While an Indian win in this test is still not a foregone conclusion, it is pretty close to one. Whatever the result, Amit Mishra has certainly arrived! It was masterstroke on the part of Dhoni and the selectors to resist the temptation of playing Munaf Patel or RP Singh on a perceived paceman’s pitch at Mohali and instead introduce a genuine replacement for Kumble. Mishra has bowled beautifully and, as Mahesh has stated, the ball to get Michael Clarke captured it all. The question that remains is what will Kumble do if he is fit enough to play on his “home”ground in Delhi. Ferozshah Kotla has been a favorite hunting ground for Kumble where he took all 10 wickets in an innings against Pakistan, has captured nearly 10% of his 616 wickets at an average of 15.41. Will VVS Laxman get unceremoniously dumped to accomodate the captain? Will Mishra make way despite a great start to his career to let the senior statesman continue his extended career? Will they play an unusual combination of two leg spinners and leave Harbhajan out? Will one the senior batsmen get “injured”? Will Kumble continue to remain unfit? Will Amit Mishra “injure” himself? All this remains to be seen… Interesting days ahead. In the interim, an interesting test match lies ahead.
