Unpredictable Indian Team
March 19, 2007 11:28pm CST
Some sigh of relief to Indian Cricket fans. Indians scored 413 runs, creating a new world record. The much criticized Virendra Sehwag scored a good 114. But the way he was batting, one would not like to compare his earlier innings. Would this mean, he can score easy runs when he wants? This kind of factor has been attributed to many Indian Cricketers earlier too. " It happens only in India ". We should only hope that this easy scoring runs continue and they play to their potential.

Despite the so-called victory over unknown Bermuda, one worrying factor is still so many dot balls (120 + I think) and had they not hit sixes, fours the result would have been as bad as against B'desh. The strategy is not good by any standard. And if they continue this... we know the result against SL. Indians please wake up and play for the country with ease.

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.

Yes, absolutely! The match against Bermuda should be seen as just a match, organised to make records and give practice to Batsmen! India trually took everything it could extract out of the match, this time not making any blunders like what they did against Bangladesh. Except Dhoni, who can be said to be a bit unlucky, everybody took advantage of the opportunity! But we need not be too happy, as India haven't done anything very great! Bermuda were so poor at bowling that even "Gully cricket" players of India could score good against them! India have to show their prowess against better teams. Lets see what World Cup has more for Indian supporters!
