Poor Patel

OK, time for a giggle. Two dropped catches in two balls? And Flintoff both times? The wheels are coming off spectacularly. In the first case, Sehwag could probably have left the catch for Dravid and in the second, Kumble dropped a very straightforward chance. This hot, humid, still day at the Wankhede has started badly, and this bizarre implosion by the Indian side is going to cook nicely in the heat. In terms of responses to a match situation, this ranks right up there amongst the worst (I write this as Pathan 'catches' Flintoff off Patel, and walks right back over the bounday ropes, handing Flintoff his third six, and inducing something close to an emotional meltdown from Patel; poor chap, he's been taken off now).
