How did England tame Sachin?

  Here is an interesting article about how England managed to silense the bat of  the maestro who was in search of his 100th century.

The Great Wall of Indian Cricket

RAHUL DRAVID stands tall among the ruins of Indian cricket in England.   He is now the second highest century maker in Tests for India after Sachin Tendulkar.  He has pushed legendary Sunil Gavaskar to the third position.  Before going into the England series, he had 32 centuries, out of which only one did not bear fruit. That was against Zimbabwe 13 years ago in Harare, where he made 128. Unfortunately, the three hundreds that came after it were all for a losing cause. It is now four defeats out of 35 hundreds. 

Kudos to his hard work, dedication and commitment to the game.

Sree says , " England have played well"

Interacting with media after the second day’s play here, Sreesanth said: “Honestly, they (England batsmen) played well. You can’t take anything out of them because they played really well. They attacked. They stayed there. They kept leaving the good balls and they didn’t go fetching outside the off-stump. (Except) a couple of good shouts (nothing happened) but honestly it was also a pure batting track as well.”
