Mohammad in a recent article He was of course referring to the very realistic possibility of a first ever Pakistan Test series victory in the Caribbean and he was right But for that milestone to be achieved the victory in the first Test at Kingston was a necessity File photo of Younis Khan AP And speaking of milestones this Test had enough of those to fill many news columns and broadcast minutes To start with Sabina Park which has seen many a famous West Indies triumph in the past was the scene of a landmark 50th Test match played against the visiting Pakistan side The importance of the occasion should surely have driven the home side to put in their peak performances but as the empty seats in the iconic venue as well as some of the cricket played showed the interest and enthusiasm for the game is not what it used to be in the Caribbean And it wasn’t as if the Pakistan side that they were facing was a fine example of confidence going into this Test match With six successive Test defeats starting from the Sharjah one against West Indies as the backdrop to this series it would have been fair to assume that Pakistan were not at the top of their game and confidence was low Granted that they had briefly held the number one position in Tests in the past but too much water had flown under the bridge since that accomplishment West Indies batted first after being put in to bat by Pakistan on a pitch which seemed to have something in it for the bowlers If there was one bowler who wanted some assistance and luck it was Mohammad Amir His last bowling performance of any note in Tests had come in August 2010 in a match known more for the pain it caused Pakistan and the world of cricket than the five-wicket haul he managed to take against England Amir’s return to Test cricket was yet to see a performance of note and in terms of milestones the fast-bowler’s figures of 6/44 in the West Indies first innings could well mark the moment when he finally returns to the fore as one of the world’s finest Test bowlers Talking of memories Mohammad Abbas’ debut Test was a memorable one as well as he joined a select few who had taken their first Test wicket in the first over of their career With West Indies bundled out for 286 the limelight fell squarely on the main act of this Test match This was the matter of 23 runs that Younis Khan had to score to reach the milestone of 10000 runs which would make him the first Pakistan batsman to do so But even he understood that bigger than his achievement it was his team that needed to put in a score that would set-up a victory that they so badly needed At 54/2 a pensive looking Younis Khan walked out to the middle If there was any sign of nerves it was well hidden behind his determined face as he went about building his innings from scratch like he had done for the past 115 Tests But then the moment arrived and another glorious chapter was written in Pakistan’s cricket history Younis was eventually out for 58 to make way for another landmark performance by his fellow veteran Misbah-ul-Haq then took over the show in a manner only he can and has done for the last seven years he has been at the helm of the Pakistan Test squad With rain affecting Days 2 and 3 the quest for victory for Pakistan seemed to be a tough one West Indies’ first innings total was not impressive but it would need some resilient Pakistan batting to build a lead that could put the hosts under-pressure The wicket wasn’t conducive to stroke-making and for Pakistan the key was to set-up a total that the likes of Yasir Shah could use to their advantage on a wearing pitch The Pakistan captain then went to work to grind down the opposition bowlers and with excellent help from an aggressive Sarfraz Ahmed as well as the lower order took Pakistan to 407 For his hard work at the crease the Pakistan captain became the first Asian to score 99 not out in a Test as he was left stranded when Mohammad Abbas was the last man out late on the fourth day A lead of 121 on a track which was showing great promise for the spinners was exactly what the doctor ordered for Pakistan This was the kind of scenario that the visitorshad perfected for many years in the UAE and Yasir Shah went to work reducing an under-pressure home team to 93/4 by end of the day For West Indies to come out unscathed from the fifth day would have been close to a miracle but there was hope in some of the recent inconsistencies in the Pakistan bowling performances However for the Misbah-ul-Haq-led side the bowlers who had faced some flak in recent times came to the fore Mohammad Amir opened the floodgates with Wahab Riaz and the impressive Mohammad Abbas followed suit to put an end to any West Indian hopes of victory The day however belonged to the Man-of-the-Match Yasir Shah who ended up with a splendid haul of 6/63 with the West Indies being bowled out for 152 in the second innings leaving Pakistan a target of 32 to win Whilst Yasir could bask in the glory of this award the match really belonged to two super stars The Pakistan captain with his 25th Test victory the achievement of crossing the 5000 Test run barrier and the record-breaking Younis Khan who eased himself past the 10000 run mark The combined brilliance of the two stalwarts and their team has now put Pakistan well on their way to the ultimate prize; a first ever Test series victory in the Caribbean Talk about an unsung hero and a name that readily comes to the mind is Murali Vijay The opener’s monk-like countenance has had a calming effect at the top of the Indian order in Tests His contributions have been priceless and certainly one of the reasons why India today are on a 19-Test unbeaten run though in the lustre of a certain Virat Kohli his achievements tend to escape the eye However in no way can it be denied that he is a vital cog in Kohli’s team that is looking pretty unstoppable at the moment The numbers bear that out He may not have had a particularly great time in the New Zealand series last year that started off India’s home season but bounced back with two hundreds in the following series against England He added another hundred to his name in the last match – the one-off Test against Bangladesh – and will head into the Australia series brimming with confidence Murali Vijay firing at the start is imperative for India to do well against Starc and Co AFP He will be buoyed also by the fact that like VVS Laxman Australia have always been his favoured opposition and he has always done well against the team from Down Under Indeed assignments against Australia have without fail given Vijay the opportunity to prop up his career whenever it looked to be in the doldrums It was the Australians against whom he was handed a debut in 2008 but in an era when Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir ruled the roost Vijay could only be accommodated as a reserve opener Expectedly he didn’t get much of an opportunity and in roughly two years since his debut to the end of the Sri Lanka series in August 2010 he played only seven matches scoring a measly 333 runs with only two half-centuries Then came the Australia series in 2010 Vijay was not picked for the first Test of the series but in the second he made full use of the chance he got slamming his maiden Test century He got a full Test series against West Indies in 2011 but fared miserably with just 72 runs in six innings reaching double figures only twice He fell out of favour with the selectors as a result of that terrible tour of the Caribbean and for a player who had made his first class debut in 2006 Vijay’s career looked stuck in a rut with no hope of progress After about two years in the wilderness he got a chance to play another Test in the home series against Australia in 2013 India were smarting from a humiliating home loss to England and were looking to make amends and a solid start was key to their prospects against Michael Clarke’s men The first Test came and went and Vijay failed to make an impression with scores of ten and six It looked like his career would be headed in the way it had been doing till then: making scanty progress if any But then it took off and how Two 150-plus knocks in the next two innings meant that he had made the team management to sit up and take notice Again an Australia series provided an opening for Vijay to wriggle out of a tight spot The Tamil Nadu opener amassed 430 runs in seven innings with a robust average of a touch over 60 and was one of the main factors that India swept aside the tourists 4-0 exorcising the ghosts of both the whitewash at the hands of the same opposition in 2011-12 and the home series loss to England He had a good harvest in the next series against Australia in 2014-15 as well and along with Virat Kohli was a leading performer in what was otherwise a disappointing series for the Indians Set a 364-run target in the first Test in Adelaide he struck a 185-run stand with Kohli (141) for the third wicket and almost took his team over the line He was unlucky to have been dismissed one short of his hundred but showed that India had a solid opening batsman which had become so very necessary in the days after Sehwag and Gambhir He hammered a century in his next innings in Brisbane and ended the series with a tally of 482 runs in four matches In ten Tests against Australia he has scored 1162 runs which is a bit over 35 percent of his career runs in Tests It is the most number of runs that he has scored against any team His aggregate of 759 runs from ten matches against England is a distant second as far as total runs against various oppositions is concerned He has scored his runs against Australia at a rollicking average of 6115 which is his second-best average against any team The Australia series in 2013 proved to be a turning point in his career and since the start of that year till now he has been third in the list of highest run-getters among openers with 2657 runs after David Warner and Alastair Cook The four-Test series against Australia starting on 23 February would give him an opportunity to enhance his reputation as one of the pillars of the Indian batting One of the chinks in the armour of Kohli’s rampaging team has been the false starts that they have been getting with alarming regularity Vijay has done as well as he could but somehow the Indian openers have not been stringing together worthwhile partnerships The last time that the Indian openers pieced together a century stand before the Chennai Test against England in December was in the one-off Test against Bangladesh back in 2015 Since that Test in Fatullah Vijay has had many opening partners starting Shikhar Dhawan to KL Rahul Gautam Gambhir and Parthiv Patel The absence of a settled opening pair and lack of runs at the start of an innings could be killer blows against a top side like Australia As things stand today though Rahul is almost certain to be Vijay’s partner at the top of the order The two of them have had 12 partnerships scoring 227 runs at an average of a shade under 19 runs an innings That’s not flattering by any stretch of imagination and Vijay and Rahul will look to improve on that record Vijay would be fresh from a century against Bangladesh and Rahul on the other hand had hit a near-double ton against England in Chennai in the Test before A strong start to the innings is a must against the likes of Mitchell Starc Jackson Bird and Josh Hazlewood and Vijay along with Rahul would have to ensure that India get just that so that the Cheteshwar Pujara Virat Kohli and Co get a steady launch pad Another fruitful series against Australia will not only put the team on the path to success it would reinforce Vijay’s position as an indispensable member of Kohli’s side Click here to read profiles of other players involved in the India-Australia Test series Mumbai: A buoyed India will like to win their 10th international encounter on trot when they take on 125th ranked St Kitts and Nevis in their second round robin encounter of the Hero Tri-Nation Football tournament at Mumbai on Thursday The tournament is being seen as a preparatory one before India take on Macau in their Asian Cup qualifying encounter on 5 September India in last few months have won eight official international game and an unofficial friendly against Bhutan Needing just a draw on Thursday to win the tournament India have rested star striker Sunil Chhetri and number one goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu while Sandesh

won the first match against 160th ranked Mauritius 2-1 after trailing by a goal Seasoned duo of Robin Singh and Balwant Singh scored for the hosts Going with his youth policy chief coach Stephen Constantine is expected to hand over senior team debut to a few more talented U-23 players after the trio of goalkeeper Amrinder Singh Nikhil Pujary and Manvir Singh were blooded in the opening game Addressing reporters Constantine said his side need to start a little bit stronger than the last game "We have tendency to start slow and that sometimes causes problem as it did with Mauritius They got the first goal even Puerto Rico (in an international friendly last year) got the first goal We need to come out little bit quicker that is one of the key areas Defence is obviously is one of the key areas" he said Constantine said the good thing about this tournament was having two teams from different continents who have different philosophy style "St Kitts and Nevis did a good job in containing Mauritius They (St Kitts and Nevis) are quite dangerous especially on the counter attack and you could see in the goal (against Mauritius)" he said Asked whether some key players missing from St Kitts and Nevis line-up will make his job easier the India coach replied in negative "It makes my job harder because the players who are here are doing to possibly everything they can to show that they should be here There will be ISL clubs looking at these games I would have preferred a fully-loaded (side) here" Constantine quipped He also said that there should be an India Under-21 team in the I-League "I said it 15 years ago we should have Indian U-21 team in the I-League Five years after I left (2010) they did it We need an U-21 team put into the I-League because there needs to be a legitimate pathway for players because young Indian players are not getting opportunities that they should be getting" he said Constantine would want his team to play attacking brand of football and would certainly plug the loopholes pertaining to the first 15 minutes when the defence looked jittery Forwards Robin and Balwant would like to continue from where they left The prolific Jeje Lalpekhlua and young Manvir are also expected to play a crucial role if India has to register their 10th win on the trot The Indian defence comprising the likes of skipper Sandesh Jhinghan would play a crucial role in stopping the visitors’ attack The midfield is expected to be marshalled by Eugeneson Lyngdon Holicharan Narzari Jerry Lalrinzuala and Udanta Singh whom Constantine will expect to be consistent On the other hand St Kitts and Nevis who were held by a lower-ranked Mauritius to a 1-1 draw would like to put up an inspired show against the favourites Their coach Jacques Passy said that they are facing a "tough opponent" on Thursday "I have seen every game of India since coach Constantine took over India has improved dramatically you know what to expect from India It is clearly a team which defends brilliantly a team that plays 4-4-2 combination always and a team that is very sharp with two strikers" he said "We know what we are going to face and which players we are going to face We are going to face a team which has vision and that has won nine games in a row we are expecting a tough game" Passy added The St Kitts and Nevis coach did not buy the argument that absence of Chettri and Gurpreet will make things easier for them "I don’t buy the story that because India’s top players are not playing it is going to be easier The story that I buy is that I am facing an opponent that know how to play the game" he signed off The match starts at 8 pm Written by Faisal Fareed | Lucknow | Published: October 31 2012 6:35 am Related News For six yearsthe bilingual weekly
