One-Day Mataram

Deconstructing the gentleman's game

Jaded India lose to Pakistan and email

An irrelevant series or not, the Indians let their guard down and allowed a Pakistani team, revitalized by an email from PCB chief, into the final contest. The edge and ruthlessness that Indians displayed in their league matches was inexplicably missing and they missed chances, bowled uninspiring spells and batted without commitment. And in the end, the determination of the Pakistanis saw them pip the Indians at the post.

Maybe Sharad Pawar should've written an email or two prior to the final too! ;-)
