The first match was won by the team despite being in a precarious situation at one stage. Rain thwarted the victory march in the second test. The final test was going the Indian way till Kirk Edwards and Shiv Chanderpaul decided to show what they were made of. Chanderpaul has seen so much criticism come his way that he made his bat do the talking. There were talks that he was asked to quit test cricket and make way for younger generation - if his performance in this test was anything to go by, the youngsters have to prove themselves first before even thinking of taking his place in the eleven. Edwards on the other hand, looked shaky but went on to cobble a century.
The return of form of MS Dhoni and continued efforts of Suresh Raina, Abhinav Mukund and evergreen VVS Laxman were the highlights from the batting front. All this augurs well for the English tour where the four of them will most definitely play the Lords test match. Ishant Sharma bowled well again while Harbhajan improved his performance compared to the first 2 matches. The lack of penetration on the final day would worry Dhoni and Fletcher but with the return of Zak, there will be some solace.
Overall, a good tour for the Indians where they won 1 T20, 3 ODIs and 1 test match. Expected but nevertheless a decent result with the number of youngsters who were blooded in this series.
England, here we come.
