Indian bowlers looked helpless when Pakistan scored 650+ runs at 4.5 run per over. Especially when Afridi and Akmal were toying with the bowling during their partnership of 170 runs off 21 overs! And they said it demoralized the Indian players. Well, did it?
I didnt see any trace of it as India piled up 400+ runs at 5.5 runs per over without losing a *single* wicket! Sehwag is closing in on his record score and I hope my prediction when the Indian innings started (of him scoring 270) is proved wrong and he goes on to bat the whole of the last day. That is sufficient for him to break all the existing batting records. And the intermittent rains are giving him sufficient rest. It is all working in our favor. So Veeru, go for it.
IMO, this make shift opening partnership has already defined the series. Oh, just so we won’t forget, the highest ever opening score is just 10 runs away. I am seeing 680/0 declared on the wall.
PS: Guess who is taking the most bathroom breaks in Lahore? Ganguly. He is probably crying his heart out for refusing to open the innings.
