Irfan Pathan defies logic to open and a Pak win

Ashok Dinda, Balaji, Manoj Tiwary and ………… Virender Sehwag left out – inexplicable.. yeh T20 hai boss –   After 11.1 Indians 74 for 5 -  the immensely talented Rohit Sharma, out for a  duck …………

Dhoni and the Coach Duncan Fletcher make awesome combination – they kept telling that they would play 7 batsman – 4 bowlers – for today’s game, you have 5 bowlers – and 3 spinners in that – who would bowl the slog – the friendly Pathan and out of form Zaheer……

To the disappointment of Indian cricket fans, Irfan Pathan walked out with Gautam Gambhir.  How Pathan is in the team itself is debatable – and he opens at the cost of Virender Sehwag ? Inexplicable !!! Aussies responded with another surprise – Glenn Maxwell bowled the first over.  It is rudimentary – you have 120 legitimate deliveries and boast of a line up of Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Ashwin and Harbhajan – and you send Irfan Pathan to open out – a pinch hitter ?  - if Virender Sehwag is to be kept out, then perhaps Tiwary could be tried to open even or the vastly talented Rohit Sharma could be the sacrificial goat. 

Kevin Pietersen just said he feels sorry for him.  India won the toss and spoiled it by opening with Pathan, who was totally ill at sea struggling against all bowlers – fans sighed heave of relief when he finally got out – but so also others getting out !!  Earlier to compound to the miseries, Gambhir innovated another way to get out – a poor judgmental run – Pat Cummin’s footwork doing the trick.  Dhoni reportedly said at the toss that all spinners [Ashwin, Harbhajan and Chawla] can bat and now it is up to them to salvage something with the bat and turn their hands.

In the first match of the day, Pak bowled well to restrict South Africa to 133. Had a good start then wickets fell in a heap – lost their 7th wicket at 76 – when Umar Gul swung them to an  improbable win.. Umar Akmal ensured the winning which came off a edge to Saed Ajmal
