India beats Ireland comfortably !

Postby ganesh177 » Thu Jun 11, 2009 2:07 am

So the last match in the group rounds, and India beat Ireland convincingly. 18 overs match and Ireland could make 112 runs. India chased down easily , thanks to the clinical performance of Rohit sharma and Gautam Gambhir. Zaheer khan was a star bowler last night, with 4 wickets, after his comeback. With his arrival bowling just got bit better.

With the departure of Viru, there would had been a serious depression in batting, but thanks to Rohit sharma, he is well filling up that gap, and has impressed everybody so far. He seems to have good chemistry with gambhir, and certainly will open well the innings in matches ahead. One down position again was dhoni promoting himself to #3, and could make only 13 runs, while he got out for trying to hit a six. Last match against bangladesh when he promoted himself to one down position, some people thought he did it for left-right combination, as he was to join Gautam gambhir, when rohit got out. But this time Gambhir got out, and still dhoni was one down to join Rohit :lol: . Commentators(Anil kumble, Harsha bhogle) were surprised to see him one down once again, and mentioned it few times. Even at the post match presentation, Naseer hussain could not resist asking about that move of his (with his tone Naseer was like, comon man, wat are you doing ? One down is not for you :shaking2: ). And dhoni answered, no he dont wish to be permanant for one down(ofcurs now u realised its not working), and he was just experimenting. So its okay ,india was already through super8, and could afford some experimenting due to week Group A. But next round we are in tough group, and cannot afford any more experiments. Because next match Chris gayle is just waiting to tear the indian team apart with his bat. So if you are done with experiments, lets have a specialist one down player Raina/Yuvi. And dhoni could be like 5/6 along with pathan bros. A finisher. Because his style has changed, he is no more a hitter, and have become a player who works bowl around for 1's and 2's and runs hard. So when Raina/Yuvi would be ahead of him, both can play their natural game and whack the ball hard, considering the fact that dhoni is still back their , so they can take risks, which is their natural game. But if dhoni comes one down and gets out, then the rest of natural strokes player are in pressure, under which they cannot be expected to perform with full efficiency.

Over all it was a good game for india, but bad game for cricket (I mean boring one sider).:bom:

By the way, where is Deepika ? Somebody said she would be around. That should be some fun if she arrives soon. :love:
