Cricket is a balance of bat and ball. This is farce.
If you actually watched the match, you'd notice that the boundaries were pushed all the way back. You can watch the highlights at http://www.youtube.com/ipl
if you'd like. In case you're wondering about the size of the ground itself, its 40000 m^2 (larger than average).
As for the pitch, it clearly had enough on it for Bollinger to record figures of 2-15 (3.75 rpo). Sometimes you have to give credit where credit is due. Watson defeated Murali in this particular case, live with it.
Just to head you off as I know no one ever wants to admit theyre wrong, lets just agree to disagree...
