    I hope pakistan is watching this match very closely and looking at how sensibly indian openers played starc and Cummins .. As counter nile is out of form and other that ther is only zampa as front liner. Stoinis and Maxwell need to be targeted. Very weak bowling attack frm Australia

    Canít say anything about Shaheen but Amir provides a wicket in crunch situations when the going gets tough.

    However Shami can use the new ball much better than Amir atm.

    Agreed.

    See off Starc and Cummins, then absolutely clobber the rest of the bowlers. Very easy to bat against.

    I hope Dhawan releases his autobiography after he finishes his career because I want to know how he conditions himself for ICC tournaments and I'm sure he will have a lot to say about Rohit's selfish batting at the other end in the first 10-15 overs.

    well in Pakistan case usually even if they see off strike bowlers they end up gifting wickets to some part-timer or weak bowlers because they never get out of shell in first 10 to 15 overs.
    where else India got 81 in 15

    Dont know why people call this slow start ,100 runs in 120 balls at no loss is good. They can get to run a ball by 30 overs and then target 350-360 easily only if they save wickets for now, with india middle order collapse is always around the corner ,its not like eng where u effectively dont have tail

    Dhawan is proof of the fact that pressure is self-inflicted. For him, batting in tournaments is no different to batting in bilaterals, and I think the reason why he is more successful in tournaments is because he feeds on the pressure of the opposition bowlers.

    The conditioning of Indian cricketers is top notch. The combination of Dhoni and Gangulyís captaincy, the IPL and the overall improvement in their cricket culture has transformed them into a giant cricket team.

    In my view, they are the only team that stands between England and the World Cup. People need to stop overrating Australia because of myths and perceptions.

    They haven't played a single rash shot and RR reaching 6 RPO. Thats comforting and easy on the eyes..
