The earnest Hosts takes Revenge in T20

Posted by seshdotcom on June 21, 2008

The West Indies cricket team as i said in the Previous Post really deserved the Victory in the Test Series..Yesterday i tuned on to Ten Sports and was eagerly waiting for the T20 match between West Indies and Australia..And because of the Rain Gods the match was delayed and the 20 over match was delayed and it was announced to the Unquiet crowd that the 20 over match was reduced to 11 overs to both the teams after the rain has undoubtedly stopped..And my Insomnia paid off the match set off after that it was a match with a Mixture of Slogging and beating the batsman with nagging line and suddenly the Oppositions gains an Upper Hand it was a Sort of Cliffhanger Game it would go either way it was Early Morning 1:45 I Enjoyed each and every Moment of the game which i guess only some 0.0000000004% of India’s Population would have watched…

And coming to the Match——–

Australians Batted first and the openers Ronchi and the IPL Hero Marsh started the Innings Positively and marsh Stamped his Authority in the Caribbean with a Huge hit straight down the Ground of Taylors Bowling..And taylor was Clobbered by Ronchi for 14 runs in his first three balls of the Second over(Imagine if you were watching this sort of match at 2.00 a.m) and Ronchi was soon dismissed by Roach and after that the wickets were falling at regular intervals but the Caribbean were not able to control the inflation of runs..And Watson Played his role after coming directly from the Victorious Rajasthan team and finally Australia Scored 97 in their 11 Overs(Thanks to the Splendid innings by Shaun marsh and Luke Ronchi which set up the Platform for the West Indies)

The West Indies chase—-

It was early early morning and Marshall and perkins opened the batting and an Howling thing happened Marshall who was striking the ball Clean and Strong in the Frank worell Trophy picked up Lee and he Pulled him into the Stands..Would you believe it the World’s fastest Bowler steaming in at around 150 Kmph was Pulled off by a Debutant in his very first delivery in a International match..That actually did a Lot to the Confidence of the West Indies team who were Ruling the Cricket from 1975-1983..And then Marshall didn’t let off the crowd who were waiting to see their hero to perform he took the ONCE IN A GENERATION BOWLER Mitchell Johnson to the Cleaners in the Second over of the Match after that perkins also Joined the Party and they both were making a Australians demoralised ..But Marshall the Hero of the match departed for 36(15) because of a Run Out(A Very Good effort by Watson of his own Bowling)when the score was 53..And then it was left to the King of Calypso -Bravo came to the Crease and Played a Blitz which set up a Victory for the West Indians..(A very Good Effort)

The Heads and Tails of Daniel Vettori-Once in a Generation Bowler

Posted by seshdotcom on April 11, 2008

The Audacious VettoriWho is this Guy Daniel!!!:Daniel Vettori one of the greatest left arm Spinners of all time has made an Huge impingement in the recent ICC Rankings which took him and limned him to the World as one of the Greatest ODI Bowler of all time.Apart from his Bowling his Batting is also remarkable he has made some Memorable knocks in the other Part of the Coin which has taken his batting average nearly to 28.He has also got two test centuries to his name and he is also the youngest player to represent New Zealand in Test Cricket.

The Golden arm: You cannot hit Daniel Straight down the ground or Out of the Park whenever You like he is not a Sort of Buffet Bowler to hit Mercilessly he is a versatile bowler who doesn’t spin the ball much like Warne or Murali but the variation in flight has got many batsman baloon the ball in the air,Stumped,Caught and Bowled due to leading edge and Clean bowled.He is a Subtle bowler who likes to bowl in Slog overs where the batsman will be hitting the ball as if possessed by a berserk.

Daniel took the captaincy from the Legend Stephen Fleming in the T20 World cup in South Africa and till then he has done some decent work with respect to captaincy winning some crunch matches such as the T20 World cup match against India

The Bludgeoning Arm:

Coming to his batting he is a useful batsman down the order who can make some Surprise knock at important times one knock which i can say Unforgettable is the one he played in Champions Trophy against Australia he came seven down and scored 83 but that eventually took New Zealand out of a Abject Display and posted a decent score but New Zealand lost the Semi Final.And he has also two test centuries to his name one against Pakistan and another one against Zimbabwe and he had less conversion rate from 50-100 he has got numerous fifties in his Test Career.

And arguably he is one of the Top cricketers in that elite panel now so there is nothing wrong in calling Daniel as a Once in a Generation Bowler
