We Lost :(
This is a match which many of the Indians and Pakistanis are waiting for.Pakistan players managed well to build the innings.All the credit goes to Mohammed Yousuf and Shoaib Malik for whom nothing is left to prove.Indian bowlers are not upto the mark.Ashish Nehra seems to be doing a good job initially but he failed to control the run rate.Anyway, he managed to get four wickets.Only Ishant Sharma's economy is under five.
Indian batting line up seems to be lacking something without Sehwag and Yuvraj.Sachin and Dravid are the only stable and efficient batsmen.
Sachin Tendulkar : I don't think I have anything to say about our legend.He started the innings very confidently.But he again gave his wicket to a new bowler,which is happening every time.Anyway we can't expect Sachin to play in each and every match.
Gautam Gambhir : He did a very good job in building the innings with Dravid.He played very fast and also got three free hits which helped him in scoring 57.Got runout,I don't think there is a chance of getting a run.. But well done 57 !!!
Rahul Dravid : He proved once again that he is the most dependable batsmen in India.If he was not there, India would have got out may be at 175.He build the innings and showed once again the determination he has.Fantastic innings Rahul !!!
Virat Kohli : I think he needs some more experience to get into Indian team.Today he got a golden chance to prove.But the patience which he needed today lost and finally a bad shot came from him.
M S Dhoni : As a captain I don't think he took a wrong step anywhere.But as a batsmen he failed again.I can't give any points for him as far his batting is concerned.As a captain he should play a responsible innings which didn't happen.
Suresh Raina : Brilliant 46 came from him.Played with a very good strike rate.He got a very good chance to prove that he has one slot in Indian cricket team.He would have contributed more in batting.His fielding is excellent,asusual.
Yousuf Pathan : I never saw him playing a responsibe innings.He can only hit.. hit .. hit.I don't think that it is the way he have to play.He have to change his batting according to the situation.For that he have alot to change.
The remaining players are bowlers.We can't expect them to play an excellent innings unless we have some mantra called LUCK.
Today Dravid,Gambhir and Raina did a good job.
All The Best India for the next match !!!!!!
GO INDIA GO !!!
