First Five In A Jiffy




Cricket

Cricket

The opening match between the co-host nations, India and Bangladesh began with great expectations. From five overs, I just would construe how the match would go further.

14.00 struck the clock, in the hot sun came our players, rather was brought by the kids in the white, the respective national anthems were sung and the match began!

The Toss:

Bangladesh won the toss and chose to field, this would be not so wise decision, I feel. This is because the recent comments regarding the Indian team was that it was fielding (ly) challenged!

Knowing this fact, a prudent captain would not allow the powerful strikers to come first and make wonders with the willows.

Over 1:

Typical Sehwag! A four churned the spirits of the Indians; the Mexican effect was seen at the stadium. Sehwag’s run-rate seemed very impressive and reliable. His boundaries made millions of fans breathe with a sigh of relief.

Sachin seems little (rather very much) stressed up. His run-rate is just gaining little warmth slowly. May be it would take time to turn into red from the ambers.

Over 2:

Another few boundaries out here by Viru, the bowler Rubel would soon become one rebel. Strikers are chafing and sharpening their skills from his deliveries. The run-rate of Viru was 18 (9), just 200% delivery rate, spell bounding!

Over 3:

It was little lethargic when paralleled with the initial ones, they were more like a rapid-fire rounds in quizzes.  No balls fetched few undesired runs from Bangladesh.

Over 4:

Few no-runs, one-runs the over ended. The fielders have become more cautious and strengthened their army.

With a run-rate of 5.89, 70% chance of winning the match, no wickets lost, will the best ever opening-pair lead the team to glory? Yes, India is winning this match, undoubtedly.

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
