Happiness is .......... an Indian Victory

Ok so this blog is coming a bit late. But i was busy with Christmas celebrations and didnt really have time to write.

What a tremendous victory at Joburg. Against all odds, Rahul Dravid and his team did the impossible. It as just not the victory but the manner in which it was achieved , that made it even more memorable.

If you go through India's finest performances overseas , and there have been quite a few over the last few years, the one striking similarity to all of them has been that they have been achieved against all odds. At Headingly in 2002 England were supposed to win in 4 days , at Adelaide Australia were supposed to steam roll India after being 400/5, at Joburg India didnt the Indians were written off even before a ball was bowled.

But it is the sheer beauty of this game that the makes the unpredictable happen. Sourav Ganguly , V.V.S Laxman , Zaheer Khan were all stars. But not as big as S. Sreesanth. Sreesanth made the ball talk in the first innings. And who can forget his dance after smashing Nel for a six.

Well the second test has started and lets hope more good times are in store for the Indian team.
