The good, the bad and the funny

The Good:
- Bangladesh winning against Zimbabwe...cricket makes sense again
-Australia losing...BAHAHAHAHAHA
-Ashraful scoring 63 at long last! But Tamim overshadowing his return to the score board with a 80 was a thousand times better
-Enamul Haque Jnr continuing to take wickets
-Not having to watch Yuvraj's jiggly belly because of errands

The Bad:
-Hamilton scoring more than Tamim. (I am not impressed)
-India winning
-Yuvraj Singh scoring 78
-Adopted son Mushfiq scoring only 4
-Bangladesh's middle order collapsing
-Not getting to watch Moises bowl because of errands

The Funny:
-Australian bowlers
-Chigumbura going for 28 runs in his 4 overs
-Moises replacing Brett Lee. The Oz selectors really should try their hand at comedy
-Ricky Ponting giving the ball to Adam Voges and then Adam Voges giving 13 runs in one over
-Yuvraj Singh giving his wicket to Moises
-Moises looking more surprised than elated with his maiden ODI wicket. I had a similar expression

It didn't go over the ropes? What does that mean?

"It didn't go over the ropes? What does that mean?"

Ponting has made some dubious decisions yesterday not bowling Watson and getting Moises and Voges on when must he have looked for wickets! Maybe Ponting also thought that Moises was Lee's replacement.

and why was India winning Bad? isn't that to happen for the Good to happen?

I am no fan of Yuvraj but he played really well yesterday and the way he was hitting the ball the sound of the ball making contact with the bat could be heard in such a huge and noisy crowd as well! :)

straight point said...

actually they are into comedy for sometime bit of late its becoming more glaring... for example they think watson is an all rounder...

WTF happened to Shaun Tait? That guy was just fuckin' express, maaan!

Purna said...

Adi, I am actually not an Indian supporter. Also, they are above SA in ODI's right now :P.
When does Ponting not make a dubious decision?! But the amazing thing is, he believes in every one of them!
You saw the game at the stadium? Sigh!

Baiju, thanks! and welcome :)

SP, they should be in a stage somewhere.

CT, he didn't get a central contract. That's right. LOL.

Thiru Cumaran said...

He initially didn't get a CC but after Symmo's contract was torn up, Tait got a CC! :)

I don't know what is going on with the Aussie selectors - our bowlers are, as Purna said, giving of mirth (and she forgot, but she meant to add "with the exception of the invincible Nathan Hauritz") and so, as yet another one of them boards a plane in India for the land Down Under they call up - NOT Stuey Clarke, because that would make sense - but some guy from Victoria that no one has heard of.

I think they're trying their hand at comedy already.

Sorry for the deletion - I didn't preview and so, somehow, wrote "sennse". I couldn't let the world think I'm illiterate ... that's for Graeme Swann, not me.

Aditya said...

Yes, I did watch it in the stadium and the view was pleasantly good the Kotla is a really smallish stadium
and the crowd was brilliant :)

Btw you should support India so that they win big 6-1 or 5-2 so that Aus goes below SA in the rankings!

Sid, "with the exception of the invincible Hauritz".

Adi, don't make me jealous.
