Indian Cricket Team is going into this match after almost loosing the first one, but thanks to M.S Dhoni and Rain that saves India from loosing the first test match. As we saw in First test match that Indian batsman fails to deliver when it matters, so if Indian cricket team wants to perform well in ongoing series then their batsman must take the responsibility especially senior pro.
Indian team has announced their playing twelve for the Nottingham Test with Yuvraj Singh as twelfth man and its likely that Yuvraj may have to warm the bench once more. So Indians are going with same Playing XI which they were played at Lord’s.
Sourav Ganguly's stiff back was the only selection headache for the the Indian selectors ahead of the second Test match and it seems the former skipper has recovered well.
It has been raining at Nottingham from last two to three days and is likely that the second test match against India and England will be again rain interrupted match. If this happens then we may find this match ending in a draw.
With the weather reports predicting more rains over the next few days, things certainly seem gloomy - not just for the two teams but also for the cricket fans.
Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman had all flopped in the first Test at the Lord's, where India managed to save the match after rains ruled out the final session.
It’s very important for Indian Cricket team that their master blaster Batsman Sachin Tendulkar deliver in this match otherwise Indian team may find themselves in same situation where they left at Lord’s.
