    Turbinator do you reallize India is yet to beat a non minnow team in WC?

    India - WI game will be very close. WIs are so desperate to prove their worth esp. against India in India. They will peak just at right time.

    Pressure is on India.

Ask any Indian fan right now, if there is one team they'd avoid that is Australia in the quarters. I rather deal with them in the semis or final being that much closer to the cup.

    Boohoo Sanz, cry me a river.
    No, not just that, your prediction that we are going to win against WI as if we have set the world on fire in this WC.

    I am an Indian fan too and I am not sure If I want to face any Non-Minnow team.

    So my preference would be to have Netherlands, Bangladesh, Ireland, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Canada to reach the WC QF and the only other spot left should be England. Because they will more likely loose to a minnow and if we do meet them, we will have a tie.

    Who would have thought Nehra could actually be more hateable?

    It's not his fault he's **** and is put in such a situation. But at the end of the day, he can't bat, can't field and can barely bowl.

    Why are you playing international cricket for the (former) World Cup favourites?

    Both Munaf and Nehra can go to the bences. We have 3 crappy bowlers - Chawla, Munaf and Nehra - all give away so many runs. I really would prefer Shreesanth and Ashwin than any of the former.

    Zaheer
    Ashwni
    Shreesanth - provided he keeps his nerves calm.
    Yuvraj

    That should be enough.

    Munaf deserves a spot tbh. He can still be tight on different pitches. Sree is just way too inconsistent.

    Don't be silly. You're basing that off what, two games? You say we have yet to win against a non minnow as if in history we've never won against one or in the last 5-10 games we haven't. Gain some perspective, it's been 2 games ffs.

    We can talk about that last over, but SA also needed a bit of luck with inside edges, close runouts etc. India should have had 40 runs extra to play with after Tendulkar got out. Basically lost the game in 8 overs of madness at that stage. OK, Steyn bowled very well.. so they should have adjusted their sights accordingly, batted conservatively and settled for 325. We all knew India struggle to defend less than 320 on flat pitches (though this one had a bit for the spinners), so it's not really that much of a surprise. If anything, SA cut it a bit too close in their chase and kept us in with a sniff throughout.

    WE BATTED ONLY 48.3 OVERS!!!!! FFS. Still fuming at that.

    Munaf's done a lot more to prove himself over the last few months than Sree, including this tournament.

    Needless to say, it's the 29/9 that lost it.

    Agree with you. Even with Kallis eating up balls during the middle,they still couldn't defend it.

    India need 350 min to be favourites for a match, if they bat first.

    Not saying they can't do it, but 3 games in a row, especially against teams like SL, AUS, SA, there is nowhere for their bowling to hide. Batting needs to be huge. And if Malinga, Tait, Steyn or Akhtar have a good day, will make it hard for them.

    India need a strike quick bowler. Ashwin or Even Sreesanth if the pitch is seaming.

    India fielded very well. Sachin, Virender, Virat and Suresh were excellent fielders today. Most of them did well except the two catches that were missed by Yuvraj and Gambhir.

    India's bowling especially Nehra and Patel costed too much. They gave away tons of runs.

    Yes, the batsmen should have played smarter in PP, but why blame them.....you were ****ty as a batsman today without PP.

    Oh and you made an assanine decision to give Nehra the last over to bowl.

    So no MSD, you idiot, we lost this match because of your poor captaincy.

    Feel sorry for the Indians.I was pretty sure they were going to clinch it when Gambhir and Sachin were at the crease.I'm still not convinced that Steyn is a top drawer ODI bowler though.

    I've always sympathized with Nehra,but he's just not good enough to cut it at the highest level.I still love the guy however.

    Inside edges happen. We had luck with no one going to catch Sehwag. That **** evens out.

    Obviously the batting collapse was a joke, but that doesn't always happen. However this last over bull**** is happening every match. How do you prevent it? A captain making a common sense decision like bowling a guy who had bowled his last few overs brilliantly should be expected. When he doesn't do that, and every armchair critic knows he's just made the wrong decision before it even goes sour, there is a serious problem.

    I look forward to the day we don't get smashed by number 8 and 9 batsmen.

    Last time India beat a Non-Minnow team was 8 years ago on 14th march 2003. That was 8 years ago, It is ridiculous for certain Indian fans to make some of those stupid claims that are being made in this thread.

    India indeed doesn't do very well against BIG teams. We have no chance of making past QF. Mark my words.
