Congratulate the Indian team

December 18, 2006

Proving yet again the glorious uncertainties of cricket, India pulled off a spectacular 123-run victory over South Africa in the first Test, to register its maiden win in that country.

A week ago no one would have believed India was capable of producing such an outcome, not after they were routed in the one-dayers 4-0.

In terms of turnaround, this is as good as it gets.

What makes the victory special is that team effort, and not individual brilliance, was behind it.

Laxman and Ganguly with the bat, Sreesanth and Kumble with the ball, and the entire team playing as one to first defend a not-too-ample first innings score, whittle out South Africa for their lowest ever total in reply, and then put up a tough target on the board.

It's a historic win, all right, so congratulate the men in blue who achieved it!
