Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again.

With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…
