    Forty rounds

    For the kind of running that was on show yesterday, especially from Dhoni and Kaif, I recommend forty rounds of the biggest ground in the Caribbean, bat in tow, for both of them.

    If ever a game was squandered due to inept running, this was it. West Indies should really have been chasing a target in excess of 280, perhaps even 300. They had to chase less than 250 and despite it being yet another last over finish, West Indies were never really going to lose it once India only scored 66 runs in the last 20 overs, 41 in the last 15, 30 in the last 10 and 19 in the last 5 overs. It wasn't as though there were no wickets in hand. The corresponding number of wickets lost at those intervals were 3, 3, 5 and 7. Before the madness set in, Bravo had 1/27 from 4 overs, Samuels had 0/26 from 5 and Gayle had 0/18 from 3. They ended up with 2/45 in 8, 1/41 in 10 and 0/35 in 10 respectively.

    Mind you, West Indies fielded and bowled brilliantly, not when Sehwag and Kaif were batting, but once they knew India were making things easy for them.

    Sarwan now averages 84 against India in one-dayers. He's now officially Chanderpaul's equivalent as far as causing pain is concerned.

    What did Kaif do wrong in his running? Dhoni's runout was his carelessness...Kaif's was plain misfortune..u cannot really learn to keep your bat down on such a can happen

    I've seen Kaif do this quite a few times - bat going up in the air when he dives. Either he should run faster or work out a better diving technique.
