How to lose a match

Kolkata Knight Riders:

1/1 - Ganguly out first ball. Idiot. Bet he can't get on his high horse in front of McCullum now.

Hodge comes it all hodgily. If that's a word.

The 4th ODI between Australia and Pakistan is on right now. I'm not watching. Gayle is also an idiot.

Anyway, so Mumbai win by 9 runs. There ya go.

Tumbled straight off, Dada did. Poor.

You have a live feed finally, Amy?

Amy said...

I do, but not the one you'd expect. Some people have already figured it out, and it wouldn't be too difficult if you thought about it for a bit. I'm on Twitter in non-Amy form.

Tell me if you find me :)

rhoe said...

I just had a heady moment. I now know how AB feels. Should I be thinking what i thought? Chris Gayle just made a hash of things. Poor Baz looks stupefied. They really are a mess, aren't they? But you already personally know this, dont you? :)

Amy said...

Well, does that mean something more than I think? But Kolkata are having a fine collapse. It's not even great to watch, because this is what they always do. Those two shots that led to wickets were pathetic.

I dont know what Agarkar does to be recalled every alternate match.
And why are mendis and mortaza wasted?
Mortaza was bought for 600k!! to warm the fuckin bench!

rhoe said...

It probably does. Im still searching. :) Two horrible shots. Yashpal Singh must be pretty smug after Ganguly went apeshit on him after he got out vs RR playing a crap shot.

Amy said...

Kolkata have officially lost the plot.

Watching Ganguly fail would surely have to bring a smile to Baz's face, if only for a second.

Amy said...

rhoe, well, it's about cricket, and it's pissed a few people off. And I might have mentioned it before.

That's a shocker of a clue.

Amy said...

Esra, I'm sure he smiled secretly. I would. Ganguly was bound to have been hostile in soe ways at least towards Baz about the whole captaincy issue.

Amy said...

@Prafs, you know I just realised you aren't on the blogroll. Really sorry, I thought I had you on there. Adding you now.

Esra_Star said...

I found Amy on Twitter, well disguised!

Prafs said...

thanks amy :)appreciate it!

Getting Mortaza was probably an effort to win more East Bengali hearts.

Kinda hard to use that angle in a totally different continent.

... I'm not there too. :(

Ha ha. Wow. Kolkata might actually be able to pull this off.

Amy said...

Esra, have you now? ;) I think you might have.

Maithreyi, you're just saying that because you've yet to see the team collapse after the time-out. It'll be soon, mark my words.

rhoe said...

Ah, yes. The Ab feeling was called for.. :)

DO you see, KKR are..gulp.. looking ok.

Amy said...

Yes, some of their most unlikely foreigners are stepping up to the plate. Well, Hodge is almost expected, but van Wyk is interesting.

So you found it then?

Maithreyi said...

Ha ha ha, go Hodge!

My general dislike for the KKers is warring with my general love for underdogs but ultimately the slightly perverse pleasure I take in seeing Mumbai being taken down a few (hundred) pegs seals my alignment for this match.

Collapse? Where? *scouts around* Can't find one, nope, sorry. :D

rhoe said...

No collapse imminent. They mean business. Unfortunately.

Amy said...

Maithreyi, one sec, Hodge run out. 1 over and 19 runs required. Not a collapse, but apparently a loss. haha.

Rhoe, they won't make it. Too bad, too bad.

rhoe said...

Bazzzzzzzz.... :(

Amy said...

Yeah, you know it. He's not going to get any runs this season. Or they'll accumulate to be less than this first score in last season's IPL.

Maithreyi said...

Note to self: SHUT UP.

Anyway, this betters Chennai's chances of making the top 4, so I don't mind.

Amy said...

Neither do I. Anything to further the interests of my team.
