I was there. I did not see a lack of intent. Fielding was superb even as we were given the heave ho by Sehwag and co. One can make a go of it but one doesn't have to be stupid about. Sure, we could have made a "go" of it and provide a brief and spectacular crash and burn. What is the point in that? They did try gamely and played to what they can do. The 270+ is going to come to good stead if rr becomes an issue. That is one very positive take away for us going forward. A #8 win over a #1 is not improbable but highly unlikely. We, including yours truly, wanted a repeat of 2007 but we also need to color our eternal optimism with a touch of reality. I will just have to ride the horses of my wishes another day.
