    You're kidding, right?

    India have by far and away the best ODI batting-line-up going around - and Bangladesh's attack is by-and-large extremely poor. It's perfectly conceivable that if things fall into place India could score a massive, massive total (and against Bermuda too, obviously).

    Tendulkar
    Dravid
    Yuvraj Singh
    Dhoni
    Doesn't come much better than that IMO. They can tear any attack to shreds - South Africa, even. If they hit top straps, Bangladesh haven't got a hope in hell. Even if they don't, and "only" score 270 or so, their attack (with Patel and Harbhajan to the fore) is easily strong enough to restrict Bangladesh to not-much.

    Seriously, Bangladesh are badly overrated at the current time.

    To bad cricket isn't played on paper...or India would be the champions.Seriously that batting line up looks good but it's another thing delivering?.India haven't been in great form in the one dayers leading up and although I do appreciate India has some exceedingly talented players but I am still not convinced by them in the one day game because of their inconsistency.Didn't Mitchell Johnson take 4-11 against that batting line up....That is why I feel that although India are definite favourites and will probably win Bangladesh do have a chance of causing an upset.Never going to be convinced by India even with the supposed "great batting line up " until they are more consistent and they don't just show flashes of their talents.It's a bit unfare of you to call the Bangladeshi attack "extremely poor".They have capable bowlers who although have done well against the associates can defenitely do well against better teams.Mortaza IMO has the potential of becoming a very good one day player and Rafique and Razzak are decent spinners.

    .....

    There is a BIG difference between a great batting lineup and a batting line up that fires up together. There also is a great difference between players with great potential and great players.

    Every lineup do not always fireup together. On a day a potentially good lineup can do surprisingly well, as can a great batting lineup on their given day.

    The same goes with the bowling.

    True, I do say that BD is being a little too over-rated at the moment (especially after their win against the Kiwis), but really dissing them as badly is harsh.

    And also those over-rating it at the moment aren't being quite logical at the moment.

    We can only wait and see what happens. Until tomorrow's gone we would not know the result.

    But I can assure Turbunater that bowling BD out for 80 or 105 is a little too much expectation from the current Indian bowling lineup at present !!!!!

    Let's not get too carried away with extremism.

    Final Verdict: India are favorites, BD MIGHTbe able to cause an upset it things click for them.....the passing away of a team mate does not seem to help their cause either.
    So I really don't know what they would do tomorrow, but if they go down, hopefully they would go down fighting.

    Peace !!!!!

    Yeah, but the problem is that the chance of India ****ing up are 50/50. They could perform like minnows or like champions - no one can tell. Look at Pak, the other day - India's bowling, even with Akhtar and Asif missing from Pak, is still worse.

    The problem is not one of class, but that of form. Tendulkar is not at his best, and neither is Dravid. Sehwag is useless, Dhoni too inconsistent, Yuvraj still recovering form injury and Uthappa still unproven. So that leaves....Ganguly.

    Feels me with confidence, this does not. Yes, you are right in that if they all fire, they could rival any batting lineup in the world. But side from that brief period post 2003 world cup when we toured Australia...it just hasn't happened (yes, that was a different lineup and was a test match lineup, but as a point).

    I don't think Dhoni's inconsistent at all...he had a poor patch around the DLF Cup, but he's been very consistent from the Champions Trophy onwards. Also, Tendulkar might not be at his best (as his best is incredibly good) but he's been in pretty good ODI form of late, and Dravid has also been pretty good.

    Overall, I'd say there are question marks around the form of Yuvraj (one good innings since his comeback from injury) and Sehwag...Uthappa is, as you said, unproven, but he's certainly done pretty well so far.

    No matter what Bangladesh say atm about the Indian bowling, if they can win against India today then i think India would be knocked out of the WC in group stages itself because i can't see India beating a full-strength Sri Lankan side and rest of the3 teams in Group B won't have a tough time beating Bermuda.

    Richard,
    I think you are overplaying the Indian batting line up when you say they could quite easily get 450 if they get going...and I dont think the Indian batting line up is as good as you are making out, I think Australia and South Africa are on a level with them, and an on form Sri lankan batting lineup isnt too far behind.

    For me this game has the most potential for a group game upset, if India have one of those off days and everything goes well for B'desh, this could be pretty close

    FFS I hate stereotypes.

    Dhoni hits the ball hard and plays aggressively like Afridi, Gilly etc. so he must be inconsistent right?

    Wrong, very wrong in fact.

    Indian batting line-up is not consistent and is overrated IMO, the moment they step a foot outside India they lose their batting form and their techniques are exposed.

    So basically they aren't good travellers.
