The Indian team has been playing some awe-inspiring cricket
off late. The team has shown promise in all departments unlike any other team
of the recent past. The fact that the current one day team does not comprise
of any senior players indicates the changing face of Indian cricket. The seniors
however, will be raring to go in order to prove their worth yet again. The team
is currently playing a tour match against the Board XI. The bowling of the team
has been good in the match so far with key bowlers like Anil Kumble,
Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, and Ishant Sharma finding form.
The spin duo of the country seem to know the proper utilization technique of
the generally spinner friendly wickets. Ishant Sharma is still bowling like
a dream and is improving by the second. The fielding department of the Indian
Cricket team also looks solid. But the signing in of the new coach, Gary Kirsten,
has probably helped the batting line up to the greatest extent. The batting
of the team has improved tremendously over the past couple of months and with
the coming in of veterans like Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, the
team looks better than ever.
The Sri Lankan cricket team on the other hand is riding high
on the success of the recent Asia Cup victory over their neighbors. The
new players in the team have adjusted brilliantly with their seniors and the
team looks a more complete outfit off late. Sanath Jayasurya and Chaminda
Vaas are at the peak of their careers and it's simply stunning to watch them
at work. With the advent of newer players including Lasith Malinga and
T.Dilshan, the entire Sri Lankan cricket team looks amazingly strong yet flexible.
The presence of the spin god Muttiah Muralitharan further helps in boosting
the chances of victory of the team. If the performance of the Indian batsmen
in the warm up game is an indicator, then the Sri Lankan bowlers will virtually
walk through the Indian defenses. The series on the whole looks like a promising
one and is bound to act as a high dose of adrenaline to one and all.
