    Mishra should have played in the last game.

    WOW Hussey is playing well
    Currently Australia are 143/2 in 27 overs
    means they can score around 280
    that's a good news for Pakistan, cuz then it will be a close game, therefore NNR wont kick Pakistan out of the tournament
    by the way PAINE played well
    & for me Nehra & Mishra bowled well

    It looks like Australia will get a total near 300 and this is a fairly average batting lineup with a ridiculously weak lower order with Mishra at 7 and Bhajji at 8. My guess is that India will be sent packing tonight. I know that Sehwag and Yuvraj help with the bowling and Zaheer helps a bit with the batting but even with a full-strength team, we need at least one more bowler who can bat a bit. And without a genuine all-rounder we really can't afford to pick 5 bowlers especially when most of them are so mediocre anyway. And ultimately it's no use complaining about injuries. These days one or two injuries are common and there is no telling when you get a third. We simply need a deeper bench with 2-3 bowlers who can contribute with the bat and in the field. There is no way we can be no.1 with the likes of RP Singh and Nehra in the mix.

    Of course the really depressing thing is that after a year of promise, Ishant Sharma is looking increasingly like yet another entry into SS's infamous wheel of mediocrity. I still have some hope that he is in fact the real thing at least in test cricket but at the moment it's looking a bit bleak.

    Seeing Hussey bat at four just makes it harder again to argue that Clarke merits a spot atm...

    On the other hand, Hussey's found some form!

    With 8 wickets in hand, I would normally expect the score at 30 overs to be doubled at 50 overs. Aussies should look for 320.

    Nehra, it seems, may be India's most valuable player in the Champions Trophy. He's done rather well since his recall, bar one match. Getting him back was, in hindsight, a really good move- in nine matches, he's got really good figures. Given India's seam bowling woes, this has been a really smart move.

    Now a direct hit gets out Ponting!

    Fair enough! BTW, I'm not suggesting 320 is easily within reach, just that form this point, Aussies should push for 320.
