    I'm a bit split on Kaif. He's played fairly smartly, IMO, and at times I don't think he's found it easy out there. He's played a few lofted shots lately that might have been caught, though I don't think he was that worried, and might have been willing to sacrifice his innings for someone with better tools to score at a really high rate. But the stable partnership between Kaif and Dravid was quite important, I think.

    And as I write this, Kaif is bowled by Lee...

    Kaif is in real danger of getting bogged down and he's trying to hit the ball to hard. he just needs to give the strike to Dhoni, who'll either smash it all over, do a go-slow like he did last match, or just get out. Hopefully he'll smack Symonds all ove the park and do well.

    EDIT: he's out, fool.

    Both batsman are defending right now, which is pretty stupid. Raina not scoring which is making me mad. I understand you are new, but there are eight overs left! And you have less than 200 on the board!

    Right, so if they were slogging, how come they only took 17 from his 3 overs then, especially with so many wickets in hand...

    I say if you're under pressure, you have to try hit your way out of it if it's at this stage of the game. If that doesn't work, he needs to give the strike to Dhoni. You can't afford to block at this level.

    It makes me think. If a country of more than 1 Billion people, why can't India find a better batsman that Raina. I understand that he's only 19, but surely there's an older vet than would be a better player than him.

    The last thing we need is to be 220 all out. He is the last batsman left. Its okay if he takes a couple of balls to get his bearings rather than go hell for leather right away

    Good shot by Raina for 4(Finally) and then he defends.

    Not sure it'd be a good idea to try and get a 10th over out of Watson at this stage - he looks like he's had it.

    Raina seems to be getting on my last nerve by not hitting.

    This is shocking. Dot balls are played out by Raina. Even Brett Lee has come back in his third spell well by some dreadful batting. This slow batting just defeats the purpose of playing an extra batsman.

    Fair enough that the England games affect his record but they are still List A games.
    For comparability though, the others are all solely domestic figures, so showing Saj's domestic figures is fair enough.

    Put Bracken and McGrath on in the last few overs, they've been Aus best bowlers.
