It was scary watching, so you can imagine what it was like in the middle, very scary. Seems to me this was a reactive pitch – in reaction to the criticism some of the Kotla wickets got in the Champions League. That the Daredevils lost the only game I attended must have sealed the deal.

The way the ball jumped from a good length you’d think the groundsman had popped some Viagra in. Hard on the batsmen alright, but it’s funny when you see that none of the five dismissals were Viagra induced. There’s also an alternate theory which claims Kandamby’s bulk did the wicket in.

Let it be known, it was only after Kandamby had frolicked for nearly 30 minutes that the match was suspended. If I was Sanga, I would’ve declared the Lankan innings @83 for five.MSD seemed keen enough to play on this wicket, perhaps he should have come at one down.

Of course there are those people who will blame Sachin, and claim he knew about the wicket all along and that’s why he sat out – personally I think that’s irresponsible comment, and while Sachin is indeed the son of Indian cricket, he is no son of a pitch.
