We never got to see the infamous Mumbai wicket come into action.
But then again, India had no Murali Kartik to do the part.
What do you make of this series?
Australia survive Indian tailenders, India blasts Australia, Dhoni and Yuvraj go back to 2005, India let their overconfidence do them in, Australia survive Sachin and 10 others faceless cricketers, India fail to survive a 8 30 start
Sure their were a couple of huge scores and one excellent match along with one Watson induced excellent match, but this series was too how should I say it? Nice?
When I heard Ponting complaining about the net services provided to him in the beginning I was rubbing my hands in glee waiting for it to blow up but nothing happened.
Dhoni’s too nice to say stuff, Praveen Kumar didn’t beat anyone up, and Harbhajan didn’t call himself the best batsmen in the world, Ricky’s become a model student, Yuvraj just seems to put on weight all the time, there was no Clarke around to charge Katich up, and I can’t even remember the other Australian cricketers. Screw them and their injury policy.
Now the only one who added spice was Siddle, spicy Siddle. I swear I saw smoke out of his nostrils once. He broke down too, what a pity.
Australia wanted to win, and they won. India did not like the 8 30 start so they were ultimately shit.
What is with a 4-2 scorline between these two sides. Do they like promoting a six match series or is it something deeper?
And threw him out like a piece of chewed up gum. Exactly the way it should be.
Shane Watson deserves no better anyway.
I want the whole world to realize the worthlessness of Shane Watson.
Harbhajan did his crazy best but India were never in it. The fact that they got 4 runs close is a pointer to how he played. And Kumar. Not to forget Praveen. Some of the shots were pure class. And the others were pure slaps. It all came so good for those 8 odd overs.
Why did Lee not bowl?
Is he injured or was Ponting preserving him already?
Or maybe it’s the over rates again and Watson goes through his overs faster. Nagpur anyone?
You did your role in Sri Lanka and South Africa, but because we feel that we don’t make enough stupid decisions, we have decided to drop you from the series against Australia. We have a point too, what if you make good runs against them? How will we justify our dropping you then?
See, we want you to play in tough conditions where the pitches are slow, chasing is impossible or the other extreme, where the bounce is enough to make some of your team-mates whine. It’s easy to drop you then, you see.
We regret to inform you that we have completely decided to ignore the fact that you top scored against Pakistan. Instead that is our crux in blaming you that you couldn’t take us across the finishing line. You should have done it, not the horde of finishers we have in the Dhoni, Raina, Yusuf and Kohli. They are all young, how will they learn. You on the other hand are not. It’s the sad truth my friend. Our selections aren’t based on performances, only on age. Except Sachin, you know, because he’s Sachin.
If its any consolation, you’ll be the first name down in the book if we tour South Africa or New Zealand circa 2002. Because like we said, we love having a reason to drop you.
With best wishes,
Kris Srikkanth and his merry band of nitwits
P.S: Just to make you feel better, we have also sacked Venki and Robin, you guys played together a lot, maybe you can talk to them?
