India tour of England - Can India make a comeback in Second test

India got to a good start on the first day of the second test match however Indian bowlers took quiet longer time to get rid of tail of England batting. Thus a quick half century from Broad who was the top scorer for England sailed England to a respectable and sufficient total of 221 runs.

Had Indian bowlers handled the tail tactfully the score of the English team would have been much lower as at one point of time the scoreboard read Englang 85/6.

India got the terrible start with the only specialist test opener A. Mukund got out in the first ball of the innings. However both Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman rescued India for the remaining overs of the day and India end up with a score of 24/1 on day first. Trouble for India is that there batting line has been meshed up with both regular openers Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir not availalbe for the second test due to injuries. In the absence of the regular openers Indian batting line now is total mesh with Rahul Dravid opening the innings and if you see the stats he is the highest run getter at number 3. Same goes for VVS Laxman the number 6 specialist batsmen in made to bat at number 3 still we can expect good batting from Laxman, he is a class player.

India has also included Yuvraj Singh, the world cup hero in this test and we have to see if he can replicate the world cup magic in the test matches in England as well.

All will depend upon the batting of team India lets catch all the live action tomorrow.
