  •  

     

     

    The innings of the tournament: Warner's 135 in 69 balls for New South Wales against Chennai. Analytically, this has become the best IPL/CL innings ever played. However, visually also there has been no better innings ever. It was important that the NSW bowlers delivered the match for Warner. Unlike the next few days when Warner's own 123 and Harris' 108 were squandered by the Australian club bowlers.

     

    The stunner of the tournament: Warner's 5 switch-hits, producing 3 x 4s and 1 x 6, producing 18 runs. An average of 3.6 runs per ball. One was off Dwayne Bravo, a medium pacer.

Yes, the match was in Jaipur - our home ground and yes, the Rest of India team wasn't as strong a team as it could've possibly been, yet it did little to change the outcome of the game.

     

    High-Pitched!

     

    First things first, the track at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium was prepared under the watchful eyes of the Chairman of the Pitch committee - Venkat Sundram. The thought behind supervising the pitch preparation was to avoid the repeat of last year's Irani trophy tie at the same venue. Back then, the track was as flat as a pancake, forgive the cliche, and thousands of runs were scored
