0Amaqhinga Political Qala Series Ngenhliziyo Bang

Ebudeni ngeveki apho ihlabathi wabona uMongameli omtsha onyulwe Commander-in-Chief eMelika British Prime Minster Theresa May watyelela India, oko mhlawumbi ephaphamileyo uvavanyo lokuqala kuthelekiswa amaqhinga yehlabathi yezobupolitika.
Isisho ukuba veki lixesha elide kwezopolitiko - yaye ilizwi kuya kuvela kangakanani lesizwe kakhulu.
namarhe kodwa kwiintsuku ezimbalwa nje edlulileyo ezininzi (ngokwam ziquka) were fear­ing the hosts could inflict a series white­wash on the vis­it­ors — espe­cially if the top order in par­tic­u­lar didn’t apply them­selves bet­ter.

ngoku, nje emva kweentsuku ezintlanu bonke kubonakala kakuhle kwihlabathi. Cer­tainly Eng­land showed a lot of char­ac­ter to come away with a points vic­tory (the score­sheet will read draw). A subtle change can make the world of dif­fer­ence and the intro­duc­tion of the lad Haseeb Hameed as open­er was a pos­it­ive if not much needed step. And he cer­tainly took his chance, excel­ling in the open­ing birth. A lot has already been writ­ten about the 19-year-old’s suit­ab­il­ity for the longer ver­sion of the game – fin­gers crossed he lives up to the hype and Eng­land have finally found a part­ner worthy to sit along­side Alastair Cook.
Good to see Rashid get in the wick­ets. He didn’t quite fin­ish India off but the fin­ish­ing line was at least in sight. Hope­fully Eng­land can main­tain this momentum into the series although at some stage they will face a dust-bowl which turns square – how they handle that remains to be seen.
