2014 World T20: India v/s West Indies

Result: India win by 7 wickets, to win their second game in a row

Player of the match:
Amit Mishra for his 2-18 in 4 overs. His second MoM in a row, after Pakistan. On his way to becoming India’s Man Of The Series. A leg spinner, how often do you see that? Despite Yuvraj dropping Gayle’s catch, Mishra was even responsible indirectly for building pressure on Sameuls leading to Gayle’s runout.

Deserved Player of the match:
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for his stunning 3-0-3-0 spell. Joint most economical figures in T20 cricket.

WTF of the match:
The first 10 overs bowled to West Indies. Smith’s struggle against Kumar will become stuff of legends. He couldn’t even nick the ball if he wanted to, such was Kumar’s mastery over both variations of swing. Gayle struggled even against the part time spinner Raina.

Fail of the match:
Yuvraj Singh. For two games now, he has looked all sorts of ‘out of sort’. He dropped a Gayle sitter off Mishra’s second ball, his 3rd drop in 2 games. He came in at no. 4 when the win looked easy and made a meal out of it before ending his own struggle on 10 of 19 balls. He couldn’t read the pace, swing or even spin. Alarmingly bad performance.

Innings of the match:
Virat Kohli. Chasing. Again. Looks in another zone.

Sunday Sickness:
The fielding AND catching through the Pak-Aus and India-WI games. Lost count of the number of dropped catches, even by Australia. The standards were abysmal, marring some brave bowling and batting.

Surprise of WT20 2014:
Team India. Two wins in two, on the verge of qualification to the semis already. Their last match against Australia (Sunday) will come after Bangladesh, hence putting them in pole position. They have not qualified for the semi finals since their inaugural World Cup T20 win back in 2007.

Sir of the match:
Jadeja. For making it a contest by giving away 21 runs in his last over.

Butterfingers of the match:
Ashwin. For posing like a status after dropping a regulation slip catch of Gayle on 0. Gayle added 34 runs after that.

Modern Tech fail of the match:
Not hotspot or DRS or Third Umpiring, but a 15 minute delay with all the players on the pitch before the second innings. Why? Because nobody could figure out if WI finished on 129 or 130. Took 15 minutes for the officials to comb through their vast array of monitors and statistical machines to figure this out.
