Whoever said catches win matches!
Two drop catches and sloppy fielding effort finds Mumbai Indians staring down the barrel in Champions Trophy T20 cricket tournament 2010 in SouthAfrica. South Australian Redbacks with their unsung heroes ( and remember, they are minus Pollard and Bravo) beat them in what turned out to a decent match. It only became interesting once Mumbai Indians started playing badly.
Tiwary, Pollard, Bravo all chipped in with decent knocks but either dropped catches or got taken to the cleaners with their bowling efforts. Even Sachin Tendulkar dropped a catch. What is Jonty Rhodes doing with the team? He was seen dangling on to changing room cross-bars which reminded me of the day when Shaun Pollock stood at the same dressing room door when SouthAfrica terribly misjudged the game against SriLanka which was determined on D/L method. SouthAfrica had lost by one run that night.
Mumbai Indians lost all pride tonight.
I hope Chennai SuperKings and Royal Challengers Bangalore can save the IPL brand name.
