MI ki Ma ki

by Gaurav Sethi

Sharma to Nayar, OUT, bowled him, and Mumbai are losing the plot! Rohit keeps it flat on middle and leg, Nayar moves across to sweep and misses it, the ball doesn't turn that much and hits leg stump
AM Nayar b Sharma 1 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00
Sharma to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, another one bites the dust! Rohit tosses it just a tad short outside off, Harbhajan plays a cheeky sweep to try and beat short fine leg but bottom-edges onto the stumps
Harbhajan Singh b Sharma 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Sharma to Duminy, OUT, and he's got it! Rohit Sharma gets three in three! He fires down the leg stumps, no air whatsoever, Duminy moves back and tries to play it over square leg but gets a thin inside edge which Gilchrist, smartly anticipating, holds onto as he moves across
JP Duminy c Gilchrist b Sharma 52 (48b 7x4 0x6) SR: 108.33
Sharma to Tiwary, OUT, simple stumping! Rohit proposes, Tiwary accepts, but he's a mile away from the ball as it breaks away from the stumps and an ecstatic Gilchrist takes care of the rest
SS Tiwary st Gilchrist b Sharma 3 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

They truly played like Banjos today - as in banjo, teri maa ki !! Any team with less than 4 batsmen will struggle in this tournament. MI have exactly 3 batsmen - SRT, SJ and JPD. They need to find a 4th in a hurry, or reconcile to 7th place. Anyone still pressing that "SRT for Team India T20 World Cup" campaign? Seriously, he's the last thing team India needs at the top of the order. Also, he's a baaaaaad captain.

Hi Gaurav,
funny you should mention that bit abt "top of the order" Beyond me why srt opens in odis, if nuthin else it will screw the sehwag-gambhir test opening.

SRT opens in ODIs because he wants to. No other reason. The last team management to ask him not to open in ODIs was Chappell-Dravid, and we all know about that. Problem with Sachin is he has the ear of the powers that be like no one else in the team, before or since. He's the only one that can call up Pawar and Pawar will take his call. Why do you think Harbhajan is in the team for the T20 WC, even though Ojha is clearly the better spinner for the format, and Jakati and Chawla and Mishra have all staked their claims for the second spinner spot. Harbhajan is SRT's left nut, thats why. I love Sachin the player - with a bat in hand and injury free, he is truly Godlike on the field, but Sachin the man leaves a lot to be desired.
