    Btw, good news for Australia, i read Ponting's article in TOI today and he wrote that he would probably be fit in time to play in the 3rd Odi.
    That's awesome news!

    The question of 2,4 or 6 ODI's is a no-brainer. There would be no reason that anybody could come up with that meant an even number of ODI's were scheduled, as the chances of having a drawn series would be much, much bigger.

    Haha, I picked up on your sarcasm, but I don't think pup11 did, and his post was the one I responded to.

    Indian batsmen are a "scared species", making them an easy prey for the Australian pace battery in the upcoming ODI series, feel former Australian bowlers Ray Bright and Rodney Hogg.

    Former pacers Hogg and Bright, a left-arm spinner of the 70's, felt the Indians would not get much of a home advantage in the seven-match series starting September 29.

    "Well I say, Good Luck. Which they (India) would need," Hogg was quoted as saying by Neo Sports.

    "Unfortunately India tends to play Bangladesh a lot, so they tend to stretch up cricket," said Bright as he took potshot at the Indian line-up.

    Hogg described the Indian batsmen as "arrogant" and said they were scared of facing pacers. "Couple of Indian batsmen are scared species, might be slightly arrogant and certainly there is no way to hide when people like Clark are going to go to India. With their pace there's nowhere to hide," he said.

    Former Australian batsman Gary Cosier echoed a similar view and said Indians would buckle under pressure when faced with an accurate attack.

    "Australia's bowlers and fieldsmen have impacts and they tend to put so much pressure on these very, very good players that the result is not very good at the end of the game," Cosier said.

    Hogg criticised the decision to bring back Sourav Ganguly into the team and said the ex-captain has been brought back only because of "political" clout.

    "He just probably had political numbers that's why he's back in their squad. That's why Greg felt like he was playing too much just for himself," he said.

    Bright also felt that both Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar were past there prime. "The Tendulkars and Gangulys are not perhaps the players they were five years ago."
    Bright and Cosier said if Indians wanted to do well in the series, they would have to improve their fielding drastically.

    "Well I think they've got to really back themselves and I'm not sure if they are as positive as they have been and they still need to work on their fielding that's been to me a very poor example of how one day cricket should be played," said Bright.

    "They need to field exceptionally well and they need players who are on the border of not playing too much longer," Cosier added.

    Haha - Hogg never struck me as particularly bright. Say what you like about why Ganguly got back into the team, since he's been back he's certainly earned his spot.

    Indian batsman didn't look like a sacred species yesterday, and why is he calling Clark pacy if anything there is good chance he might get hammered on the Indian tracks, age has probably catched up with Hogg and Bright, they hardly make any sense!

    what a joke..those two should hand themselves... indian batsmen will be tough

    but i sorta agree that they are ageing a bit.. the top order anyway..the middle order has young guns

    As everyone said i am really looking forward to the odi series, frankly speaking i have got bored with T20 (though yesterday's game was great) it has become predictable with all these 4's and 6's and ugly slogs, i just wanna see some proper cricket being played.

    yea agreed

    im sick of batsmen slogging and when bowlers get 'cheap wickets'...need to watch some proper batting

    i wonder if all these t20s will influence how the ODI cricket is played
