Well yes, this is something that worries me a lot my friend. Test cricket is all about being consistent. If you are at rank one, and you want to prove your worth, then you have to be there for a long time to show that you can dominate. And the way you play should also be the same. Like how Australia use to dominate the world of cricket specially when it comes to test cricket. I cannot see such game from the India team. We win matches only because of the fact that we have a very good batting line up. Most of the matches that we win are because of our strong batting. And if you remove that, then you will find that our bowling department is very weak. There are not many wicket taking bowlers in our team who looks venomous in test cricket except for Zaheer Khan. If India needs to do better then they need to improve on their bowling line up. This can only ensure them a good and strong test side which can remain on top.
