As india lost the first test against australia all eyes on india whether it will make on second test or not????? the series favorite lost the first test because of their poor batting line up. captain cool dhoni also pointed out the same thing especially the inidan middle order failed to face australian attack some critics calim that captain dhoni lost his confidence and cool head... Let's see the match with finger's cross.....

Difficult, very difficult. I don't think batting was the major concern. They lost the first test because of a very defensive captain.Oz were 216-6 and dhoni had a defensive field and waited for new ball, while he could have gone for the kill. In the second inning also, Oz were 27-4 & 170-8. Still defensive dhoni allowed them to reach to 240. We lost the match there only!

Well Karthik, luck always will not be with Dhoni. His young turks must start performing instead of depending on greats like Sachin, Dravid and Laxman. Who will replace Dravid if he retires and who will replace Laxman if he retires. So, selectors should ask players like Virat Kohli or Rohit sharma to play at place where they are comfortable and prove their potential. They have done good job in ODIs but in tests they are very poor. I cannot say that Rohit is poor because he is not yet debuted in test cricket. Virat and Raina were disappointing. In Sydney test too Virat failed. Gambhir too lost his touch and his is danger signs. The problem is India is not getting time to prepare well against big teams and Australia on other hand prepared well for this series. Their coaching staff too is looking very good. Craig McDermott as bowling coach is very good choice and Steve Rixon as fielding coach is making Australia again a strong side. To me Ducan Fletcher is having still trouble in training India team. I hope Indian team improves their skills under Ducan Fletcher and show a better performances in coming days..

INDIAN are the heros only on thier home ground. They can't perform well outside of INDIA and the England tour as well as the first match with Austraila had make the proff of that. INDIA had lost matches almost all except against the weakest west indies. They lost 5-0 to England because of batting collapse. Same was there in First test match against Australasia. What can gues with these? No magic perhaps. I thinkiung if they win then only think that they had won the macth else never think in favour of them. If the easiest winable macth they can lsot then i can't belive them to win a tuff one. It is useless to hope from these heros who are less than zero( which is have a value). IF they have not won the match in first test then nobody can thinking they can win in rest and i too. Let hope if they win cnaces of which is less than 1%.
