    Gambhir is never the same player without Sehwag. And please short ball at 150 kmph can trouble 95% of the batsman..
    We should not be chasing any target. We should be defending it. Our batsman are trying to go after every ball because RRR gets to 10 runs per over in no time.

    If we bat first then we can score atleast 170 withno pressure of RRR.(Required run rate)

    And please if India is not a good side because of reliance on Sehwag, then what happened to your side against India without Mcgrath. I remember plenty of Aussie writing rubbish execuse that Australia side of 2003/04 that played against India in OZ was not test class because of absence of Mcgrath .

    And you are telling me not to be defensive.
    Stop saying "your" side to Andy. This isn't a me vs. you, or you vs. Andy forum. If you want it to be, then **** off to another message board.

    Stop being so damn defensive and bringing nationality into this.

    If you think Social,'s post was ****ing stupid (which it was), then don't bring Australia into the argument. Just tell him it was stupid and why.

    Yeah, but knowing SA they'll have Aus needing 20 off the last over with Clarke on strike and him finishing it with 4 sixes.

    There's no guarantee they'll make the semis given their form against England with bat, ball and in the field. And their opening combination is diabolical. Smith and Kallis shouldn't be playing T20.

    Thirdman, see GingerFurball's post here. Posts like these which are completely unrelated to the topic, and only an attempt to rile up other members are not acceptable.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    And posts like India did not deserve to win the T20 WC 2007 are acceptable.

    Depends how they are argued. If you don't think they are, report them. Do not get into a shouting match.

    I never said that "India did not deserve to win"

    What I said, in very abbreviated terms, was that if it was as simple as the favourites winning every match, then neither India or Pakistan would've won the first 2 WCs as neither side was the first choice

    Social if that's what you meant, I apologise for my earlier comments

    Incredibly vague statement though. Its dangerous to try and steal one of our rare World Cup victories away from us Indians

    We clearly shouldn't have won 1983 WC, but that's what made it so awesome to so many people to actually win it. If you're the overwhelming favorites and you win, it's a lot less memorable and fun than if you're the underdog.

    True

    I'm sort of enjoying this tourney because I still dont regard Oz as the favourites, still dont expect them to win and, let's face it, we've been pretty gash in this format despite having some reasonable players so any win is a bonus
