    Theory going around in my office (from a couple who watched the game there live and many who watched the last over fully unlike me) is that someone (Virat or Ashwin) told Pandya with Mustafizur at earshot that they should Mankad if the guy backs up. Pretty street smart thinking ftw there if true.


    EDIT: See that Joe and Hendrix have already made the point. Still awesome by Kohli and Ashwin..

Love that Sehwag can shut up fast bowlers' idiocy even without a bat in hand.
    Must have missed this segment.. Thank you Sehwag. This is your god Black_Warrior. What a **** he is.

    This also got me thinking. Does the non-striker have to wear pads? Should've taken them off or worn wicket keeping pads/green bits of cardboard so you can at least run faster.

If so, this wasn't a choke.
    Yeah it's an absolutely ridiculous theory.

    Bangladesh choking from a winning position is not something new.

    So many comments on the internet too about it. They are so dumb. If it was a fix it was the most risky fix ever. Absolutely no guarantee those shots go to the fielder off the full toss, and more importantly, that the fielder catches it. Jadeja's catch was not a super simple one.

    You can't manufacture that result to that level of detail..
    Heh, quite. The margin for error was literally non existent if it was a fix, to which they replied "they're professionals, they could do it easily"

    They must really be the worst 'professional' fixers then if half the people recognize that the match is fixed.

    They got into trouble when Mushfiqur holed out. It meant Mahmudullah couldn't just look for the single for the tie and trust the No. 10 to finish it on the last ball.

    Exactly. You get a full toss when that equation presents itself you definitely try to finish the game right there and then.

    Get a full toss in that situation you can just gap it for 2 easily. Can bisect Dhawan and Jadeja fairly comfortably, get 2 and win game.

    The more I think about the Mahmudullah shot, the more I think 'choke' isn't really the right word. It's a word used to describe an instance where the pressure of the situation adversely affects a player's decisions, but if anything Mahmudullah almost reverse-choked by failing to actually take into account the situation of the game and the enormity of the moment. When Mahmudullah gets a knee high full toss in a T20 game, he tries to deposit it for six, so he batted in his bubble and instinctively did it then too. A bit more 'choking' and he might have actually tried to pick up one or two.

    Mushfiqur choked though. Wasn't even a good shot selection outside the situation.

    Mushfiqur almost got himself run out 2 times (or was it once), then hit a four, then got out. If he had not hit that four, I wouldn't mind mind some one thinking there was a fixing angle which could be ascertained with an investigation. However, that four meant any theory of a fix would be absurd. Mushfiqur just was hyper from a few balls before that final choke shot letting the situation get to him.
