The captain was the one who point out the game against the Proteas that they have to bat well in the powerplayes and put about 300 on the board, but again the Indians fails to do it against weak opporsition the West indians, I believe he has to set the example for the team. see Video and enjoy

Move Gambhir down the order - to #6 - will solve India's batting problems since Virat and Yuvi can bat at their fav positions, and Gambhir ( vice-captain) should shepherd the tail and solve collapse problem. Also important to keep Yusuf to provide the explosive finish.

Ashwin was good in today's match. He should get more opportunities :)

Indians are collapsing in their final batting stages because SA and West Indies bowlers were able to bowl more yorkers than Indian bowlers; Steyn and Rampal were able to bowl more yorkers than (or say very liitle) Indians and they did not give enough room for the batsmen to play the strokes freely Players like Yusuf Pathan are perishing when there is no room for driving was given . Harbhajan singh wasalso tied down by these yorkers and not able to move the bat freely.
