Gayi Bhanns panni mein. NZ won of the last ball. Giving Yuvraj Singh the second last over of the match. I don't know, I think it should have been given to Ishant Sharma. I know Yuvraj is good but still T20 is a different game altogether.

Irfan bowled quite well IMO. Irfan is a better batsmen. Though his bowling has to be consistent. Coming to todays match. I thought we might pull it off, but yet again McCullum. Our batting was quite poor and somehow bowlers didnt have firepower to take wickets. Hope this doesnt affect much before the One dayers.

Excellently lost match! Irfan luckily clicked but few bowling changes were too ambitious. May be Dhoni was thinking about his next endorsement.

Few observations of mine.
*Kiwiz love to play in square,it is their natural game plan due to ground's situation there which are oval type.Just check how many runs they scored in square area!
*NZ are inventors of 20-20,If Mahi was smart inuf he could have opted to go with a spinner in first over itself,remember Dipak Patel.It was interesting to see how they struggled against Bhajji,that gave inuf clue that it was an opportunity missed not to give a ball to spinner in earlier overs.
*Mahi's keeping was poor in my opinion,atleast 3 boundries scored when ball clicked the bat and ball went passed to his left hand,better he watches old video of Jeffry Dujon of W.I.
*Bowling is 20-20 is a diff game plan,ball full near the toe of batsman and thats what Kiwiz are doing,not a single short ball and what we did?Stop saying Irfan as a good bowler,he forgot how to ball to be honest.25 runs in his first 2 overs almost.
*Last but not the least.....wear old color jersy again.

Default 2 Tests at Crossroads on Day 4

Day 5:

Test 1: South Africa require another 276 runs with 8 wickets remaining in the scheduled 98 overs.

Test 2: England trail by 143 runs with 10 wickets remaining. They have to make more than 143 runs the scheduled 90 overs.


Predictions?


Mine:
Test 1: SA will get 276, make 454 in 4th innings, win Test & make history one more time.
Tets 2: ENG will be bowled out. WI will get the remaining runs and take unassailable in the series.

I remember once he tried singing a song in the extra innings. That was pathetic .. If he repeats the same things in this show then... God bless 'Jhalak Dhikhla Ja'

Is it a dance show? or a singing contest?

Either ways... has he lost it?? What is an ex cricketer doing there??

What next Bappi Lahiri as cricket commentator?

Somebody said on Cricinfo: "Three blokes on debut and one who has played five tests. Aussies win this test on SA soil, it is as one of the gutsiest wins in years for the Australian side."

Yeah. Im following Australian cricket for the past 16 years. Never seen such an inexperienced team. Marcus North, Peter Siddle, Philip Hughes, Ben Hilfenhaus, Andrew McDonald, Brad Haddin. Few of the old boys will be back - Lee, Symonds, Clark, Shaun Marsh

It will take some time to start the Aussie juggernaut again, very difficult to fill in those shoes! Aussies needed this win badly. I hope they do well here onwards, I wish that, I want that.
