“If there is anyone out there, who is still wondering why India and Sri Lanka played each other so many times in the last 2 years, they have their answers now. It was all practice for the BIG GAME on April 2, 2011 ”
First India Should Bat First And Be Very Careful For Malinga’s BowlingIf We Rip Top 4 Batsmen Of Sri Lankan Within 25-30 Overs Then They Will Fall From There…GO INDIA GO Take The Title…….
Sri Lanka can be contained
they have brittle middle order which isnt firing
they almost ended up loosing to Kiwis last nite
As i said earlier India or England will win the World Cup
now with Pommies gone…India will win comfortably
Go India Go
no revenge…no comments on 1996 and 2007!
please , win it india…and now i am not ashamed of saying….sachin win this world cup! for us, india, for yourself!!
india, win it for SACHIN!!
If We Win Toss Dhoni Won’t Choose To Field First ^^^Bating First Will Be Tension & Pressure Free For Tail End Struggling Team Like India
historically chasin is difficult and creates lots of pressure on d team battin 2nd…….
so best and easy thin is win d toss and keep enough runs on d board for ur bowlers 2 bowl……….
Nw d big problem for Dhoni is whom 2 play?.
Nehra and Munaf bowled well. But it may nt b suggested tht Mumbai track wil b pacer frndly. so one of thm needs to b dropped for aswin….or may b dhoni may go wit same combination again…………
Yes Most Of The Winning Stream For Dhoni As Captain Came From Defending Totals!Really He Is Good On That…Winning Toss Will Be Very Very Very Important For Us!
At all those who said India produces only flat batting tracks and even 350 is not a safe score in India……
Just look at the scores the teams hav defended against better opposition or defended with formidable bowling……
Only one thing will be sure…… the sub continent will always remain the toughest place to play!!!!!
IMO, Gambhir is very good against spin…
Yusuf can prove to be too good against SL.. but at the cost of Kohli..
1. Kohli had aweful series against Srilanka and virtually lost his place in side.
2. Pathan had some good times against Murali
FYI, Kholi has made his first 50 against SL…… First 100 against SL!!!!
And avg’s 41 against SL wit 5 50′s and a 100!!!!
Kholi is a definite for the final xi and Gambhir may sit out wit Yusuf playing @ No7
You need a good player of spin against srilanka in the middle order.
So,gambhir must play!
yusuf pathan could replace kohli specifically for one reason!!
To counter murali,mendis he is the BEST attacking option..
Last league game… India beat 75 and 79 world cup winner .. i.e. west Indies..
quarter finals … India beat 87 world cup winner.. i.e. Australia..
Semi Finals … India beat 92 world cup winner i.e. Pakistan..
Finals… CAN ? India beat 96 world cup winner as well.. ?
Suraj Randiv included in Srilankan XI in place of Matthews..
As murali said, he will play no matter what… So Vaas is out of question..
We handle murali and mendis reasonably well..
Malinga is the real X-factor..
Indians should take on malinga standing outside the crease.. that is the only way to upset his rhythm..
Yusuf can deposit murali and mendis into the wankhede stands..
More spin centric team.. more I see change for yusuf to excel..
And yeah, kulasekara is dangerous.. his incoming ball with sanga standing up to stumps is really a concern i hv.
If Kohli has to play, it should be one down (the no. 3 spot) thats where kohli delivers or else its useless to have him except in the fielding…
Anyways, I guess Gambhir is not gonna play the final cuz of hamstring injury….. so it will sort everything then giving Kohli one-down position and Yusuf in the side to destroy their spinners….
Chasing against Srilanka will be a difficult task for any batting lineup and especially under lights. They have got variety in the bowling department so our chances of winning the match are by batting first and scoring around 260 or bowling out lanka below 200 if we bowl first.
“Time for Indians to teach Randiv some respect. That idiot denied Sehwag a Century by intentionally giving away four runs in the form of byes .” /
yep i remember that issue
he did it deliberately to viru bhai
hope he trashes that moron in finals
i would just like to try yusuf pathan in place of ashwin
just to add more solidity to batting
u know how yusuf hits these spinners at will
i would just take a gamble if he clicks then srilanka will be mauled completely
comeeeeeeeee onnnnnnnnnnnnnn india….
we have defeated 1975,79 winners wi first
then 87 winners–australia
then 92 einners- pak
now its 96 winners- sri lanka
n india will win the cup by defeating all the former world champs till date…in that order..
TRUE WORLD CHAMPS—->INDIA
