Even if Dhoni wanted to play 3 seamers, he still could have played Ashwin by dropping Harbhajan. Harbhajan is a very over-rated bowler these days, he needs to be dropped to make way for Ashwin.

I wonder where is Parveen Kumar??? He was selected for the 15 member world cup squad but then was replaced by Sreesanth due to an injured elbow. But he should be fit by now since it has been more than 3 months when he got injured before the start of the one-day series in South Africa. I think everyone has forgotten him, he has been the leading wicket taker for India in the he past couple of years.

Pak chased 4 out of 7 matches played. It won 3 out of 4 chasings but those are all below 200 runs. It lost a match chasing 302 runs. All over it made above 200 runs only two times yet now. It made above 200 runs two times in first innings that too with kenya and srilanka. So i have the hopes to win the game.

For all those doubting India's chances, one simple ques: Ne batsman odr dan Viru whom u felt was comfortable. Pak players r nervous, batting fragile, pitch is seaming,swinging n spinning n ind has got a gud bowling l9 up for this pitch Except the dew factor, india is in a better position. Hell wid the commentators!!

Opting for Nehra over Ashwin is bothering Dhoni.... he couldnt concentrate

There we go.... ideal way to pressurize urself by playing way too defensive and then giving in by loosing way too many wickets....
