Challengers 2007: India Blues Vs India Red

In this first match of the series, India Blues won by a whisker. The good performers in the game were Suresh Raina and Joginder Sharma for the Blues. For the Reds, Praveen Kumar bowled and batted well. S. Badrinath, Mohammed Kaif and ‘keeper M. Rawat batted well. However, their efforts were not enough to get them across the line. Gautam Gambhir (run out by Sehwag!), Virender Sehwag (out for 9) and Dinesh Kartik (out first ball to Praveen Kumar) had ordinary days in the office! But it was Suresh Raina’s 92 that helped India Blues reach a respectable total especially after his team was 41 for 4 after Sehwag won the toss and chose to bat (strange decision) on a sticky wicket and with the prospect of dew while bowling/fielding!

Ps: And in a totally unrelated development, and apropos of absolutely nothing, M. S. Dhoni has had a hair cut. It has sent the Indian media into a tizz!

  1. The standout performance for me was Amit Mishra, whatever the numbers may say.. Guy got two crucial wickets, showed plenty of control and did a pretty decent job with the willow too ..
