    If the pitch is right and our batters are in the zone then why not, but frankly this is the type of game against a top team where we need to knuckle down and get some partnerships and apply ourselves, I am confident that if we do that we will win this match comfortably.

    Oh yeah I agree, but I'm thinking of like 150+ run partnerships. Surely South Africa can't chase down a total of 400 plus, even with Waterboy in the team as leading wicket taker...right

    IMO India should target 1700. It'd be a failure if India win by less than 1695 runs.

    150 itself might well be enough seeing as South Africa choked chasing 171 the other day :P

    I have a lot of respect for South Africa despite their shocker the other day, they have some of the best pace bowlers in the world and AB is a dashing ODI player.

    Our bowling v their top 4 will be the key, if we can some how knock them over then their lower middle order has a bit of a soft belly.

    Good point RE failure to chase down 171. Perhaps a total between 100-124 should suffice. Perhaps India should consider a tactical declaration

    Triple digits? Why do we need triple digits? I'd lead the the burning-of-effigies if more than 90 runs were allowed.

    Smith is a quality batter who has been out of nick and who struggles against Zaheer big time, am confident he won't be a factor against us but at the same time we cannot take him forgranted.

    predictions:

    • there will be at least 1 ton from each side and one 4for from each side
    • the batting powerplay for each team will be an exciting time (lots of runs or lots of wickets)
    • the first batting team will score 350+ and the 2nd team will come damn close to chasing it down but will be bowled out
    • classic match which will be generate more than 750 posts in this thread

    so basically ABDV wont score coz he is due a failure and yet Kallis will continue to fail even though he is due for a good knock?

    Think you are 50 short. 500 should be easily attainable.
