The Line of Control Series

I am not surprised at the results so far in the Indo-Pak cricket series after seeing what we did in Australia early this year. Pakistan has no batsmen save Inzaman and Youhana compared to vast array of talent in the Indian camp. Who would think that a player like Tendulkar would play an anchorman to the 'new blasters on the block' Sehwag, Laxman and Dravid?
For years I felt that these were the main problems with the Indian team and why we always seemed to
'snatch defeat from the jaws of victory'

1. Great batting order that failed to click together and relied too much on Tendulkar to go get the runs or make them quickly.
2. A absolutely pathetic bowling lineup. Ever more pathetic pacers
3. Horrible fielding.
4. Poor attitude towards winning.

In the past 2-3 years almost all of points 1-4 have been reversed.
