At last Indian Century atOval

At last Indian Century atOval
English Summer
Yesterday evening when in this column I wrote that third and final test match between India and England will go in the history with three Indian names who missed the century. Everybody was agreed to that but there was a person who was with a different idea, the person was Jambo Mr.Perfect Ten from India and now the oval test will go in the history with maiden century by India top wicket tacker, world famous bowler, Anil Kumbale. Mr. Perfect ten has inssured that India is not going to loose this test and if not by 2-0 surely going to win the series by 1-0. Infact it a long since the Indians have played as team and proved their batting strength which always looked most dangrous on the papers for the oponents. Importance of Anil's knock of ton underlined by the fact it is almost certain that India in all probabilities is not going to bat again in this test. The everest of 664 runs is requiring a much controlled efforts from english player. First they need to be determined for avoiding the followon at present second day is ended with 24 for 1 it means they are still 640 run behind on first inning. The day three and four are going to provide acid test for the England team. Pitch is not supportive much for the speed stars but surely the natural tear and wear will going to help Mr.Perfect Ten and making the life of english batsman hard and harder. Kumble with the cussion of his own century and huge first inning total will go with killer mood. Here is some thing more about Mr. Perfect Ten from India.
