At 10.15 am I was flat out asleep when a “YAY!” from downstairs snapped me awake. That has to be the 7th wicket; I zap the TV on, there’s a score, SL 309, and a replay, Murali’s wicket, Bhajji’s got it – barely awake, I’m thinking, how many more has B***** taken?

Scorecard appears, just the gratis 10th wicket, that is booked for Bhajji; in addition to Dilshan’s freebie.

I’m downstairs, HUGs, it’s like I won the match. More HUGs on TV, and then all the replays; I’m well rested, clearheaded, this is turning out to be a No. 1 Sunday.

Through the day I have one thought, why did my body clock not wake me up before day’s play – how did it work for the 3rd day, when Jatman was on the verge? Am I becoming one of those record hungry Indians that make SMG proud?

I need to address these issues, or are they non-issues? Anyway, I did get a tennis ball game in. As I bowled to a left hand batsman, and one turned from outside leg to way beyond off – I thought of Bhajji’s lack of turn again. And then when I bowled some crap down leg, I had to ask myself, am I no better than Bhajji?

Some wickets do seem to be reserved for Bhajji isnt it? I dont see why Dhoni should have opened with Bhajji from one end yesterday. And this isnt the first time it has happened. Whenever there is a good chance of taking a wicket, Bhajji comes on to increase his tally.
