Hey you got a good slogan- rising from the ashes. Ya surely India is rising from the ashes but India is still to suffer a couple a of setbacks with the retirement of people like Tendulkar, Saurav, Dravid, Kumble and Laxman coming near. The youngsters will have to take the lead now. People like Yuvraj, Dhoni who are now a regular member of the team will have to step up. Also the coming series will be surely a big decider of the future of Indian Cricket

Yes. We have to agree that they did a good job against the proteas. Having said that, this tour of England will be a big challenge for the Indians. If they manage to win the series, then surely they are getting better. Because they will not get a chance like this again. No Flintoff and Harmisson, so no real threat in bowling. Indians will have to counter only the likes of Hoggard and Panesar. Frankly i dont think Panesar will pose any big challenge to Indians. So that reduces the equation to only one experienced bowler Hoggard. If they manage to tackle him, i think the batting will be in very good position. Lets wait and see whether it happens in the test series.
