India vs SA
Sometime this afternoon, when we had just lost Dhoni, I very wisely said that it had all happened before. That India had been in this situation a few times before this in the past two seasons. That they would scrape through to reduce the deficit to less than 200. If asked to follow on Sehwag would come out a quick fire fifty while Gambhir would set up base and not get out till noon on Day 5. Sachin, Vijay, Badri and Dhoni would help themselves to a ton or at least a 50 each. Badri and Dhoni seeing us out at the end of the 5th day.
It had happened in Napier, it happened at Ahmedabad, it happened at Chittagong and surely it could happen again in Nagpur.
Nagpur, the venue of one of our most shameful defeats of the past decade. Nagpur, where Dale Steyn peed all over my hopes and gunned the friggin Indian batting down. (It’s even more painful to follow it now thanks to the Hawkeye that Cricinfo has introduced)
7/51 and 1/14 with 8 to go. You go Dale Steyn!
