Virat out. Dilshan pulled a sharp catch.
Interesting to watch how we guys take it from here. Hope they wont let settle any of the bowlers esp Murali.

EDIT: Dhoni In. This is positive stuff from the captain.

Atleast Sehwag(to an extent) and Sachin have scored in other matches. Kohli has got good starts but failed to convert it to big ones.

Good that Dhoni came. More singles which means more pressure on Lankans..

Malinga, the chucker, into attack. Hope Dhoni n Gambi handle him well this spell.
Would love to watch someone thrash him black n blue.
Out of 24 overs remaining, 12 overs will be bowled by Malinga n Murali.

Dhoni has come in again to break the momentum of the innings, like he has done throughout the cup

We have a batting line up but am disappointed to see people cribbing as soon as we loose 2 wickets. Is it love for cricket or just Sachin?

Cmon team India do it for us.

I guess Dhoni up the order is good. We need Raina n Yuvi in last 10 overs or so.
While typing this, a stumping missed for Gambi

Kohli has done his job, there is no need to criticize him. The chuckers are to be criticized.

Dhoni should play captain innings and let gambhir play his natural game.

Hope we will win this cup. The last thing I want to see is cup in the hands of CHUCKERS.
Dhoni is doing good.
A real captain. At time of need came out ahead of others to stabilize India.

Good job by both batsmen. They should try to get atleast 210-220 by 40th over. There wont be much pressure even if Murali or Malinga bowl during the last 10 overs.

PS: For the first time, I was concentrating on something else(Match) than FOOD during my dinner

Malinga in for another spell. Need to negotiate this period with much caution.

Inching closer towards the Magic number 275

Now I am confident that India can win this match easily. We still have raina, yuvraj as two specialist batsmans and harbhajan can also slog some runs .

So BHPians lets start cheering now
