Yuvaraj really showed awesome performance in bowling..while most of the mainline bowlers bajji, chawla are in disappointing form. India cannot solely depend on batting performance, If India needs to win world cup someone should attack in dreadful bowling form...it could be even parttime/ all-rounders like Afridi doing for Pak..We should give credits to Yusuf coming down the order and showing some guts against well settled Iri bowlers..i would say, india is lucky of getting thru this match without any blushes!!

This was supposed to be match between Ireland and BATTING COLOSSUS of India !!!

See the Indian batting WORM trailing Ireland's.

Dhoni and Yuvraj crawling towards 208.

This team does not look like World cup winners. Luckily no other team also looks the part. Except may be Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

It is wrong to criticize Bhajji at this stage. As far as this WC is concerned he is part of playing 11. Today also there is no need to get disappointed by his performamnce as he has bowled pretty tightly without giving too many runs. In ODI economy is as important as taking wickets. The one man disappointed all is Chawla. If Dhoni had given few more overs to Munaf stopping Chawla at say 4 to 5 overs, definetely Ireland's score would have been below 200. After being hit for 25 runs in initial 4 overs why he was given the ball I cannot understand.

hope sehwag stays on for first 15 overs and match will be completed in 30 overs straight

"Harbhajan was mediocre, and Yusuf was tidy." Considering Harbhajan bowled 9 overs at 3.22 economy and Yusuf bowled 7 overs at 4.57 economy the judgement should be reversed. "Harbhajan was tidy and Yusuf was mediocre". Isn't that right?
