Sachin once again played a fantastic innings and scored 120 runs from 115 balls. His century helped India to build up a very good total of 338 against England. Sachin started his innings slowly but after reaching his half century he played very aggressively. Sachin scored 10 fours and five sixes in his knock of 120. Sachin and Gambhir put up a good partnership for the 2nd wicket . Gambhir scored 51,Yuvi scored 58 and viru earlier played as usually and scored 25 runs. But the tail enders and late middle order collapsed without scoring much. So finnaly looking for the 2nd win in WC India put up a good total of 338 for England. I think India will win this match.

Yes indeed ramaswami an imposing total by India but I am afraid last minute collapse has given some jitters to die hard India fans like me. England have started the chase in great fashion and proceeding at the rate more than required at this stage. The only baller to contain them at this stage is Harbhajan. I hope he does something miraculous in his remaining 4 overs.

Indian lower middle order and Tail collapsed very quickly. Otherwise Inddia should have managed to register a victory

It was a fabulous innings from the master blaster of india. He started little slowly but within few overs after getting the rhythm he never let the bowlers strike on him freely. He hit five sixes which shows that he was really in touch and had the hunger after his miserable out in the last match against bangladesh. He could've batted longer and pile up more runs had they taken the powerplay after couple of overs. Whatever they managed to pile up 339, thanks to gambhir, dhoni, yuvraj who didn't let the master blaster disappointed and kept the flows of runs going.

Yes he in a great form and he is a good form to score runs, He started slowly,but towards the end he was timing the ball with perfection and hit many sixes & fours. Also the other players supported him well .

He is a great player from years and years. In that India bangladesh match,sachin was not in form(it can be said like it),thats why he was out within some time , but sehwag played extremely good, and today just the vice versa was happened. Sachin was in form and made a century. He really rocks in the indian team,with him Sehwag ,Kohli and yuvi. By the way, the whole Indian Team is perfect ! Hip Hip Huraay !

That was his 98 international hundred and the 2nd against England in ODIs. This century also makes him the highest century maker at the world cups with 5 centuries. The master blaster just keeps going. I am pretty sure he will notch up at least one more century in this world cup. Also, more encouraging for India was the fact that Yuvraj is beginning to show glimpses of what he is capable of. Let's hope he comes to form in the latter half of the tournament. Cheers! Ram

ya the master is making records every time. last match he scored the record of playing most number of odi's. In todays match he scored the record of most centuries in world cup. what will be in next match?? I think century in the number of centuries is going to be the big record we are going to see in this world cup. Yuvi triggered a good innings, although he was not in his full form, he played well, scoring a half century would have helped him to gain confidence.

Sachin and other batsmen do really well by setting that target.. But i guess our bowlers are really in bad form that England still manages to tie the score.. At one time India was on loosing stage.. But Thanks to Zaheer's speel Indian manages to tie the match.. With such bowling performance it will be bad to play further matches in this WC.

Hi ramaswami, No doubt that Sachin did his job quite confidently and helped India reach 338. Now look at the bowlers. Neither Harbhajan nor Piyush is able to keep the run flow checked but that is not happening and as England has more wickets in hand they are almost through the game. Is a sad thing to note that one works too hard and the other department has weakness over weakness.
