If Sreesanth continues like this, there will be another slapping incident. Hayden just laughed him away after getting out, but, I fear that one day Yuvraj is gonna clobber him if he continues bowling like this.
I think the captaincy of Sachin was nothing great - right through the tournament. When MI field - they keep running after the ball and when they bat, the ball goes straight to a fielder.
Yesterday when the medium pace stuff was stifling the Delhi batsman, Sachin gets Bhajji (the most useless and overrated spinner in India) to bowl and the pressure lifts. Duminy bowled much better than Bhajji yesterday. Also Sachin getting himself on was a brilliant master-stroke for the DD. All know he bowls short when he is warming up and that thing happened and he got licked.
And why is Pinal Shah (I would prefer a "e" in his name) still there ? The world can see he can't bat. And then opening with Duminy and dropping Jayasaurya for a do or die match ?
MI deserved to loose the way they did.
I have switched loyalties since yesterday.
MI need a better skipper - get Polly Kaka back as skipper.
