One-nil down and three to go, England will be in serious dilemma going into the third Test starting at Southampton on July 27 (Sunday). India's 95-run win at Lord's on Sunday will have sent the England team management in a tizzy. Apart from Alastair Cook's form, England will ponder over the nature of wicket they want for the remainder of the series.
India have surely broken a myth about enjoying 'home' conditions. This new generation Indian team can look the opposition in the eye.
Effectively, it loves to hook, pull and young men like Ravindra Jadeja won't hesitate to 'give it back' to the opposition . Aggression is the middle name of Team India.
When positive attitude mixes with skill, it becomes a heady mix. Nature of wickets and quality of bowlers do not matter. Then battle between bat and ball becomes an encounter in the mind. You don't throw in the towel before you step out of the dressing room and walk up to take guard or etch your bowling mark with the spikes.
