Yusuf amazes all....what a knock...!!!

After a superb Ranji final,we had another superb final this year,the Duleep Trophy final.West Zone,lead by Wasim Jaffer took on South Zone which was led by Dinesh Karthik.Karthik shoudn't have been there in the first place,as he should have been with the India Test Team.However,he took the oppurtunity with both hands,and smashed score of more than 150 in both innings.Both innings were full of class and helped South Zone to take a comprehensive lead.West Zone didn't bat well in the 1st innings except for Yusuf Pathan who was totally on fire.He smashed a superb 103 before getting out.With a lead of 150 even before starting their second innings,South went on to give a target of 536 runs.A massive total,which no one backed West to get.I was sure that they are going to lose the match.But,it was heroics of Yusuf Pathan which lead West to the title.Smashing 10 sixes,he made 210* off just 190 balls.Opener Chirag Pathak also made 130,however,his effort was overshadowed by Pathan.West Zone won with 3 wickets to spare.Yusuf showed tremendous mental toughness and determination in the historic run chase.It was the highest successful run chase in Domestic Cricket.
