14 runs in first over with pathans name mentioning I thought India started a great and pathan batting like pathan. Oooops!! Then while checking the scorecard i saw so many noballs and wide? this is a 45 over match. What is he trying to do? make it a 50 over match?

Sovik

fire was set by gayle and morton. this is going to be a exciting match. and the batting power that india has, west indies will need to score 270+ to win this match

windies have a chance to accelerate against agarkar in slog overs.

bharat

My bet is on Agarkar ..(positively for once :-) ))

Sovik

bharat

Baundule

These days Agarkar seems much matured than before.
I hope, he will continue his old style of giving at least one 4 ball in every over :)

Tigers_eye
May 18, 2006, 11:19 AM
I am just loving the commentary!! The guys are so excited the atmostphere is so upbeat. I can picture things clearly.

Baundule
May 18, 2006, 11:19 AM
Probably a run out. The familiar west Indies collapse starts?

Just home. Thanks God!!!!

Baundule
May 18, 2006, 11:21 AM
A no ball to end the over :lol:

Tigers_eye

I have a question?
For a 45 over game is the restricked overs still 20?

Miraz
May 18, 2006, 12:39 PM
WI are progressing to a challenging total. India has to bat very well if WI can post anything over 250.

Sovik
May 18, 2006, 12:41 PM
restriction should be 18 overs for 45 over game

gayle having his best day...on 123 now.

he is pure class, i would love nothing more than to see the Windies rise again.

indian pacers, other than aggy looked terrible outside of home. course its only 1 match.

Sovik
May 18, 2006, 01:46 PM
what is chanderpaul doing. only 4 overs left and no big hitting from him

Tigers_eye
May 18, 2006, 02:04 PM
251 not bad.
This will be fun for india to chase.

Sovik
May 18, 2006, 02:17 PM
chanderpaul should have been more aggressive. apart from gayle no one was agressive. may be it was not so easy to bat on that pitch

bharat
May 18, 2006, 02:31 PM
Good Match on the Cards ...but India has to keep in mind that a quick shower might skew things up ..they need to get a good start and keep the momentum up ...:)

bharat
May 18, 2006, 03:06 PM
Made me smile though T should share this ...
>>Cricinfo commentry ...

arrgh! now a no-ball. West Indies are playing perfect hosts here. 11 extras already, 4 wides and 2 no-balls

Back to the match ...

Cant say ...an excellent start by India (compared to the previous chases ..) but they are doing a good job , atleast till now !:up:

Sovik
May 18, 2006, 03:15 PM
ten overs but 12 extras already.

bharat
May 18, 2006, 03:20 PM
India can quickly get into trouble now !! .Hope India gets a partnership going here :-/

Is there anyway to watch the WI tour of India from Internet? Any free streaming? plz let us know.......thanks.....

bharat
May 18, 2006, 06:18 PM
Good fight by WI in the end .

I think India played really bad ..they need to pull there socks up for the rest of the matches if they plan make it a clean sweep !

Sovik
May 18, 2006, 06:23 PM
bad performance by windies too. they couldn't score at the end of the innings

cricket_pagol
May 18, 2006, 06:37 PM
Poor fielding by west Indies made sure that they cannot win the game... WI batting at the end of the innings was horrible too. More maturity is needed... I guess they did put up a pretty good fight at the end.

As for India, Kaif was very lucky, if India lost he would have been kicked out of the team... He nearly lost the game for India.

Kamini
May 18, 2006, 11:30 PM
Kaif should be dropped.

vv_sunil
May 19, 2006, 12:04 AM
what a splendid performance from Rahul Dravid. A captains knock really. I dont think if there is any other player is around committed for the team than dravid

prasad
May 19, 2006, 12:53 AM
poor slection cost wi.dwayne smith shud have played instead of samuels.

DJ Sahastra
May 19, 2006, 01:23 AM
Definitely not an impressive performance from the Indian team overall. Hope it gets better.

Baundule
May 19, 2006, 03:04 AM
I forgot when i last saw WI winning a competitive match (after that Champion's Trophy win). At times, they are in supreme touch and in the next moment they are making horrible mistakes. By the end of the day, almost always, they are the 'fighting loser'; not the 'fighting winner'.

But this is for the first time (I am a die-hard WI supporter), I want WI to lose the series 5-0. Not for Inidia's cause, though ;) It will eveporate all their confidence and give BD some chance to take that advantage in the Champion's Trophy.

Baundule
May 19, 2006, 03:06 AM
Kaif should be dropped.
Good observation, kamaini. Completely aggree with you, plus Dada should be called back ;)

Sovik
May 19, 2006, 05:45 AM
west indies's fielding is the poorest of all

allrounder
May 19, 2006, 09:53 AM
India without Ganguly is turning out to be a much better team. Dravid is really doing great both with the bat and as a captain.

Sovik
May 20, 2006, 09:43 AM
agarkar got gayle. this series will be over by 23rd may.


can anybody provide me any link to watch this match live. please

Sovik

Now it's Lara's time to post a fighting total.

Sovik
May 20, 2006, 01:10 PM
sarwan played a good innings. hope he scores a century

allrounder
May 20, 2006, 01:11 PM
From the way India is palying, India will win Champions Trophy and will go to the WC final against Aus, dont know who will win then.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:19 PM
WI did well to reach 198 from 6/105

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:20 PM
INDIA played poorly .They should have bowled out WI within 150.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:23 PM
and it's Sarwan's fault that he didn't get his century,could have have scored a little fast at the end ...maybe he was more interested in hhis teams total

Yameen
May 20, 2006, 01:23 PM
yes i agree, a good recovery from the windies, as india should have wrapped the innings up earlier, but a very good knock from sarwan...

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:24 PM
W Indies finally showing its true colors . What a degradation of a world class team !

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:28 PM
WI languising in 8th ranking need to do a lot of climbimg.They have so much talent yet they fail to click..Its a mystery to unravel the WI failures....is it psychological ??????

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:31 PM
Anyway ,I think INDIA has 85% chance to end the series 5-0 and 90% for 4-1 and 95.99% for 3-2,50% for 2-3 and 10% for 1-4.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:34 PM
India should have batted first ,at least we could have enjoyed some fireworks from the FAMOUS and WORLD-CLASS indian middle order batters....

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:35 PM
and lastly this is CRICKET ...India still might lose

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:36 PM
..and that will be a UPSET

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:39 PM
personally , I think India needs a lot of improvement if they want to be the WC 2007 finalists...Hope Sachin's return may drive more hunger for better performance.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 01:42 PM
Right now Aus,SA and Pak are the only teams India has to watch out for.India's ODI record is climbing up steadily but improvements in Test cricket a must.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 02:15 PM
Sehwag out....

Captain
May 20, 2006, 02:18 PM
India 25/1 in 5.4 overs...Sehwag needs a lesson..he should be dropped for the next game and Uttappa be given a chance.Sehwag is taking his place as granted.He really should be dropped for a match at least.

Captain
May 20, 2006, 02:19 PM

when they lose or if they lose.

If U r so sure and want it
to happen ,we will see that after the series is really over..
no point talking 'bout it now and wasting time...But
My prediction india will easily win both the series.
I am curious though why do majority of BD fans want India to
lose against any opposition..if that's the case then the
vice versa should be acceptable to the BD fans.

why do israelis hate hamas? why did malcolm mistrust whites? why did the browns accuse OJ? why does the world hate hitler? why does society loathe sex predators?

quite frankly, we have accepted that india will not host us anytime soon.

frankly, until a few months ago, i could have cared less who wins in India cricket matches. i would have just gone for the under dog. but since it has become evident that the BCCI is not a whole lot more respectable than a pimp who screams "hoe, where's my money!", and has decided that it is above and beyond the ICC and as such should not have to play Bangladesh, i will always root for the team playing against india. and that won't change probably even if india decides to host us.

just be damn happy that we just root for the other team and we don't undermine your cricket.

india may have 'misunderestimated' the Windies abilities a la bangladesh 2004.

but dropping yuvy would be a terrible idea. drop sehwag, he hasn't done anything recently. i think he is one of india's most hyped batsman. averages just around 30. if kaif has done as bad as ppl say, i would say drop him too. but who will fill in the shoes.

btw, where is ghambir? he played in the BD series but hasn't featured much since then. plus they need 2 specialist openers.

anyways, i hope the windies win this and the test series

Bancan,me and my cousin were watching it live on TV on a saturday night.As the match was a bit slow ,we thought it would be a good idea ,if I posted 100 posts.So, as a parallel process started sending updates,scores,RR,balls remaining etc every 1 min or so and in the process maybe scared Sovik and other guys who were following this thread before ,anyway they came back at the end of the match and with WI winning.
WI is one of my fav teams and it has been hurting me seeing their decline in recent times...India after their recent success are touted as favorites in ODI's and the expectancy is more,so if they lose this series to WI,lot of anti-India fans will start pointing fingers that India's recent success was in the sub-continent only,this and that and blah blah...So I am hoping ardently they win this series convincingly atleast by 4-1.Even then their ICC points won't increase from 116.

India's ICC Points ICC Points
Result (India) (W Indies)

4-1 116 to 116 90 to 90
3-2 116 to 115 90 to 92
2-3 116 to 113 90 to 95
1-4 116 to 111 90 to 98

Even if WI lose the series by 1-4 ,they won't lose a single ICC ODI point.
BTW,lets hope for some good cricket ,the first two mathces were very close,that's
good for cricket.

As for BCCI that's their decision maybe they don't want to see empty stands and go for losses.But,I do believe it's time to host BD team in India.BCCI thinks they initiated Bangladesh entry in test cricket and they didn't got even a little bit of kudos for that.Anyway BCCI has become very professional now and primarily thinks in terms of financial gains.

If you found me arrogant..then I suggest you use the same yardstick and you will find hundreds of arrogant fans in this forum.I don't know what is 'atrocracy' but if you meant atrocity then the feeling is mutual.Anyway this is a cricket forum let's refrain from politics .

India got a good jolt and they will come good in the remaining matches.Utthappa still needs to sort out some of prblems against fast bowling.Still,I think he should replace Sehwag in the 3rd ODI,if he comes good Sehwag will find his place threatened and discard his casual attitude.Sehwag will remain as Sehwag though,that's his style, all he need is a good fright for his place in the team.Kaif should be dropped and Venugopal should be brought in (if he in the 16)and Sreesanth should come in place of Munaf.

Dear Captain,
I am not going to make a fight with an arrogant fan like you. You can write whatever you want glorifying Indian Cricket/cricketers or humilating cricket of Bangladesh in so many indian fan sites; not here. Those forums sucks so much that i never visited a site second time. Some of the most funniest knowledgble cricket fan(?) i found on those sites like one comparing Agarkar with Razzak as allrounder, Irfan with Wasim Akram or Munaf Patel is faster than Shoeib and Lee. While I am member of SL , WI, Aus cricket forums.Please remember it is forum of Bangladesh cricket fans. Not respecting host is also arrogancy. Regarding comments on India/ Pakistan or for that matter any other nations consider those as in house not intended to be hear by guests. You found we are arrogant. Better ask Prasad, Bharat, DJ.

Atkinson promises lively pitch in St Kitts


Andy Atkinson, the ICC's pitch consultant, had positive remarks about the pitch prepared for the third Test between India and West Indies in St Kitts, and suggested that the fast bowlers should benefit from it.
Atkinson was flown in at the request of Ricky Skerrit, former manager of the West Indies team and currently the country's sports minister, following Brian Lara's plea to produce lively tracks for the remaining Tests in the series in order to force a result. The first two Tests, in Antigua and St Lucia, ended in draws.
"Well, this one wouldn't have too much of grass but there would be plenty of life otherwise," Atkinson told Press Trust of India. "The trouble is, captains request for a lively wicket but the moment the ball starts flying around their ears, they go out and slam curators."
Atkinson, who has overseen the preparation of 18 pitches worldwide, was earlier appointed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in 2001 to prepare result-oriented tracks after a few Tests ended in dull draws. He played a significant part in India's tour of Pakistan in 2003-04, where the pitches in all three Tests - at Multan, Lahore and Rawalpindi - produced results.
Atkinson however, disagreed with Sunil Gavaskar's recent comment (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/content/story/249302.html) that the biggest problem in cricket is slow pitches.
"If you look at the results in the last decade, there have been more results in the past one decade than there have been in entire history of the game. So obviously Sunny (Gavaskar) is not quite right on it," he said. "However, organisers do want a pitch to last for five days so that everyone's interest is met, the spectators', the administrators' and the biggest of them all, the TV people who bring in the money. They don't want the match to finish in three days."
Atkinson also refuted the popular belief that slow pitches are prevalent only in the subcontinent and the West Indies, after conducting laboratory tests.
"Surprisingly, when I took the soil of an Indian pitch for laboratory tests in England, I found the clay content of the soil wasn't too different from the one which is used in faster pitches around the world like Perth, Brisbane or Johannesburg.
"But may be the groundstaff isn't too conversed with preparing pitches. The trend worldwide is to bring in former cricketers to prepare pitches. But being a former cricketer is no guarantee that they know the subject of pitch-making which can be quite complicated."
