30 wickets across two games... a good day for the bowlers at last...
Cricket may now be a batsman's game, but there are days when the bowlers send hearts soaring.
Trent Boult and Mitchell Starc were awesome when the Kiwis took on the Kangaroos.
Both lionhearts had career bests on Saturday, and it was a pity that one team had to win in what was clearly the game (scorecard) of the Cup so far.
Ravichandran Ashwin too had a career best later that day.
The offie's show was not in the Boult-Starc league, but his 4/25 (scorecard) will give Indian fans, who had begin to despair about his wicket ways, something to cheer about.
Abhishek Mande-Bhot/Rediff.com and contributor Chandresh Narayan discuss both games on The Rediff Cricket Show.
Here's the first part of the discussion:
