    Hahaha wow. This is quite a collapse...
    Exactly! Thats why I dont understand why they sent Pathan?

    Bhajji needs to play out a few overs here. There is a realistic chance of us actually getting bowled out.

    Because there's this obsession with "maximizing the powerplay" meaning you have to get your most aggressive batsman in. Never mind 1. the above and 2. Pathan is not a from-ball-one hitter. Most of those tend to be, gasp, normal batsmen.

    Idea of sending Pathan just looked ridiculous to me. No batsman can come and slog straight away. Needs some time at the crease. Thats when he had always looked dangerous.

    Superb work by Kallis. 45th over going for 2 on a batting deck.

    Pathan is just like Symonds, Klusener, Kemp - who'd take their time and then attack once they get in.

    We are getting it all wrong there, oh man!

    Yeah. If they were going to promote him, Dhoni should've done what Clarke did in Sydney and sent him up to #3.

    Just ban powerplays imo. Not good for cricket

    Think SA will be fancying chasing down any total India get from here. They squandered a great platform again just like they did against England.

    Haha what Arun Lol has now to say about PowerPlay? He keeps on ranting PP should be mandatory before 40th over. India collapsed twice in WC due to PP, platform was set for 360-370 against England too.

    Problem is Sachin is proper batsmen plus he is in late 30s, India should avoid taking PP as long as Sachin is on crease in late overs, its too hot in middle, Even youngsters stamina will be tested.

    IMO drop Gambhir, play Kohli at 3. Raina at 5 to take advantage of PPs. Raina is also better fielder than Gambhir. India needs Ponting type no.3 player who can humilate opposition after good start from openers. Given recent form, Kohli is right man for job. Gambhir is not same Gambhir when he comes at 3. Play him as opener in case of regular openers injury.

    There was still plenty of time for Pathan to play himself in FFS. It wasn't like he HAD to slog from ball, could have taken an over or two to get set.
