Inti's Spin Trap Works!

No one really paid much attention to Intikhab Alam when he said that he was planning a spin trap for the Australians.

2 and a half hours into the 1st ODI, we know exactly what he was talking about!

Australia down at 131-9 with 8 wickets going to spinners.

6 out of those to one Shahid Afridi!

Who would have imagined?

Afridi with a 6 for and a best ever bowling effort in ODIs.

He has truly and surely been on fire.

While Saeed Ajmal has been completely unplayable.

He has spun the ball both ways and the Aussies have had no answer to him.

Afridi's leggies, googlies, offies, faster ones and Saeed Ajmal's offies and doosras have totally rocked the Aussie boat.

I couldn't have asked for a better start to my temporary career as a reporter from within the stadium.

And Intikhab Alam, you sir, were absolutely right!

    Congrats your team one !!! was flipping between IPL and this one but really I have seen a lot of bloggers giving this argument day in day out that low scoring matches are more fun but watching this one hmm not so sure...but very happy for Pakistan team hopefully they will ask Afridi to open again

    We shall see Sam, we shall see.

    Though I know that the Aussies will come back hard.

  5. Q said...

    Indophile, am glad too. I missed the IPL today cos I was at the ground.

    I hope Afridi doesn't open though. He's better off downstairs.
