This just doesn't seem to get over for us. It was another thrilling encounter where we snatched the win from the jaws of the defeat. It was the last over of the game and we needed 16 runs to win.
Obviously, odds were stacked up against us. Things got worse when we could only manage two run in the first three balls and lost a wicket as well. But playing his first game in the season, Dwayne Smith showed great character and self belief to get us through. He has just joined the team as a replacement for injured Mitchell Johnson and has immediately left an impact on the side.
We have won quite a few matches like this and the good thing is that every match has revealed a new side of the player and one more hand has risen in critical situation. I don't deny the fact that far too many close matches are not good for your nails, but as long as we are finishing on the right side of the result we don't mind them.
At the same time, I won't deny the fact that we could have avoided this situation. Sachin Tendulkar was at his best and that is great news for the side. He played some vintage shots to give us the solid platform, to chase the total. Rohit Sharma played another cameo and he really regretted that fact that he couldn’t finish the game.
