CSK wins ~ RP Singh no balls; Suraj Randiv and Mohd Asif......

‘Oney nam, no ball ekak danna puluwan’ - can you translate this ……..

The last time they played at Chepauk, RCB were in absolute commanding position on 12th April 2012;  Virat Kohli had been a hero after a good knock but came on to bowl that forgettable 19th over with 43 required.  Albie Morkel ransacked 28 runs off it.  It was 4; 6; 4; 6; 2; 6 & 6……….. all Morkelled.  The last over of Vinay Kumar lasted till the last delivery and a CSK win………………

Yesterday, it was more closer… can it get closer beyond that last ball ? – Chasing 166, CSK were 101/4 after 15 with 65 required off 30 balls. 16th of RP Singh produced 11; 17th of Rampaul 13; 18th of Vinay 12; 29 required off 12 deliveries.  Off the first delivery, Rampaul had Dhoni, gave 13 and it was 16 off last six ~ another nail baiting finish. 

It was to be bowled by Rudra Pratap Singh ~ to Jadeja : 4, 6, [6 off  4 now]; 1; 2; 1; 2 needed off the last delivery as one thought of a Super over…. but RP had other ideas.  Jadeja cut it high, ball landing in 3rd man’s hands………. who is celebrating not RCB but Chennai ~ it was a no ball, by a big margin… one for the no ball and one for the run – CSK won with another legal delivery left.

So, Sir Jadeja can get out and still win a match – add to his meme..

Replays showed this wasn't just any ordinary no-ball, RP had overstepped by a foot.  ‘Oney nam, no ball ekak danna puluwan’ - can you translate this ……..  In Aug 2010, in Lanka, with Sehwag needing a single to complete century and match about to end with that scoring a shot ~ these were the words uttered by Tilakaratne Dilshan to the bowler Randiv, clearly instruction to bowl a no ball ~ Suraj Randiv did ~  Sehwag did smack a 6 which would not count as by the time of no ball, India had won.  India won, Sehwag was stranded on 99.  That was the school boyish immature act of Lankans.  The ridiculous rule was that the  ball would be counted as having been played by Sehwag but the six scored of it would not count.  The man captaining Sun risers now, Sanga quoted a few other incidents including monkey gate – now for IPL money, you have Sanga, Mahela and Angelo leading 3 teams !!!!!

During the same time, Pak in England were embroiled in controversy.  Wahab Riaz debuted and bowed greatly.   In Aug 2010  For Pak cricket fans their humiliating 74 all out folding was not the worst shock – but the revelation that the no balls fell in plan, as revealed by the tabloid. Mazhar Majeed had predicted them and told the tabloid that Salman Butt (the captain) had been the ring leader and there were seven others…. yes Pak had delivered ‘no balls’ as agreed per plan, which lead to some of them facing fines and arrests……In November 2011, Asif was convicted, along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir, of conspiracy charges relating to spot-fixing. On 3 November 2011, Asif was given a one-year prison sentence for his role in the scandal.
