Every pundit has rightly made us odds on favourites to win this match, that takes the pressure off us, and puts it on them.

No it doesn't. It means Holland has nothing to lose while India has everything to lose.

And what pressure do the Netherlands have exactly? They will be happy with a competetive showing. Nothing more.

i just hope sreesanth is not brought back into the team, anything else will do
I am expecting Sreesanth to be in for Munaf. It's a game against the minnows and I won't be surprised to see some changes.

Expecting Ashwin to get a game as well.

As long as the Netherlands get on the right bus to the ground I imagine this should be a walk on an escalator.

Should be an easy win for us. Wouldn't mind a good show from the dutch as long as we don't lose.

Holland have been obliterated in their last 2 matches, with the ICC reducing the number of teams in the next World Cup, people are asking severe questions about them and whether there is a place for such teams in these type of competetions.

Calling Yusuf Pathan to do something awesome tomorrow. The dutch do not have express fast bowlers to trouble him so he should do well hopefully and score a ridiculously fast 50/100.

If we bat first then we are a real chance to break the highest ever ODI score, Boycott said the Netherlands bowling attack is barely up to minor counties level, I shudder to think what we are going to do to their bowling attack.

I certainly think 450 is on and if we apply ourselves possibly 500.

Overboard. Would rather Dhoni, Yuvi, Kohli, Gambhir etc have more time in the middle than any big score.

Agree, making sure that our middle order get time in the middle is crucial before with the Semis and the final in mind!

Having said that it depends what we want from the game, the records are there to be be had if we want them! :)

Win win situation to be honest as far as our team is concerned!
