India looking to break Oval drought

August 8, 2007

Sitting pretty on their 1-0 lead after the victory at Trent Bridge, India will be looking to end a 21-year-long drought of a series triumph in England as they square up against the hosts in the third and final cricket Test at the Oval in London on Thursday.

    Even as the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Anil Kumble will be looking for their crowning glory moment in England -- being a part of a victorious Indian team -- in the evening of their respective careers, they need to take care of a jinx that has been plaguing the side in recent years.

    Too often in the past, India has taken a lead in the series only to allow the opposition to turn the tables on them.
