    India's middle order issue is there in T20 as well since India never really had any plan or anything when they pick T20 squad. Random players getting the rotation. Rohit and Dhawan should skip as well. But loss of their place in the Test side will force them to cling on to theirspot.

    Yep, poor planning by Kohli & Shastri. As I said earlier as well, I'm sick of seeing this 2 walk out to bat in all LoIs we play.

    Rohit still compensates somewhat for his tuk tuk with big hits every now and then, something Dhawan hardly ever does which is proved by his poor record in this format.

    He is there for 20 ball stay. His attention issues never allowed him to go on to have a decent career. If he doesn't have time he is good. If he has time he flunks. Be it is a catch or batting. If the catch is in the air long time he will drop. if he has very little time to react he holds on to it.

    Yeah, he does seem to have attention span issues. Pity really. I remember him doing so well in our '07 Eng tour. And then THAT catch in T20 WC'07 in SA game!

    Yup. He is definitely not the best T20 opener that India has. But by default he is playing all. I think they are using this T20 to give practice to Dhawan. Still what is the point.

    He has always been a poor T20 player and his record suggests that as well.

    Good observation! That's what happens when you introduce players to Tests First! Let's hope that he becomes a stronger prospect in future playing all formats equally well unlike Dhoni who never made impression in Tests!

    So it is about gifting 1 consolation win of big margin to the opposition in a series! India perhaps gifted CT to Pakistan also in the same way! Actually this has something to do with some misplanning in the team rather than poor play on the given day!

    Ironically he looks good in tests lol He is losing his balance every time he tries a shot. But that was a nice drive from him 40(28) doesn't tell the whole story. He wasn't timing well mostly

    Judging by the amount of Indians there , I think it's safe to assume that anyone in NZ with even so much as a remote link to India was present in the stadium.
    It was 99% brown with a few token white people here and there.
    Does Auckland really have that much of us?

    India got lucky with the Mitchell decision. Otherwise they would've been chasing 230.

    Ahh yes there is quite a few especially in Auckland. Even down in the less multi cultural south island there is a significant Indian population.

    Went to the game, it was pretty fun even though we lost.

    Got to see Dhoni play live for the first time and Rohit played a great knock, so I'm good.

    Crowd went wild when Dhoni came out to bat, it's a shame he couldn't finish it with six. Everyone was expecting him to finish it with 6.

    You could've held a placard so that the PPers could identify.

    It was good throughout, was something else when Dhoni came out to bat. The fans love him.

    Most of the fans in the crowd from what I saw cheered for both teams. Kane got a pretty good reception when he was announced and came out to bat.

    The fans definitely pumped up the Indian girls up for the match earlier in the day too. Brought them back into the game when it looked like NZ was going to win easy.
