India-Oz series: Bradman would have called it `bloody good Test cricketNovember 15th, 2008 - 2:49 pm ICT by ANI
Sydney, Nov.15 (ANI): The recently concluded four-Test series between India and Australia, which India won two nil, would have been described by Australian cricketing legend Sir Donald Bradman as Bloody Good Test Cricket.
According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, a post-mortem of everything that happened in the series would suggest that it was a new low-water mark in international cricket, and most newspaper clippings indicated that sportsmanship was poor, the over rates were slow and the game’’s rules were made to seem outdated.
There was also a suggestion in the paper that the Australians were lacking in heart, skill and guile, but the fact remains that everyone was watching the games at the grounds and on their television screens for more than a month.
It was a lot of what is good about Test cricket gritty, relentless, sometimes boring, but overall, it provided the best and most enthralling cricket. (ANI)
