India's Mohammed Shami up to No 7 in ICC Test bowling rankings

India's Mohammed Shami up to No 7 in ICC Test bowling rankings

"Most teams from the subcontinent face the real test when they travel overseas, except the current Indian side as they have all bases covered".

Mominul said the result could only get better.

In the first over itself, Ishant even attempted the magic ball - trying to get the ball to angle in far enough to pitch on middle/middle-and-leg and then shape away sharply to square up the batter. "India will take a lot of advantage of that", Islam told PTI in a telephonic interview. India is the biggest country in terms of cricket.

"The (Indian) bowling attack was challenging".

Whatmore, under whose coaching Bangladesh stunned India in the 2007 World Cup on the way to the Super Eight stage, agreed that the visitors should have done better with the bat, while they also erred in playing with just two pacers on the Indore track.

"The world normally follows Australia in cricket, there's nothing wrong in that. That´s why you see the hunger", said Rathour. India can be a role model.

Iran warns security forces may act against gas price protests
Iranian protesters clash in the streets. "Protesting is the people's right, but protesting is different from rioting". In a speech aired on state television, Khamenei said "some lost their lives and some centers were damaged".

And it looks like Ashwin will come up with the mother of all variations when India take on Bangladesh in the second Test at the Eden Gardens. When Nathan Lyon nicked Ishant Sharma into the gloves of Rishabh Pant at Melbourne Cricket Ground, India not just created history of beating the Aussies in a Test series for the first time but earned themselves tremendous self belief. The forthcoming tour to New Zealand would be a great indicator of India's real challenge in the Test championship. The points range from 60 points for each match of a two-Test series to 24 for each match of a five-Test series. The army, it is believed, will also play both teams' national anthems before the start of the game.

In a post match interview after the Indore Test, the three Indian pacers were complimenting one another, giving due credit to each other for the victory. "Hope this is successful".

On Friday, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin got a first feel of playing with the pink ball under lights during a day-end net session at the Holkar Stadium. "Taijul, Mehidy are bowling to some of the best in the world, so they need to be much more disciplined".

"If you ask me, we [India's fast-bowling attack] are right at the top".

Mascots of the Test - Pinku and Tinku - were unveiled in the presence of BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Sunday, in the hope that it would attract kids to the Test. They showed in the second innings (of the first Test) that they have it in them to stage a fightback.
