    Dropping Powar and picking all of Yuvraj, Kaif and Mongia was a mistake.

A wicket keeper who could bat in the top 4 would help!
    What would Pothas be like in that regard - anyone seen enough of him to comment?

    That would then lead to having one of Flintoff or Collingwood at 7 though...

    Singles are not going to work. The lack of power in the Indian batting lineup shows up again. Irfan may have his faults, but at least he can strike the ball hard. Now they're forced to strike against McGrath and a recovered Lee.

    A run out at this stage may help the Indian team rather than hurt.

    Fair play to Raina, at least he's trying to hit the ball now, rather than blocking it. His strike rate is over 60 now.

    If you call gentle cover-drives against Mitch 'hitting'.

    It's better than just blocking it. That 4 he hit against Bracken was a slog really.
