6/4/2013: DD vs RR

The star studded DD lose again, Sehwag again sitting out, this time to  a low placed team of RR. 

RR win toss and decide to bat and bat well, very well till the 16th over, to be 142/2. And they end up with 165/7 in 20 overs. Must have caused good loss to a number of session bettors.

Well placed to win at 149/2 in 17.5 overs and requiring 166 to win, DD throw it in front of their home crowd, to lose by 5 runs.

When Russel comes to crease, the commentator starts telling about his strike rate of 150 and what a good striker/hitter he was. An indication for the wise, that he was going to flop and flop he did under the circumstances. This is just one example of numerous instances of opposite action on the ground than what is subtly hinted by the commentators. Something brought out in 'Inside The Boundary Line.'
