After a long Pakistan visited INDIAN soil for a series (Last match was world cup 2011 semi-final). It was first T20 which Pakistan chased down a modest total made by strong batting lineup of team INDIA. Pakistan won the match by 5 wickets. There was many factors that favoured pakistan, includes some poor decision made by INDIAN captain Mahender singh Dhoni.
Dhoni had mistakes that cost INDIA the match. The captain make 3 big mistakes which are -
- Bhuvneshwar Kumar was let finish his over in single spell : Dhoni made mistake of finishing all the allotted over of man in great touch, in the single spell. He must bowled only 3 overs, 1 over must be preserve for last. Dhoni had different thought but it was not good.
- Kohli bowled continuously for 2 overs : Dhoni gave Kohli to bowl his medium pace which was a bad idea, kohli go for 8 runs and was looking much effective. Kohli must not have given to bowl again but he was, that cost 13 runs. It ease the pressure. Here jadeja should be given chance.
- Jadeja shouldn't bowl the last over : Though it was not easy to defend the low total and also if there is only 10 runs required of the last 6 balls. It would be fair if Bhuvneshwar Kumar was there to bowl but his quota was over, jadeja was given ball which make no sense. Yuvraj would have been tried instead of jadeja, who lack many things.
INDIA need to remove Rohit and Jadeja from the team and bring back Ashwin to the playing eleven to make some effort tin the game.
