Break-up

The pacing, thus far, is pitch perfect. Pathan has 20 dot balls and 20 singles in an innings of 71 off 52; Sachin 39 dot balls and 26 singles plus 3 twos now in his 75 off 79; nice to see him throttle down and let Pathan have his head. SRT has been talking to IP after pretty much every other ball, nursing the lad along, and it's interesting to see the way IP's confidence is growing -- his body language out there just now is that of an accomplished batsman, not a tailender sent out to slog.

  • Tendulkar has not shown any sign of just coming back from an injury. Actually he is more agressive than his last few outings before layoff. Good sign.

    Another good sign is there is more batting option for India. I see Venugopal as the weakest link though that is a position for Kaif.
