    I was just writing a post about how India should have won by a bigger margin. But I just checked the Cricinfo tables which have been updated really fast and it turns out they are actually ahead of NZ in terms of NRR. So if they beat SA they are through. Easier said than done of course.

    Dude our run rate is already well above NZL's. All we have to do is beat RSA tommorow, no need to worry about the run rate.

    Isn't it a weird equation though, you can win the game and your run rate can still go down?

    I don't know, of course I want SA to win but in all honesty your bowlers are pretty average, if England can get 200

    Yeah it would've been great to try him out for atleast 1-2 overs today.

    But I think our run rate is such that even if the game tomorrow was a tie, I think our RR would be higher than NZL's. But of course if it was a tie we wouldn't make it to the Semis.

    Yeah bowling is still pretty bad. I really wanted Y Pathan to get some game before this game against RSA.

    Either Joginder or Sreesanth should be dropped for Chawla (or Yusuf Pathan). Your pick?

    You can. (Since it's effectively run difference divided by overs faced.)

    However, since India have already scored 8 runs more than they've conceded, and will win by at least one run (making 9), then they can't get a net run rate less than 9 divided by 60 overs = 0.15. Still better than NZ.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    I would like to try Yousuf Pathan. He is a pretty aggressive batsman.

    Joginder Sharma has to be dropped. Then its a question of whether to also drop Sreesanth and get Agarkar back. Its touch and go.

    I think bowling him in the initial new ball spell of 2 or 3 or even 4 ovesrs is what we should do with Agarkar. He should NEVER be brought back later in the game. Then we might be able to use him.

    I would stick with Sreesanth who has some potential unlike Agarkar. If nothing else it will be useful experience for future ODI's.

    I am a bit apprehensive about putting Chawla in a huge pressure game against some big hitters. Still the lad has shown some spunk and he will probably be able to handle it.

    Incidentally one of the things I like about this format is how it exposes the weak links in your bowling. How many times have you seen a team lose a game because of one or two bad overs often from a part-time bowler. By contrast in ODI's you can often hide such bowlers in the middle overs.
