Batsmen put India in command
SAS NAGAR, Oct 13 Indian batsmen evinced a great deal of doggedness and application to put the team in a position of strength on the penultimate day of the first Test of the three-Test Pepsi Challenger Cup at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium here today.
Rahul Dravid scored sixth century in his 30th Test, while skipper Sachin Tendulkar notched up unbeaten 126 his 20th century in 69th Test as Indian batsmen created history, becoming the only team in international cricket to score a score in excess of 500 runs in the second essay after having been skittled out for less than 100 runs in the first attempt.
Saurav Ganguly showed deft placement and timing and played an entertaining knock of 64 not out off 75 balls studded with 10 fours and a six as the team scored 202 runs in 180 minutes of play.
Tendulkar and Dravid, who were involved in 229-run partnership for the third wicketthe third highest partnership for any wicket for India against New Zealand as the hosts declared their innings closed at 505 for three wickets one hour after the lunch break setting a 374-run target for the visitors to be made in one-and-a-half days.
The New Zealanders aided by sensible batting by opener Matt Horne and Craig Spearman, who have been at the crease for 188 and 141 minutes, respectively, kept the teams hopes of keeping the honours intact alive after the early loss of opener Mattews Bell, who was trapped lbw by fast bowler Javagal Srinath for seven.Both the batsmen, eschewing all aggression, just concentrated on survival and succeeded in the task though surviving the occasional close calls.The visitors had 80 runs on the board after having played 45 overs when the umpires decided to call off the days play.
The day, in a way belonged to Dravid, who continued to show a special kind of fascination for the New Zealand bowling attack.The Karnataka batsman made merry against the Kiwi bowlers during the teams previous winter tour which saw the stylish batsman score centuries in each of the innings of the last Test match.Dravid seemed so have started exactly from there scoring his third century in the last four innings he has played against the Kiwis.
The Indian batsmen put their heads down,when the play began and concentrated on the task at hand in a workmanlike manner.There was none of the reluctance as it was there yesterday.They grew in confidence as the innings progressed and started to take charge.
Dravid did not waste much time and cut left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori to backward point boundary to get past the three-figure mark. This was Dravids first century on the home soil.Both Dravid and Tendulkar continued to bat sensibly as the first hour produced 53 runs in 15 overs.Dravid on drove a Shayne OConners ball to boundary and then took a single as the 400-run mark was reached.
Tendulkar, though batted with a lot of motivation, did not show the type of flamboyance for which he is known. Seeing the batsmen at the other end collecting the runs without any fuss he was content to drop anchor.He straight drove Vettori exquisitely to the fence to reach the coveted three-figure mark.
Ganguly, who came in after the fall of Dravids wicket looked in fine touch and played some fluent drives sending the scoreboard moving. The left-handed batsmans 50-run partnership with his skipper came in 64 balls in which Gangulys share was 35 runs.
Ganguly faced 57 balls for his half century and hit nine fours and a six in his 10th fifty in 28th Tests

Windies restrict Lanka
SHARJAH, Oct 13 (UNI) Pace bowler Curtly Ambrose produced a fine spell as the West Indies restricted Sri Lanka to 178 all out in 49.2 overs in the opening match of the Triangular Coca Cola Trophy Cricket Tournament here today.
The West Indian bowler gave away just five runs in his 10 overs and claimed the prized wicket of Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya in his inspired effort.
Right from the start, Ambrose kept the free-stroking Jayasuriya in check before having him caught behind in his final over.
Jayasuriya, who began with a spectacular six over cover off Nixon McLean, made 28 off 52 balls.
The Sri Lankans struggled throughout and had managed to put up only 90 for two in the first 30 overs. They then suffered a middle order collapse during which they lost four wickets for just 28 runs.
The damage was done by part-time bowler Jimmy Adams and Sherwin Campbell, whose gentle medium pace was shrewdly employed by West Indian skipper Brian Lara.
Campbell, who was brought on in the 30th over, struck with his fourth delivery when he bowled Russel Arnold (20), the batsman failing to connect with the ball while attempting a sweep.
The bowler also had dangerman Aravinda de Silva caught behind by Ridley Jacobs after the batsman had made 27.
Mahela Jayawardene (10) was run out and Chamara Silva (4) fell to Adams.
The West Indies fielding was marked by two fine catches by Ricardo Powell. He dived to short mid-wicket to remove Atapattu and then took a high, swirling catch to dismiss Chaminda Vaas (11).
Sri Lanka, 118 for six at one stage, recovered through Rumesh Kaluwitharna, who topscored with 36. He was involved in a 44-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Vaas.
Once Vaas made his exit, the tailnders simply folded up, without putting up any resistance.
MaClean took two for 40 Campbell got two wickets for 52 runs.

Aussies gear up to face Zimbabwe
HARARE, Oct 13 (Reuters) Steve Waughs Australians are braced to combat a Zimbabwe side fired up to make the most of a rare opportunity in the inaugural Test between the two teams starting today.
Like the seven other countries to have played the African side, Australia may not have things all their own way in the one-off Test at the Harare Sports Club.
It has taken seven years for Australia to find a gap in their schedule for a Test against Zimbabwe, leaving just West Indies as the only side not to have met the newest Test nation over five days.
Despite a miserable preceding tour of Sri Lanka in which Australia suffered persistent rain and defeat in both Tests and one-day internationals, captain Waugh remains upbeat about the 20-day tour of Zimbabwe.
Taking both a long term view as well as an immediate one, Waugh said: It is important that the top Test-playing nations play against the newer ones and give them experience.
Its good for us, too, to play against Zimbabwe. Some of us might never get the opportunity again so it sort of rounds off the career.
I think Zimbabwe deserve it, theyre a good cricket side now. Theyve played some excellent games and they have a talented squad actually its going to be a very good Test match, Waugh said.
The home side will be relying on team spirit and a collective will rather than brilliant individual performances to be competitive against the worlds best side.
Waugh, as always, has done his research and is aware of what to expect.
Theyll be fired up, its a big opportunity for them. They work well together as a team, they havent got any brilliant individuals but they field well, and theyre a pretty good batting side, Australias skipper observed.
Indeed, Grant Flower is a proven Test opener, his brother Andy averages 43.5 in 33 Tests and Murray Goodwin, Zimbabwe-born but Perth-raised, averages 53 in nine Tests.
Former South Africa A team allrounder Neil Johnson is well known to the Australians after his scintillating, unbeaten 132 against them at Lords during the World Cup.
The local bowling options are far more limited, though, with only Henry Olonga being genuinely fast. Heath Streak is still recovering after knee surgery three months ago while left armer Bryan Strang and Johnson are worthy medium pacers.
In the absence of both leg-spinners Paul Strang is injured and Adam Huckle is needed on the farm Zimbabwe may play off-spinner Andy Whittall or even leave the job to part time left-armer Grant Flower.

Breakthrough needed: Sachin
SAS NAGAR, Oct 13--"We are in a good position and need a breakthrough," said a relaxed Sachin Tendulkar after the conclusion of the day's play as the visitors finished the day at 80 for one in pursuit of 374-run victory target.
" We batted well and the batsmen showed a lot of patience," he replied refusing to concede that the New Zealanders bowled a leg-side line."It was not a negative line. They were very positive."Tendulkar refused single out a particular batsman saying that they all batted well.
To a query as to how it felt to score a hundred the batting maestro replied:"To score a century is always a good feeling and very satisfying."
The skipper complimented the bowlers saying that they bowled well in the second innings though without luck.
Rahul Dravid, who also scored a century looked modest after scoring
144:"It's good to come out on top once in a while." He, however, rated 190 runs he earlier made against the New Zealanders in the previous tour as a better innings.
Asked to comment on the
first century on the home soil, the Karnataka batsman
quipped that it was good in the sense that the fans would
now stop asking him about not having reached the
three-figure mark in India so far.
PSB, Air-India enter semis
MUMBAI, Oct 13 (UNI) Punjab and Sind Bank (PSB) of Jalandhar today played superb all-round hockey to show the door to the three-time champions Indian Airlines, Delhi, 4-1 in the quarter-finals of the Gold Cup Hockey Tournament here at the Mahindra Stadium.
In the fourth quarter-finals Air-India squeaked past Sikh Regiment with a last five-minute goal from Kishore Kumar.
Now PSB will meet Bharat Petroleum and Air-India will face Punjab Police in the semi-finals on Friday.
Indian Airlines, which for years has provided nucleus to the national side came to grief in the 13th minute when in a full paced PSB thrust of a short corner was forced following which Sandeep essayed a goal-bound push. It hit a defender and the stroke was well converted by Rajinder Singh.
In an otherwise drought first half the only time the fans sat up was when Altaf-ur-Rehman delayed a shot very near the goal.
Indian Airlines missed a short corner specialist of early years. None of the nine they got proved any threat to the bankmen.
The second half belonged to PSB who sank the Airlines with a three-goal pasting. But before that Airlines seemed fresh with Shakeel Ahmed making a defence splitting move and then watching his work wasted with Brojen hitting the post.
PSB increased the lead in the seventh minute following an obstruction few metres away on the extreme left. Jagdeeps shot went straight to Baljit Chandi who drove like a golfer from the edge of the circle.
The Airlines hit back the next minute. Dilip Tirkey showed the same presence of mind when a stray ball came to his right in the circle.
PSB went ahead within two minutes due to a fine joint venture from Parminder and Bhupinder. The latter sent Ashish Ballal the wrong way for the third goal.
The fourth goal came from a sudden counter attack and it was Chaini who scored.
The Sikh Regiment was at
receiving end twice in the match against Air-India. Once
Baljit Singh cleared the ball near the goal and then
goalie Jaspal dived to tackle a goal-bound sweep from
Deepak Thakur. The sole goal was more the result of a
measured centre from Edward and timely short pass from
Anil Aldrin to the scorer Kishore.
