I didn't see it I'm afraid, Jono, I can't really comment.
I can comment on his decision to bat first: it was abysmal.

@ Jono - Praveen Kumar has been a disappointment. He has got the support of swing but has been bowling terrible lines. His discipline is seriously lacking.
I would have played RP instead. With cloud cover and swing on offer, he would have been good.
Yes Praveen Kumar has been disappointing today, yet his figures are 8-0-34-0. You'd take that.
To me that says Australia haven't batted THAT well.
I feel if one replaced Ponting's name with Dravid, he would have been criticised for that knock.
If Australia's innings ends now, India's target in 42 overs is 263. If its reduced to 20 overs then 153. I have asked our people at the ground for further updates about the rain. Stay tuned, be patient.

JMAS- What a guy
Have you been tested?
In memory of Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW
In that case, I hope it just keeps raining til the match is abandoned...

Nah, D/L is generally very generous to teams batting second. 153 in 20 should be easy for India I reckon.
I don't see play resuming though.
So India's chances of making it to the semi-finals are in the hands of Pakistan in that case.
20 overs and 153 is pretty cool. Lets go for it then
Lemme pray for the rain to stop
India can pretty easily chase it down IMHO.
CricZo XI - Draft League
Season 1 M Hayden, G Gooch, R Dravid, W Hammond, K Pietersen, G Sobers, R Marsh (wk), R Benaud (c), D Steyn, W Hall, N Adcock
Season 2 J Hobbs, B Richards, D Boon, H Taylor, C Lloyd (c), A Stewart (wk), T Goddard, A Davidson, H Tayfield, C Ambrose, H Griffith
Season 3 H Sutcliffe, M Hayden, I Chappell (c), G Pollock, A Faulkner, M Hussey, D Lindsay (wk), I Botham, A Kumble, M Marshall, D Lillee
So if this is rained off, India will beat the West Indies, leaving them with 1 win from 2 games, so we'll have to beat Pakistan to make sure it doesn't come down to NRR. Currently a pretty decent gap in NRR's between India and Aus though (2.080).
Should definitely be looked at ASAP, it could get pretty bad if something like this happened in a semi-final.Tony Lewis, of Duckworth and Lewis, has emailed giving us the correct permutation. A newer version of the software was implemented for this tournament, which Tony has. Per the new WinCODA2 software being used by Tony and the scorers in South Africa, India's target will be 266 in 42 overs. Thanks for that Tony. Appreciated. And no, this system apparently does not take into consideration Powerplays.
pls get Hughes in for Watson.
Dream XI: M Hyder, J Linker, M Clock, S Wetsin, A Simms, A Golcrhist, B Hugg, S Worde, B Leap, J Giuseppe, G MacGrith
