Rise of the captain

Written by Kashif Aziz on March 12th, 2006   (1,412 views)

Andrew Flintoff, the shy giant of a cricket player, got himself involved with captaincy when Michael Vaughan and Marcus Trescothick returned home due to knee and domestic problems respectively. It seems that Freddie is enjoying his captaincy days out in the field as he is leading the team both with the bat and ball. Flintoff made 70 runs in first innings and took 4 wickets including that of Dravid and Tendulkar. Now he is playing on 16 not out at end of Day 4. The match still has some spark in it. Although England has a lead of 74 runs with 5 wickets remaining, it is still possible that India can bowl them out before 300 runs and chase the target to victory.

Munaf Patel India’s debutant in this match, Munaf Patel, is also bowling very impressively. With 3 wickets in first innings and 1 so far in the 2nd, Munaf is going to be a major threat for out-of-form Zaheer Khan and Ajit Agarkar.
