Melbourne wicket has a strange look

Melbourne: The Indians had their first look at the (drop-in) wicket at the MCG, on Monday afternoon, and came away slightly confused.

The first Test begins on Wednesday.

“There was much grass at one end and hardly any at the other… I’ve been informed that there will eventually be an even spread… Let’s see,” cricket manager Lalchand Rajput told The Telegraph.

For a change, there was bright sunshine for much of the day and, so, the dampness should disappear.

Meanwhile, former captain Rahul Dravid remains the favourite to open with specialist Wasim Jaffer — unless, of course, he does a complete U-turn from his public position.

In case of a rethink, indications are that the think tank will “gamble” with Virender Sehwag and not Dinesh Karthik.

If that does happen (seemed highly unlikely on Monday night), then Yuvraj Singh will have to miss out.
