After a comphensive victory a couple of days ago, a lot was expected of the indian team. though they performed quite well today but failed miserably in a few aspects like the middle order collapse. all in all it was an interesting game which went down to the wirw, but i would want to mention one thing i felt during the latter part of the pakistan innings. i started to feel that pakistan would win the match no matter what. all of us must have noticed that the touring side always wins. we go to pakistan and return victorious and vice versa. i wouldn't be shocked at all if pakistan eventually won the series. what do you think?

as per my feelings it was shock for me they couldnt restrict them when they were in such a bad situation but also pakistan won it so easily what a waste of a match india need to get some goodopening bowlers and remove zaheer and rp singh they cldnt bowl them to wicket to wicket and lost because of them i think agagrkar shld be brought back and we cant burden our spinners the responsiblilty of winning us the game.......a big mistake of dropping kzartik also he is top of his form and they drop him i think how come indian selectors function they need to think before making a decision and not run behind sachin ganguly dravid to retire and retire..............aussies are the best because of their game and not because they are 34 or 35 ........see hayden who is playing so well and he si arnd 36 or 38 we need to learn from them

NO Way i think pakistan can win.. they only won on the virtue of their good luck.. Younis khan and yousuf youhana were plump lbw... but were not given.. uthappa was not out.. sachin on luck..continued.. catched dropped.. it was just their day tht they won... India will definately Win The series..

Oh man, that was a realy an intresting match. India played well but still losed it. I think that this time luck favoured Pakistan. Younis and Shahid Afridi played very well due to which Pakistan won the match..... This time luck didnt favoured India. Sachin also missed his century just by 1 run! There was a time in the match where it was amost impossible for Pakistan to win the match but still they made it! They played realy well...... No problems at all, there are still 3 matches left and I am sure that India will definately win the series!!!

I will call it the perfect Indo-Pak match. The match turning from India to Pakistan then back to India and this periodic cycling continued until Afridi scored the last run and sealed the match with Pakistan being the victorous team. It was a so close encounter that it could be anybody's game and Pakistan also had plenty of luck with them.. Catches of Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi were dropped, althought hese were very diffcult chances, but sometimes they sort of half-chances cling when luck goes your way... It's always good to see a tight balance game. We can't expect our home team to win every time. They fought, they tried their best, may be next time they are the winners.. But the way pakistan chased 322 (the highest ever runs on the Mohali ground in any innings) is appreciable.. Hope we will be able to see few more tight matches like this in the series.. Cheers

Well we could have won the game man ! Zaheer is the reral cause for our loss . I wanna ask a question why is he still in our team ? That also with A Grade ? India is a great country with a lot of talented players . All other teams such as pakistan , new zealand, australia , wet indies etc have great fast bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar , Shane Bond , Muralitharan , Brett Lee etc etc - Our Players just get scared listening their name itself , but there is not even a single player in indian cricket team !!! Whats the reason behind that ? Do you think we really dont have such players ? NO not at all . Many of young talented players dont get chances . And according to me Zaheer should really get replaced by some other good players
