I think he's talking about the Quarter Finals... Coz he doesn't know what he's talking about in the Final Analysis!
We are all forgetting Sri Lanka... they have beaten NZ, Pakistan and India : They have a pretty good team and I think that everyone in India and Pakistan will be hoping that NZ beats them tonight.. coz they are currently a really great all round team
So Good Luck to Who Ever Wins out of the 4 Teams.. We are in four 3 Excellent games.. that's for sure!
BTW... Ricky Ponting after scoring a ton has reigned (to the pressure) as Captain of Australia! How bad is that
well as per rankings India and Srilanka are at par...India recently won series in sri lanka...and sri lanka /India have played each other so many times in last 2 years that both can beat each other and it makes 50-50 chances...but can't take pakistan out of equation and new zeland are dark horse...
Ponting's retirement as a captain was on cards since Last Ashes series. If Australia had reached semis, then we could've seen him captaining his team for another year or so.
And yes, Sri Lanka have the ability to beat both India and Pakistan, since they have quite a few match-winners in their team. So, lets hail New Zealand which BTW is the only team who have beaten Pakistan in this world cup, courtesy Ross Taylor.
Hi superwags. I thought New Zealand won already. It is very windy here my cable for international sports is down. I just looked at news. I choose who wins per game..I am confused with converting time - diff time zones
Well NZ's batting was rubbish for the last 7 wickets.. I hate that Styris (as an inform batsman) always only plays his own game and backs off the strike, when he needs to ease his junior players in. He pulls that stunt all the time.. honestly don't know why the kiwi selectors keep him in the team, if he won't play a senior role
Great pressure Sri Lanka.. looking like winners after holding NZ to under 50 overs! I'm sure most of the younger kiwis are afraid of Murali.. more than any other bowler.
Sri Lanka (or even the Sisters of the Stiff Wickets of St.Ucan'ttouchthat Flicket Team) can knock that score over in 43 overs - unless Southee is gets his line early..
May the Team That Earned that Slot Be There Sofs.. As a Kiwi.. It's Like they Just don't want it enough! I know that isn't factually the case, but their constant inconsistency shows that the NZ Team have got some Head or Ego Problems It is so disappointing watching them fail themselves.. they have some good players, yet they only work as a team 2/5 games.
The Kiwis don't deserve to be there if they play below their ability! And for Sri Lanka 24/0 off 4 overs.. Go hard.. make that 41 overs.
Nehra in-Ashwin out, strange change as Ashwin is a far better bowler than Nehra against a Pakistan team that don't play spin well and Ashwin has already proved his worth but the decision will work out for India due to dew factor. Soaib Akter could be a good choice for Pakistan against India although he hasn't been in good form in recently. Pakistan has 8 specialist batsmen although no more than 5 of them are match winner. India has 7 batsmen each of whom can win a match for India single handedly. India has a poor bawling attack but Pakistan in very much strong in this section. India is far better in the fielding section than Pakistan. Overall it will be a great contest. It is a 250 run pitch today but India need 350.
I hope so but nothing is safe in a India Pakistan match. 250 or 350 no matter how much the run is, it will be a big fight. If it was any other team to score 300 against Pakistan I would say Pakistan will be defeated but in a India-Pakistan match its safer to keep silent and enjoy the battle.
Already 3 golden moments for Sachin. 1. In field umpire gave LBW but the review proved the decision wrong 2. Stamped and Pakistan seemed very confident but not out indeed 3. Misbah dropped Sachin in short mid wicket
Indeed 300-350 was never on the board. I said India need 350 as their bowling is very poor. Whatever, 260 is a very good score in this pitch. Indian fast bowlers need to fire if they want to win the game.
India is about to win the semi final against Pakistan. Pakistan scored 181 for 6 so far in 41 overs chasing Indian score of 260. It is very difficult for Pakistan to score 80 runs in just 0 overs with only four wickets in hand. Thanks, Jyoti Kothari
Having scored 274 with some big blasts at the down order momentum will be on Sri Lanka's side. Moreover with Shewag out early, Dhoni not in form, Kohli not firing and no Yousuf Pathan down the order India will find it very difficult to make it over the side. A real team India effort is needed now. At least 4 players have to play their part.
Sachin gone Now it's not only about skill but also a test of temperament for the relatively young Indian middle order. If Dhoni and Yuvraj don't don't play well today India will lose. It will be very tough for Kohli and Raina to handle the pressure.
100 runs from 65 ball with 5 wicket remaining type situation will come in this match. It will be a nerve killing match.
I was writing the match overview. I have worked for a newspaper throughout the world cup as a junior cricket specialist. You know I am a cricketer although had to leave cricket for some unexpected reasons.
