were high India had to win it to stay alive in the series In those circumstances the team selection raised a lot of eyebrows Ajinkya Rahane was not picked and so wasn’t Mohit Sharma Ambati Rayudu and Axar Patel got a nod but both failed to disturb the scorers registering ducks The latter failed to impress with the ball too and returned with mediocre figures of 1/48 in his seven overs 2 Just starts: Shikhar Dhawan Virat Kohli and even skipper MS Dhoni got starts but failed to hang around While Dhawan wasn’t at his best during his stay in the middle Kohli and Dhoni looked good for the period they batted In any format it is important that a batsman converts a start and allows the rest to bat around him This didn’t happen on Sunday and India were bundled out for a paltry total 3 Miraculous Mustafizur: Mustafizur continued from where he left in the first ODI — 6/43 to follow up his 5/50 The young man didn’t do anything extraordinary He stuck to the plan of bowling those sharp off-cutters and bringing the odd one back into the right-hander Moreover he wasn’t afraid to execute the slower ones Dhoni was deceived by one of those The very next ball was a straighter one to Axar Patel who was caught off-guard and plumb in front 4 Ashwin lone ranger: India played three spinners on Wednesday But despite that Men in Blue were left searching for someone who could ably complement the front-line spinner Ravichandran Ashwin If Jadeja impressed with an economy of 4 then he lacked a wicket-taking strategy On the other hand Axar grabbed a wicket only to leak runs The spinning trio never fired in unison 5 Aggressive Mashrafe: Mashrafe Mortaza had played for Bangladesh long enough in ODI cricket but his cricketing brain has been an absolute revelation so far Having six fielders

Yash Chopra is not just about snow capped mountains but also has a fascinating architectural history The real Switzerland according to Jhaveri lives in the beautiful small towns and villages “Fever

Jhaveri a former army personnel who has written a book I Romantic As for selecting Switzerland the director said that the story needed backdrops which were isolated to add to the mystery and eeriness Jhaveri who shot there over a period of 40 days said that Switzerland is a very friendly country and though it does not give subsidies to film shoots there is a lot of infrastructural support that the government provides “The best part is that once you get the permission to shoot you don’t have to pay for shooting in public places like gardens or on public transport like trains trams buses etc That’s a big thing because we have to pay huge sums elsewhere when shooting at such locations But hiring shooting equipment is three times more expensive and manpower 10 times more expensive to hire than in India So it’s best to take manpower from here and hire equipment from Germany which is cheaper Also shooting after 9 pm is a problem because the Swiss are very particular that civillian life
