“I can’t even find a way to describe it myself” – Darren Ganga
He spins my head right round, right round. Forgive the song, it just started playing as I began this post.
He literally does. Throughout the county season in England, I knew Laxman was upto un-Laxman things in T 20 cricket. I actually got a glimpse today live.
As I talk he’s on 29 with 6 of the most T 20 shots for the boundaries. Flat bats, heaves, upper-cuts. And he just hit an ugly shot in the air. This is not Laxman we are watching is it? Let’s see how this goes, we still haven’t seen a wristy flick yet.
Ah, a normal cut for 4. Oh no, that was Symonds.
Another heave. In-between was the first Laxman flick of the day.
In keeping up the pace with this magnificent tournament, an Australian collapse would have been the icing on an already very tasty looking cake.
Which is why what Hauritz and Lee did was wrong, plain wrong. They came in the way of a collapse against the world’s most collapsible team. Causing and demonstrating collapses is Pakistan’s thing. When they fall short of collapsing, the viewer feels robbed. Like we all were today. A one run victory would have made everything so spicy. Imagine the tension a little bit away if the Indians had to make that target in about 28 overs.
All the Indians would say how it’s all because India were the number 1 team in ODI’s. Everyone in Pakistan would say it’s only because we love playing India in the finals. Every Australian would hate the Poms. Don’t ask me why, why do we all dislike their cricket. West Indies would probably have caused the upset that they have so threatened to cause till then. South Africans would laugh at Australia, saying no one chokes better than us.
Ah Pakistan, I know you’re moving away to a world where you play better cricket. No collapses for us to see then?
Everyone should take a minute out of their lives.
Kemar Roach just bowled what has to be the ball of the tournament.
Shane Watson just stood looking dumbfounded.
I couldn’t help but let out a scream. The joy at seeing that in-swinging yorker was unbelievable.
I wanted a picture of Shane Watson after the dismissal, but nothing’s come up as yet.
Ultimate. A fast bowler shattering the stumps first ball.
