Victorious Asians- Men In Blue!

2 min read
Fifteen years is what it took India to win back the Asia Cup Title. What better time than this time where the belief of the supporters in the team was in complete doldrums after the defeat in Zimbabwe. It was the bowling attack that made the difference. Zaheer bowled peach of a delivery to get rid of the dangerous Sangakkara. The ball kissed the top of the stumps while Sangakkara tried to leave the ball. Dilshan’s wicket was very important as he always makes it big when it matters a lot. Nehra didn’t allow Dilshan to trouble at all by claiming his wicket for a duck. Angelo Matthew followed his team mate by giving his wicket to the same bowler at the same score of duck. Nehra applied brakes at the right time and it was too late for the tail enders to guide the Lankan’s to the shore. His 41/4 wrote the script of Indian victory and he also bagged the Man of the Match award
It was clearly seen that Sri Lanka depends heavily on some of the senior players. The younger lot has to do lots of catching up as the middle order does not seem to provide a solid support.
Dinesh Karthik grabbed the opportunity with both the hands. He replaced injured Viru for this match and scored a brilliant 66 runs at the right time.
This victory is going to be remembered for a long time as the eventful match against Pakistan was also played in the same series.Well played team India. continue the winning streak as we have the big debacle coming up to be played in India- World Cup 2011

  1. India’s poor showing at the tri nation Zimbabwe series and yesterday’s Asia cup win; has reiterated the point once again, that Rainas, Tiwaris still need senior support to win big matches.

    Well done India. Keep winning.

  2. It was an awesome win after a long time. After a long time Indians didnt choke in the final and the victory was looking in he hands of Indians
    Rest of the times, they dont play it as finals. It looks like practice match where nidia give a dismal performance.
    This series in Particular was Good.. to top it up, match against Pakistan was awesome.
    One thing I would like to appreciate about your blog is the style of writing. The article drags me into reading more thats why i keep waiting for the updates.

    Cheers Shams n Wags.
