Yusuf’s blazing ton flattens New Zealand

They said he couldn’t perform in international cricket. They said he was good only for IPL and domestic cricket.

He proved them wrong tonight. Yusuf Pathan engineered an improbable win for India with a violent hundred, his first in ODIs, and perhaps sealed a World Cup berth for himself. It looked grim for India when they were tottering at 188 for 5 in the 34th over, after the fall of Rohit Sharma, but Pathan pulled off a heist. One game doesn’t guarantee a successful future of course, especially considering that this New Zealand attack wasn’t potent enough to provide a stern test of his weakness against short balls, but Pathan left his past behind with a potentially career-changing innings on a drizzly Bangalore night.  His century overshadowed a superbly-crafted 98 from James Franklin that had allowed New Zealand to reach a daunting total.
