sehwag blew it...

22.6
Swann to Sehwag, OUT, Swann has his man! Sehwag goes to paddle one across the line, the ball hits him as it turns, he has gotten a ways forward and Harper upholds a massive appeal from the bowler, that one struck the front pad and looked like it would hit leg stump so a fascinating innings comes to a sudden end

V Sehwag lbw b Swann 83 (102m 68b 11x4 4x6) SR: 122.05

viru, you have just kicked the chance of making this innings THE INNINGS of all test matches...

more so ever...coz it would have come against poms...

It was so expected...I mean it would have been unreal...if you could have stayed and played the knock required...off him...

Sam said...

what if he didnt hv got out and lived on for day 5. match over by 2 PM ?

Straight Point said...

yes utp... it was so unreal that only sehwag could rid of himself...which eventually he did...

Straight Point said...

most certainly sam...but he has already done enough for this match now its the turn of our much famed middle order to keep the momentum...

"Swann has his man!"

Sehwag is his own man.

If Viru had stayed till lunch on the fifth day, the match would have been over shortly afterwards.

Now, I foresee RD bogging things down a bit before SRT and VVS have to hold the fort.

I think if he had not gotten out, the England team would have had a sleepless night and that would have been an advantage...
I see RD rotating the strike nicely and holding an end while others play some more attacking cricket- high hopes?

He did his job, the match was almost lost until the superman came to the rescue, and now I think India will win it it comfortably.

Straight Point said...

samir...if only he stayed... :)

Straight Point said...

i dont think even he belong to his own self...

Straight Point said...

RS...no captain can sleep with sehwag still on crease...

Straight Point said...

wasim...sehwag does his own stuff and make pitch, condition redundant...he makes it look ridiculously easy...if only other take some tip and go with positive mindset...
