Its a pity that Australia are stooping to disgusting levels. We used to hear this comment in a lot of project meetings "be like the aussies when they play cricket". Its taken a beating now.

Let them come to India i am going to get to the stadium and jump around like a monkey, and pass monkey comments. To heck if i get thrown out of the stadium.

Spitfire Guess you will have the entire cricket fans from this site for company. Will get thrown out in a bunch but who cares as long as the affect is made on them. You get what you give is the funda ponting and co should realise. We simply are not jobless to go around making comments like how you do.

Well, you can taunt the aussies as soon as its clear as to which team is going to win. You can avail of sponsored exit from the stadium and avoid the rush.

anyways, would like indian cricket team to report a few spectators and get them evicted tomorrow. Would be fun to needle the aussie spectators..that would irritate the channel 9 commentators and hopefully upset the aussie cricket team. if any aussie says something, immediately report them to umpires..further needling the team, commentators and spectators (they call this mind games).

We are anyways coming back, leaving them to lick their wounds.

Bhajji did point to the crowd booing at him when he was fielding on the boundary, he was taking it lightly though and was enjoying it. Shame on the aussie spectators.

Peter Lalor, in the [COLOR=#0068c3]Australian[/COLOR], looks at how the eventful series has affected Ricky Ponting.
From the moment the one-day series started in India last September he has battled nonsense and scandal at every turn. Players have clashed on the field and nations have clashed off it. His team and his board are at loggerheads for the first time in years. Controversy has stuck to the Australians like dog excrement sticks to the shoes. It has left a stain across the carpet of the summer and will take some removing.
Isnt this called as mind games? So monkeys getting beaten at mind games?


Am laughing my head off...bhajji is seriously taunting the aussies and starting to win the game..

Read some of the aussie newspapers, they are very indignant that bhajji has been let off again...so bhajji seems to be mastering the art of sledging and beating the aussies at their own game.

So what's it going to be today guys? India off to a slow but steady start, 45/0 in 12, my biggest concern is that Sreesanth is in for Ishant Sharma & that may make all the difference at the death

just score 250-275 and then rile the aussies when they bat...create so much tension that no one can bat...

Well sachin is in flow and robin provided the needed support at the right time. hope for a 300 plus score and try to create a tensed atmosphere as the outfield looks slow.

Well, SRT is making up for the previous failures in this series by performing in the finals. Great going so far.

Shouldn't we now be looking at a score around 280-300?

Man, I love the look at those Australian faces! Lee has already bowled 8 overs with no luck!

They have got Lee wrapped up, everyone is showing him the flat face of the bat.

Sachin falls for a poor shot.

Now its perfect for Rohit Sharma. 10 overs to go, flat pitch and a demoralised Aussie attack.

We will end up making 250+ in 50 overs. It all depends on how we hold our nerves in bowling. Sreesanth should not go for runs today. Otherwise, it will be a doomsday for us. The first 10 overs of aussies innings will decide the match which way it is headed to.

Really?

I'm praying that our bowlers hold their act together today - that's going to be critical

Cool sedate end to a solid indian innings

Brilliant 30overs and a sedate 20overs - Indian innings to a close really.

Sreesanth must hold every nerve of his to bowl ONLY to a plan....or we can safely welcome the decider.

Goshh,, this is really good now.

Anyways Rohit Sharma could not make the most out of it. Looks like he is more of a top order batsman, he should have come in when Yuvraj left.

Good fighting total, could have been better but whether its good enough we will know. Pray the bowlers bowl a consistent line.
