The 2nd test would be a real challenge for us for various reasons. Our history shows that we have often failed to stitch together two good performances in a row. A fighting fifth day performance is often followed by a humiliating innings defeat. I am really optimistic that we can put an end to that trend.

The Indian batting line up is vaunted and if Dhoni returns will be even more formidable. If we can restrict them to 400 in the first innings, it would be an unqualified success. If we stand any chance of competing, we have to bat at least four sessions. Anything less and we will be chasing the opposition the entire length of the game.
