The Heat Is On

At Banglore that is. They are fighting every tooth and nail.

Some how, I get reminded of another Test Match at the same venue 18 years back, Sunny Gavaskar's last. India chased some 210 odd on a dust bowl that was spinning square on fifth day. Gavaskar made 96. Local hero, Roger Binny made a late charge with a couple of lusty hittings in the end. But Pak spinner Tauseef Ahmed spun Pakistan to a close victory with India losing by 10 odd runs.

It was very disappointing for a very young myself. Like every kid, I hated to lose, and more so by Pakistan. And I would hate it today as well. Unfortunately, likes of Laxman are disappointed only when they miss a century.
