Shourov Brian and Abhik

Perth 2008 - after the bitter acrimony of the "Monkey-gate" affair, two fired up teams face off on a unusually placid WACA track.  Australia brings one of the fastest bowling attacks ever assembled, but a lanky young fast bowler from Delhi turns heads by shaking up the legendary Ricky Ponting.

Shourov brings a classic game full of surprises, including a characteristically execrable spell from Shaun Tait and an uncharacteristic brain-fade from Rahul Dravid.  But Ishant Sharma vs Ponting is the real game within a game, leading to tales of other young firebrands from our lives.

Today's game: 3rd Test, India tour of Australia at Perth, Jan 16-19 2008
