Second ODI: Cool Victory!

Glad that India won in style. Hats off to Pak for putting up a fight. Dhoni is a great find. I hope Dada will continue to send this guy up the order. Dhoni and Viru at the crease is electrifying cricket. Man, that guy Viru, is like Kapil Dev on steriods.

Razack’s batting was very impressive. He is a master of improvisation and placement. Nehra was completely clueless about where to bowl to this guy. It was not that Nehra was bowling badly. This guy just had an answer for every kind of ball. In my opinion this guy is more dangerous than Afridi. He indulges in sensible hitting and is hard to keep in check.

Btw, can someone tell me what on earth is Agarkar doing in the team for the third one day! What happened to Dada’s pool of young fast bowlers — Bhandari, Munaf Patel, Gagandeep, etc.etc. Anyone can do better than Agarkar. I can’t imagine Agarkar bowling to Afridi is full flow. Agarkar has a strange knack of putting people in a “zone” where their free stroking skills simply come alive! God, I hope he doesn’t play in the third one day! Even an injured Balaji is a safer bet!
