The game of cricket is to be played just like a game of chess and by depending on the wicket or the toss we will be pushed to the doom and that came true at Pune. Having seen such debacles at home and abroad in the past, Indian Team ought to have played O’Keefe like a fast bowler. Instead, Indian team underestimated the opposition and paid heavy price for complacency. Ex-cricketers Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh mocked at the Australian side and they should now eat their words. Again, why Bhajji is given a chance again to air his views as he is no one to comment having own draw back in bowling and in character while playing for India. After all he bowled on spinning tracks with illegal bowling action (javeline throw), over appealing without DRS to get OC wickets and all the controversies including monkeygate and slapgate spoiled his name as cricketer. Why then he is poking his nose and press paying undue importance to him. Praise O’Keefe and do not highlight Harbhajan Singh’s comments once again in the media.
