India is back on the winning track and the margins of victory in the previous two ODIs against England may well have brought back the positive vibe to the team and skipper MS Dhoni.
Knowledge is spread by live TV coverage of games, and also exported through experts (coaches and support staff) who make their expertise available according to the dynamics of market forces. That is why Allan Donald (from South Africa) sat in the English dressing room for a while, and David Saker (from Australia) and Mushtaq (from Pakistan) continue to do even now.
He appeared the usual calm, stoic self, in control of his emotions, the trademark determined look on his face very much in place. Initially the batting was far from vintage Sachin Tendulkar --he scratched, played and missed as balls flew past his bat. But it was not long before genius asserted himself, out came the punched hit off the backfoot, then the flowing cover drive.
After Ahmedabad, a triumphant MS Dhoni sounded arrogant, and imperious. That time it looked England was completely done because they could not handle spin, and pundits predicted a mismatch in subsequent tests. The deal, everyone thought, was sealed and signed. Now, the tables have turned, not just the pitch and the ball. Suddenly , England looks assured and confident , their batting led by Cook , a gritty battler with endless patience and KP , a majestic , impactful match winner .
