As per cricinfo.com the probable team is:

<b>India</b> 1 Sachin Tendulkar, 2 Virender Sehwag, 3 Sourav Ganguly (capt), 4 Rahul Dravid, 5 Yuvraj Singh, 6 Mohammad Kaif, 7 Mahendra Dhoni (wk), 8 Irfan Pathan, 9 Harbhajan Singh, 10 Lakshmipathy Balaji, 11 Murali Kartik.

<b>Pakistan</b> 1 Shahid Afridi, 2 Salman Butt, 3 Shoaib Malik, 4 Inzamam-ul-Haq (capt), 5 Yousuf Youhana, 6 Abdul Razzaq, 7 Kamran Akmal (wk), 8 Arshad Khan, 9 Mohammad Sami, 10 Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, 11 Danish Kaneria.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Indian team probable looks ok. But in Pakisatn team probable, I doubt both Kaneria and Arshad will play. I think either one of them will be IN and Md. Hafiz will be in. Younis Khan is sick so he is out from 1st one-day.


They are predicting high score. Whoever bats first need to score 300+.

The side seem evenly matched. I would still give the edge to Pakistan because of their confidence level after that fantastic win.

I think it's going to be far closer than that. Although I'll give a slight edge to Pakistan, a 3-3 draw is quite possible.

I think 4-2 Pakistan or 3-3 draw is most likely. I would hate for a drawn series though. This will be a very exciting ODI series. Go Pakistan.

India 195-2 after 33 overs...Those dropped chances of Sehwag is proving to be very costly indeed.....Rana Naved seems to be continuing from where he left off in the VB series Down under......The track is so true that I feel even 350 is atainable if Pakistan can bat with a bit of common sense.....

Sultan
April 2, 2005, 01:13 AM
Finally. Sehwag departs. Razzaq bowled this dude out. He was a menace.

Shehwar
April 2, 2005, 01:16 AM
Yeah...looks as if he can do no wrong against Pakistan.....

Balaji goes!

Arshad Khan to Balaji, OUT: another one bites the dust! on the stumps, Balaji moves across and swings hard eyeing the square leg fence, misses the target by miles and gets bowled, Arshad Khan strikes again.

India 269/8 (49 ov)

India 281/8 after 50 overs..Pakistan shud be chasing this pretty easily if they can overcome the awesome heat and humidity of Kochi...cheers...

Indian innings done. India ends up with 281. Now lets see what Pakistan comes up with.

Sultan
April 2, 2005, 02:20 AM
At one stage India were looking at a total beyond 300 but Pakistan came back strongly in the finals overs. They picked up wickets at regular intervals and slowed down the scoring rate. 282 is the target for Pakistan.

Looks as if common sense is something the batters out there will have to develop.....u guys have to see the shots three of them played in space of 6-7 deliveries to believe it!!....

India winning by a massive margin...Pakistan never looked like winning it after losing those 3 quick wickets....Great effort by Tendulkar with the ball...Proved me completely wrong...Cheers...

Serves Pakistan right... they always give that mofo Sehwag lifes by dropping him and not running him out... not to mention Dravid was out on LBW but not given...

Oh well... Pakistan was outplayed... well done India...

Momentum is in India's favor now... Pakistan's chances of winning this series are down the gutter... they will be lucky to get 3-3 result.

Razzaq's dismissal is the worst of the lot - a fulltoss atleast two feet outside the legstump.

Thanx Tintin for the link.
looking at the match- India surely deserved to win as Pakis were outplayed in all depts.
However I'm a little skeptical about Tendulkar's bowling tactics. I for some reason find it negative bowling, when he got all his wickets bowling around the wickets. But then again the result is that he got a 5-for; and thats what counts.
But yes, Pakis should lose if they drop catches. They have this tendency of become too arrogant and complacent very often.
Anywayz hope its more competitive the next game although my current favorite player, Younis Khan, will be rested for todays game! but lets hope he makes an impact to the team with his energy and exhuberance!
