    Deja vu all over again - part VI

    This is just too much of a coincidence. Thrice in a year, India have squandered opportunities to win a crucial test match when a key player in the opposition has been absent.

    First, when Inzamam (no less!), missed the Karachi test with a bad back, India messed up despite Irfan Pathan's dream start to the game.

    A month later, with Steve Harmison missing out at Mumbai due to shin problems, India cocked up yet again. Of course, you could argue if Harmison was a key player for England, but it still sucked!

    On Saturday, I got a lovely birthday present, with a spineless batting display (the 150 runs scored by South Africa's lower order in both innings proved so vital!), India allowed South Africa to draw level, like I'd warned, despite the absence of Jacques Kallis.

    this is so irritating that we keep losing very often after taking a 1-0 lead.

    I guess the team finds it difficult to accept being in the lead. Maybe we should let teams wallop us the first test and ask us to follow on in the second, henceforth :)
