Jatman: Never tell a Sri Lankan to bowl a super over

by Gaurav Sethi

Mendis and Murali, arguably both Sri Lankans, have both bowled super overs – they both lost it for their teams. Captain Raina disagreed, throwing that “cricket is a team sport, and we collectively lost it” logic. Murali disagreed with Raina taking complete credit for the defeat.

When contacted Mendis claimed he did not remember playing in the IPL, leave alone bowling a super over.

Jatman had an altogether different take – appears when the Daredevils hand Dilshan or Maharoof the ball, they are also told, “Do anything, but don’t bowl a super over”

No doubt like the IPL, that’s a good joke, but usually the batsman has the last laugh. Dilshan’s last over was anything but super and went for 6, 6, 6, though not in that order – it was anarchy.

As for Maharoof, like Dilshan, he too has been dropped to concentrate on not bowling a ‘super over’.

Poor Murali.. It was just bad idea of bowling a spinner

Dunno Sujan, with Murali I thot it was a good idea. With Mendis, a little off, that was Yusuf Pathan facing up.
