Anyway great victory by India. SS, your job from now on is to write off India every time at the half-way point of the match, because whenever you do it, they generally win. Yet whenever you say something like "India can't lose from here" eg. India vs. South Africa 3rd test, then India bottle it and lose.
South Africa are pathetic though. That's woeful.
LOL @ Pakistan and India, who barely play the game, and are known for poor fielding, making the semis, whilst SA and England who play the game domestically don't. Its great.

Btw looking forward to posting here more often...looks like a great place.
A bit of banter can be tolerated here right?
Guys like Afridi can be more uselful than the likes of Yousuf and Dravid in this crazy format.
Anyways, we have crazily optimistic guys like him around here, but he is a good poster and a great forum member and we just let him have these moments once in a while, because, as you should know with India, these are indeed RARE.
Welcome to the forums and hope you have a great time here...
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

How well did RP Singh bowl yesterday? I know it is Durban under lights and we all know how much it does but India were batting under lights too and managed to put up 153... RPS was simply outstanding... 4/13 off 4 bowling second when your team has only 150 odd on the board is simply top drawer stuff. Sreesanth came back well after one of the poorest first overs from an Indian (Zak comes close with his 2003 exploits) and Sharma, while never looked like being anything more than ordinary, managed to come off with decent figures. Irfan continues to impress in this tourney and Harbhajan came back well after a poor first over where I thought he paid the price for being one dimensional.. Putting your faster ones in at 97 ks every ball won't help you at all in Twenty20 and it is no secret than once he started mixing it up, with the odd ball in the 80 k region flighted up and the odd ball at 105 ks, then he was having more success.
And for those who are not sure why some of us here call Karthik the better keeper compared to Dhoni, just watch the stumping of Van Der Wath. Sure, Dhoni would probably have pulled it off too but just watch the way he rises with the ball and adjusts to the extra bounce that Bhajji got and collected it cleanly with his hands rising with the ball and then took off the bails in a flash. I am sure not many noted that but that was really top class keeping technique and I am happy he still had it after having not kept for so many weeks now....
India out fielding South AFrica... That's a first.

Much of the India line up has fired here - Gambhir, Sehwag, Uthappa, Rohit S, Yuvi of course.
But it's been Dhoni who takes the consistency crown. (Hope I dont jinx him). He's done
33 / 31 balls. 24/20.10/8 not out, 45/33 so far.
Anybody else been more steady in WC 20/20?
Great stuff from India though i missed out on watching the game yesterday, i saw a bit of the highlights today and it was fanstastic on India's part not only to win the game but also knock the Proteas out the tournament.
South Africa looked like the team to beat throughout this series but one bad game and they are out the tournament, now thats T20 for you!!
Anyways South Africa shouldn't feel too bad even if they would have gone through to the semi's they would have choked, and that would have been even more embarrassing.
Australia vs India (have been a while since these two teams have clashed) just can't wait for the game, i have a feeling that its gonna be a great game.
I won't argue the fact that it's been dismal stuff by England though.
