Ecstasy and Heartbreak

On one hand it was a great feeling seeing Deccan Chargers back to their winning ways by trouncing Mumbai Indians by 19  runs. A stupendous bowling effort by Rohit Sharma who took 4 wickets for 6 runs which included a hat trick was the main reason for the DC win.

    True.

    Though the behavior of the Chelsea players after the match left a bitter aftertaste!

    And did u notice how Sachin only praised Pinal in his post-match interview whilst totally ignoring Duminy, who had anchored the innings until that mini-collapse?

    @YC, going by the reports the referee was too biased against Chelsea. At least 3-4 penalty claims were turned down? Anyway that still doesnt give them the right to protest that way. Wonder what Mourinho would have done if he was still with Chelsea. Then, i would have stayed awake to see his rants at the press conference 😉

    As for Sachin’s praise of Pinal at the excuse of JP, lets face the fact. For all of Sachin’s talent and performance on the field, he’s not exactly a great leader like Dhoni or Ganguly is. Its known to everyone how he plays the regional card. Or else how does a crap like Ajit Agarkar still wake up from the grave and play for India again and again? Its good that India didnt persist with giving him the captaincy for a long time.

    @Indyeah i watched only the cricket. Missed the football. Now that Chelsea has lost, i would not even bother watching the highlights of the match.
