Moody blues

Tom Moody, in the Hindu, with his take on how the series has gone.
It is a rule of sport that whenever a team has the run of the game — whatever the sport — it gathers a momentum that takes some stopping. That is exactly what has happened to the Indian team throughout this series. That first match in Nagpur gave them a high that they never really came off.
Had those initial gambits of sending in a pinch hitter, and encouraging batsmen to hit big shots, not succeeded, I doubt whether the experimentation within the Indian team would have been quite as intense.
However, those risks paid off handsomely, and we must take stock of our game in light of the hectic cricket season ahead. The Indians, too, will take on an in-form South African squad, but they are playing with great confidence at the moment and backing their abilities to the hilt.

  • feel really sorry for mr. sore moody, but such is the way of cricket, one moment you win a tournament and the other you are swept under the carpet
