Indian Cricket Woes

I have been very busy the last few days preparing from some travel action. In the meanwhile, the world has moved on, including India's horrendous defeat against South Africa in a recent match. I didn't give much though to the matter except hoping that India wins the third test and square the series and do not allow a third defeat in 7 years at home (Remember they did not lose a single series at home between 1989 and 2001).

Anyhow, I came across this brilliant article on Cricinfo about India's recent home defeats, the woes and what we need to fix. Normally statistics in cricket is just used for admiration of a team/cricketer. This article, however, gives a great analytical insight into whats going wrong. A must read.
