India - Pakistan

Tonight the first test bewtween India and Pakistan is
beginning in Mohali. As has been suggested earlier, this
is one of the most talked about rivalries in all of sport,
definitely in cricket anyway. And as such this series
would be keenly watched. Pakistan is on a full tour of
India after 6 years and so this series assumes added
importance. After comprehensive victory of India in
Pakistan last year in both Test and One-day series,
Pakistan will be looking for revenge. Both teams enter
the series searching for form. Indians are playing after
an unusually long break and Pakistan are just coming
from a drubbing in Australia. All in all, a great series to
look forward to.

Sachin Tendulkar needs just 121 more runs for 10,000
and just one more hundred for surpassing Gavaskar's
34 centuries.
