A good win - India levels the series

Morning I made a post on whether India would win – there were doubts in my mind as well.

From overnight 53/3 it became 62/4 with Ranadiv picking Ishant also. In walked Laxman
 who had been under pressure for some time. It was a nervous start but a very good partnership of 109 in the end. When Sachin departed also, the match was far from over but in a commanding position. Young Raina provided charming company to Laxman who was in great nick. This was a solid knock, a century in the fourth – a match winning one at that, which earned him the man of the match. Sehwag had his role running in for Laxman.

Not many would have noticed that this marks India’s 4th highest run chase in Tests. Good win at that.
