Ganguly could not have timed his first century against the Aussies better. What a day of cricket it has been! The man who famously "got under the skin of the Aussies" during their tour to India, repeated it with a show of his own. This time, in their own backyard!

Undoubtedly, it was he who changed the way Indians played Cricket. Now he is all set to stamp his mark Down Under. With this kind of a start to the series Team India should march ahead confidently. Nah...they WILL!

Cheers to the Prince of Calcutta!

>> "Rarely does one see skipper Steve Waugh clueless and facing a fusillade from the opposition; rarely does a visiting side score 351 runs in a day's work against Australia, especially not India, who failed to touch 300 even once on their last tour here; rarely does India lose Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar cheaply in the same over and yet pile up a 350 plus total on foreign land; rarely does a visiting team overhaul Australia at home in the first innings.">>

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
