India won 1st Test match against West Indies comprehensively and are delighted for upcoming test matches which are to be most important for them and keeping them stay healthy and winning condition. India won 1st Test in West Indies tour of India 2011/2012 and started the series with win.
Sammy: ”We sort of expected the declaration and were mentally prepared for it. Bishoo had a slight knock while playing football, so he didn’t get to bowl. Samuels stepped up well, our strategy with the ball was to play out time. The physio is monitoring Shiv closely, and hopefully we will have him and Simmons for the next game. The way we bowled our lines and restricted them on a hard pitch was good. Kirk, Bravo and Simmons put on some runs towards the end as well. Hopefully we can put up an improved performance in Dhaka.”
Man of the Match:
Elias Sunny is but of course the Man of the Match. Just a reminder than Ashraful was also a debutant Man of the Match. “I enjoyed myself quite a lot on debut, I maintained the line and got the results.”
Rahim: ”We thought we will give our bowlers a chance with the declaration, and see if we can get them 4-5 down. It is difficult to score so many runs quickly on the final day, I was happy with how we batted before the declaration. A lot of positives in the game, but our batsmen need to stay on after getting starts and go big. We are very confident ahead of the next match.”
Hands are shook, bails are dislodged, smiles break out and there is a lot of camaraderie as the match is called off one hour in advance. All moral wins go to Bangladesh here, and West Indies will be relieved knowing the Mirpur pitch won’t spin so much.
“Was 8 an over over 15 overs with eight wickets in hand impossible?” We’ll never know Pronoy, on a fifth day pitch. By the way, both teams had a hand in calling off the game. Neither believed it was worth the risk, and I can see where they are coming from.
“No wonder test cricket is dying. Thought 128 of 15 overs with 8 wickets was possible. Calling off the match when we have a situation like this is reasons why I support T20.” Ken, I go with the players here. They have done pretty much everything they could to produce a result after losing 2 whole days to rain. And unlike us, the players’ main motivation is not to force a result as much as to force a winning result. If they had hypothetically played this out, the team that ended up losing wouldn’t have deserved it. Especially if that happened to be Bangladesh.
