It is proved again. The game is totally unpredictable . I an talking about the yesterdays match between India and Australia . India did well but the credit goes to Sachin . Yesterdays match showed the reality of indian team. Younger players are really not dependable.

Hi anjan7. How are you..? I agree with you. Cricket match is such that no one even expert could predict the result. Many many times the predictions of the experts have gone wrong; that too particularly when two teams of almost the same strength play it is very difficult to foresee the result till the last ball is bowled out. That is what has happened in the yesterday's match. Indian team was well within the reach of victory and it was expected that India would certainly win even after the exit of Sachin and Jadeja; and even in the last over when India was in need of 6 runs in the last over and the last pair was in batting still there was a hope India would certainly score the required runs and win because getting 6 runs in the last over that too when they have been hopefully chasing 350 runs was not an impossible task. But there only we believe luck plays its' role. Indian team is equally strong enough to play and win any matches played under any conditions; but timely performance of the players is more important. After all it is a game; we should take it sportively. Thanks for giving opportunity for sharing my views. WITH BEST WISHES.

Sense of responsibility is just not there amongst the youngsters and also a lack of commitment.Specially people like Munaf Patel and Ashis Nehra do not even try to give their 100% on the field. A foolish grin after every miss is what you get from them. On the other hand every Aussie player shows total commitment to the cause. They may not all be very good,but the commitment is there for all to see.

Hi anjan, we can't predict cricket is game of luck at all the times. Sachin played well in yesterday match. But he doesn't have good partnership with other players other than raina. If any of the middle order batsmen stands and have a partnership with sachin, sure INDIA will win the match. Fielding of australian players were really well. we will see the next match whether the luck or hard-work plays.

I agree with you to an certain extent but I believe the game of cricket is slightly less unpredictable as compared to other sports. In cricket most of the time we can presume which team is going to win unlike in cricket except for some couple of teams we know the result. Yesterdays match was a sure shot thriller that proves that ODI has future.
