India missed Zaheer, but Praveen Kumar did not disappoint. It was good to see him use the opportunity with skill and a lion hearted effort. The day was dominated by KP, genius at work. His second hundred was a true exhibition to watch. Bhajji, Ishant looked quite ineffective, but the absence of consistent pressure could be the reason. Bowlers work best as a unit.
I fear England do not realize that KP's innings must have inspired the Indian stalwarts. A small trailer in the dying moments of the day by Gauti.
Tomorrow will be another run feast, I promise. Lords is brilliant for batting on day three. Gauti was incensed by Jimmy Anderson with a return throw to his head. Not bad for India, I'd say.
Next two days will be seriously absorbing if you are a fan of Gauti, Sachin, Rahul, Laxman, Dhoni, Raina and company.
England have an amazing view of their bowling unit. They are good, but barring one afternoon against Sri Lanka in Cardiff, could not pick 20 wickets in the recent series against them. So what is the fuss about?
I think Sachin will not disappoint - not after being made to toil for two days by KP. Looking forward to a most memorable third day at Lords tomorrow.
A must watch!
