Gulu Ezekiel Blog: DLF Cup
by
Sep 11, 2006
The DLF tri-series beginning in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday is shaping up as a vital tune-up for the three teams, India, the West Indies and Australia ahead of the Champions Trophy in India next month.

All three teams are short of match practice, though the West Indians have been recently involved in their first domestic 20/20 tournament.

With last month's ODI series in Sri Lanka being washed out, India will be desperate to get their players into some sort of form, in particular Sachin Tendulkar who is returning to international cricket after his latest shoulder injury that forced him to miss the tour to the West Indies.

World champions Australia have gone in with a squad of 18 and there will be a lot of interest in new find, left-arm pace bowler Mitchell Johnson.

Also under the spotlight will be Glenn McGrath who will be seen in action for the first time this year. The contest between him and McGrath will be worth going miles to see. There are indications that Simon Katich will open the batting with Adam Gilchrist. The West Indians have been beset with problems off the field since beating India 4-1 in the ODI series at home earlier this year. No wonder captain Brian Lara has urged his players to focus on the tournament. The big question mark will be over the pitch conditions since the only previous occasion KL had hosted international cricket was back in 1998 during the Commonwealth Games.
