Is what I say… the media cooks up a storm… the batting is fragile… the captain lost his marbles… and what not.. !
Hey Hang on… its a ODI match we just lost by 3 wickets… we floundered… !
We learn from this and we become better.. !
Geez… some microanalysis does happen in our country.. ! Thank God Dhoni has a cool head on his shoulders. ! Phew..
I think the match was lost in the last 10 overs.
It is doesnt take any Rocket Science to figure that their bowling is stronger than ours yet… they were being roasted on the flat pitch.. ! If Steyn and Morkel can be carted like that then dont blame the Indian bowlers who tried gamely. Dont blame Dhoni for the last over to Nehra.
If anything its the batsmen who faulted.. from a seeming score of 370+ to 350 to 330 to 297 !!!!!! it was Hara kiri… and no one seemed to be keen to playing themselves in for even 2-3 balls.. Even Zaheer and Nehra went down swinging with Dhoni standing at the other end.. !
India lost the match here… Period !
I seriously think its time Dhoni considered a 5th bowler… as hard it might be… one batsman from yuvraj, yusuf, gambhir or kohli must sit out… ! :|
One more thing I would love watching Dhoni do was keeping the field in when the players are getting easy singles.. I understand him spreading it when someone is going hammer and tongs… but I dont understand that field when they are just milking the attack.
Yes… we lost a close match… !
We havent lost the cup .. ! Hang on .. ! Have faith and support the men in blue !!!!
