India’s future – Hopes stay alive

On an otherwise disappointing couple of test cricket days for India, its future has silently delivered a massive victory in the first game at the tri-nations in Sri Lanka. The Indian colts trashed the Sri Lankan team by 159 runs with the UP ranji player and captain of the side, TM Srivastava scoring big. Iqbal Abdullah, the left arm spinner from Mumbai, who has been spoken highly off by Tendulkar himself, captured three wickets for 14 in his seven over spell. Ironically, as I happened to just get off the telephone with my cousin arguing vehemently in favor of at least two of the seniors in the Indian side to stay on for a little longer, one part of me wants to see some of this future talent a little sooner in the current side. On a related note, Abhinav Mukund, briefly mentioned in a previous post of mine, had a modest start to his career as an Indian prospect scoring 13 of 13 balls. Our best wishes to him.
