Austrailia will make 252 and India will chase it in 43 overs with 4 wickets in hand.

Sachin bowling after a very long time. Last time he bowled against the same Oz way back in 2009.

He has enough records by Bat, hope to create something with the ball today.

250/60 should be a good score.

Guess 260 /65 would be the target India need to chase! The first 10-15 overs in India's batting would be a key factor on how this game would turn.

Aussies should be restricted to a score less than 220. Anything above that will become a challenge since the pitch is very slow and chasing under lights with Brett Lee bowling is difficult.

Oz 237/5 in 47 overs.
Ponting 100* --> two consective hundreds against India in WC.

Last one being in 2003 WC final. More chances that he will be unbeaten this time as well.

As said, Oz closed on 260. Tough task, if at all Indian openers unleash their magical wand.

Keep your heads blue team. Score at opportunities and don't play for the crowd. Keep the run rate nder 6 and we should cruise comfortably.

Thats what is a champion- scores nothing till now but lifts his game up in a CRUNCH game to lead from the front- Ponting. Hats off to who i feel is the only other person other than sachin who has been a class apart, rest are pedestrian compared to these since lara.
Whatever the outcome, this century is a salute to his career.
