 92 and Amit Mishra taking 2 wickets on his debu match, and the third day, India restricting Australia to 268 with Amit Misra taking a 5 wisket haul, so it quite seems possible for India to win this test match at Mohali, and lead the series by 1-0. What a remarkable moment would it be for Sachin and Ganguly their achievements be marked with a test win in this match. What do you say, guys? Can India win this test match? With already a goos start by Sehwag and Gambhir in the 2nd innings, do you think, India holds a bright chance to win this match? What strategy would you think, would be the best for India to beat australia?

India are the favourites to win the match, considering Sewag is still on the crease. I think . We should continue till Lunch, declare around that time. But we have to continously think to win and play positively , that is why Sehwag is important in the scheme of the things. With the wicket tending to go more slow ; we should take advantage of the conditions.

Well, i got a little late in replying. Sehwag just got out. But what a gr8 movie by the Indian Captain to come up the order and increase the scoring rate. I think, India will be definitely looking forward to make the declaraion as soon as possible, so they can exploit the conditions and put enough score on the board. They will have to put more pressure on the Aussies.

in the second test match india is having a very good chance of winning it. it is already leading by 300 runs wuth two more days to spare. it can stretch the lead to 500+ by tea and then can aussies to bat. they will have to bat on the fourth and fifth day and with two quality spinners in our team we can easily knock them over. lets hope to make this series memorable for both sachin and saurav by winning it.

Yeah, The match has already shown some gr8 performances by Sachin and Ganguly and the debu spinner Amit Misra, andnow Sehwag and Gambhir are making the match memorable for themselves as well. Giving a target of 500 would be rocking, but i think it is equaly important to take some wickets in the evening session, before the stumps for the 4th day!!

Tomorrow is a crucial day for India.They should bat till lunch and gather as much run possible and declare after lunch so that they will get enough time to collect wickets of Australia.If they bowl well as today they will win the second test against the Aussies.There is 100% chance of victory for India.thanx.

Well, i guess, they have heard what you have written it over here. Sehwag and Gambhir have already given a gr8 start this morning, and Indai are already 400 runs ahead, so i think, a target of around 450 would be best before they think of declaration and putting Australia to bat in the 4th innings and rest, the spinners can do!!
