India vs England 2nd Test Final Scorecard

December 24th, 2008 Posted in Scorecard, Test Match

Mahendra Singh Dhoni "We played very well. We needed a big partnership in the first Test and Tendulkar and Yuvraj stood up. Here there was a bit of moisture in the wicket, but there wasn’t much in it for the spinners and there was the lost time. When we went into bat we weren’t sure about the fog, we started well today and both Gautam and Yuvi deserved their centuries but sadly couldn’t get them. We are just concentrating on our plans and are enjoying the cricket we are playing. We’ll just to prepare well in the future."

Kevin Pietersen "There’s a lot to learn from a tour of India. We’ve enjoyed comeback for the Tests. We got into a position to win in Chennai but couldn’t pull it off. I’m really proud to be captain of a bunch of lads who jumped on a plane back and their concentrated on their cricket. The way they got themselves into a good position last week they can take a lot from."

Zaheer Khan is Man of the Series. That’s a pleasing, if slightly surprising, award. It’s often the batsmen who get honoured more, but Zaheer has bowled well especially with his reverse swing. "We are working well as a unit. I was hoping to get more wickets. It’s been good since I cam back from injury and we all enjoy the success of each other. It’s been a great year for Indian cricket."

Gautam Gambhir is Man of the Match. "I’m very honoured," he says. "If someone told me I’d get so many runs I’d have taken it. I’ve had a hunger for runs and have been in good form. All innings you play for your country are special. It was a good wicket, we should have won 2-0."
