I think fielding is as important as batting and bowling in cricket. But Indian cricketers except Yubraj and Kaif seem to neglect it . We seldom see an Indian cricketr diving and throwing his body to save a run or a boundary . Do you think India can win withiout accepting and acting on this truth ?

I think India will win this time around. I think this is the perfect chance for India to win the WC, because this time we are having well balanced squad with Experienced and Youth. India is having the strongest batting line up, likes of Sachin, Sourav, Dravid, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Sehwag etc, most of the players are in form and making valuable contributions for the team. India is having a strong team as compare to last WC squad, Now Inclusion of Dhoni, Pathan, sreesant, munaf, uttappa made India even more stronger. I think its a golden opertunity for the Indians to win the WC 2007 in West Indies Indian Batting mainly Depend on Sachin Tendulkar, He has a wonderful career so far, he made more runs than any one else in Odis and also tons, he can bowl seam up leg spin offspin, his bowling s an asset for INDIA, Sehwag, on his day he can belt any bowling line up he can bowl and he is a partnership breaker, Sourav, he has wonderful timing, after sachin he scored more runs for India, he can bowl and he is partnership breaker, Dravid is called THE WALL for his consistency, he is Mr dependable, Yuvraj is stylish left handed batsman, Dhoni a dangerous wicket keeper batsman, he can score 100 in 50 balls and also plays according to the situation. Indian bowling line up is also good, munaf is excellent with newball, ajit is great at reversing the ball. Zaheer is peak of his career, Irfan is young and brightful all rounder for India, Sreesant an aggressive wicket taking bowler, and not to mention about Harbhajan, he is class act, Anil Kumble a dangerous leg skidder rather than a spinner, he experience will benefit India in this WC. Biggest counter part AUS is struggling with injuries and lost their 6 out of 7 matches prior to the WC 2007 which includes a white wash in the hands of New Zealand, and loosing finals CB series finals to England 2-0.

yea you are right here in, every game of the cricket india played , is like always neglacting the field and the fielding also, even they havent yet realised only batting and bowling will not do much difference....... as active the member , as the match is in the favour.... i sometimes feel like it may be because of fielding only india is loosing all the time, and yes i can say yuvraj and kaif are good player , we can say all rounders for india atleast.......lets hope the best and men in blue gets world cup for india ........cheers

Yes India can win the world cup without improving his fielding just on the basis of her batting...

even today against bermuda if they have fielded well they might have restricted them below 20 runs.so that we might have some more net run rate.but they didn't had that much fire as the bangladeshis or like the new kid ireland.So there is a tire need for improvement in fielding and if they improve fielding and replace agarkkar by pathan then only we can dream for a berth in the super eight.
