    Munaf Patel doesn't at all look like he is going to get a wicket. India really need to bring in either Nehra or Sreesanth against Pakistan

    Annoying that Harbhajan has gone back into his defensive bowling shell. Thought he was bowling very well in the SA Tests and the first 3 ODIs, but he has regressed since then. I don't know why he kept coming around the wicket to Ponting.

    Yeah its frustrating watching our premier spinner darting the balls in. He's so defensive, just doesn't want to give away runs.

    need to flight the ball a little more and stop balling so fast... be prepared to go for few runs in return for wickets is what i meant.

    Guess there are two ways to look at it, one is yours, the other is the mentality that India want to bowl as tightly as possible without giving too many runs, and depend on the batting to see us home. Because if our 2nd best bowler goes for runs then theres not much of hope for India imo.

    I'd go with R-D here. The thing is that when you have the ability to take wickets like bhajji does then by taking wickets you automatically slow the run rate down and put pressure on the opposition. By bowling defensively while you may stop runs from your end the wickets in hand for the opposition means that it is much more likely that your other bowlers will be totally creamed
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Agreed but maybe India want to play it safe? I can't really make up my mind on this tbh, I don't mind either tactic.

    yeah but playing it safe is not exactly playing it safe as RT points out. I would agree. All the best captains in cricket history want their best bowlers attack. Bhajji looks much more threatening when he is flighting the ball tbh.

    Plus Ashwin is already playing the role of the defensive spinner.. We need Bhajji to attack the batsmen in the middle overs.. And against Pak, you can bet your bottom dollar that he will be collared.. He always has been toothless against Pak.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I hope he doesn't suddenly find his teeth.

    During the past decade the Dhoni-Yuvraj pair has been a real pain in the ass for us ......

    Once the two of them get together against Pakistan they seem stuck to the crease

    Yeah possibly true...
    It's frustrating because other than Zaheer, Bhajji is the only genuine wicket taking threat India have ( no disrespect to Yuvi the legend )...

    Like someone else said before.. After the South Africa series I thought Bhajji was going to rip it in this world cup but he's gone back to his old style

    Hopefully Pakistan bring Dhoni back in form as well
    He's been woeful in this world cup.

    On second thought hopefully Dhoni won't be needed
