Heat is building, 1hr+ to go...i really hope all are key batsmen click and the bowling attack is something worrying me. Munaf should get some pace and good line.

India won the toss, will bat first.

No Ashwin. Nehra in

How is the pitch reported as? Supporting fast bowlers or good for spin?

We do have 3-4 part time spinners(sehwag, sachin, raina, yuvi) in case need arises. so it should be good enough.

lets hope for the best.

Nehra has always been expensive against the Pakistan, they should have stuck to the winning combination from the last match.

The good news is Indian wins the toss, pitch report says 300+ is gettable for team batting first. Let the fireworks from Sehwag and Tendulkar begin.

What a gamble. Think dhoni is using all experienced player against pak, since the pressure and xpectation is high.

But i too prefer sreesanth against nehra. God knows wats running on dhoni's mind.

Absolute belter. It has rained yesterday it seems, so it should hold the moisture and assist seam bowling in the evening. Also dew is a factor.

Nehra in place of Ashwin. What kind of logic is that? Is the pitch fast bowler friendly or what? This change doesn't look good at all.

I think Dhoni will rue his decision of opting for Nehra when the Pak pacers are going for runs. Pacers are proving to be expensive.

Sewag hit 5 boundaries in Umar Gul's over! Gul's been taken to the cleaners

now both Sewag and Sachin have started belting boundaries!

EDIT: what the heck, Sewag got himself out; lbw

Unhappy Re: The Cricket World Cup 2011 thread

Sehwag falls, LBW to Riaz. What a bad luck for sehwag. Few more overs and India would have been in a commandable position.

Sehwag is out. However, that should not deter India from scoring big. I feel a minimum score of 350 is a must to win today. Last time, on the same ground, Pak chased 321 to beat India.

yeah, unless they have a bad case of loose motion like they had against England - lost 7 wickets in a span of 35runs!!

btw, the outfield is very fast! hope this doesn't work against us when we're bowling!!

As so often Sehwag lifts up expectations and then gets out
Disappointing again in a big match
Sachin will prove pak wrong hope so and get hundred!
