Indian cricketers: Are they Wanderers or fighters?

By John Cheeran
The Test has begun for India. But how long the agony will continue at the Wanderers?
So Irfan Pathan, the most succesful batsman on the tour so far, is out of the team. India's biggest hope, Sourav Ganguly is in.
It is quite surprising that Rahul Dravid chose to bat first after winning the toss. If I were the Indian captain, I would have let my bowlers make use of the damp conditions on the wicket. As you say, thank God, I'm not Indian team captain.
If India could take this Test into the third afternoon, Dravid and Greg Chappell should claim a moral victory for living up to the South African challenge.
And as I write these lines, Dilip Vengsarkar's trusted openers Wasim Jaffer and Virender Sehwag have rushed back to the dressing room leaving India at happy state of 14/2.
Are these guys fighters or Wanderers?

Do you have the guts to admit you were wrong all the time? Or are you gonna run and hide. Do not write on subjects you do not understand. Ganguly and VVS have been the best batsmen in the Indian team. [sarcasm on]Ganguly played well today due to the bengali media mafia supporting him.

Thank God that you are not the Indian captain.

sourav has scored a half-century but he was lucky that dravid and tendulkar and to an extent vvs handled the exteremly difficult damp conditions at the wicket; they also tamed the aggression of fresh south african bowlers.
in the context of match, ganguly innings has not much value. Ganguly can take pride from the fact he could make a decent score.
Keep posting cheeran
