The Indian cricket team plays the 2nd test match against the Aussies in a couple of hours in Adelaide. The Adelaide pitch looks like a batting beauty the first 3 days with spinners taking charge after that. Glad to see Murali Karthik drafted back into the squad and if the pitch did deteriorate over the final 2 days, then he could be a possible match winner.
The team that wins the toss and goes on to make in excess of 500, might not have to bat again. So watch that spin of the coin carefully today. It could well determine the outcome of a series that is no longer as cut-and-dried as everyone thought it would be.
Likely team for India 1 Akash Chopra, 2 Virender Sehwag, 3 Rahul Dravid, 4 Sachin Tendulkar, 5 Sourav Ganguly (capt), 6 VVS Laxman, 7 Ajit Agarkar, 8 Parthiv Patel (wk), 9 Murali Karthik, 10 Zaheer Khan, 11 Ashish Nehra
