    No reason for Jadeja to bat ahead of these two.

    That Dinda/Ishant decision at the end of their innings, not bowling UV and then not pushing himself up the order.
    Yeah Dhoni has to bat at 5. No matter what. Or even higher. He's the only one in form.

    Either play him as a bowler or get him out.

    We are better off with UV/Raina filling in the overs, and a extra bat.

    Maybe Pathan when he comes in could lead to playing 5 bowlers alongside Ashwin, Kumar and Jadeja but not now.

    Well that was an odd, odd bit of cricket.

    who's going to make the violins?

    Bowling has been awful. 325 was too much.

    I thought Dhoni would have batted higher purely because of the left/right combo he so likes - he could have broken up two lefties (Yuvraj and Raina).

    I say we should get 325 with our ODI batting in subcontinent conditions.

    I feel bad for Ishant Sharma.

    Started out as a potential great in Australia and has been reduced to an ordinary bowler.

    But then I don't blame Ishant for this misery. He is working hard but there is no one to guide him in the right direction.

    Fast bowlers need very good mentors/managers, or else they are nothing. Wasim and Waqar had Imran Khan, Ambrose and Walsh had Marshall.

    He is just dumb tbh. His fault.

    Had all the tools, but just hasn't been able to improve on them or acquire the cleverness to take wickets.

    **** I hate watching death batting. **** batsmen hacking the ball all over the place and getting runs for it.
