Well, we are again playing here. Yes, I am surprised and happy that bangladesh has defeated New Zeland. It's a great achievments for minnows. Though Ricky Ponting does not want minnows to play the big matches, I think he has not forgotten how Bangladesh defeated them.
And India showed a very great show especially by Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.
Let's see what happens in the coming days.

Okay, Fire in Hotel is over now and new fire is going to begin within few minutes. with in 25 minutes. Pakistan is going to show its fiery approach against WI. Now, time to deliver. let's see who will win today. I think Pakistan will wins.
I will bet in pakistan's favour 3/1 and in WI as 7/2.............Not because of Cricket but also coz of my exam, I will be awake till late morning(till late morning in the sense, now it is 19.50 PM according to Indian Standard Time in this corner of globe), so, I will be following most part of the today's MAHABHARAT between Pakistani and WI. Will be here with updates and if anyone is there, we can debate as and when we feel.smile.gif

Taking little break from statistics and scores, please read this:
War Of Words Between Former India Captain Sunil Gavaskar And Australia Skipper Ricky Ponting Enters Second Innings
Submitted by Sudhakar Shanbhag on Tue, 2007-03-13 16:14.

The war of words between former India captain Sunil Gavaskar and current Australia skipper Ricky Ponting has entered its second innings.

While Gavaskar opened the innings making a remark on how the Australians badly behaved and abused their opponents, Ponting waged a personal attack on the Indian legend in a Sydney news paper report, terming Gavaskar “high and mighty” for his remarks.

However, the Indian maestro has wasted no time in launching a scathing reaction to Ponting's attack on him.

A combative Gavaskar, as per a report appearing on rediff.com, has struck back with vengeance, saying a "hot head guy" might actually whack the Australian cricketers if they dared replicate their on-field behaviour in a bar.

The rediff report mentioned that the former India captain justified describing the Australian team's behaviour as "awful" and said it would be difficult for players, who use such language, to get away from a bar without being physically hurt.

"Some day, some other hot head guy might actually get down and you know whack somebody who abuses him," Gavaskar was quoted as saying.

Gavaskar cited the example of former Aussie cricketer David Hookes, who had been fatally beaten up outside a bar.

Gavaskar said the behaviour of current Australian players could land them in trouble.

"There's the example of the late David Hookes. Would the Australians, who use that kind of language on the field, and not all of them do, in a bar and would they get away with it?

"Would they have a fist coming at their face or not?" Gavaskar said on sports channel ESPN's breakfast show, Taking Guard.

The Mumbai legend while defending his decision to walk out of the Melbourne Cricket Ground while protesting a leg before wicket decision in 1981, said, "the reason the walk off took place was simply because I was abused by the Australians."

Gavaskar said it is the on-field behaviour of a side which matters the most in cricket.

"Let me also come back to what he (Ponting) said about, the way I played my cricket and I do not know what he is looking at.

"When he talks about the Indian team not having won matches, we are not talking about winning matches here, we are talking about behaviour on the field," he said.

In an unusually personal attack on Monday, Ponting had questioned the sportsmanship of Gavaskar and ridiculed the Indian team's performance in recent years.

Provoked by Gavaskar's comment that Australia are an "unpopular team" because of their on-field behaviour, Ponting had said: "we all know the way he played his cricket, don't we? If he is talking about us, what about the way India have played their cricket over the last few years?"

Gavaskar drew a comparison between the Australians and the West Indies side of the 70's and 80's, saying the Caribbeans were popular when they were at the peak.

"The West Indians were popular winners, there was an affection about the West Indians players in spite of the fact that they were beating you in 3 days."

"They did not abuse the opponents. They did not have anything to say to the opponents.

"When they were dominating world cricket the West Indians did not resort to personal abuse on the field, they just played the game hard, they were very tough competitors but there was nothing untoward in their behavior towards their opponents.

"West Indian players always had a smile on their face when they came in at the end of day's play to talk with you and to commiserate when you lost, you could see that there was no arrogance there," he said.

Gavaskar said the Caribbean cricketers were adored by fans all over the world because of their down-to-earth nature.

"Cricket lovers all over the world wanted the West Indies teams (of the last decade) to get back on their feet and start winning again," he said.

Somedays ago, we were talking about the India's chances to win this world cup but in their first match, they have failed to make a good score against Bangladesh.
Cricinfo.com writes that It's not going well for the game's Asian superpowers today. At Port-of-Spain, India's wheels are also coming off as they have slipped from 157 for 5 to 159 for 9 against the mighty Banglas ... Bangladesh have dedicated this match to the memory of 22-year-old Manjural Islam, their former international who was killed in a road accident yesterday.
Till now, India's Innings have come to an end with 191 Run all out in 49.3 Overs. I doubt if India can defend its match against Bangladesh. Again, Pakistan is also struggling and is even worse situation than India already losing one match against West Indies.

If Bangladesh wins today, then, I think India is not going to qualify even in the Super Eight.
What a dismal performance by India in terms of batting. A complete batting failure and collapse in the end.
A disappointing match to most of the viewers including me.
Let's see their bowling.
