Well done! Down under is never easy!

Hearty congratulations to Team India for the dominating victory over the visiting Lankans in the ongoing series. One or the other member of the team coming up to the situation and making things with work for the team, which is predominantly important right before the major tournament of the world's cricket. This home series has established good headaches for the team management. It's now up to the management to choose the playing eleven, I guess, and enough of experimentation now! Making the good players feel important at the same time secure is a though task although, many a team managements have proved already that it's not an unmanageable task. Yes, given the untestable Indian mindsets of the Indian players, Ravi Shashtri and team might have to script carefully. Hope they will succeed. 

Tournament down under has never been easy for the Indian cricket team. The present team is no exception although there are many heroics have been displayed in the recent times. 

Raina is playing awesome but the change of the soil might impact his game and if that happens, India will be on serious problems to deal with about the middle order, which will have to play an important role in the Australian conditions. Opening batsmen are impressive so far, but again, how these men are going to face the new ball and frightening bowling units teams like South Africa, Australia, Pakistan have! Spinners might be very handy given the circumstances, a lot is still left to toss. Which is not a bright sign of being the reigning world champions. Experience level of the team in the Australian or newzeland's conditions is yet not qualified to be the factor to cherrish. The less we speak about the slag over bowling the better we all can hope for the best to happen at the world cup.

Having said all that, I'm not yet in a mood to believe that team India will come out with flying colours. But I definitely want the team to put it's best effort to fight out the difficult conditions in every match. They must endure! All the very best.

My support this time as well is extended to the South African team, who is yet to win the big cup. With Garry around, I sincerely hope their destiny changes, chowking ends, smiles last until the last moments of the world cup!

I would not be deluded by the good performance in home grounds against a depleted SL team without Malinga and Herath Rangana.Down under it will be challenging for many of our 'heroes'.They should prove their mettle there to win our praise.
