Ponting has never shown India his best? A certain 140 in the 2003 World Cup Final comes to mind!

I think munaf is completely off colour ,Sresanth needs to play in place of Munaf for rest of the world cup match.

Here the Total Story From Harsha....

Posted by rohitdogra on (March 25, 2011, 19:51 GMT)

Kudos to the Indian team. It was endearing to see a match winning performance from Yuvi once again. Raina rose to the occasion and proved how crucial he is in the death overs by bolstering the pathetic-looking middle order with the current form of Dhoni and the so-called "technically sound" Kohli who has failed the team yet again by throwing away his wicket. Scoring against the minnows is not a big deal that too batting first, the real batting talent lies in scoring against the strong teams chasing a total. Instead of abusing and shouting at the opponents for every catch, maybe kohli can learn a thing or two from Raina or Yuvi of how to "talk" with the bat which matters ultimately. For India to take home the cup, they need to include Pathan in place of Kohli since Pathan can hit and bowl better than Kohli. Gambhir and Kohli not only slow things but also don't see the team through thus creating immense pressure for the rest of the batsmen, so Kohli should make way for Pathan.

Dear Harsha

If you read this comment, kindly convey the message to Mr. Sidhhu that Harbhajan does need counselling about his bowling at the moment. Spinners from all over the world have come and taken heaps of wickets , even debutants , but the legal Heir of Muralidharan has failed his team, his country and most importantly himself. But neither he is realising it nor is supporters like Siddhu.

At present form and attitude he looks like a club level bowler

this is what harsha has to say abt India - Aus match last night.

Posted by Freeman58 on (March 25, 2011, 5:26 GMT)

Govethem Ghambir is a liability after 25 overs because of his style of play. It was a blessing in disguise when he was run out in the quarter finals against Australia. In the death overs Raina was good. Why not change him to play insted of Gambir?
