Sehwag, Dilshan, Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Dirk
I rest my case.
Add to that the T&T spin trio and Amit Mishra, Darren Ganga, Gambhir, Owais Shah and Darren Bravo, and two good hitters in the Dinesh and Denesh. See, even the keepers are almost identical, in name and style.
I don’t know about everyone, but I think these are the two most exciting teams of the tournament.
If Delhi can just continue on the momentum they have built up since they lost to Victoria, we might well be on that course. Now that Victoria have lost to the Cobras, it has become even tougher for Delhi, and they’ll need to win against Bangalore today and against the Cobras, and then hope the net run rate is also good enough.
We can almost be assured that T&T will go through to the semi’s so I’m glad I’d thrown my weight behind them in the first place. I cannot find words to describe Pollard yesterday. The best I heard around was “awesomesauce”, which is pretty awesomesauce in itself.
Sehwag seems to be on quite a rampage right now.
Trinidad and Tobago are my new favourite side for this Champions League.
This was their first match I saw, and that also the highlights. But man, there was some sort of manic energy about the way they played. To say they outplayed Somerset would be incorrect, it was like Somerset never managed to come on to the field at all.
T20 is about exciting cricket, and Trinidad and Tobago serve it up in huge doses. I loved the fact that they played 3 spinners. And of all differing varieties. Wonder if they are scheduled to play in Delhi in the next stage. That could be a huge boon and a curse for them. Their batsmen seem to want to beat the leather out of every ball bowled, and the Kotla doesn’t really help those who do that. Of course, their offie, leggie, and chinaman could have a ball out there.
The NSW side seems like the Blue Australians. The colours have changed, the stupid machine still works.
I desperately want Gilchrist around for the next stage, and Laxman. So they’ll have to stop a rampant T&T side tomorrow. We shall see.
By the way, didn’t Dinesh Karthik just teach Mendis a good tight lesson. I was so hoping for another Yuvraj.
Maybe another day, some other poor bowler.
One question, did Jayawardene keep wickets today?
