Couldn help but wonder at how things have worked pretty similarly over the past year or so for Dravid and Ponting, the stars for India and Australia on India's tour down under. 2007 was the worst year for both with their year average hovering jus below 40, an utter disappointment to their legions of fans not to mention to the two legends themselves. Of considerable intrigue is their scores thus far in this series. Both of them failed to get going in the 1st test and now they have both manged to touch 50, in contrasting styles but with the same measure of luck. If this trend of tracking each other continues then one will have a tough time in picking whether we'd want simultaneous failures or for both of them to shine. Devil or the deep blue sea anyone?
