Sehwag's a hit-or-miss player who hits more than he misses. He usually turns his 50s onto easy 100s. So dismissing him short of 50 was incredibly important for the Black Caps. SRT pulled a classic DaRok today. Got his @$$ bogged down before getting himself out playing a flurry of low percentage, premeditated shots. A straight ball dismissal at this stage of his fabled career is simply too F-ed up! Some folks at ICF must be calling for his head by now.
Anything from the quick scoring Raina is a plus but the real partnership threat would be the one between Kohli and Dhoni. New Zealand would have a great chance to lead and then build on it as long as they don't allow that partnership to happen.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
