    I was pleased when I was at Lord's to see that the boundaries were out to the edge, rather than brought in the way they had them when I went to a Middx match.

    Has pretty much affected the IPL spoiled Indians. Was heartbreaking to watch one of Raina's off side scoops against WI landing thwack some 20 metres from the rope and the fat lad scrambling for a double, after initially refusing to run believing it would go for a six.

    He made several mistakes in this T20 WC...

    First - he didnt allow Raina to sattle down as International No.3 in this tourney by sending himself at No.3 - Raina never got the chance to bat ahead of the important stage...

    Second - his combinations has not worked properly, today RP was denied his last over and in last game Irfan should have completed his quota of 4 when he was bowling well...

    Third - Jadeja ahead of Yuvraj in a very serious game...hope his ploy does well for India though!

    I think Jadeja at four is a good call here. Yuvraj is most likely to be the man who wins this game and he is most effective against an older, softer ball. Jadeja is here for the platform... and possibly because the seniors don't want to get hit and WHAT THE **** IS PIETERSEN BOWLING FOR?

    Get the feeling Collingwood doesn't like Swann. This is a bad decision the same as bringing Yuvraj on was

    Madness to bring on KP, surely even Wright would have made more sense the way they're playing the short ball

    Presumably the nickname 'Colly' comes from having a cauiliflower for a brain.
    Completely bizarre. No reason for it at all.

    Colly has to squeeze a couple of overs in from the part-timers at some point. Time will tell whether this was the right moment, I guess.
