World Cup 2011: India turn chokers against South Africa

March 14, 2011

In what can be described only as a series of bizarre incidents, India choked in a typically South African fashion against the Proteas on Sunday.

One can list out various reasons for the defeat- not playing an e,tra spinner against spin-dreading South Africa, power play batting collapse, giving away too man runs up front, Dhoni’s captaincy, bowling Nehra instead of Harbhajan- but that would only amount to beating the “we-don’t-have-any-bowling” dead horse.

This defeat may not be too bad. After all, this may be what the thinking tank needs to fi, the problems. There are a good number of those, since match 1. Winning a match almost ensures that the “winning combination” will play again. Shortcomings will not be looked at. This defeat provides that opportunity. Will only have to wait and watch.
