Bangalore Royally Challenged!

Poor dear, Dravid! You’re luck of late has been worse than mine! 😦

Like many 20-20 crazy folk would have expected, the Test-squad-ish Bangalore, got royally hit on the head, mattai adi as the Chennai folk would call it.

However, all is not lost, if you are Bangalore fan, that is. It was one match, and there was clearly only one star – Brenden McCullum. As Dravid said at the presentation, if you take away McCullum’s score, you get 70-odd. Though I don’t fully agree with that statement – had McCullum not scored as much, maybe someone else would have played responsibly – there is some truth to it. Given that bouncy wicket, the scorecard will have looked different. But having said that, I must say that it was heartening to see Sourav’s captaincy still rocking!

Problems areas for Bangalore include Jaffer: the out-of-form, short-of-runs-in-the-recent-season, mostly Test-only batsman, Sunil Joshi, Zaheer to some extent, and the lack of a quality spinner (in Kumble’s absense). Adding to the woes are trying-to-return-to-form Dravid and currently-lacklustre Kallis. (Gosh! I’m having a serious adjective-block)

If you are down in the dumps after last night’s thrashing, fellow blogger Scorpicity has some food for the wounded soul. If Bangalore continues to get sloshed, I might join Scorpy in throwing expletives and rotten tomatoes at the IPL.

    @Ottayan, you are perseverant πŸ™‚ Unless the final turns out to be Mohali vs. Chennai, CSK might have to wait another year for my support.
    Btw, ayya sami Dhoni’s contribution yesterday was significant eh with the most expensive 2 runs?
