    Just look at how he was targeted in the middle of the Cook/Pietersen partnership, they just pushed it towards Tendulkar and set off for an easy single. He was a very good fielder in his youth but age has caught up with him. Still better than Zaheer and Sehwag though to be fair to him.

    How poor is 20/20 cricket ?!?!?

    It really is awful. I can't understand for the life of me why anybody would prefer watching a slogfest over the true test of the game in the longer format. India needs to open its eyes.

    Well it's only fair, considering the infamous "8-0" sig was a cumulative count.

    Tendulkar: Wo hoo, revenge complete.


    Dhoni: As this victory shows, there is nothing wrong with Indian cricket.

    You can't compare 5 days of test cricket with 50 overs, for a start he'd probably be fielding in the slips for the first 10-15 overs in any case. And he's hardly someone you have to "hide away" in the field. Also on what basis are you saying his batting is not good enough to making up on the field? He's barely played any limited overs cricket over the last few years. Can't use test match failures to judge limited overs performance. India have been ranked top 4 and above for the longest time in limited overs cricket, despite "4 or 5 poor fielders", so India can more than compete with the best (in fact they have been doing so since the last few years).

    Having a look at the big bash etc, you can't help but think Australia and the WI should be favourites for the T20 WC.


    The aussie batting lineup looks lethal for T20 atm, watching the Indian game, they'd give that bowling lineup a fair flogging imo.

    Finch, Warner, Watson,M. Hussey, D.Hussey, Maxwell, Wade.

    I mean, good luck against that.................. every single one of them can put the ball out of the ground....

    Finch, Warner, Watson and Hussey are just about all in the top 10 in the world atm.

    And as for the WI, Pollard, Gayle, Samuels, Narine........ nuff said.

    Doesn't look like Hales (or for that matter Lumb or Patel) will be playing any IPL. Notts coach Newell says they can't go.

    Seems Contra and Sachin have got their wish and Sachin apparently to play the England and Pakistan ODI's to tune up for the Australia test series.
