Lee doing a bit of a Harmison here
Not looking good for Australia here. Given that the pitch is meant to be a good bowling one, and the whole 'dew factor,' we really need to get them out for a low score, and I daresay 2/123 after 27 overs wasn't what Australia was hoping for.
What the hell is Sehwag thinking with that shot?
Damn! Sehwag out
Sehwag gone, nice bowl from Johnson.
Rest In Peace Craigos
I assume Yuvraj Singh is injured, is he not?
Great delivery from Johnson - swinging at close to 90mph and a leftie is quality
Sehwag chanced his arm and hit some great shots but was really tied down once they bowled at the stumps
Big period now
3 down now - Sehwag plumb to Johnson. So far the pitch has been described as a good one though, and the dew factor ought to affect them more than us.Originally Posted by andyc
Not too worried at this point - if India go on and make 270, 280+ I might be pretty concerned, but there's plenty of time here for a collapse.

Yes, he is injured.Originally Posted by PhoenixFire

The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
Theres plenty of time and wicket for them to get there too.Originally Posted by Slow Love™
From this point 132/3 i would back india to score atleast 260. I have got this great feeling that dhoni is gonna smash it around the park today? and take india to 280+.
Wasim Akram: The most sKiLlFuL bowler in history!
Mcgrath said he is fond of the genius "Akram would power through the crease and do whatever he wanted with the old and new ball"
Allan Border "If I ever get a chance to be reborn as a cricketer, I would want to be Wasim"
Richards, Tendulkar and Waugh described Akram as the most dangerous bowler they had ever faced.

The lack of singles and twos in the Indian innings in the middle overs is worrying. There's no shortage of batting here, when you've got a genuine batsman yet to step in, but they're playing out way too many dot balls. The Australian bowling attack is rather inexperienced, while Kaif and Dravid have been around for a long time. They can't afford to let this carry on till the 40th over, else we'll see lots of reckless batting past that phase.
Nitpicks: Notice the crunching sound each time the ball hits the pitch before it reaches the batsman?
"Talent is nothing without opportunity"
"You're not remembered for aiming at the target, but hitting it"
Twenty20 used to be boring.
8 runs saved by the stumps this inning. 153-3. 270 most likely from here.
Yea I notice that too, when I'm looking at laptop and I hear that I get scared thinking a wicket fellOriginally Posted by Arjun
The Indians have already found a target: Andrew Symonds.
When the Indians come out to bowl, they'll be a bowler down. The big question is how they'll handle the spare ten overs. If dew is a factor, we wouldn't expect any of the part-time bowlers to last longer than three overs, making it a weak area in the bowling lineup.
