    What was sweeter than success?

    India's convincing win at Rajkot to go 5-1 up in the series against Sri Lanka was very heartening for a number of reasons. Some of them were Yuvraj and Kaif getting some runs, Rudra Pratap Singh's bowling display and the excellent fielding displayed. But the most important takeaway from the victory was the fact that India conceded three extras in the game, the first time the side had conceded less than five extras in a normal 50-over game since December 1997. If we're talking about one-dayers played at home, we go as far back as October 1986, an era when the likes of Greg Ritchie played one-day cricket! Eerily though, that game was also played at Rajkot!

    How likely is it that the heat and enormous amount of energy sapping that could be the reason? Bowlers would much rather bowl six balls an over than seven or more.
