    We may win we may lose but it is indeed great to be talked about as the favorite to win a world cup.

    Well India rarely bring their A game when facing minnows in one day cricket so I'll be a bit nervous in both games. Can't really see Bangladesh beating us, their battery of left arm spin will struggle against Gambhir, Raina, Sharma, Dhoni and the brothers Pathan. However, if there's a bit of grass on the surface, Ireland could do to us what they did to Pakistan in the 07 Woolmergate match. I reckon Bangladesh Ireland will be actually be a really good match, cheap tickets might be worth a day out if you're nearby.

    India is not going to qualify for super eight. Bangladesh and Ireland will go from Group A. They will loose their first game against Bangladesh. And Ireland will beat them too. I will be very upset to see that. But that's the fact.

    Bangladesh are a decent T20 team and India will need to play well against them. Ireland are alright at it too. An upset here would be more likely than in an ODI. Still pretty unlikely though

    Most of the Indian players are already too tired by Playing IPL. So, they will loose both games and go back home.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I like this guy. Rasel FTW.

    I really can't see anything other than 2 easy wins for India and Bangladesh to win a close 1 over Ireland.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    Dhoni has GOT TO stop coming in at 3 when you already have Raina in great form to play there... He has got to get it out of his head that he cannot come in and start hitting straight away.



    And Ravindra Jadeja is not a natural stroke maker... It is difficult for him to play the big shots... He is very talented, so they may come off every now and then but it is not natural for him and there are others who are better at it than him. I would rather see him play ODIs and Tests before T20s... Looks like the #5 India may need in ODIs...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    This stage should be cake for us which is why I'm hoping we're getting as much out of the warm ups as possible. Really would hate to get into the later rounds without being properly tested. Need some adversity on the way if we're winning this.

    So after both the warm ups this is what I believe should be the team for Saturday's game

    V. Sehwag
    G. Gambhir
    S. Raina
    Y. Singh
    R. Sharma
    M.S. Dhoni (Please do not come earlier)
    Y. Pathan
    H. Singh
    Z. Khan/R.P. Singh
    P. Ojha
    I. Sharma

    Zaheer will play if he is fit, else replace with RP. That guy is also not bowling great but lets see if he can recapture the form of 2007.

    Irfan Pathan should not play. His half trackers can be hit by his own mother all over the park. PK also seems to lose it under pressure (also I hate seeing him shout at everyone else after bowling the crapppiest possible delivery). In the case pitch is for seamers PK should replace Ojha.

    Pretty good batting line up. Should do well if they dont become over confident.

    Sound arguments there but no way is Dhoni gonna go in without a 3rd seamer.
