Idiom of the Day
whole shooting match
the whole thing or the whole matter
I wanted to get rid of my videos and DVDs so I gave the whole shooting match to my friend.
Match : India V Australia
Venue : Bilateral test series, 2010 at Bangalore India
What a masterly effort from the master blaster. This was the month when he was conferred the ICC Cricketer of the Year award for the year 2010. After conceding 478 in the first innings, India was in a spot of bother at 38 for 2 before Sachin played a magical knock. His 214 was laced with 22 fours and 2 sixes. In the end, Aussies were left wondering why even 478 was not enough to win a test, India won by 7 wickets.
