    Australia VS INDIA!!!

    Well India has decided to drop Kaif (unless they change the mind at last moment) who was hopelessly out of form and bring in Bangar. The pitch at centurion is being said to help the spinners, so Bhajji and Kumble may have a big role in the game.

    Indian lineup will most probably like

    Sachin
    Ganguly
    Sehwag
    Dravid
    Yuvraj
    Mongia
    Bangar
    Khan
    Harb
    Kumble
    Srinath.

    The top 4 batters got to fire really, otherwise it could be a onesided match.

    I reckon that India could lift against Aussie. Can't say they will win, but I get the feeling a couple of their batsmen may fire tonight.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    I was wrong. India just get worse and worse...

    I thought it would be a decent game for some illogical reason (class never dies) however I am not going to waste valuable sleeping time on this one.

    78-6. Tendulkar gone, Kim gone to bed...

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    What, did you go and bowl for Australia?



    Australia were awesome. The Indian batting was insipid. They've got no self-confidence. It's not a matter of form as I can see it. They need a couple of people to fire for them. The pitch was not at fault at all for this one. From what one could make out , it was a good pitch. Infact India had everything going for them. Australia were batting second on a good pitch but one that will probably slow down. Aussies were visibly nervous to start with and Sachin went with the old plan- hit McGrath. Why, even the SA crowd is behind us. This is dissapointing and it's got little to do with Australia really. Even England could surprise us if this goes on.

    Reg. the Aussies, impressive spirit. They didnt relax till Mongia was accounted for. Gillespie's concentration in his 8th 9th overs were something to see. The most surprising thing for me is Ponting's captaincy. Good going Punter. Hogg's interesting, but once people get used to his wrong un, he's not a problem. His stock deliveries were read easily by Bhajji.

    And a word for Harbhajan- he rocks!

    You can allways rely on Harbajan to do something interisting.

    As for "Even England could beat us", even before the NZ Tour both teams were just about equal.

    ...and Ganguly's poor run continues...I'll see if I can find out his scores of late, this is just getting worse and worse. I remember when a captain in the 1980s dropped himself because of bad form, Hussain nearly did but it was really a bad summer for him, nothing else. Ganguly can say that he's dissapointed with the batting till he's blue in the face but seriously how are the other batsmen supposed to listen to him when he gets a scratchy 8 or 9 then gives his wicket away?

    They've got no self-confidence.
    For once I agree with FL, its not about talent or form, its about self-confidence with the Indian team, one could see that in the Ind/Holland match. But I have said this a million times before and will say it again, Laxman is by far the best Indian batsman in the face of extreme adversity, and in a match like this he is a must. Dravid is a distant second in this category in my opinion. And one can almost always count on tendulkar to fail in exterme adversity, or atleast leave the task unfinished.

    Ironically neither the Pak captain nor the Indian cap deserve a place in their respective sides, they both need some big time surge in their performance, becasue from what they have shown till now they are blocking the place of someone better (Saqi, Laxman).

    Well this team is playing hopelessly now. They can't seem to forget NZ. Will they even beat Zim now? Ok England are playing tomorrow. I heard that Nasser was very unhappy that the ECB has apologised on his behalf to Speed and that he is thinking about retirement. Why did the ECB do that? Anyway now i am rooting for Eng as India doesn't look like qualifying.

    Whatever happened to India winning the cup?

    India have a better chance than England as they have the chance to beat Zimbabwe and qualify, while England already have lost their chance to get those points.

    I agree about the apology bit, there was no need to apologise for anything.

    Some people might suggest that form and confidence are very closely related.
