India’s test match victory!

Peter Roebuck writes,
“Ultimately the battle between scrapper and stylist, gritty and
graceful, artisan and artist ended in favour of a vastly relieved home
side. Regardless, it was a triumph for Test cricket. The
thrill-a-minute versions of the game were put in their place by this
slow-burning contest.”

Test cricket may be slow, but beneath the veneer of sluggish, almost
deliberate leisure, the undercurrents of tension speak of high drama
and suspense when it plays out at its best. It was hearty to follow
that the Indians and the Australians the most fierce and best
opponents of each other, built the tensions and the high drama that
symbolizes much of cricket. The classic charm of a five-day test match
is hard to beat. Look forward to more of it. Hope India wraps up the
series in style.
