Takeaway from the Ind-Aus match
Ponting’s century in the face of all the criticism that he has had to take in lately. Can not take away the fact that it was a brilliant innings on a testing track.
Defiant Aussie nature – the way Lee was bleeding after that ball hit his eye, I thought he wouldn’t come back, but he was back after 2 overs and bowling with fire.
Sensible batting by Yuvi and Raina – After Dhoni got out, I thought it was all over. ANOTHER collapse looked imminent. But thanks to Yuvi and Raina, who batted sensible without taking any undue risks which made sure we got thorough.
Viru, Kohli and Dhoni gave away their wickets on stupid stroke play. Dhoni should have taken a cue from his Aussie counterpart and played a more responsible innings.
Gambhir, well I give him benefit of doubt. It was more of Yuvi’s fault. But he did his job well. All’s well that ends well.
And the GOD! It was GOOD to see GOD bowl after a long long time! Bowl more often sir. We can not get enough of you!
