Woke up after 2.5 hours and saw SL were 150-8

Solid batting performance this time round - I wonder why we cannot do it consistently.

All of us know India can beat Aussies in the finals. But i just feel they are a tad overconfident at times. Bowling has been good. But we should not pick Sreesanth again for rest of the matches. He has not been in good form. I have a gut feeling that we will beat Aussies. I just Hope hope it happens!

Our batting will always let us down in crucial matches as we have seen it previously. (other matches with Aussies). Hope this time our batsmen will click & score.

Our batting USED to let us down, but NOT any more .

Also there is talk of getting Ganguly and Dravid back in the side (Mr Bogle started it). I can tell you all that if they were part of the team in Australia, India would not have reached the finals .

Sehwag is waiting like a chained Tiger. I think Dhoni will unleash him against Australia .

Woah...Our batting is letting down even now. We have seen this consistently in previous matches. There is nobody to stay at the middle order and steer the innings (except MSD).

Dravid deserves a place in Indian Team as a "Test Cricket Batting Coach" .
Joke of IPL: Dravid plays T20

I beg to differ. The way he has batted till date in this series, his best place remains in the dressing room. Chained tiger no way.... more like a tamed cat nowadays.

That was stupid of Ishant Sharma. Sachin, being the senior most (or anybody samiliar with the law), must have taught the ICC rules to these new guys. You cannot gesture after getting a batsman out. However, you can bad mouth them . Ishant is young, he will pick it up soon
