Non choking Saffer

Recommended Posts

Lol Saffers are a mentally strong bunch apart from their world cup choking. They didnt keep hammering Aus and Eng in their own homes for 3 straight times until last year when they lost to Eng. Indians can learn a thing or two from them but we never do.

ABD played a similar knock against Gujarat in 2016 IPL Qualifier1. Infact ABD's knock was better...RCB were something 40/5 and had to chase 170.. ABD took them home. ABD also did play a very good knock in the 2015 WC SF...not his fault that rain played spoilsport. He also did score 3 50's in the last 4 games of season for RCB, which were virtual knockouts.

25 runs of 11 balls were scored by tailenders. He didn't have anything left to choke.

Very true. With his fortuitous two boundaries, Shardul shredded any chance of choking. If he had got out cheaply, Faf would have tightened up and would have been prone to choking.

He could have very well choked with 6 to get. He was the one who brought down the target of 43 to 23. He could have very well chocked in that over. Fauf could have choked any time. He didn't. No cold feet. He just stood and blasted the bowling.

Yes, super knock by Faf. To get his team so close to the target was itself an amazing achievement. Towards the end I thought maybe his luck will run out or the batsmen at the other end would get dismissed but that never happened.
