I do not know why people who have not played this game at the top most level are being asked for their 'expert' opinions. When Shikhar Dhawan himself had clearly mentioned in the post match interview that they were 20 runs short then who is Shishir to impose his personal opinion insinuating Pathan's over as the reason for losing this match. Before Pathan came onto bowl 9th over by Mishra went for 11 runs 10th over by Sharma went for 13 runs so they had scored 24 runs from two overs and brought the run rate down from 8.91 to 8.33 the batsman were already set for the finish. Henrique bowled one good over for 5 runs and Pathan was inserted by Shikhar knowing well he went for 16 runs in his first over. And the way Pathan bowled it was not sure if was bowling to take a wicket or just contain something that the captain should be clear about before asking the bowler to bowl. Only Bhuvi had a standout performance. SRH lost to mediocre score and captaincy period.
