For India, there was some wonderful bowling performances by Pravin Kumar and Ishaant Sharma. Both manage to add 5-wicket hauls to their statistics.
On the Batting front, it was ‘The Wall’, Rahul Dravid, who again showed why he is regarded as one of the best Test players for India. The yougsters also performed well, with Suresh Raina scoring 82 in the first innings. After the last match, Dravid applauded the younger players and said they would even surpass the achievements of the team that played in his era. In 1996 (15 years back), Rahul Dravid made his debut, along with, Saurav Ganguly and VVS Laxman also debuted in the same year.
If India wrap up this test series, it would be another feather in Captain Dhoni’s cap. The last match was just the 5th Test match win for India in West Indies.
