There sure was a 'Foreign' hand in this one...

In a situation like that, I can't bowl a wide; not even if I badly wanted to! With 3 needed of the last ball, Fernando does it. No no, it doesn't end there... what should have been a regulation fielding off his own bowling goes through him for what you think is a regulation single. The Rajasthan Royals, quite obviously, go for the utterly non-existent second and Jayasuriya makes sure they make it...!

Shane Warne should be gifting away the MoM award to those two...! Kudos, I say! Mumbai Indians rock...

hmmmmmmm .... but but but results are results ... and now mumbai has thin chances of qualifying for the semis ... is sachin somewhere messing up the bowling allocation ... its heartening to say sachin is going wrong somewhere but just felt ... i felt this even when mumbai was winning ...
anyways lets hope chennai looses tomo ... tooo tough but yet ... hope gilchrist and rohit can do some magic ...

i don't know... but certainly his bowling allocation is not traditionally straightforward! i long to see Shaun Pollock bowling the last overs and time and again Sachin completes Shaun's quota by the 15th over!

Anyway, what is indeed nice to see is that Sachin is a lot more active as a captain and I see him taking brave decisions in the field. It just isn't working out...!

Wait and watch is all we can do...!

Pollock rarely used to bowl at the death even for SA. So it was always going to be a choice between Nehra and Fernando(Naam hi dilHARA hain toh Match toh harega hi na :)) . Fernando reallly disappointed. He should have closed the match by fielding of his own bowling and throwing at the stumps, but even jaya failed to collect the ball and we were robbed off a bowlout.
Anyways IPL is over for MI now... Chennai wins ... GO MOHALI GO now...
