That's how it looked live, Chris. I think Dhoni and Rahane were finding looking to just tick things over, but they found it hard to even score enough singles and twos. Rahane in particular was stuck on strike, and Dhoni was caught between wanting to smash and not feeling like he had the right deliveries to do it against. His run out had all the signs of a guy who'd given up.
Well, I could have written an article offering the insight that the guy who made a century had an influence on the result, but mostly I'm there to get a feel for the game, and to look for moments that are notable one way or the other. There are enough match reports already. Johnson had an effect on the atmosphere in both innings, so it's worth discussion.
Great line about the spark plugs : )
Good to hear from you Sheek, looking forward to the Trans-Tasman final very much.
