    Sachin and Ganguly dominate Namibia

    Sachin Tendulkar has just reached his 34th ODI Century, while Sourav Ganguly is playing well for his 67.

    India 1/204 of 38 overs

    Yeah Eclipse I agree as well. Davison's innings was one of the greatest ive seen. It was like David vs Goliath, only this time, david won, (wise words of homer)

    Well, what a masterly innings by Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin Goes past 150, gets 152. Sourav Ganguly should get some people off his back for now, he reaches his 20th, yes you read right folks, 20th ODI Century! Ganguly finishes is on 102 no, and India are 294/2 in the 49th.

    Top Effort India, considering Pakistan and England didn't really explode against Namibia

    Well India finish on 311/2 in 50.0 overs. A fantastic total.
    Once again hats off to Sachin Tendulkar who got a majestic 152, and Sourav Ganguly who played a captains knock of 112* which included 6 fours and 4 sixes.

    Well done India!

    Yes a good effort but to be honest thats what the Indian batting line up should do to the Namibi attack.

    Man India play alot of ODI cricket I cant beleve Ganguly has 20 one day hundreds.

    Good to see Tendulkar back into good form he is India's only chance of making the semi finals IMO.

    Now should get them below 150. This pitch was just as the same as they played against Holland. Slow and some keeping low. But they batted well today.

    I've just watched the brief highlights of the Indian innings and the century by Sachin was CLASS. Gangulys one was altogether different - a little more brutal.

    I think Ganguly realised that this was one of the few chances he will get to play against someone who won't get him out 1st ball. A good innings, and you can only play against what is put in front of you, but I need proof that he's in good enough form against Pakistan. Nambia have 2 good bowlers in Snyman and van Vuuren. Pakistan have a team full of them.

    What happened to Nehra today? Why did he stop after 1 ball?

    Not sure, but India are lucky it didn't happen in a game against one of the big teams - they struggle enough with 4 specialist bowlers!

    On the bright side, it may give AA a chance!

    Or maybe Nehra's unlucky it happened? He was bowling well.

    The topic " India dominates Namibia"..
    I guess we're expected to.

    Good news is that Saurav tried out most of his bowling options, and had a look at what form they are in. Maybe atleast now, he'll bowl Yuvaraj more :rolleyes: Saurav has had this strange tendency to always choose to bowl Sehwag or Mongia, though Yuvaraj is atleast as good as Sehwag, if not better. With the fifth bowler sure to go for plenty of runs against the big teams, we may need to mix it up!

    I'm happy Saurav got plenty of singles.. maybe he's batted himself into form? Let's see how he does against England.

    Eclipse, Ganguly has 20 ODI tons not only because India plays a lot, but also because he has been a opener for a long time, and is a high quality player.
    He scored 8000 runs faster than 1nyone else, including Sachin.

    Yes but while Ganguly has 8408 runs after that knock, Sachin has 11867 after his. That's a difference of 3459 runs
