India vs. South Africa: Old whine in new series

Given the state of affairs in Indian cricket, the result of the first ODI between India and South Africa at Durban yesterday came as a (pleasant) SHOCKER! I couldn't help but wonder how the Indians managed to get so many runs!! I was betting upon an under-fifty score. The hell with Harsha Bhogle and Sunil Gavaskar who termed the defeat as ‘annihilation’ and ‘capitulation’ respectively. They are obviously missing the woods for the trees.

Greg Chappell and his poodle Rahul Dravid are doing a great job. Fantastic! You can now safely bet that they would cross the magical figure of 100 runs in the coming matches. If they played out of their skins then 150 runs can be a possibility.

Come on India, do it for your adoring billion and some.
