India set to pile on more humiliation on England in Mumbai Test
Already 1-0 up in what has been touted as the 'revenge series', another victory for Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men will ensure that England's quest for their first series win on Indian soil in 27 years will continue. It will also keep Indian on track for a whitewash, some have referred to it as 'brownwash', and avenge the 4-0 defeat they suffered during their last tour to England.
India totally outplayed England in the opening game of the four-match series on a dusty bowl at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad except for a fightback by captain Alastair Cook and wicketkeeper Matt Prior that kept them afloat till the final day after the home side took a huge 330-run first innings lead.
Barring Cook and Prior, who scored 176 and 91 in England second innings in Ahmedabad, the other visiting batsmen looked all at sea against the Indian bowling attack led by left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha who emerged with a nine-wicket haul.
The match at Wankhede Stadium tomorrow would also be significant with Virender Sehwag set to become the only ninth Indian player to feature in 100 Tests.
