    England vs India

    I'm currently watching India vs England and boy this kid Blackwell is going well

    Currently 211-5 off 44.1. overs. England have made a good fight back after a superb opening spell of bowling by India! :O

    It's a pity the forum was down for the build-up to this game - has any game been more eagerly awaited on here?

    England Played well recovering from a bad start as James has stated earlier Blackwell gave a real good show but got run out in the end , he did well supporting knight and stewart and irani and England reached 269/7 .

    But India's reply was stronger, the first 3 overs went by , by singles , but then Sehwag started opening his account started hitting 3 4's and 2 4;s in an over , hit caddick all around the park the score at the moment is
    V.Sehwag 101 79 balls 17 fours 1 six
    S.Ganguly 41 58 balls 3 fours 1 six

    India is Currently in a winning position at 153/0 in 22.2 overs at a r.rate of 6.85 ( its been around that till now ) 115 needed to win at a rate of 4.23


    Its good that India went on to chase and started of really well , they showing some signs of improvement , but the bowling department needs more improvement , maybe they should take Kumble out and Bring in either Bangar or Yadav that would be better for India another useful seam bowler / batsmen or a speciliast keeper who can be a useful bat

    Exciting match , Sehwag playing Some minty shots and Ganguly doing real well on just being there as a support , good batting by both !

    However its not over , Until its actually Over !

    Well.. we were slaughtered.

    Only Ian Blackwell played to his potential. Hussain played like someone who'd had part of his brain (erm.. most) removed, and when 10-0-54-0 (Hoggard) looks good by comparison, well...

    Anyway, we were missing: Collingwood, Vaughan, Thorpe, Gough and Flintoff.

    If you took Yuvraj, Sehwag, Tendulkar, Zaheer and Kaif away from India, I think things would have been somewhat different.

    Anyway, it's February soon and a certain grudge rematch in South Africa.

    LOL, I will give them alot of respect if they win this cup from their current situation. Having to beat SA/SL and Aus will take some doing.

    India did well, Ganguly really seems to be turning the corner, both as a batsman (doing captaincy) and a captain. Whoever England were missing, a win is a win, and chasing 270 in less than 40 overs is quite remarkable. Its such a ontrast from the late 80s england team, when it was perhaps the best ODI team but not that good in tests.

    Of the four teams left in the tournament, India probably has the least chance but still I wont count them out just yet, its ODi and the conditions favor their batsmen.

    Hi Roy, quite a change to see you praising Ganguly. The Indian batting is quite awesome right now, however, the bowling leaves much to be desired and against teams like Aus and SL will prove to be much more of a liability than now. The batsmen have been covering up for the bowlers till now. Let's see how far it goes.

    Yes the bowling has to improve, but the new ball attack showed some promise today although they couldn't sustain the pressure.The other problem is that the spinners(Kumble and Harbhajan) aren't controlling the middle overs.Kumble isn't the same force and Harbhajan isn't the best one day bowler as he is more of an attacking bowler then someone who can contain a batting lineup.
    Flames are welcome, but beware of the *Backdraft *

    yep!!.. feels so wonderful!!

    not often do you see India chasing 270 and winning with 10 overs to spare

    we did defeat SA and Aus in the last edition of the tournament..

    i hope the men in blue repeats that...

    and yes.. the bowling was not quite good by India apart from Zaheer and Nehra, they cannot afford to give away 270 runs from 7/2...

    also, Hussain played a horrible short innings yesterday... a captain could have done way better!

    Yes Nasser Hussain played like... crap.
    I have seen Fleming play similar innings. It really is an odd thing for a captain to do - play irresponsibly

    So where are the English fans now? Mark7 and Neil?

    Ur so called quality team that u have often praised so high was thrashed by
    India. Please recall, i had claimed that India will easily beat England and that England are no contest to us, i have been proven right

    Havaskar
    As for India being the greatest, there are not so stop babbling about it.WE never claimed that India is the best, ihave alwaysmaintained that they areamong the top 4.I for one rank SA well above India, and as far as Aus is concerned, noone comes near them

    England cric are fragile, they will always have fitness problems, besides even had they played, England would have still lost.

    Its not English batting that failed, its their bowling(as was the case in Natwest too).
    Gough is the lone English class bowler, but he alone can do all the work.Apart
    from him, all others are crap.


    The rematch in WC would end up in same result, England simply aren't good enough for the Indians!

    Erm, I'll think you'll find we were onhere straight after the game congratulating India actually.

    Not praised so much as said that the 2 sides are close - I don't know how many times I have to say this but these games are all one off, over a period of time the 2 teams are close (in the last 10 matches it's India 5 England 4 and 1 rained off).

    SWALLOW<>SUMMER!!
