Spinners spin India to 2-0 victory

India proved once again that in home conditions they make a rather formidable opposition. In fact only one team has won a Test series here in the last 15 years.
The Harbhajan Singh - Anil Kumble duo look well on course for taking their place in the honoured list of the great Indian spinning pairs of the past. Kumble who was MOM for the first test as well as the Man of the Series, and Singh, the MOM for the second test, shared between them 28 wickets in the two Tests. In his 32nd year, Kumble, with over 300 wickets in the bag, is at the peak of his powers, while his partner, 10 years younger, obviously has his better days ahead of him. In Picture: The victorious Indian Cricket team with the trophies; Sourav Ganguly with the Pepsi Cup. 1st Test, Vidarbha CA Ground, Nagpur:
Zim (287 all out, 103.5o and 182 all out, 88.4o) lost to Ind (570/7 dec, 184.5o) by an innings and 101 runs
MOM: A Kumble (33.5-12-82-4 and 37-15-63-5) 2nd Test, Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi:

MOM: Harbhajan Singh (27.5-5-70-2 and 31-5-62-6) India Cricket Live
