First elections, then Wimbledon finals, BCCI has no sense of timing. Luckily the rains do.

other perspective. India won its 5th consecutive ODI series. isnt that a big thing.

straight point said...

yes megha...the team who played worst cricket in recent memory won the series...the bizarre end to bizaare series...

K said...

Didn't feel like a series win. But yes fifth consecutive ODI series win. Should there be celebrations when the Indian team lands at the airport?

Fark said...

What?!?! You guys are ACTUALLY saying you didn't enjoy staying up to wee hours , watching 2 brilliant teams exhibit magnificent cricket, and brilliant team selections, 3/4th empty stands??!?!

Well, guess who will cry the most when ODI's die out to be completely replaced by T20s? Dhoni fans!

@NC

It was a great game of tennis, wasn't it? I was actually OK with the rain in Gros Islet.

@Sam

Sure...as far as mere stats go, this win is huge..but you cannot deny that the quality of cricket was not that good.

@SP

spot on! Can't help but think if India won the series only because of Gayle's decision to let Taylor bowl the final over in ODI #3.

@K

yes...the win barely registered. As for the celebrations, I vote for the fake kind!

@Fark

Don't you know it yet? We are a masochistic breed :)

@raj
Hmm...no question that Dhoni needs to work on his T20 game(and till then stop coming in at no. 3!)...for the team's sake, I hope we see a change soon :)

BTW, get that 'Fake Series' thing copyrighted.

Megha said...

i really should, Som...it could be the 2 millionth word in English language for all I know...

may be on seeing Dhoni wining the MoS award raj would have cried 10000 litres of tears.....Amma!!!!!!!!

Sam, your pathetic attempts doat humour! . Try harder. I think it is time you came out of your delusion that you are the only indian who has the interests of india at heart. Man, and you who use words like Amma, and rajnikanth to denote TN, you think you rise above partisan politics in India? Wow! Delusion personified, you are, my dear fellow.
I think I have a life outside blogging and cricket, so yes, cricketing events dont affect me in the way they perhpas do to you - like, for example , MoYo's century or Pak's WC win - ouch, how much that must have hurt you, the pure white pan-Indian soul!
