Good to see the Fab fighting through their skin (with some help from umpires ). Youngsters will have first-hand experience of this fight.
Note: After the match, I am sure the Fab will come out in the press that this performance is for those who questioned their commitment

Yuvraj at No 3 ? What nonsense is going on here. Is there any thinking going into the batting order at all ?

Or maybe being the gracious cultural people we are, we give him the right to play maximum overs on his home ground ?

This means Uttappa is twiddling his thumbs . Yuvi is very dangerous in slog overs and here we send him one down. Shucks !

EDIT - btw Sachin was out the first ball he played. Bucknor did not do the honours.

May be Bucknor wanted to do some favor to Sachin considering the harsh decision he had given to him earlier. But as per cricinfo comm it seems the ball was missing the leg. probably you would have seen those hawk eye replays.

Also Johnson was unlucky when he caught sachin on the crease while crawling on 10 from 40 deliv. Other umpire did favor to Sachin as hawk eye took the leg stump.

Let us see if this guy able to manage to get 50 in first place (currently 42 runs) and open up

India 134/1 after 30 overs. By some logic they will make (134x2=) 268 in 50 overs. Is this score enough?

Edit: The Little Master Blaster reaches 50 in 92 deliveries at strike rate of 54.34

Edit: Australia in 32 overs have given 31 extras with 29 wides

No matter how much he scores in the end, he wasted 30 deliveries inside 15 overs. 11 of 41 during the Power Play was a crime, no less and has the potential of us losing the match. And Saurav was 30 of 37 at the same time.

I was wondering how India managed a run-rate of almost 5 an over with such slow scoring by Tendulkar and Ganguly. So the Aussies have been kind to us. India should climb up to 275+ from here. Is that enough? Depends on how the pitch is playing. If it is a dead pitch, the Aussies should get there easily, unless they want to inject some interest into the series by giving this game to India (just kidding, just kidding....).

No. If he can get to a strike rate of 75+ that fine. No matter how he played initially or at the end. Finally the runs on board is going to count with good strike rate

That is old school thought.

New school thought is:
Assume Sachin reaches 100 in 130 deliveries (75 strike rate). He got first 50 in 92 and second 50 in 38 deliveries.
If he had got first 50 in 60 deliveries, he would have got 100 in (60+38)= 98 deliveries at strike rate of 102, while saving 32 deliveries (5 overs). Even by conservative estimate, India would scored 30 runs in those wasted 5 overs by Sachin. If India had a chance of reaching 300, they will reach only 270 due to Sachin's slow first 50.

Note: Sachin's slow first 50 might have cost India the match.

And we wasted Yuvi - 40 in 55 , if used in the slog overs he would / could have potentially made 50 in 30.

Hmm.. I disagree. Even a conservative estimate of 20 runs scored off those 30 wasted deliveries upfront can cost us the match, though I wish we win today. Given that Ganguly was able to score runs in the same period against the same bowlers, one wonders if Sachin is out there to just prove a point or two to his critics and in the process cost us the match (and the series!)

Our run rate is picking up nicely in the last 3-4 overs (at 41 overs now). Hope it can touch (and go beyond) 6 at the end of the innings.

Edit: What a waste, the master blaster is out just when we were looking up (run rate wise!)

Edit again: Why send Dravid at 43rd over? Where is all that common thing (sense!) went guys when Uthappa and Pathan are in the line up?

God forbid if Sachin goes above 80 - he might again slow down going for a century

Over 41.5
Hopes to Tendulkar, OUT, Full in length, on the off and middle, Tendulkar missed a paddle sweep and the ball ran to Lee at short fine leg region. There was a huge shout for lbw and Bucknor turned it down. Meanwhile, Tendulkar had reached almost the middle of the track and was sent back but couldn't beat Lee's direct hit. It caught everybody by surprise. Gilchrist was still appealing...

SR Tendulkar run out 79 (182m 119b 7x4 0x6) SR: 66.38

119 - 79 = 40 deliveries = 6.4 overs

Dravid and not Uttappa - we have messed our batting order big time this match.

Thanks Brett
