Dhoni and coach Duncan Fletcher were emphatic in their irritation to suggestions that they should have decided otherwise, but the signal sent this weekend will interrogate India for a long time. There is, first, the fact that, with Rahul Dravid and V.V.S. Laxman at the crease, and with Dhoni, Virat Kohli and recently spunky tail-enders like Harbhajan Singh yet to bat, India were very safely placed and at a crunch could have played out the 15 overs for a draw. The signal emanating from Sunday's decision is not so much that India were safeguarding their lead in the series — it is that, if easy victory is not assured and if it does not significantly alter their takeaway, they will not make the effort to snap it up. One-Test margin or two-Test, same difference.
