Great show by our Non playing captain. Hope at least he gives up his captaincy like Ponting.

Looks like Sachin wont ever see a World Cup for India in his career. Wonderful start to the innings and everything goes downhill later on. Time for all those who bought final tickets to sell them to Pakistani fans I guess.

Bhajji gone.
We are not a pressure handling team.
As simple as that.

Hopefully atleast they will play out full 50 overs.

Only hope is now Pakis not so good batting lineup.

Clearly looks like India just want 250 runs. Not less, not more. Everyone around is telling that the match is fixed!

The way Sachin struggled to get out, yeah it seems that indeed the match is fixed.

Hopefully they cross 270 atleast.

you think? from 5 boundaries in 1 over to 1 boundary in 15 overs!

the Indian team has been dragging their feet!! they just crossed 250 in the 48th over!!




49.2 overs and another wicket goes!! zaheer walks! which is good in a way coz all he was doing was try to slog the ball!

Who are these around you? Why do Indians who earn by bucketful need the petty match fixing amounts? To build a friendship bridge with Pak!
I just hope we take the match in the right spirit.

We should at least be thankful that he walked to the other end, and didn't stand his ground in the crease.

260 has a psychological impact.. 250+ will seem too easy to achieve. But 260 will take it to the next level.. See, this is something like Batta's pricing... 499.99 rs will seem not so expensive but 500.00 will feel like expensive.

^^ +1 to that, unlike Zaheer who in wanting to hit some bigges hogged the crease and let Raina wait.

The Indian performance is done and finished. I hope we are done with the bashing of the Indian batting line up, now lets start doing the same for Pakis batsmen then.

All in All Dhoni either needs a big whack on his rear or he must be send back to Ranji levels to spruce up his batting. The look on Nehra's face when he was padded told a lot of things that he has been forced in the team and that he didn't want to go in the field.

saar, Bata pricing is something like 499.95/- not 499.99/-

either ways, not feeling very optimistic now
