    Thought Australia's bowling tactics today were pretty dumb. They continued to bowl short even though it was quite obvious it wasn't causing any discomfort to the batsmen. Huge confidence booster for India. Do think they need to bring in Unadkat and one of Mohit Sharma/Dhawal Kulkarni for Vinay and Ishant.

    India - Take a bow.

    Australia - Having been at the receiving end of the biggest 4 chases in ODI history, take a good look at yourselves.
    Do you realise those games are spread out over quite a few years?

    Hard to see India repeating they're 2011 victory with their current bowling unit. Australia have come out of their funk and looking a solid bet right now (or not seeing as they are favourites) although there seems to be a lot of movement in their team. Need to settle on a lineup but that seems unlikely in the short term with the fixture gridlock and injuries- but still looks to have impressive depth.
    Kind of what was said about them in the leadup to WC 2011 as well.
    I think India do have a few other bowling options that have been untried e.g Mohit Sharma plus guys who are returning from injury and will probably be in the frame if fit - eg Varun Aaron so
    I wouldn't assume that the attack they are fielding in this series is what they'll go with in the WC.

    If you meant the commentary, I thought it was incisive compared with Senile Sentry's contributions to this thread.

    Not much as I was mostly watching the test match as that is more important.

    Kohli is a lot better than Sharma tbh. I think the latter is one of the waist high bully brigade.

    Chappelli has been banging on to get Rohit in the team because he's one of the few Indians who can play the short ball.

    Agree with you that Kohli is better, but we haven't seen rohit in the long form yet.

    Would Sharma be the Tendulkar replacement?

    Hope he gets a chance rather than going back to Yuvraj.

    Jealous of what?

    Only thing I jealous of is that it not my team playing at present and nearly everyone else is.

    Yeah, claiming Rohit as part of the waist high brigade is a bit stereotypical isn't it? I hope he gets the nod in the test team. At least innings like today prevent the usual ****s trying to argue a guy with no tests to his name has had plenty of chances , of which he's failed.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    It's an odd argument, the different formats one. If it was used in reverse, Australia would have discarded Bevan from ODIs after his test career faltered.

    Yeah and going on the last few months Finch would be making his test debut at Brisbane.

    Can see why Rohit is unlucky, got a ridiculous first class record and is still yet to play a test when Yuvraj and Raina have had loads of chances and done naff all. Guess the varying forms of filth they bowl swung it for them.
