India ‘Trounce’ Australia by 8 Runs?
How does beating a team by a margin of mere 8 runs amount to trouncing it? Ask Hindustan Times. Here’s a screenshot (the concerned headline is first from the bottom):
Being the smart guys that they are, they have now replaced ‘Trounce’ with ‘Stun’. I can’t even begin to think of what adverb they’d have come up with had India won the match by, say, 100 runs.
BTW, lest I forget, congratulations India for getting one up against the Aussies. One down, three to go!
