Calypso Dance

It was a power-packed weekend for sports. Roger Federer created history by winning 6th Wimbledon title and became the only player to win 15 Grand slam titles surpassing the great Pete Sampras (Sham’s all time favorite tennis player) and with last ODI washed out due to rains,India clinched 4 matches one day series by 2-1. This is after a long gap of 7 years that India has won ODI series in Carribean.
After an early exist from T20 world cup Dhoni & Co. toured WI as wounded tigers and certainly wanted to turn the table in their favour this time as WI was one of the side who played spoilt sport for their exist from T20 WC.
With opening pair failed to fire, it was all on middle order especially Dhoni & Yuvraj to shoulder responsibility and they did it with perfection. Yuvraj blasted 131 in first ODI to make India reach a score of 329 to defend and finally won the match, while Dhoni played a fighting knock of 95 in second ODI after India batting collapsed at was struggling at 78-7. He once again showed power with the bat promoting himself at number three in 3rd ODI where it was close win after D/L revised scores.
Dhoni declared Man of the Series.
If people talk of records then this is India’s 5th series win in a row while Dhoni hit 6 (six series wins).

In the midst of the Swine flue where the chances of the tour being called off was a possibility, we head towards Sabina Park-Kingston for a wonderful ODI series between India and West Indies.
There is news about the sad demise of king of Pop Michael Jackson.Our sincere tribute to MJ.

India would be playing with out some of the star players yet Gayle has his apprehensions against the Indians as he strongly believes that on a given day, any player can change the course of the play for India. Hope that our player creates havoc for Gayle and Co.
It has been sorts of comeback for Aashish Nehra afer a long time courtesy injury to Zaheer.
While we have a look at one of the videos where Dhoni had dropped a sitter on Nehra’s bowling, there was a serious piece of thought being given by Nehra to Dhoni. MS was mere a wicketkeeper that time around. If one were to see that video again, Nehra getting picked in the Indian squad would be a far off possibility as Ms is now a captain.
Strangely, Nehra has never been dropped due to bad performance. His inability to stay fit through out the series has always worked against him, resulting into bring dropped.

Good time for Abhishek Nayar to show his skills as he had demonstrated while playing for Mumbai Indians. He is a classic left hander who can do both job attack and hold the fort when ever required.

Apart from the Calypso king Gayle, the player to be watched out is Dwayne Bravo.
If one bravo was not enough, there’s one more to join the party, yes Darren Bravo, Dwayne’s brother. We haven’t seen the exploits of the debutant Darren yet, so let’s see what he has got under his head.

So let’s enjoy in the series in Calypso style – Ho la la la la lu le yo!!
