Don't worry guys. Either Talent or Dhawan will play a blinder in the next match and all will be well that ends well

Let's hope they do, Yuvi has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament after the injury.

I am happy that we won't have to see struggling Yuvi trying hard to middle the ball anymore in this tournament.
Manish Pandey is more than perfect replacement for Yuvi IMHO.

As mentioned in the few posts but I don't think Rahane looks 'threatening' i.e. can win matches on his own, same thing which was said about Dravid and to me that is the most crucial aspect required for T20.

I also say that Dhawan and Rohit are due for big innings, they would rightly be replaced when the time comes as we can't keep Manish Pandey, etc. waiting outside for too long.

If one remembers even MSD's place in ODI squad is questioned by many and there are many predictions being made about his retirement from ODIs.

After IND, I am supporting for NZ as they are the only team of the four SFinalists who has not won the World T20. Similarly when SL lost the 2011 WC Finals to IND, they went on to win the World T20 as a consolation, hopefully NZ can do the same.

WI - great unit, with a star like Gayle and good backups - Fletcher for example and pitch hitters 1 Braithwaite, Sammy

English - great team, j.Root the great.

NZ- best of the lot. Good think tank and spirited execution.

IND - Virat and Dhoni don't make a team. Too many duds to make us eligible to lift the cup.


Like all others would love India to win!

Based on few news articles and posts on this thread, I have folg. predictions to make:

I SF : ENG v NZ

Winner would be ENG if their Women's team loses to AUS in the Women's WT20 SF that will be played before the ENG-NZ match.

Then subsequently in the second SF tomorrow between NZ Women and WI Women NZ Women will win as NZ Men has lost to ENG.

Which means that IND would lose to WI as WI Women team has lost to NZ.

At the same time, based on TV news whoever wins toss at Wankhede would go on to win the match, so IND could win if they win the toss somehow

OR

provided ENG Women defeats AUS and then everything would be just opposite.

CHAIN REACTION

Tough luck to Dhoni and the boys. And dare any of you scoffing skeptics ask, "where are you pulling these predictions from?" the answer stares you in the face.

Quote:
World champions such as Roger Federer, Iker Casillas, Taufiq Hidayat, Serena Williams, Abhinav Bindra, Ian Thorpe were all born in the years 1981-82.

Uranus, the planet of revolutionary endeavors and Planet-Y (1999 JV127), the planet of meticulous perfection were in exaltation (astrologically the strongest positions) during this time.

Our very own M.S Dhoni was also born in this time and he too became a world champion in cricket twice. There is no doubt about the fact that MSD has the best horoscope amongst all the captains in world cricket today.
But alas, all good things in life come to an end. Everything that goes up has to come down. M.S Dhoni has already seen the best moments of his cricketing life and has achieved everything that can potentially be achieved on the cricket field.

Uranus, the planet of revolutionary endeavors and Planet-‘Y’ (1999 JV127), the planet of meticulous perfection were in exaltation (astrologically the strongest positions) during this time.

Our very own M.S Dhoni was also born in this time and he too became a world champion in cricket – twice.
LOL!!
BTW, Didn't the West Indies hold the (79) World Cup in 81-82 as well?! Therefore, it is almost certain they won't win this one. All good things come to an end, right?! They have the negative impact of planet "C-LLOYD1969-2016" over their karmas. As long as this planet holds on to its "WICB" position, they ain't winning nothing.

So if the pattern follows (same day matches played by a country's mens and womens team), England men will beat New Zealand to reach the final

I watched a program called Mid Wicket tales yesterday for sometime and the episode was about IND-PAK rivalry.
Towards the end many of the writers and experts were saying that we just can't match the Pakistani public hospitality towards our spectators when they go to Pak to watch the match. It was also mentioned that IND and PAK players are very good friend off the field. I have been listening to Shoaib Akhtar and Viru's Hindi commentary and can really feel the warmth between the two. The commentary is funny but at the same time their subtle teasing of each other feels good but at the same time both have immense respect towards each other.

Don't tell me! Anyways, it takes all but one break in the chain to end all the mystery about this men-women pattern.
Meanwhile, Australia women have defeated England women to clich the title. This means, if our carwatcher's rule does indeed hold, Morgan's Englishmen are gonna win the WT20 this year! Ouch! Although I have to say, it doesn't sound unlikely at all. To defeat England in the WT20 final, if at all, it'd take West Indies with their firepower and a raft of in-form T20 specialists. We don't have bite in the bowling, form in the batting (except Kohli), and truth be told the Indian side is looking more like a One-day side rather than a T20 unit. Plus, there is way too much nonsensical hype being created about the non-existent 'strength' of our team, and I honestly wouldn't be too fond of seeing all that nonsense talk being carried till (and amplified at) the finals. An ENG v WI final would be quite the spectacle this time. Even better if it turns out a last-ball thriller.

I get the feeling toss is becoming crucial in such games! Offcourse one has to play good cricket as well. The good thing about the English team is that their openers come out all guns blazing as if its a 5 over match. Something which our out of form openers should learn. England has some big hitters in their line-up, they could find it difficult at the Eden Gardens if the ball grips a bit. They also do not have a quality spinner.
Hope we pick Rahane tonight as he has been warming the bench for too long. Though he isn't the ideal no. 4 in T20 but he knows the Wankhede very well.
