Whether you call it a shameful defeat, the start was anyway a false one. While Dhoni & Co wanted to “pitch” their game on their playing field, they were literally outclassed and outplayed on their own battlefield. As they used to say in a hindi idiom – “naach na jaane angan tedha” (translated – Dunno how to dance and yet the floor seems to be uneven) – it applies to our blessed team!! The captain now has the audacity to blame the batsmen of not capitalizing. His “spat” with the curator of Eden Gardens is now shoved under.
