The Saving Private "Rain"

I happened to catch India Australia one day in KL. Mr. Rain saved India. Last time India and Australia met was in Netherlands, the match was right royally washed out. BCCI trying to sell cricket - it reminds me the lines "kotum mazai kAlam uppu vika ponen". I like to meet the idiots who meticulously schedule cricket matches during rain.It is high to have a weather department in ICC.

Indian bowling seems to have improved when compared to the last game. Previous game, I will not call the bowling as "Pathetic" why? because that word would be a compliment then. I have no words to describe the bowling effort in previous game. Just like the bowlers themselves, I am yet figure out the Indian bowling schema our million dollar coach has devised. Best plan would be start from over number 15. Mr. Big Ricky Mouth Ponting AKA preacher who preaches to the world about on field behavior, misbehaved with the umpire and was sternly warned by his management. He was fined some match fee, I need to say this, if it had been an Indian player such incidents get him match suspensions.

Coming back to this game, bowling seems to have improved a little. Harbajan bowled quite well to keep the Aussies down. Sachin started of little shaky, Mcgrath hit him on the helmet once, Sachin lifted him over Long on , wonderful match was on cards, however Mr. Varuna played the Grinch and destroyed concentration, under such drastically changing conditions even players like Dravid had to do something out of fashion, with an asking rate of around 7 runs per over Dravid had to charge and played a loose shot on the off and was caught in covers, this is where the popular Indian fashion parade began. Queenslander Johnson pinned Indians with some fantastic bowling. Kapil mentioned that Australia needed only about 5 to 7 more overs to wipe India out. By the way Irfan and Yuvarj made a short trip to the center, their game count increased by 1. Local says KL is known for night time rains. and it is always bright during the day time. Why not play during day time?

Filtered idiots who created such a D/N schedule has to take some responsibility here.

Good weekend.
