Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina led a balsy counter-attack to neutralize West Indies’s early advantage of bowling down India to 85-6. At tea on the first day of the first test match against West Indies, India are 219-6 with Harbhajan on 67 and Suresh Raina on 70.Their partnership is 139 runs and the last session of play resulted in 150 runs
In the last over before tea, Harbhajan blasted a six off Bishoo and Raina got two awesome Fours.
As one user (Sai) noted, Sai: “Harbajan has been involved in a few game breaking partnerships for India,ones that come to mind are his partnerships with tendulkar and another one with Dhoni both against Australia.”
The cricinfo writers summary, “150 runs in this session, courtesy a counter-attacking stand from Raina and Harbhajan, Raina has been as solid as I have ever seen him to be, and Harbhajan’s spunk has matched his timing.” ( i like that one)
Can the two take India to a respectable total. I am really amazed by Suresh Raina – the kid knows how to handle pressure and come up with brilliant counter-attacks. All the T2o has really helped Indian players, i guess.
