Dada – Showed why multiple captain theory of KKR Buchanan was stupid!!!!!

They said they were the underdogs….

They said he did not have chance….

All called for his retirement…

His home team did not pick him up!

Well they always said that…. but the Bengal Tiger showed his burning bright eyes what a CAPTAIN he is…. for PUNE WARRIORS.

Pune Warrior scoring a low 130 score, and it looked done and dusted. But Jadeja said if Mumbai is 24/3 like Pune, Ganguly will not let it go! And he was right.

Ganguly kept a slip on despite the low score and the second over Dinda gave a ball, which Raydu misjudged and it went to Karthik at first slip. Karthik did his best and took crucial wickets. The first one in the first over….

The field changes were great and worked out. Mumbai did fight back, but it was not enought. Steven Smith, Uthappa did good to bring some respect to Pune Warriors score…. AND Karthick gave a final impetus with a six and four which may have made a difference to the presure.

Now lets see how the players rally around Dada and Pune. This was Captain’s victory… how he called that the pitch would turn, how he picked up five spinners in his side and used four of them…. how he placed the field.

Those who played under him, those who watched him captain… knows that Sourav Ganguly aka Dada, will fight until the last breath. He has been a fighter and always will be. It is never about the money it’s about self-esteem! I hope SRK and other owners who did not pick him up last time understands that… think about IPL2 to remove him the theory of multiple captains came up. They said 20-20 did not need one captain. Question is….. how many time have you captained and played?????

Thank you Subroto Roy to have the courage to give the mantle to Dada. We the Dada followers will support your team no matter what. I do not know if we win or not. But I do know that Dada will make one last roar…. against the Non Believers!

Where was Shakib Al Hasan? Time to call Bob Biswas to the rescue?

M de Lange vs Shakib Al Hasan. The East Bengal Tigers, mauled the Indians, Sri lankans and almost the Pakitanis in the recently concluded Asia cup. Shakib Al Hasan should have been playing, but the KKR manament went for M de Lange the fast bowler, whose economy rate was more then 9.  He gave away 36 runs in 3 overs. The reason to pick him – well the same reason Buchanan wanted the multiple captains in IPL2, just to remove Dada. This is called the GSKA Syndrome. Shakib Al Hasan also appeals now in SRK style. So please pick him up in the next game. He will do well!

The match was poised evenly with KKR hitting those neat sixes. Without those lusty hiting it would have been a no score. Delhi looked organized in the chase and the promotion of Irfan Pathan was a good one. What impressed me was Finch, who kept the ball on the ground and rotated the strike.

The good news was that the stadium was at full capacity, which surprised me. And CM, Mamta Didi was there. May be she should allow SRK to paint the stadium blue also 🙂

Early days yet but IPL5 should give us a new champion and good stories. and SRK will say… Picture ABHI BAKI HAI!!! And will use the new secret weapn now. Nomoskor Ek Min!
