Back to Cricket Grounds

Hello Cricket lovers, 
This time our Cricket players under Leadership of Lucky and cool cool Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni landed at Nottingham cricket ground to play 2nd Cricket Test match against England from 29 July to 02 August. This time also India won the toss and elected to bawl and field first. In first Inning England was limited to 221 (3.21 per over). Except SCJ  Broad who scored 64 all other english players were below 31. Parveen Kumar, sreesant and Ish Kumar snatched 3 wickets each and Harbhajan 1 (total test wickets of Harbhajan Singh 406). India scored 288, Rahul Dravid 117, Laksham 54, Yuvraj Singh 62, Tandulkar 16 and Raina 12, Dhoni (Captain) hardly made 5 runs. The second day result was in India's favour. The team was over excited and they enjoyed the night. On third day the english players fight back with a aim  "to do or die", at the end of 3rd day England was 441/6 (I R Bell 159, PIETERSON 63,  Morgan 70,   M J Prior 73 and Bresnan scored 90 runs. ). On 4th day England ended on  544 (4.52) and gave a target to  India to score  478 runs to win the match. But India failed and could scored only 158 runs hence lost second match by 319 runs. Tandulkar scored 56 runs and Harbhajan 46, Praveen Kumar 25 and others hardly could play even an over before returning to pavilion.  The cool cool and smiling face of Dhoni couldn't favor in both the matches.  Either the standard of Indian Cricket is descending or our cricketeers are going careless. Rahul, Sachin  and Lakshan are old bats and are due to retire, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and ZaheerKhan are injured than who will help Indian team to win the match ??
