Good morning, and for all those who thought India were out of the World Cup, it's not true. They still have today's match to play and they could yet steal that 5th place position, and all the prestige that comes with it. India have won the toss, and both countries have named an unchanged XI. excuse me, except Ganguly has come back in for Ramesh India will be batting first, as soon as this little bit of drizzle clears, the wheelie covers are on, but not the tarps covers are off, some unusual midlands has appeared - it's not raining covers are off, some unusual midlands has appeared - it's not raining match is about to start on time. Hair is one umpire, Shepherd is the other, leading his flock of players out
