Indian Run Feast in the third ODI v/s Sri Lanka…363-5 in 50 Overs

Dhoni’s luck with the toss continued as he called tails and tails it was…. chose to Bat…Sachin was once again unfortunate to be ruled LBW..ball was missing leg stump…Gambhir was run out at the Non Strikers end by the bowler’s deflection…India 24/2

Then walked in Yuvraj Singh….Sehwag and he created history with a 221 runs partnership in just 167 balls with both scoring centuries

Yuvraj reached the three figure mark first and scored 117 of 95 balls…Sehwag scored 116 of just 90 balls

It has taken Ten long years for someone to score an ODI century against the Sri Lankans in Sri Lanka

Yusuf Pathan scored a quickfire 59 in just 38 balls with four 4s and three 6s in an unbroken partnership of 85 runs in just 69 balls with Dhoni, who remained unbeated with 35

Top Spinners,Mendis and Murali .were both ineffective,though Murali claimed Yuvraj’s wicket to reach 502 wickets and equal Wasim Akrams’s ODI Record

India ended it’s Innings scoring a record 363-5 in 50 Overs

Sri Lanka begin the run chase shortly and expect Jayasuriya to fire from Ball One as the asking rate is Seven Runs an Over !

What awesome Batting by the Indians !…If India wins they take an unassailable 3-0 Winning Lead in this Series   

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh…from being reviled to being revered !

We blame Cricket Players for Performance Inconsistency…But just reflect…We too are guilty of Inconsistency when assessing them

A Strong Case in point is our own Cricketer ‘Yuvi’ or Yuvraj Singh

We revered him when he hit those record Six Sixes of a Six Ball Stuart Broad Over in the T20 World Cup in South Africa…Our Board rewarded him with a Luxurious Premium Car…We all agreed that he was from ‘Another Planet’

We Reviled him when he failed to perform after the T-20 World Cup and dropped him from the Test Team…Cynics and Critics agreed that we need to send him to ‘Another Planet’

We brought him back into the ODI Team and he has won us the first two ODIs against England ,literally single handed…he remained unbeaten in Rajkot with an aggressive 138,his ninth ODI Hundred and won the ‘Man of the Match’ Award…In today’s second ODI,he came in at 29/3 and scored a back to back hundred,his Tenth Hundred in ODIs..His all round performance of scoring 118 and taking 4 wickets got him back to back ‘Man of the Match’ Awards

Yes,Yuvi,you’re surely from ‘Another Planet’…When you perform like this you’re simply ‘Out of this World Man !’…Teach me how to play that Block Shot Six that you did of Flintoff soaring way over his head into the Crowds !..Nah ! you can’t teach anybody such Shots !..They are Divine..and you are Blessed you can play them !

Keep Going ‘Yuvi’…you’re in great Orbit !
