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?

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.
