Kaif

Notice a lot of calls for MK's head. Give the guy a break, guys -- he came in, played to the situation, was cruising along when the rest of his mates decided they weren't interested. Imagine the fun if he had played a shot too many and gotten out -- we would have been in duck soup by now. If you notice his play, at one point he realized someone needed to bat through, not let the Kiwis through at both ends. Strange that he is the one we are trashing, not all those blokes who came and tried to pick out the silliest way to get out to

  • And MK is reaping rewards now for his stay at the crease

  • Absolutely true, Prem.....

  • Do they really believe AGarkar to be a better bat than Pathan?! Quite beats me... Or that has something to do with Ganguly's preference for his favourites?

  • Silly shot by Agarkar tells the same story, if both sides play mad game, we will end up in DuckSoup. But Prem, i think Kaif could have shown extra class by making more singles by showing better placement in shots. Have to mention Azhar's batting here, talking about some gaps to get more singles.

  • nwo that's another stupidity, not sending pathan ahead of agarkar, and why? simply because agarkar is senior i guess

  • Prem, i must admit i was one of the folks who really didnt think too highly of Kaif's batting and the fact that we dont really need 2 guys in the Dravid mould in the ODI team. But has shown his true value today, Hats off.

  • Kaif slowed down way too much...he could have showed a bit more initiative atleast when Rao was struggling.

  • I agree with Prem. Without Kaif at the crease, we wouldnt have reached 250 also. I think with 3 overs to go and the score at 258, we should reach atleast 275.

    Question is, IS IT ENOUGH?

    I know according to the start we received today, 300 would have been a par score. But, with the pitch giving help to the spinners (as was seen by Vettori), this should be a good score. Prem, your thoughts?

  • mohd iqbal, didnt' realise you'd said the same thing - wonder what pathan will have to do to convince his captain of his merit

    By Blogger Sujata, at 06:55  

  • simple Sujata, sign up for Ganguly's player management company or agent!

    By Blogger mohd iqbal, at 06:57  

  • guys, thats why i said it should be dhoni/pathan/yadav not dhoni/yadav/agarkar/pathan.

    I would vote for SG/VS/MK/Dhoni/Pathan/RD/Yadav/Agarkar/VR......

    By Blogger howzzatt, at 06:58  

  • Mohdiqbal - or flatter dalmiya and get in the boys club

    will kaif make a 100 i wonder?

    By Blogger Sujata, at 06:59  

  • Shoud Irfan/Kaif think about it ? Or play naturally, socre as many as they can

    By Blogger howzzatt, at 07:02  

  • sujata, exactly...!in fact, thats one reason i would like Ganguly to go away as captain at least, having his coeterie of players - for whatever reasons...

    By Blogger mohd iqbal, at 07:03  

  • may be they should sub nehra with Harbhajan, he can help Kaif score the century...but thats always the way India thinks I suppose...

    By Blogger mohd iqbal, at 07:04  

  • i used to be a die hard Ganguly fan, btu he's outlived his purpose..

    kaif on 93 and nehra on strike, whats the bet nehra will let kaif come back on strike?

    By Blogger Sujata, at 07:06  

  • and who told nehra to do that when kaif is on 94 and could still have 2 deliveries to try and make 100...i tell you

    By Blogger Sujata, at 07:08  

  • who asked nehra to play that kind of shot..really fast bolwres are from some diferent breed...what a poor thinking and what a waste..

    By Blogger Ravi Agrawal, at 07:09  

  • by a streak of coincidence its the same score india chased vs NZ-

    anyway, my take is india will win this one.

    By Blogger Sujata, at 07:09  

  • Not bad guys. If Dhoni wasn't given out - we might have gotten another 20 runs. But 276 is a very defendable total. I am with Sujata. India will win this match.

  • i don't think kaif should have taken the single in the first place.

    By Blogger Ashok, at 07:17  

  • The call for his head was started by Prem !
