For all the wrong reasons, Indian batting was the talk of the town against England. It is the cynosure of all the eyes now, and the reasons have brought smiles on faces of all and sundry. NDTV cricket expert Sunil Gavaskar has praised the batting resurgence against Australia after the England debacle at home.

India not only won the second Test in Hyderabad on Tuesday and with it took a 2-0 lead but also have beaten the mighty Aussies handsomely. With Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli firing on all cylinders and bowlers looking in fine form, the former Indian skipper believes that India can do even better as a Test side.

"The batting coming good has made a big difference. The batting let us down against England and pressure was on the bowlers even on turning tracks. A couple of guys are still short of runs but generally batting has come good now. It is good for the captain also who can keep the pressure up with attacking fields. It is a team effort nonetheless," said Gavaskar.
