7 ways India can turn the table at Nottingham

1. Turn the batting order upside down. Ishant Sharma should open with Praveen Kumar. Apart from the fact that they can’t do any worse, the mere sight of them walking in to open would give the Andersons and Tremletts a nasty shock. Consider this, even after mowing down India’s top half, England would not rejoice because they haven’t seen the trace of a Tendulkar or Dravid yet!

2. India should avail the existing extradition treaty with England -- or sign one if there is not any -- and force them to immediately send Harbhajan Singh back. They would be reluctant of course but these are the occasions when Manmohan Singh has to assert himself;

3. Sreesanth, Zaheer’s inevitable replacement, should bowl with his left arm to exploit Strauss and Cook’s weakness against left-arm bowlers;

4. Blood Arjun Tendulkar. That’s the only way to field a free-from-pressure Tendulkar. Already a Team India extension, Arjun has not missed many tours, attended more net sessions that Abhinav Mukund and can be India’s secret weapon;

5. Dravid batted and kept wicket at Lord’s with reasonable success. He should be allowed to bowl in Nottingham to complete the gamut in his final UK tour.

6. BCCI should immediately do whatever they do to be enabled to draw players from neighbours Pakistan and Sri Lanka and swiftly introduce a Kolpak-like ruling which allows half the side to be from Australia;

...and if nothing works...

7. Dhoni should stoop, grab it by the leg, lift it and then push with a perfect follow through. Of course there are other schools of thought but this is by far the most popular method of turning the table.

Printers are the gadgets that an office can’t run without. One can make numerous soft copies of the desired documents, but it’s the printers that generate the hard copies. Different documents for different purposes are to be made in different types of papers; a well compatible printer can meet that, like ones from Epson.

Its stylish, and ease of functionality, lesser power consumption, has made this gadget class a top priority for the users.

A watch is symbol of the consciousness of an individual, as far as fashion is concerned. Watch is more than a mere element in the outlook; it’s a part of the personality of an individual. Casio collections do play that part with brilliance. One can look at www.rightgadgets.in/items_subcat.asp?Category=Watches_India_Online&cid=4&brand=Casio for more.

Sony, the name is enough to communicate not quality assurance, but quality guarantee. Quality and only quality, that’s the mantra this electronic giant believed. This belief is reflected in its offerings, and laptops are the prefect examples of them. Different from the rest in the rest, a winner on its own; its Sony sizzlers that glitter the link at www.rightgadgets.in/items_subcat.asp?Category=Laptops_India_Online&cid=3&brand=Sony

I would add one more point.
Drop Dravid, laxman and sachin next match. Then the test will be over in one day if india bat's first or 2 days if england bats first. This will give dhoni and co more rest for 4th test.

Som said...

Chittaranjan, if the Test ends in 2 days, trust BCCI to arrange a short series with Sri Lanka to fill the void. Like Nature, BCCI abhors vaccum.
