What would people have said had Bhaji bowled the over and gotten hit around?I remember people slamming Afridi for bowling Ajmal in the last over against Australia in the T20 semifinal,forgetting the fact that had the move paid off,people would say the exact opposite things.
If Nehra managed to defend it, and I only speak for myself, I would praise him depending on how he bowled that last over, or just be happy that we were lucky. If people want to jack off to Dhoni posters based on decisions that he makes on a hunch, they need to wake up and accept the fact that these decisions can also backfire. Never been a fan of 'extraordinary' decisions based on instincts. They may work or they may not. Not to be used unless its a hopeless situation imo.
