India draw first blood..

It was an important game for Dhoni & Co. After the humiliating test series defeat at home, India were supposed to come back hard. Players like Dhoni, Yuvraj had to prove a point and help India recover from the ‘Off-field’ mess. (Captaincy issues, dropping players in media reports etc.)

India vs England first T20 at Pune.

The match started with India winning the toss and electing to field. To my surprise, the 11 players that I had predicted for today’s game in my previous post, 9 were in the playing XI. (A great way to start my career as a part of selection committee ๐Ÿ˜›ย )

England started in a great fashion with Hales and Wright making the bulk of runs. The pie-chucker – Yuvi turned the game for India with 3 quick wickets and brought India back in the game. India required to score 158 in 20 overs.

India had a blistering start but soon lost 2 quick wickets. Then again, Punjab-da-Putter came to the crease and smashed some lovely drives for four and some massive sixes. This helped India recover and get back on track. Later it was Dhoni & Raina who comfortably took India home.

It was a great game, though at one point it was like, England would score 180+, but thanks to Yuvi who helped the team with the bat and ball.

All in all a confidence booster for India. They need to win 3 more T20s(1 vs England and 2 vs Pak) and then they might get to No.1 spot in T20s. Let’s hope the same happens…
