SIX, DK! He has done it. And he outdoes MSD! In staying cool. The Indians are piling on him. Let him breathe lads. There’s kisses, cuddling, hugs and what not for DK. Look at Soumya Sarkar, he is in tears and is inconsolable. A couple of Bangladeshis in the dugout are in tears as well.
DK has won the Nidahas Trophy single-handedly. How cool was DK though! A flat six over extra cover. Skimmed over the rope. Just. But this game is about margins. Inches will do. Soumya Sarkar who had done really well till then, suddenly lost the plot and served up an overpitched delivery outside off, DK crashed that lofted drive and this shot will be etched in every Indian’s memory – maybe on par with MSD’s loft off Kulasekara on that magical Mumbai night on 2nd April 2011.
That gave India the World Cup. This Sri Lanka’s Independence Trophy. Unbelievable end to a near unbelievable game. What more can I say?
