    Is that suppose to change the fact that they played horribly towards end? They should have won it easily but instead they got themselves into a position where they could have lost it, and that wasn't because India did anything special.

    Good game.

    Tbh only the final will be meaningful between WI and India. These games are pretty trivial.

    West Indies is the Damn Favorite I thought. But today's match was not a good indication for Them. Hard fought win. But they have a home soil advantage......

    The Great Shivnarine Chanderpaul in for Devon Smith then!

    Though I agree with your post, I must say that Chris Gayle can bat sensibly as well. We've become to know him as the most dangerous six hitter in the world, but he can do more than that. On various occasions I've seen him simply stay around the RRR, while chasing a modest target.

    Only tuned in for the last 30 minutes. Why was the sexy Kohli captain near the end? Dhoni hurt?

    yep. Dhoni was injured while Batting. So He didn't take the field. And for this chance Sexy Virat took charge & Led India to the Loss.

    The classic Gayle example was at Adelaide a few years ago in a test match, he carried his bat for 160 odd and batted patiently for the whole day, it can be done, but lately I see the WI batsmen always trying to hit their way out of both winning and losing situations.

    India-SL now. Sri Lanka still unscathed. Now here comes the overhyped "Sir sri sri pandit" Jadeja.

    PS. Gavaskar. SHUT. UP.

    I think this match has pretty much proven that Kohli is a poor and disruptive influence on India, time to go I reckon.

    I'm not sure this tournament is really worth taking seriously. It's not a marquee ICC event. It is an obvious promotional activity for an Indian mobile phone company. We saw the phone explode onto the cricket field as a 'special feature'.

    Actually, I know it shouldn't be taken too seriously. India have just won the Champions' Trophy, and should consolidate on it in the lead-up to the World Cup.
