Congratulation to Saurav Ganguly.....................Played Extremely Well...............May be it is Called "Rajoshik Prottaborton".

India 247/3 43rd Over Running. The Final Score Should be More than 300.

Accolades to Chanderpaul for such never-say-die attitude. WI can still pull it off!

WOW!! What a fightback by Chanderpaul!!

Still India will sneak the win.

20 runs reqd. from the final over. Can WI pull it off?

Miraz
January 21, 2007, 06:42 AM
So close, yet so far :)

India finally won by 14 runs. One of the best ODI innings by Chanderpaul for losing cause, 149* (136).

Ganguly sealed his place in both form for at least another year.

Sovik

great entertaining match. hoping windies will win the next match

DADAs masterclass helped India pull one back. Wonder what the coach will say now. ;)India now stands a good chance in the WC, that is, if they can pass the Bangladesh hurdle. ;). What a difference one man makes. I actually liked him better when he was out of the team. Now that he is back, hopefully ha has learned some humility and he won't pick up his other hobby - going after our cricket. What we do with our cricket and our test status should not be his personal business. He should focus on his own career. I predict a 3-1 finish for India only because they are playing at home. :)

This is The Second time in ODI When Chanderpaul Fight Alone and Score Century. 149 Not Out, But His Team Couldn't Win........................In This Flat Batting Track, Bowlers Were Totally Vernarable. Finally Congratulation to India and Good Luck to Both Team for The Next Match.

Damn India and Lanka looking really good...we will be crushed. They scored 338 in 50 overs. I wonder what our pacers, extra slow medium, SLAs' will do against them!

In the Ranji semifinal between Mumbai and Baroda today, Mumbai lost its first five wickets before scoring a run.

http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/india/engine/current/match/263125.html

They have since recovered and are likely to win the match.

India won the second odi by 20 runs. Looks like they are getting their form back right before the world cup. Being at home also help. Its really sad how Sachin looks so lost in the middle. He did make up for his duck with some good bowling today. Are they going to keep playing with two wicket keepers? India is always known to have quality batsmen but looks like only their keepers can bat nowadays.

BangladeshFan
January 24, 2007, 04:33 PM
any batsman will struggle on those low / variable bounce wickets. i think india needs sehwag back. forget south africa, on indian wickets sehwag is as good as anyone. also they need to have munaf and pathan back. there should be a toss up between agarkar and sreesanth.

Imteaz
January 24, 2007, 10:21 PM
Wicket was Dusty so Bowlers (Specially Spinners) got Help. Congratulation to India. What should be told about Chanderpaul? He is not a Good Finisher. Finally, The Umpiring was not Up to Standard. I Think India Should Aware of Because Their Performance always Increase in Home Soil. So.............................

Good Luck to India and West Indies for The Next Match.

india had the chance to score 350+ but windies came back strong and kept the series alive.

January 27, 2007, 08:14 PM
yes i am very happy to see west indies back on track. well done samuels. maybe u didnt get the century but i am sure that will not bother u too much as your team won...

Imteaz
January 27, 2007, 10:26 PM
Tendulkar and Dravid Played according to Their Class...............I don't want to say about AR Uthappa because his innigns was in their home soil. Lots of Batters of India Played a Good Innings in Home Soil but cannot perform well in un usual condition. So, Uthappa need to be judged later on. Don't Know why Indian batting line-Up couldn't score 300+ after such a good start. Bravo Bowled beautyfully.

Samuels and Lara Played two excellent innings but lara should finish the match. He became too aggresive and lost his wicket. Agarkar made a good start by picking two quick wicket but other bowlers did very bad. Specially Srisanth. Indian bowlers bowled 25 wide ball. You cannot expect to win the match in such a Batting Favour Condition when you provide 25 wide ball. So they Payed for that.

Congratulation to West Indies and Good Luck to Both Team for The Next Match.

Give me a reason why not to worry about the battings of recent Ind matches...300 runs...shouldn't we really worry. Now I am scrared, I was not hoping for any upset but a good fight and moral boosting performance, but now I see we really have to give our 100% to salvage a respectable loss!!

I am happy for Tendulkar, scared for Bangladesh.

why scared? when has india NOT scored big at home?

even indias complain that BCCI stupidy in making porota flat wickets does nothing but inflate indian batsman's averages and then india sinks in sporting conditions abroad.

al Furqaan
January 31, 2007, 02:51 PM
bottom line is that if india were bowled for 50, i wouldn't be any more hopeful than i am now, and similalily a 160+ win against WI doesn't scare me one bit.

sadi
January 31, 2007, 04:14 PM
Well pitches in West Indies and India are pretty similar and that why we should worry to see all of their frontline batsmen getting some runs under the belt. Its all about confidence with these great performers like Sachin, Dravid and Ganguly. Talent is there, we all know that. I just don't like the timing.

this same india team beat the same windies team 3-1 at home, and 4-1 loss in WI.

pitch maybe very similar. but the fact that india was on the road, made it harder.

therefore we will be on a level playing field with them vis-a-vis those factors.

BangladeshFan
January 31, 2007, 07:51 PM
yah, indian wickets are good for batting and tailor made for their batsmen all of whom are good front foot players and drives. and that infact works against them when they go to wickets like in south africa where there is bounce and pace. the success of ganguli as opener will actually work against india because i am sure he will be an easy target of pacers in the world cup. i wonder what a blazing combination uthapa and sehwag would have been.

but i am happy for tendu, it is a good answer to people who say that he is finished. i supported him ever since he started playing for india. even with half fit physique or slower reflexes, he is still tendulkar.

Imteaz
January 31, 2007, 09:43 PM
Congratulation to India...........May be They Won in Home Soil but They Won. Hope Indians Do Not Become Over-Confident and Start to Think that They Have Got Their Form For World Cup. In World Cup The Situation will be Totally Different. At-Least After Group League.

Indian Media Already Started to Compare India with Other ODI Teams like South Africa or Newzealand or Srilanka. But, I am Sure India Lost Themselves When This Team Play Abroad. it Will be Far Way Tougher for Them.

Finally, Congrtulation Tendulkar for His 41st Century and Other Players. Hope They will Continue with Srilanka as Well.

When they lost the series in WI, most of their batsmen were struggling and were out of form. Playing at home soil and their batsmen getting some runs will definately help India's confidence. I rather face them after a disasterous Australia tour than when they are done winning few series in their home soil.

Tigers_eye
February 1, 2007, 03:33 PM
Doesn't matter of what India or SL are doing. On the day we face them we have to score more runs then they do. Simple equation.

Now that simple equation have complicated strategies.
1. Limit wide and no-balls (leave Taposh on the bench) so that they don't get extra ball to hit.
2. Take catches when dhoni, Tendu flashes. Captain shaheb, nobab Mashrafe are you guys listening???
3. Run Tamim-Aftab lose. Mushfiq will finish it off with Mash on his side.

It is our players that we have to worry about not the opponent players. Eliminating mistakes and capitalizing chances shape up the wins.

Spitfire_x86
February 1, 2007, 10:17 PM
We have to take wickets. Without taking wickets, it will be very hard to contain either SL or Indian batting lineup. If they score 250+, then we have almost zero chance of winning.

3rd and 4th ODI of the India/WI series show the of value of taking wickets in ODI.

FaltuRidwanBhai
February 1, 2007, 11:17 PM
the most important thing is not to let the opponent build storng partnership
