# Harbhajan's new age math

Mumbai vs. Pune: Harbhy wins the toss and elects to bat.

Jackers interviews both captains out in the middle right after the
toss.

Jackers: So Bhaji: There have been 4 games so far in Pune and the
captain winning the toss has always elected to bat. But only two of
those sides batting first have won the watch. That's only a 50%
success rate. What do you say about that?

Bhaji: Well, we hope to make it 75% tonight....

hehe.

Mumbia put only 120 runs on the board. They then restrict Pune to 119
and win.

120 is the lowest total ever by a side batting first and winning in an
IPL match played in India.

So, Harbhy wins - Proving once again that math is overrated :-)
