    I think it's a good thing I'll be missing most of this match travelling, for the sake of my heart. Will just pretend it never happened if the result doesn't go our way.

    haha.....yeah that might be a good option
    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

    Another thing is that the teams with good bowling attacks have looked much stronger in this WC which is probably why India have not seemed as good as their pre tournament status suggested/

    Pakistan definitely the better bowling side. However it must be borne in mind that the Pakistan spinners won't be half as effective against India as they have been against other teams
    South Africa has equally balanced bowling attack, Your theory only implements on Sri Lankan pitches (Double paced). Against Steyn n co we scored 87/0 in 10 overs. On Indian pitches proper batsmen capable of scoring 100s come handy. India-Eng/SA-India/Eng-IRD match comes to mind. Pakistan batting must click, no Salman Butt and Shoaib Malik this time for Pakistan (They always lifted their game against India). India's top 3 vs Pakistans top 3 batsmen will be crucial. Plus Pakistan middle order is not one you relate to 6 Runs/over (Misbah, Younus, Shafiq). If India bats first, 350 is minimum you guys will be chasing.

    Yes, the way Sehwag and Sachin batted against the best attack in the tournament should not be forgotten just because we ****ed up royally in the end. Not to say it will happen again, but if India bat well, they have a good chance of dominating any attack. Even today, 3 wickets were pretty much gifts to the Aussies. India's middle-order batsmen (bar Yuvraj) really need to learn to keep their foot on the opposition's throats after their top-order gives them such excellent starts.

    yeah but against SA that Khatmal-ish leave off a Sehwag edge by the Saffers keeper cost them heavily....much like the Khatmal reprieves to Taylor cost pakistan

    One half-chance in 15 overs isn't bad when you are attacking that much. It wasn't even bad bowling, especially by Kallis and Morkel, when you go back and watch the highlights. Just sublime batting from both ends.

    It was not a half chance man.........it was a straight forward regulation catch to the wk.....he just let it go and the slip was waiting for the wk to take it

    Tendulkar was awesome tbf and even today he looked great out there..........some of the shots were plain outstanding

    If India bats first,i'm certain we will be chasing a decent score.Saying that we will chase 350 is taking it a bit too far though.Gul and Afridi will tighten the screws,Hafeez is very economical,so that is 25 overs,or even 30 of the Indians innings if Hafeez bowls his entire quota.The hitting will have to be down in the remaining 20 overs against the Razzaqs and co.Even if India go at 8 an over for 20 odd overs,they definitley won't be going at 7-8 an over against Gul,Afridi and Hafeez.

    I think they will get a target in the higher 200s if they bat first.Edge close to 300,but not reach 350.Every match isn't Karachi 2004.

    Yeah well, those things happen. Like Razzaq dropping Tendulkar in 2003. What followed afterwards was sensational though.

    EDIT : To smalishah's post about van Wyk not going for Sehwag's catch.

    We should chase imo. A target of 272 would be ideal, with Sehwag and Sachin smashing every bowler around for fun at the start and Yuvraj will score a 50 to take us home.
