India win toss and elect to bat. Sehwag and Gambhir doing a very good job. Presently it is 107/0 (14 overs) with Sehwag completing 50 runs. Of course there were couple of dropped catches for Gambhir and Sehwag. India going strong at present.

I wonder where Diabloo is, by now he should have gone ballistic with Sehwag's performance

For just 50? He has 2 300s. If weather permits he might get a double today

Well i just hope that they dont start walking back after 20 overs are bowled!!!
Great start and whats gone wrong with the pak fielding? If they play ike this the next edition of ipl also they would be undervalued

Excellent Batting by Viru & Jai , Sorry Gambhir. We should hopefully get 350 at this rate. Anything beyond that would be great. Hope Rain gods dont play spoil sport.

Middle order batsman sqnadered the good opportunity. The foundation provided by Gauti and sehwag was not utilized properly. Otherwise, the score would have gone past 350. But with current batting, looks like it will just cross 320+.

EDIT: Dhoni out. Looks like our people will not even play complete 50 overs.

The Strongest batting line up on paper yet again disappointed apart from openers & Yuvi. Rain has stopped play. I hope we can reach 320+ after play resumes.

Kumar's double strike has put pak on back foot.

Edit: Yousuf too gone for Kumar

Talking

Do you think 330 is disappointment? How many teams in World Cricket can score over 300 against a good pace attack on an unpredictable pitch?

"I would prefer to discuss strategies against India with my player rather than telling the media. I would like to score a 150-run win over India on Tuesday," -Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson

Pak 26/3 in 5 overs - may be Lawson had planned a big, 150 runs defeat for Pakistan .

The commentary in neo cricket is pathetic. Hope they are the local people there giving the commentary with Arunlal and R raja. And these 2 are also pathetic to hear.
