We need to kick out No-Hit Sharma from the team.

I guess you should also add part time bowlers getting smashed all over the park esp. Yuvi & Yusuf. I think we recovered quite well to reach 160. But it always didnt feel a decent score to defend with such a small ground. I hope we buck up and win the next one .

You are right. IMO NZ deserved to win the way they performed as underdogs. I can digest defeat from anyone but the OZ

Australia has lost 3 quick wickets for 42 runs. Struggling to take the SA pace, ponting looking good for a big score. Going to be a very interesting series

Whom do you bet for this series

Was looking at the playing X1 of both teams and I could hardly recognise the Australian team.

The South Africans are the favourites here by a long way.

@ dark horizon: No point in even discussing "Jack" Sharma here. You know how India is, he will be in the team for a long time. Unless ofcourse his Jack finishes!

Smith floored one of the easiest chances offered by Ponting. Would not it be more interesting to read 77/4 with Ponting back

It would have been fantastic had Smith had held ponting in the penultimate over before lunch. Would have been bloody fantastic.

Quoting Cricinfo

Steyn to Ponting, no run, edged and Smith drops a dolly at first slip! You are not going to get easier slips catches than that, sorry! Good ball from Steyn, quick and short of a length and straightening and lifting and Ponting is forced to push at that gem, gets a thick outside edge that goes straight into Smith's lap but he muffs a simple take

I can understand why are you shifting your loyalities. After all elections are coming so effect will be everywhere

My predictions for tommo-
Sehwag and Yuvi boom boom.
Ishant getting wickets.
India making 200+ and winning

For all you Rohit sharma lovers- he is playing tommo also.
And am on off tommo so will see the complete match and update you guys.
Cheers!
