When you are getting full tosses are full tosses, at least 1 or 2 of them should directly go the batsman's bat directly into the stand. It's not like you have to worry about finding the gap, you can pretty much pick any spot you want in the stand with those kinds of juice full tosses. Mis-timing a full toss can happen once or twice in an innings not 10 times.
I think a bigger worry for us is Riyad and Tamim's runnings in between the wicket. Had Nasir and Shakib were batting instead of these 2, they would picke up easily 10 extra runs just turning those slow singles to doubles. When you have 9 wickets left in your hand and less than 10 overs left, it's not the end of the world for you to run a risky doube. Specially when the fielder's are throwing the ball from far outfield, the throw would have to be pretty damn accurate and close to the stump in order for the wicket keeper to collect it and break the stumps.
10 extra runs! Thats all we needed!
I woke up today morning thinking what we have done last night, still hurtiung me a lot. Can't believe that they could not put away the juicy full tosses, any international batsman shol be able to dispatch those.
Running was poor, veyr poor. They could have scored 15 extra runs, then we would be 3 runs short given that we lost by 18! Oh...all I wanted those 15 runs nothing more.
