Nagpur, The 3rd test New zealand Vs India.
two days back, the city of nagpur started to greet the teams with heavy showers and helped all the players of both the teams get a break from the practice sessions and even expected that it would extend the rest for the players . But, the weather god was in good mood to watch cricket today as the showers stopped. but bended the backs of ground staff who were very busy drying the outfield. lots and lots of saw dust was used to keep it dry. the saw mills around nagpur would have run out of it,that much was what was needed to dry the outfield and their was a good amount of delay which also gave the players some more time to make up for the empty days and also gave vettori a headache as Brendon McCullum injured his hip and their was confusion in the NZ camp but later they decided that McCullum would play and vettori prayed to god he should win the toss ,and help McCullum get more time to frisk away the injury and his prayer were answered.NZ won the toss and opted to Bat.Eventhough god answered the call of Vettori ,the Indian bowlers were not in good mood for Vettori’s plans to go good.Remember, Zaheer is missing from the squad. The bowling dept. was headed by “two comeback guyz ” Rock star sreesanth & tormetor of Australia last series Ishanth Sharma. The opening pair of NZ could not fair well against the swing bowling of the new ball bowlers. Particularly, Sreesanth with his upright seem troubled the likes of the NZ.The Top order had no answers for the fast bowlers they were skittled out for very meager runs the last piece of resistance came in the form of Ryder who is in a come-back mode and the thing Vettori never wanted to happen, happened! McCullum was needed too early for Nz’s liking . Then RYder and McCullum provided little resistance but Raina’s beauty of a catch sent back ryder and McCullum is still their ,but for how long?. The Indian’s made up for the time took by the rain and the Indian juggernaut is rolling in smooth water’s as of now.It is not necessary that India would definitely hold because”That’s the beauty of the game” one session is enough for anybody to come on top
Hopes are ” India will win the final match and the series”
