Cricketing Cliche 20

Foot to the pedal.

Many cricket writers are no doubt wondering if Virender Sehwag will "put his foot to the pedal" after the lunch break. Will he (cliche coming up) up the tempo, perhaps, and (one more) take the attack to the bowlers.

From what has happened in the morning session, he is quite capable of doing that. Kaneria, especially, looks set for a tonking, with both Sehwag and Rahul Dravid playing him comfortably. Of course, Pakistan began badly in Mohali as well, and fought back well. Can they do so here again?
