The great Wall of India

"The wall is back". I am pretty sure most of my readers would know who I mean by wall. It is none other than Rahul Dravid. After going through a bad patch in his cricketing carrier, he seemed to have found his touch back as he scored a half century in the test match against England.

Although he had a nervous start and couple of close calls of getting out, he managed to get the momentum going as he played some brilliant shots. His innings was somewhat slow as he recorded strike rate of less than 40 per 100 balls but nevertheless it stabilized the Indian innings after the loss of Virender Sehwag early. I believe India would be stepping up a gear looking to increase the scoring rate after the steady start today. England on the other hand would be looking to take early wickets and put India under pressure.
