Dravid wants to "experiment" for the remaining three matches. Maybe he will ask Dhoni to bowl and Harbhajan to keep wickets.

If it is to be football, English fans would beat the Indian fans because the Indian fans would be heavily outnumbered. All Indian football fans would rather be watching a Brazilian third division match than watch an India versus England match...

Even if Banglas eventually lose the test they have already morally won it.
Australia 152/6 against Bangladesh trailing almost 275 runs with 4 wickets left to avoid a follow-on.
Meanwhile Dhoni is the darling of the masses.
" From "Sachin, Sachin" the most popular refrain at grounds all over the country these days is "Dhoni, Dhoni." He commands the sort of popularity reserved for the superstars. People like his batting style, the towering sixes he hits and also the `inside out' fours off even good deliveries. Those strokes are his innovation, like the flicked six off a yorker at Goa.
He smiles. "It was a natural. I played a lot of tennis ball cricket in Ranchi and we had to face a lot of yorkers. We use to play on 18-yard pitches and had to be ready for balls pitching in the blockhole. You have to create scoring opportunities."
