The TRP ratings had indicated that this was one of the dullest IPLs, and going by the quality of cricket on Thursday night at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, it was easy to understand why. Twelve bowlers rotated the arm and barring Sunil Narine and Harbhajan Singh there wasn’t much imagination or skill from the rest as the game meandered away to an unsurprising finish. Tame short balls? Tick. Slower ones without any guile? Tick. Spinners that hardly spun? Tick. Jaydev Unadkat bowled short, a crime at his pace; Umesh Yadav was all over the place; Tim Southee was there and thereabouts without being potent, Jasprit Bhumrah had one of his lean days, his yorkers struggling to land in place; the Pandya brothers were pretty average, Andre Russell continued with his buffet of length deliveries that weren’t going scare anyone on this track, and Shakib Al Hasan too had an off day, unable to do much beyond rolling across his deliveries. There wasn’t much spark on display from most bowlers, barring Sunil Narine and Harbhajan SIngh(INDIAN EXPRESS,2016).
