Sree! Harbhajan had taken him off just when he was finding his length.
FFS Rahane falls for 84 to a wrong decision. Dartbhajan the bowler.
And now Rohit gifts his wicket to Dartbhajan.
Darth Bhajan. That's how I read it. Wizard, though, seems to have finally run out of magic.
Vijay back in contention? Anything Vijay can do, Jaffa and Ronnie can do better.
"Talent is nothing without opportunity"
"You're not remembered for aiming at the target, but hitting it"
Twenty20 used to be boring.
Sidhu says "Tendulkar is dominating. Shredding them to smithereens"- but the scorecard suggests otherwise.
Rest of India actually have a stronger bowling attack. Two former India regulars, a current India regular, someone who somehow got into Indian selections every now and then (weak link) and someone who set the Ranji charts on fire. Compare that with Mumbai who have two bowlers simply not good enough, and two filler bowlers, in their group of six- and the other two strike bowlers are just average.
Sachin tons up. Good innings.
Dhawal Kulkarni = muppet
Absolute stupidity. What was the need to give Ojha a wicket at all? Just turn the strike over to Sachin, who would have done the needful.
Two points to note- if Rest of India wins, or even pinches the lead, it's because they used five proper bowlers (largely) of significant experience. None of those bowlers were particularly good, and young Ishwar Pandey was comprehensively better than the seniors, and risked wearing out.
Harbhajan seems to underbowl himself when he's captain. He's deliberately kept away when Tendulkar is in form.
One more muppet- Javed Khan throws his wicket away to Harbhajan with a poor stroke and Mithun takes the catch. This is not a premiership bottom five.
Ah Sachin says Not out on 140. Ojha picks up 3 wickets despite being ordinary really and Sachin gave him the treatment on a few occasions.
ROI have won this now on First innings.
Already Mumbai have snared a wicket with Nayar taking a breath-taking catch to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan in the first over by Dhawal Kulkarni. Nayar could have had another had he not overstepped and Ankeet Chavan not dropped the catch.
If Nayar can get runs on seaming wickets (the same where he can scalp a few), he can be a handful for India.
Don't want Vijay and Raina succeeding a second time.
