3rd T20I (N), India tour of New Zealand at Hamilton, Jan 29 2020 12:30 PM IST

Recommended Posts

Kohli would have picked harbhajan instead of Joginder sharma. After losing come out to justify that we went with senior pro in pressure situation.

 

He just lacks out of the box gambling to win an ICC tournament.

New Zealand were the morale winners with Kane Williamson compiling one of T-20 International crickets classics exhibiting supreme artistry or craftsmanship.With 2 to win of 4 balls after Taylor dispatched the 1st ball for 6 it was game,set and match for the Kiwis before Williamson was dismissed.There could never be a better illustration of how a game is never over till the final icing on the cake is placed.It proved that even after it is just a stroke away from the equivalent of a game,set and match in test cricket the fall of a crucial wicket can turn the course of game 360 degrees like the complete reversal in the plot of a movie.

India escaped with a virtual Houdini act in the last 4 deliveries but one must give credit to the great mental resilience of Mohammad Shami with his mastery of the short rising ball.The game also proved how much cricket is in the mind with the dismissal of Williamson.After executing some of the most dazzling boundaries of a great bowler like Bhumra he just failed to bang the final nail in the coffin or give it the finishing touch.

For the majority of the chase New Zealot seemed on course. Sad that after doing everything perfectly the Kiwis just buckled at the winning post ,as though they were destined to lose.

he is just having couple of off days combined with some really good batting. He has bowled very well this series and even Williamson has praised him

Still....it was unthinkable of anyone taking on Bumrah like this prior to this injury.

Kane Williamson played one of the great international test innings in a losing cause single handedly carrying the brunt of his teams chances on his shoulders.His sixes of Jadeja and successive boundaries of Bhumrah even off a yorker with the run rate over 11 displayed the wizardry of a magician .At every juncture when the clock was set back or game drifting Williamson majestically rallied his team.It was anybody's game but till he was present the Kiwis seemed to have the game in the bag.It shows one individual does not completely win a game.Ironic that it was Taylor and not Williamson who had virtually sealed victory after hard -fought game till then.

Obviously they were the morale winners.

 

The moral winner was, once again, Majid Khan, who was given this award in perpetuity by Mohammed Ali Jinnah.

I felt bad when Taylor got off the last ball. It would have been a deserved win for the Kiwis and kept the series alive.

Bhuvi was the Yorker expert way before shami or bumrah was. You are jerking shamis death overs last few matches but that's what bhuvi used to every game before his injury 

Bhuvi has never won t20 internationals in crunch situation like shami did today or boomrah has done on various occasion before. They are the 2 best bowlers we have.

But then if we meet them again in sfs of wc this October

I don't need to tell you guys:phehe:

Last year this time we were pasting them in other format ,got knocked out in that "other" format when we met them

This year we are thrashing them in this format,wish we go past them if we meet them in kos by any chance  in "this "format:phehe:

On a serious note,these bilaterals should be used to find the winning /right combination,our sole aim shouldn't be only about securing good rankings but give chances to guys like Pant,Saini,Dube,Samson(is he in t20 squad?)

Shami,Bumrah should be rested for the remainder of the series

Sharm karo bloody Indians, Dhonivirus kis kis ko lagao ge?

Dhoni's biggest service to Indian cricket could be infecting the minds of batsmen the world over with the take it to the end strategy.

Not the method because most teams want to finish the chase with a couple of overs to spare  but definetely the excuse of taking the game deep in a failed chase is a leaf out of Dhoni’s playbook

Nothing wrong in Dhoni's strategy,you cannot win the match sitting in the dressing room, you always have to give yourself a chance in the end.When he was young he could pull it off as he had ability to clear boundaries.As he got older he should have become more proactive but he became worse.

That works only if you are batting with the tail or something. In a chase you always have to target to finish it atleast a couple of overs before and then if things go south,adapt not the other way round.

Dhoni mostly batted with tail in those chases where he dragged them to last over.Dhoni lost lot of t20s using that approach but to me Dhoni was never a T20 player.

I like Kohli using Bumrah for super over.He is your best bowler and you back him to deliver everytime even on his offday.You win or lose with your best players either with bat or ball.

 

In Baseball terms you want your closer to close the match even after he blows few saves.

Yes. Remember the match with Rayudu or even in ODIs like the disgraceful game against England or the one at oval where he got booed 

Dhoni to me never had the game for T20s.He never was a t20 batsman, he tried to do his odi thing in T20s far too many times and lost matches for India.

That T20 game v Eng was pathetic. Dhoni was batting with his biryani supplier and yet refused easy singles due to his ego of thinking he could hit bid, he could not and the game was lost.
