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.

What I gather from reports, batting second on this pitch in Day/Night cricket is very hard. So prepare for a crash.

The toss could make this match competitive, but it chose the other way.

as long as we are going past 200 i'm happy. just hoping that we'll not make the ODI record of biggest lose.

Anything over 200 is bonus for me.
