Some positive batting from India
I must say we were a tad too unlucky in the morning to not have picked up the wickets. Srilanka could have well settled for below 370ish. The bowlers have made amends (esp Ishant and Ojha) and they certainly look capable of getting 20 wickets now :)
Given the mammoth 425 on board we needed a special from Sehwag. And special it was. Rahul was superb in his short spell. Sachin of course is in top form.
The intent is clear, we are not settling for a draw here. It all depends on how long Sehwag is going to stay at crease. I wont be surprised if Sachin takes on the bowling if Sehwag departs. If we manage a lead of 100 (or more) with wickets in hand by end of tomorrow, we have a good chance of drawing level in the series.
Sachin-Sehwag in the morning session tomorrow. What a treat at day break!
