Happy Brothers' Day

If it isn't today then it should have been.

The Husseys did it for the Aussies, while the Pathans did it for the Indians.

From 101-3, the Husseys took the Australians to 216 leaving them less than 30 to get off the next 34 deliveries.

The Pathans bettered that.

Chasing 172 in 20 overs, India looked down and out at 115-7 in 15.1 overs.

But such is the confidence of this Indian team that despite losing Jadeja on the 1st ball of the 16th over, Yusuf Pathan smashed 17 off the next 5 deliveries.

Imagine that.

The Pathans added 59 off only 25 deliveries to take India home with 4 balls to spare.

A day for the Husseys. A day for the Pathans.

A day for the Brothers!

    fewer overs, grter impact, that's yusuf pathan. give him one ball, he'll make 8 runs.

    and irfan's a t20 specialist.
    gotta be something abt their attention spans.

    give them this, they know how to celebrate.

    Quite an era for brothers.

    World cricket has not been such a family affair since that Zim side of the turn of the century.
