India just Lost the First match

In Cricket, Opinion, Sports, World cup on February 19, 2011 at 10:35 pm

Well well well… So India won its first match today Against Bangladesh. Scorecard is available on various websites. And cricket enthusiast would not have missed a single ball on TV. Btw I dropped my plan to buy a portable TV for world cup, probably that was insane. you might wonder, what was insane? either buying TV or not buying TV.

Anyway, Thanks to my Photon connection, I just was just not able to watch Live streaming courtesy http://www.espnstar.com, So yahoo cricket ball-by-ball commentary was my respite.

Coming to the point, India won its first match in 2011 edition of world cup against Bangladesh. A thumping total of 370 runs was just not possible without ‘the‘ Sehwaag’s onslaught and a confident 100 run from Virat Kohli. Anyway, it was against the bowlers of Bangladesh. But runs are runs, isn’t it? Sehwaag’s 175 is just right for the start India will wish to have him in other matches, where opponents are stronger and smarter. Batting department was overall good.

Lets come to bowling. I felt Bangladesh total of 283 was much more than what anybody would have expected from Indian Bowlers. Disregarding what the so-called Cricket experts say about home support and what and what not, I say, India Lost this match for lack of bowling expertise. Zahir khan scalped his first victim after some 20th over. Only Munaf could invade B’desh top order batsmen. Sreesanth was too expensive to be bowling in world cup and Yuvi just fails to impress with his above 6 run rate.

Any way batting is shining armor in Team India.

On a final note, while batting was shining, Bowling failed India.

Kohli celebrates his maiden Wold Cup Century

  1. It’s a winning start..lets rejoice the moment..

  2. very true

  3. I guess, Sufia would agree wid me

    • yup..indian bowlers in general..suck. they did end up taking more wickets than BD, but I agree with Rajiv, allowing a not-very-strong BD to get away with 283 says much about how sad Indian bowling is. BD’s scoring rate in the fitst 10-odd overs was MUCH higher than what indias was. Barring Munaf, not at all impressive. Harbhajan Singh (Narendra will kill me) for me has always been highly overrated. Think thats why Indian batsmen score all those runs? They know their bowling lineup sucks, and they need to score runs to cover up their deficiencies in the bowling dept?

      • WC is in the Sub-Continent. It’s a batsman’s game here. I won’t be surprised to see any lesser team stack up big runs against A-grade teams. Invariably all teams are going to suffer in the bowling department. By the way is there any team in the which has good bowling line up? Only SL comes to my mind.

        Bharat Jeetega! 🙂

        • It’s good to be optimistic Narendra😉 but this edition is wide open and no one is a clear favourite… So lets see who makes to final four. Then we shall bet, Hozzzattt😉

          • hehehehhehe…As Dhoni goes in Lay’s commercial – Indiyaa Indiyaa🙂

            • 🙂
              You know, I want to bit shit out of him, Fkin is there time to do commercials… fkin asshole.

              • rajiv…commercials kitne pehle shoot hue the😛

                narendra SL has a good bowling lineup, and id say so does pakistan. its not as fantastic as SL, but its relatively better than most. what we have in our favour is our bowlers r new, so the opposition hasnt time to figure them out as yet.

                lets see what happens tho. todays results were quite as expected.

                • mat puchh yaar….TV dekhne ki aadat hi chhut gayi hai last kab koi commercial maine TV pe dekha tha yaad hi nahi hai… ab to laptop hi sansaar (LIFE) hai🙂

  4. waise….bd tha to india bach gaya. chris gayle hathe charega to kia hoga tumhare bowlers ka? when is india vs WI btw?

  5. and rajiv….why didnt u buy the tv

  6. What a victory India had on their opening match and rajiv you crying for 283 of Bangladesh. Cheers Man, agree to Narendra when he said that almost all teams have their bowling department weak. The main thrust is batting for most of the teams.
    Cheers
    I am sorry Sufia but I have to We are gonna win this cup. No Chris gale, No Sohaib, No Sahid, No Lee and no damn bowler and batsmen can beat this team. seems I have gone too far, any way “ab jab bol diya hai to dekh lenge” – remember this from Sholey😉
