India-Pak Fifth ODI: India Grilled

India was thrashed by Pak. Shahid Afridi was at his best. Throwing his bat at all the juicy deliveries being sent down, Afridi piled on a rock solid 102. Even I could have batted at the other end! Indian bowlers were so badly demoralized.

Balaji was celebrating the new year by serving Afridi pongal like deliveries. Dravid soon decided to serve Afridi a full course meal by bringing in Kumble whose full tosses and leg breaks served up like bissibela bath only to be promptly slammed across the fence. It was a battle of sambar, pongal and bissibela bath vs raw halal beef.

Lets hope the last one day match is more balanced and not like a trip to the slaughter house. I hope India at least has a plan for Shahid-bhai, though this might turn out to be a match for Razzack who has looked very dangerous but hasn’t fired in a big way.
