India are better than the West Indies

And largely thanks to the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja, of all people. We’re still not quite sure how he gets wickets.

This week’s instalment of The Spin was about Jadeja and how fans didn’t value him for a long time. We’re glad he’s no longer getting a hard time, but we’re not too sure how we feel about him taking five wicket hauls. Surely that should be the preserve of bowlers who don’t purvey such a nondescript stock delivery?

So while it’s good that Jadeja is at last getting positive recognition, we’d much prefer him to get it for taking 2-48 and chipping in with a few handy lower order runs. Surely that’s the point – appreciating someone for doing the less spectacular work. Anyone can get positive recognition for dismissing half a team.

The other major contributors to India’s win were Shikhar Dhawan and his moustache who scored a second hundred on the bounce. India are still our tip for the Champions Trophy.

  1. Australia are better than everybody at providing laughs, though. First former international class batsman David Warner and his anger management, then Phil Hughes and his Guptill management.

    3.1
    McClenaghan to Wade, OUT, it’s Guptill again. Hughes can’t get rid of Guptill, who is not even in the slip. Hughes has not even played this ball, but Guptill has still got him. Wade looks to drop and run, but both batsmen hesitate. Guptill runs in from cover, swoops in, flicks this onto the stumps even as he dives. Guptill sends Hughes back again

    PJ Hughes run out 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
