Butta-fingers

I never thought I'd see the day when Dravid and Laxman, both very good slip fielders, would drop vital catches. The one by Dravid in the morning of Katich did not hurt India so much in terms of runs as time. But the second one could hurt India even more. Johnson is a very dangerous #10 (as India have found both at Perth and Mohali, when he held up their victory charges with a mixture of firm defense and clean hitting). Sharma had him cleaned up with a fast bowler's dream: a quick short ball first up, followed by one that was nicked to slip, where none other than VVS put it down. Its at times like these that no one would want to be a bowler.
