India Blue finish on 381-6 ... completely ravaged the bowling attack.
Looking forward to watching a) Pathan bowl b) Ganguly bat c) Raina bat.
He's always hiding at deep fine leg or whatever that useless fielding position is.Originally Posted by Jono
Man I wanna see how Ganguly handles this chase. If he gets them anywhere close it'd be awesome.
Agreed as usual.Originally Posted by Jono
The Greens have already lost this match. They don't have the firepower in their batting. There's the unproven Pravin Kumar and Piyush Chawla, and of course, Ganguly, but except Pravin, none of them can explode into a bowling attack.
Talking of Pravin, one can only hope he learns something here– never bowl short to tall batsmen (Irfan swatting his short deliveries to the fence, leg-side), never bowl short or length in the final overs (25+ runs in the last two overs he bowled), NEVER OVER-STEP (three no-balls, and the last ball was hitfor a four by Agarkar). It's been a dreadful day for him and all other strikers, owing to the brilliant form of Sachin and the dumb bowling changes by Kaif. Hopefully he'll get five wickets in the next match.

Twenty20 used to be boring.
Kris Srikkanth is hilarious. He said of Rohan Gavaskar 'The Bengal boy says Bengal bowlers bowled well' and then realised his mistake 'Don't worry, you'll make the Bengal side this season'.
Oh brother, Agarkar opens the bowling. Greets Ganguly with a bouncer, called a wide. I wouldn't be surprised if Ganguly, Jaffer and Kumar take the little bloke to the cleaners.
Fours - one off Munaf and two off Agarkar. All on the off side. All typical Ganguly. Good stuff.
BRING BACK ZAHEER KHAN! Two balls wide outside off-stump bowled by the team's premier, experienced strike bowler. Both smashed to the fence by Ganguly. "If you don't want me back, at least get your choice of strike bowler right!"
ADD-ON: Munaf is cranking up pace, but he's bowling to the pads once too often. He has to bowl very well to keep value-added bowlers like Sharma, Bangar, Powar and Kumar off his place, since his batting is put to no use and he can't field too well.

WTF - Bhajji at second slip?
As long as you compare Sharma, Bangar and Kumar to Munaf as bowlers, no one will take you seriously. As for Agarkar, he has matured a lot recently. We'll see how Zaheer does in the next match, I'd like to see him back as well if he can do well there.Originally Posted by Arjun
Agarkar has been very good and there is no way he should be out of the team if that is being implied!
381...damn thats good. Great 100 by Sachin, 4 6's and 20 4's...amazing. Good support by Dhoni, Dravid(who batted where he belongs) and Pathan.
Can't say anything about the Green bowling.
Ganguly is opening and past 20...**** I made a bet with my friend that he will get out for less than 20...o well...I just hope he doesnt score anymore runs cause as much as I liked him in the past, I hate him as much now and he doesn't deserve to be on the team anymore.
I actually wanted him to do well here for some reason. He looked really focused. Come on Raina, show your stuff.
