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.

So I conveniently disappeared after wishing New Zealand into the finals of the Champions Trophy.

I know the Australians looked strapping in their uber-cool white jackets, and I know I couldn’t bother to give credit to them for defending their title. Sorry guys, if you hadn’t won so much in the first place, I wouldn’t be like this.

I know the Australians won it, but if you ask me this was Pakistan’s tournament for the taking. Over-confidence did them in. But that’s what the tournament was. Except for the finals probably, most of the results were complete reversals of the expected. England beat the Lankans and the Saffers. Are you telling me someone expected that?

That whole match-fixing fiasco in Pakistan is a disgrace. Come on, it’s one thing blaming India for everything wrong, but paying off Australian umpires is ridiculous.

So the world has moved from South Africa to India, to the Champions (again) League.

Originality is not the strong point it seems in the cricketing market-minds.

It’s so hard that writing “Champions League live streaming” gets me flooded with football links. Come on guys, it’s hard enough finding a link in any case.

Anyway in the Champions League, JP Duminy was so damn awesome yesterday. It was breathless stuff. I just saw the highlights. I can’t really bother trying hard enough to watch each of these gazzilion matches coming up. So I’m going to let the others get excited and catch the good bits on highlights.

Hope the League throws up a lot of excitement. Not like today’s Delhi and Victoria, when I was really hoping Sehwag would blast his way back.

The Indians seem to be in the middle of an injury crisis.

Losing Sehwag obviously hurt, losing Yuvraj so close to the tournament hurts even more I bet.

This should completely turn over all the strategies Dhoni might have come up with till now.

Of course, Dhoni has generally been at his best when hopes have been low. So, while chances of India going too much ahead in the tournament seem to be really receding what with the terrible fielding and mediocre bowling, watch out for that magical wand of Dhoni’s. And what Tendulkar calls his bat :p

I saw Pakistan’s bowling today, and if that Centurion pitch on Saturday has something in it for the seamers, India should really not take Pakistan lightly. That kid Aamer was absolutely fantastic, it actually felt like watching Akram in his prime. Forget that it was against the West Indies, this was high quality stuff.

It seems to be that age-old theory true again : India’s batting against the Pakistan bowling.
