After conceding 391 defeat is a foregone conclusion in this game. but we still can take a lot out of this match. the pitch is still completely placid and finally our best batsmen have some runs behind them. I think we should forget about chasing the runs and look to go along at 4-5 an over in the first 15 without losing any more than 2 wickets. If we can negotiate the quickies first spell then run scoring would not be too difficult. the key of course would be to have a couple of big partnerships and at least two of our top 5 have to play a big innings.If we bat positively and not gift our wickets away i believe we can score over 250 in this game.
