6 times in one year. Many people dont achieve that in a life time!

Sad end to an excellent innings.

Sachin is hell bent on making another record. Getting out in 90s for a record no. of times.

Snippet from Cricinfo;
Forget Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Sachin Tendulkar is the undisputed king of 90s - (both decade & scores)

I guess he already has the record. 16 times. Five on 99 (I thinks!)

Dhoni is not able to play the pacemen from pakis. I think he has got out to Akthar earlier too. Will he survive the pace attack..Has to be seen.

All the three matches he got out to Akhtar. But hang on Akhtar has been taken off the attack. So no issues there. Also Yuvraj is looking in good touch. My guess: Over 48th and we will win (47.x that is)

Read on Cricinfo commentary... Sachin - the King of 90s, scores-wise and decade-wise

Looks like we will win this game,but as always,nothing can be said till the end. We can only hope to sail smoothly.
Assuming we do,I'd really hope that some of the senior players are rested,and the new comers Praveen Kumar & Rohit Sharma are given a chance. It'll be a good chance for them to prove themselves,and assure their spot on the team.

Not on Australia tour. Maybe they should start with home series. Playing in australia requires lot of skill and experience as there will be extreme conditions.

snaronikar,I was talking about introducing the newcomers in the final ODI against Pak. More like a stepping stone for them,so that if they perform well,they'd gain confidence & emerge as really valuable players.

Its of no use if they are choosen for only one match and again make them sit for next tour. If they really want to try youngsters, then they should plan a couple of series. Then we will come to know about the performance of younger players.

So India have won. Good that they have won the series in 20+ years against pakis in India.

Thats right.Intermittent opportunities really don't take things to a higher level. The ICL matches will be fun to watch,with loads & loads of newcomers.

Way to go! India won!
