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)

What do you people say about this Match?????

The Aussies Outdo the Windies by 2-0 Win-But Shiv stands tall

Posted by seshdotcom on June 17, 2008

Review: Yesterday I was watching the Australia vs West Indies Match Thriller(3rd TEST MATCH of The Frank Worrell Trophy) Despite the fact that Scorecards and newspaper Scores will not tell you or give you any Clue to guess that it is a Thriller or a Close Shave it was a real thriller->Till Chanderpaul and Bravo were there one has to say that it was a Good Fightback put by the West Indies after the Aussies Posted a mammoth Total and set the Carribeans a Target of 475(475 has never been chased in the History of Test Cricket)..The West Indies started Positively with a Blitz from X.Marshall setting a Correct Platform for them.An Gayle with Occasional hits to the fence by his standing up tall and hitting through the Covers and Straight down the Ground but soon he was dismissed by Lee giving a easy catch to Lee of clarke..And later Chanderpaul and Marshall Marshalled the West Indies Innings and Casson came into the act and removed Marshall and then the extemporized Bravo came to the Crease and he straight away took Casson the Debut man to the Cleaners(not once or Twice he hit him 4 times) but Ricky’s Gamble with Bringing Casson to bowl the 83rd Over even though he conceded runs in the 81st Over PAID OFF..Bravo was Caught at Silly Point by Jacques of the bowling of Casson..After that it was a debacle Ramdin survived some stunning deliveries from Lee and J.Taylor gave him a Good Support..So the Fall of Chanderpaul(Actually the Decision created much of a Speculation in the Crowds Mind Because of the Height Factor)Signaled the West Indies Progression Back to the Pavilion..So Finally the result was Aussies Clinch the Series 2-0…So this was not the result I expected because the W.I were Playing well on the last day of the Match needing only 240 runs with 7 wkts in hand..And one more thing to be Witnessed in this Match is the Aussies were Butterfingers they dropped some 7-8 Catches with Mr.Katich Dropping 4 Catches and Symonds Missing a Run Out..It was a Funny Comment by Tony Cozier telling “HE Doesn’t follow the ball THE BALL FOLLOWS Mr.KATICH-PUT HIM IN DEEP FINE LEG GAYLE WILL PULL ONE BALL AND KATICH WILL DROP THAT– ha ha ha what a comment…”
