Tough contest ahead

In the second cricket test match, India totally outclassed the mighty Australia. Coming into the third test, its been a week since the aussies tasted the bitter experience which they usually present it to their opponents. But the aussies have come through a week to regroup and we could expect a charged up team at Delhi, the venue for the third test.

India have won their last seven tests at Delhi and its bean a hunting ground for Kumble, who is likely to continue where he left off in Bangalore due to a stiff shoulder. It will be a real test of character for him. Previous stats are that the Indian batsmen have done considerably well here with Ganguly leading the list followed by Dravid. India will never have a better venue than this to come up with an undefeatable lead in the series. In the mean time the aussie will be raring to come out of their den. Aussies will be looking for some runs from their 'run machine', Hayden. Also the spin department may play a great role as Ponting described the pitch as 'loose'. Jason Krezia may make his debut.

Play might be delayed due to the smog over the ground. Lets hope for a good contest.
