Yuvraj Century Goes In Vain As Finch Hits Near Double

After winning the toss, Warne elected to bat first. At the one stage of the game ROW were at critical condition by losing 5 wickets with score below hundred. Then, Yuvraj took the responsibility on his shoulders and made a precious century that made his team cross 290 above score.
Another very interesting thing happened at the Lord’s -Yuvraj touches his role model, Sachin’s feet after scoring his century. Excluding Yuvraj no other batsmen of ROW taken the responsibility. Collingwood made handy 40 runs for his team. Saeed Ajmal bowled beautifully to take 4 wickets and his figures were impressive with 4 for 45.

After all set for a chase of 294, MCC lose the wickets but Australian hitter, Aaron Finch made a brilliant century to win the game. West Indies great batsmen, Brian Lara got out after making 23 runs and Shivnarine Chanderpaul is not out on 37.

Indian legendary batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Aaron Finch together added 107 run partnership for the first wicket. Sachin scored 44 runs with some beautiful drives on either side of the wicket. Finch made 67 and 122 run partnership with Lara and Chanderpaul. His blistering 181(23×4, 6×6) made MCC to win the game comfortably .

Everything happened well at Melbourne, Yuvraj is not been in best of his form but with this match he came to his original game play. The hitting was just amazing and after he reached his century, that was the great moment for him. Having Sachin in opposition and taking blessings from him is a different feeling.
