Warning Has Been Sounded

..by Bangladesh that they ain't gonna be walkovers. They put up a fight against Australia and gave Sri Lanka more than just a scare. Indian team will do well to pay heed.

I am not too bothered about the loss to NZ. What does bother me is the fitness of certain team members and match weariness. On the other hand, Ishant's bowling was a relief. RP Singh gives me a lot of confidence because of the awesome IPL he had and Ojha looked good in parts too. If only our openers strike gold soon...sigh...

Anyways...tommorow's match is important for reasons more than it being a warm up game. No two teams playing can capture the magic of an India-Pak match for me :). Hope I am able to catch some live non-Cricinfo action.

Leela,

I'm a little nervous too...one misstep can cost heavy in a T20..and we have been at the wrong end of the stick in a WC before...

But well...hope to get a good game in today and then demolish the Deshis later :)

Yes Ma'am...B'deshis are getting stronger! Scoring 180 something against a full strength Aussie team in 20 overs is no mean task! WC 2007 still gives me nightmares..

India Vs Pak in England.. wow.. :-) I am looking forward to the action on cricinfo...

Megha said...

Tell me about it! I had a 'Deshi housemate those days and she did live in fear of me for a few days after that ;-)

Anusha said...

lol!!

i had bought a new TV just to be able to watch the WC..my friends were worried I might break it in frustration...even after almost 1 year...i was about to break it when Sreesanth took that catch and saved the TV my wrath!!

Anusha said...

Well these so called minnows have an edge in the T20 format...they have batsmen who can hit the ball hard...In T20 they can do just that and don't worry about building a partnership and innings..look at what Netherlands did today!

Wow..this T20 WC is going to be fun..bigtime.. :-)
