I for once do not want Australia to lose and India to qualify for semfinal cos they just dont bloody deserve it.
Look at the performances- pathetic.
Yesterday rain saved India again as 300 was on the cards and we know how good the chase would had been in front of oz bowling and fielding.
People who had taken indian team for granted should be kicked out asap.
I dont remember any instance when most of India will be cheering for Pakistan in a match.
Any amount of cheering wont work - Pakis will be very glad to loose their match tomorrow.Who knows,whole of Pakistan might well be cheering for Australia tomorrow.
I vaguely remember a similar situation in the inaugural Asian test championship.Wasim Akram didnt come to bowl ,nor did he use his frontline bowlers,until Srilanka reached a certain score in their second innings so that they could pip India to the finals.Once Srilanka reached it,he himself bowled and also brought in his frontline bowlers to wrap the match.
Impressive. You seem to be slightly more than average fans like us (look at your handle). Would love to see you around on this thread
Thanks but not really impressive - had just gone through those two players' ODI lists looking for a Jan 87 Sharjah match and noticed there was a Sharjah tournament the previous month.
This thread seems a good place to get an answer to something I read recently. Recently read in Cricinfo that Graham Manou who made his debut in the recent Ashes is the fifth keeper to play for Australia since Healy came on the scene in 1988. Three of the other four are Healy, Gilchrist and Haddin. But who is the remaining guy?
Have spent a fair bit of time trying to remember and will probably spend some more wading through old scorecards unless one of you comes up with the name!
