India’s win in the second T20 in Ahmedabad is good for the context of the tour; the 1-1 scoreline sets up the three-match one-day series nicely. The T20 was closely fought, but some improved death bowling helped India save face after two consecutive T20 losses. The two teams haven’t seen much of each other in the last two years, with India winning all three one-dayers in that period – their most recent meeting was in Mirpur this March for the Asia Cup.
This short one-day series promises to be just as competitive, provided the weather doesn’t stand in the way. It has been raining in Chennai since Friday and more rain is forecast for Sunday. A 9am start means there’s less time for the outfield to dry up. Bizarrely, this is the first time India will be playing a one-dayer at home in 2012, having played games in Australia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. If the wet weather persists, there’s a chance this series may only properly start in 2013, which is just a few days away.
Pakistan have fond memories of Chepauk, where Saeed Anwar scored his iconic 194 in a one-dayer in 1997 and where they staged one of Test cricket’s most remarkable comebacks. Pakistan can do with the happy vibes, because despite the Asia Cup win they haven’t had the happiest year in one-day internationals, winning six and losing ten. The series defeats to Sri Lanka and Australia, following the Asia Cup, would have hurt.
