    There is no way in hell Bhajji would have turned down that over.

    He's a lot of things Harbhajan, but he's not one to shy away from trying to win the match.

    Haha yeah. Was so awesome to lipread Kohli (screamed the BC word in Hindi ) when he caught ABdeV and Harbhajan's usual eye-popping, fistpumping celebration. Don't think he'd turn down that responsibility.

    Didn't Kohli say the MC word ?

    Looked like just two syllables to me. It feels like the more appropriate one for the situation, as well.

    It was Harbhajan that said the BC one.

    Salman's post was deleted. I agree there's no need to spell anything out. FFS, there might be kids reading this. There's a 99.99% chance they'll still know exactly what we're talking about, but no need to make it explicit.

    Head down to a Surrey or Ireland game on a day where Gary Wilson's keeping. You can hear him from the boundary.

    Not sure what people are talking about. Bowling Nehra was the right move. Its standard to use a seamer in that situation.

    Fact is, if you weren't planning on using the guy there then he shouldn't have played. Dhoni was just using the resources given to him, and placing trust in a young bowler.

    In any case, its such a lottery at that stage its hard to place too much blame on anyone.

    Nehra could bowl some good yorkers at the death, taking Harbhajan apart would have been child's play.

    I'd have bowled Harby. But you're right it wasn't a horrible decision. The mistake was made in not saving Zak for the final over. Even if they needed just 6 off it, I'd have been confident with him bowling.
