Are we ready with new Shewag-Gambhir combination?
I have doubt it is still early days to compare our brand new opening pair of Dhawan-Vijay with Shewag-Gambhir. It may sound injustice to many. But this pair looks very assured and has more reasons to compare with their long term predecessors.
Today, it could be the pitch or an average bowling for Aussies or anything…but Dhawan deserves huge credit for such a fantabulous innings. This innings have just made us to think result is still possible in this match against India’s favour else it would have been a dull draw. Shewag did this before many times. Now a new hope, we have got a new guy who can play a game changing innings.
At the same moment I feel sorry for Aussies who are preparing for two back-to-back Ashes series during second half of this year. Aussies need to address so many gaps with not much cricket left before Ashes. Being a strong Aussie supporter when it comes to Ashes, I wish something special happens to Australia something similar to resurgence of Watson two years back. I would be glad if it is their long term spinner.
