Didn't see any signs of them being demoralized in the last 5 or 6 overs!

Check when i made the post it was when Sachin was batting and had just got out. Last 5-6 overs dude they were on top and Rohit fell at the 41.1 over, and the post was before Rohit came in to bat.

Yeah but then i know where the rolling in laughter smilie came up. The brotherhood lol. Dont make me explain that.

The game looks pretty open now, with Australia having that very slight advantage. But, India has two good spinners, who can prove quite a handful to the Aussies. Much depends on whether Sreeshanth can live up to the pressure and the expectation created by Ishant Sharma. This looks like one absorbing final. Go India go!

Hey, I put that post & the smiley when the wickets had started falling in the last few overs. It was more of - so what else is new. It had really nothing to do with "brotherhood". Whatever your concept behind that may be. Lol

Okie point taken, my bad.

Sreesanth can raise to the occasion, he has in it to prove he is as good as Ishant if not better, he just needs to back himself.

The pressure is still on the Aussies, the Indians need to bowl the way they bowled in the first final.

Dhoni dropped Hayden, and possibly the match as well :-((

And injured Tendulkar in the process.

3.3 Sreesanth to Hayden, 1 run, dropped, full and outside off, nice bit of swing away from the left-hander, Hayden swishes and the ball takes the edge, Dhoni dives to his left but can only get a slight deflection, strikes Tendulkar on his left shoulder as the ball trickles away, Tendulkar in pain, Dhoni can't believe he fluffed that

Tendulkar is being treated now, that ball was travelling, he's off the field for now

I wouldn't worry too much about that - we'll "weed" him out later

i did not like dhoni's attitude after that dropped catch & subsequent injury to sachin. What's he gonna lose if he smiles & apologises to sachin & helps him on his feet ? He looked pretty cold & serious. Where is the gentleman ?
