Watched the enthralling second game of the Ind-WI series. Saw Yuvraj take India from a 'hopeless 60/4' in some 18 overs, to 1 run short of the West Indian score with 2 balls to go. A brilliant, matchless effort (93 bowled) - ending in an absolutely heart-wrenching failure.

This sets up the series very well - all squared after two close and exciting contests. If only the matches were not at such unearthly hours...

But the thing that'll stay in my memory for a while is Yuvraj's effort - briliiant, so close... yet agonizingly far... just like it was for Sarwan earlier in the match (98 not out - stranded at the non-striker end in the final over). I wonder how that feels and am trying to imagine an analogy with no success so far.
