  • Ajinkya Rahane's success so far, and it is important to remember that it has only been two innings as I write this, is an interesting development for both young cricketers and selectors.


    For those who think that getting your front foot out of the way, tonking a few and eyeing an IPL contract is the way ahead, the news is that the longer you bat the better you seem to get. Rahane has an outstanding first class record, has seen success and frustration and has shown the right attitude towards playing cricket. And 17 first class hundreds means he doesn't only know how to bat but also how to get runs. And those are two rather different things! He's shown himself to be quite capable in the T20I and the rained-out ODI against England as well.

    series. A lot of guys played a part in the win - Hussey with his man-of-match
    worthy 95 in the first innings, Lyon picked up 5-34 on debut, Clarke got an
    attacking 60 in the second innings and Harris had a fifer in the final innings
    to seal the victory. Another man with a major contribution was Shane Watson.


    Five crucial wickets in the game which included breaking Sri Lanka's 4th
    wicket partnership in the first innings by dismissing the first innings highest
    scorers Samaraweera and Paranavitana which led to Sri Lanka losing their last 7
    wickets for 18 runs. In the second innings, he got the big wickets of
    Sangakkara and Matthews, the final nail in the coffin, to give Australia a
    decisive victory. And on a low scoring pitch, he got a handy 22 runs on testing
    day one conditions. His performances should come as no surprise though; Watto's

    most consistent
