Pin It

In this IPL – there are a number of players who blossomed under the captaincy of Saurav Ganguly and Dada as a skipper, really was responsible to bring out the best from them.  And this season, they are actually up against captaining against their OWN mentor (Harbhajan Singh – Mumbai Indians, Virender Sehwag – Delhi Daredevils, MS Dhoni- Chennai Superkings, Rahul Dravid – Rajasthan Royals). So, it is really a question of… whether GURU is still the original strategist or with the age that attribute is also going down. Will he still overcome his students in this IPL at 40?

But, DADA stands true up upon all his attributes. He still holds that fire in him, still has the charisma for a good leader. He was at his best in the match against the Delhi Daredevils (Captain – Virender Sehwag). Finally he was amongst the runs with the bat, and when they had a formidable target on board – it was time for Ganguly to show how he will manage his bowling resources given the Batting power Delhi Daredevils had.

DD batsmen were at their best – Sehwag and Peterson, were looking to take the match away from Pune Warriors – with their fierce power hitting – it was fireworks at both the ends. Dada was in constant discussion with his bowlers, making instant field changes – but somehow his bowlers could not bowl to the plan and was easily visible from the angrish look of DADA. And like the DADA of early days, he took the ball in his hand… and from his very first delivery he got rid of the danger man Kevin Peterson and his joy was unstoppable. And, from there on – the just seemed to take a different path. DADA bowled his full quota of over’s taking 2 wickets for 27 runs, In fact it could have been 3 for 27 if Angelo Mathews had not dropped a simple catch.

And in the post match conference – we could easily make out, the camaraderie between Sehwag and DADA.

Way to go DADA !!!
