    I disagree that India's defence of 296 was 'pathetic'. They only made a par score, and almost won. It was a regular performance.

    Against England, yes their bowling was pathetic for sure.

    More remarkable is that he's only played 52 ODIs in 6 years.

    You probably all know the guy personally and I am late to the party - but I found this a very entertaining write-up:

    Oh yes - while I am here and we are so under represented, mostly because of smaller sample size:

    Go South Africa!

Feel free to bump this if they don't, although I assure you all you won't be getting that chance.

    Vs. Scotland - Rained out
    Vs. Pakistan - Match tied
    Vs. NZL - India lost by 10 runs

    Similarities much? Guess who won that tournament? Point is, we came back strong, it had only been 2 matches and far too early in the tournament.

    People are quick to point out my optimism and unrealistic hopes. But if I was to even agree to that, some of you have to agree you've been far too pessimistic and have overreacted to a grand total of two games. If this was any other team, some of you guys would go into the match threads as neutrals and say something along the lines of the team still being dangerous, peaking at the right time, and/or anything can happen in KO stages etc.

    My thinking behind this is that, India are a good ODI unit at home. Two games are too little to judge their chances off of. India have a great home record, and are a team that we've seen improve over the years. We just need to get back into form, and all it can take is one game. And if we play great cricket in the next 4 games, this cup is ours.
