Go India! Time to avenge the WC 2007's humiliating defeat!

I am sure Dhoni is looking forward for that since he was in the team back then.

2 Wickets with Kohli being one of them and we are worried. And we were thinking Indian Batting is good!
I see only 3 batsmen in the team who use their head while playing. Kohli, Dhoni and Rahane. Rahane is out there now...hope he succeeds.

Is the pitch so difficult to play as the run rate is just over 4 after 27 overs? Or is our batting so poor? Or is Bangladesh really bowling so very well? Looks a bit scary at the moment!

Heck! India is now 115 for 3 after 28 overs!

Don't know what is happening. The run rate is very bad. 3 wickets down. Hope this won't be a disappointment!

MCG is pretty huge - hitting a boundary is also hard. :(

Play is on now. India is 200/3 and 63 deliveries remaining in the innings. Can India accelerate and reach 300?

I think they can aim to cross 280 given the current scenario. Depends on how Dhoni plays now. But given the large size of the ground, it will be difficult for Bangladesh to chase a total above 250 runs.

IMHO, Murtaza made a big mistake coming on to bowl again in his second spell. They'd really contained us till then.

Made 3 predictions at the start.
Rohit with a century.
India will make 300
And Bangladesh will be out by 240.

Two have came true and now waiting for third one.

Seems like the Tiger's are fighting equally good! They are maintaining a good run rate

Half of the Bangladesh's team is back into the stands. They are 113/5 after 30 overs and with every over the target is becoming tougher. I guess they have lost the plot and seems like India will cruise to a comfortable win (hopefully).
