India is struggling in the 1st test. india is now trailing by 63 runs now. Only india have 5 wickets left,Laxman and Dhoni is on the crease.its indias last recognized batting pair. I think India will force Lankans to bat again,but I dont think India will win the match. But Lankans will be keen to make India allout within this 63 runs. What do you think........

Hi swami, With yet 63 run to chase and only a day spared I do not think India is anywhere near winning the game. They should rather concentrate on saving the game. What a shame! The number one team is now struggling hard against no so strong team like Srilanka. Both the bats men and bowlers have let India down. I would rather blame the weak and fragile looking bowling attack. Do you think India would some thing different in the following match?

Well krajibg how can you say Sri Lanka is not strong side. They are the strong side in bowling department and their batting will fair well because Indian team bowling is equal to some club cricket bowling. So, I feel it is shame that we are having Sachin, Dravid and Laxman and so on but in bowling who??? if batting fails this is what happens, India lose...

India are definitely under the cosh in this match. I think the way they batted in the first innings they deserve to be in this situation. The batsmen simply did not apply themselves with Sehwag, Laxman and Bhajji all getting out to horrible shots. Again in the second innings they lost the wickets just when the batsmen seemed to be taking control. But all is still not lost, we need a special from VVS and Dhoni tomorrow morning to take India to safety!! Let's see if captain courageous can repeat his heroics in saving a match in England here. Cheers! Ram

Well the way Indian batting is playing, tomorrow if they can stick without losing wickets then it is great achievment and I do not think that is possible. Only rain can save and as you all know Dhoni is having a lot of Mindass touch, will see how luck he is.. If Dhoni and Laxman score hundreds then I would say it is briliant knock but I still will blame the Indian bowlers for their poor performance. Not always those miracles will happen and eager looking who will be the 800th wicket for Muralidaran. Both Laxman and Dhoni have no choice but to attack the spinners if they can use their feet but of late Indian players are struggling against spinners and playing Murali is hard of Indian team. I feel today Sachin and Dravids dismissals were key. Sachin got out for a beautiful ball and nothing can be done.. Yuvaraj played poorly and I think his confidence is very low. whatever Sri Lankan win is for sure and second possibility is that rain can play spoil sport and third option which is not likely to happen is draw..India winning is no chance.
