Team India: Good Old Ways Continue

By John Cheeran
Has anything changed in Indian cricket in the last few weeks?
The Bangladesh tour has only helped to put India's weaknesses, both in bowling and batting, into relief.
Yes, large chunks of playing time was lost to soggy ground conditions, but any other team with a meaningful bowling attack would have won the Test.
So Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore is justified in taking credit for denying India victory in the Chittagong Test.
What's the worth of our bowlers when they can't wrap up Bangladesh innings and force them to follow on, especially after taking first seven wickets for less than 125 runs?
Would S Sreesanth's presence have tilted the scale in India's favour?
And what about the great Bengali Hope Ranadeb Bose?
Wicked, indeed, are cricket's ways.
