Credit where credit's due, That Indian side was actually pretty decent I thought.....they had beaten the West Indies 2-1 away, won the Natwest trophy and the CT going into the World Cup. And more importantly they had excellent team spirit and were a very united team under Wright and Ganguly, something they totaly lacked in 2007.
They totally bottled it in the final but I feel Ganguly totally lost the plot when he put the Aussies in. Although Their three pronged pace attack was in good nick, India's strength is their batting and I would have had first crack at the Aussie bowling attck.
