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?
What I want is humilation.
I want Stuart Broad to start crying. I want Dilshan to Dilscoop him for a six each ball in a over, the last one being a no-ball, and then another six off the free hit with another Dilscoop. Go Dilshan, go one up on Yuvraj. Anything to take the piss off Broad.
Mendis has an excellent first up record against most teams. You never know with England, he might end up taking a 10 for. If only Sangakkara would open with him. But records against England don’t count. Not worthy enough. And definitely not in odi’s.
Who remembers that match in England when England made 320 odd, and Sri Lanka chased it down in 38 overs. That would do, more abject the better.
“If you want sex but do not have someone to share it with, one option is to go solo whilst imagining you have a partner or a few partners who are as beautiful as you wish to imagine. No pillow talk and no hugging required … Just roll over and go to sleep.”
All from that by-now-famous-leaked dossier of Gary Kirsten’s.
At least the dossier’s frank about it. Going solo is as frank as it gets.
Mike Hussey needs to be taught about going solo :
“I have been away from home for four months so I reckon I’ve forgotten how to do it”
Achettup seems to have worked out Yuvraj’s injury at least.
Anyone venturing for Gambhir’s groin?
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.
