Same true for lot of people including me. I too swiched off the TV and just checking the scores. Truely a remarkable win. We need to recover quickly in our batting department otherwise same case may not be there in all the matches.
Now they are done with that work, now thjey should speed up or exactly the same will happen what you mentioned. we have few good strikers but in Sa the pitch is not like go and explode, you need few balls to settle before going for big hits.
SRT's 24 off 44 balls should be an embarrassment to the guy. I mean he's the highest run scorer in the game, and this kind of pathetic batting is unfit for him. This is very clearly a 260+ wicket, so anything less and they will easily win. And Dhoni will blindly blame our bowling, ignoring the fact that our batting sucked.
yeah a guy of his calibre should be more comfortable in the middle than this. That too after getting failed miserably in last few innings.
Dhoni is a lucky captain because somehow we are bouncing back in the series after loosing so many matches and he is able to save his face. Otherwise he would be struggling for his place in the team.
Agree. MSD's batting has been on the decline. And it's when we lose that we realize how vulnerable his captaincy is. He's like Ponting, most of his wins are achieved due to individual player performances than due to shrewed strategies.
SRT was completely out of touch. But kohli is in good touch and he is kind of player who can score quickly after settling down. But les see if these two can change something although I don't have any hope on these two.
If you see the pitch report it was not at all that bad to crumbled down to a score like 130. Even today they mentioned that the pitch is quite comfortable for batting.
I think in test it was just some individual performance because of which we saved our face. Majority of the players have struggled there. And also we have significant different team in test and ODI.
