Biggest positive? Is this why in two games he failed to finish his best bowlers' quotas? Between Shak and Sunny, he left out 5 overs in last 2 games. Instead he bowled Nasir and Riyad in the middle. So you can't say it was the dew factor, then why is he bowling the part timers? Also, really? He TOLD Reza to bowl a bouncer after Reza nicely pitched 5 balls up for only 5 runs? Did he not learn from his IPL famous over?? I hope he's just saying that just to back up his players. Because I'd rate to think that an experienced bowler such as himself thinks like this.
