Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

Anyway, we have a valid case to say that we were protecting our net run rate by trying to get to 300 rather than get all out at 250 or 280.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

We will probably play BD against the same pitch in two days. Perhaps time to leave out one spinner and play Bhuvi?

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

And New Zealand too if they lose to England. Our net rate is significantly higher than the other teams. We have to lose really badly against BD and SL to not make it to the last 4.

Commentators perplexed why India gave up the chase, especially in the last 10 overs.

:) I am sure they would have calculated all those possibilities. A win does look difficult. So getting to 280 is a good goal in itself IMO.

All teams have some or the other batting issues. Our middle order rarely gets a chance to bat. I still feel VS should have played instead of RP.

^^Yeah, Bhuvi should have played probably. Shami another problem in death overs. Before the start of this match, every one was saying India will blow Eng over but the failure of spin bowling has thrown a big question mark over our world cup chances.

Didn't Kohli didn't take the spinners off while they were going for 90 between overs 10 to 20?

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

Pooch from ignorance: How does state of pitch impact finger-spin vs. wrist-spin, pls? It probably won't.

Or it could win against India or both. India wins against BD, so BD is at 9 points if it wins against Pak and Afg. B...

135/4. Only two more recognized batsmen. Stupid shot selection by Vijay Shankar. He had a century for the taking.

The whole point of playing only 7 batsmen and 4 specialist bowlers is to avoid risky shots like the ones KL Rahul and VS played.
