WI Test win is no small feat!

I do not agree with Magazine that this win one in West Indies is less than the '71 win. What was WI's team then? Just Gary Sobers and Rohan Kanhai at the fag end of their careers, a very young and yet to establish himself, Lloyd and no pace battery which made WI invincible 75 onwards! This WI team might have too many internal problems but they have some class batsmen and young pacers. India's difficulty has always been taking 20 wickets in a match and those class batsmen didn't make India's task as easy as it could have been against Zimbabwe or Bangladesh!

I just do not agree with Magazine that this win one in West Indies is less than the '71 win. What was WI's team in '71? Just Gary Sobers and Rohan Kanhai at the fag end of their careers, a very young and yet to establish himself, Lloyd and no pace battery which made WI invincible 75 onwards!

This WI team might have too many internal problems but they have some class batsmen and young pacers. India's difficulty has always been taking 20 wickets in a match and those class batsmen (remember they have chased the highest total in the 4th innings and that too against Aussies) didn't make India's task as easy as it could have been against Zimbabwe or Bangladesh!
