I agree. Every other team must be laughing at the 'famed' Indian batting now.

SA has won, though. And deservedly too. I was literally biting my nails during Zaheer's over (in fact, I bit the nail on my thumb so deep that it bled a little and now it hurts like hell). Too bad Nehra couldn't get his length right. He gave too much room for Peterson. The missed run-out chance was pretty sloppy fielding too.

TBH, India needed a smack on its head. I hope they stop thinking of themselves as favourites now and really re-think the way they bat during the batting powerplay. Take a f*cking cue from South Africa who made optimum use of the powerplay.

At Last i want to request if in final Pakistan defeat India then please don't be anger on India's Muslims xD As some extremists do usually. Don't burn their houses please lol i hope Shiv-Sena will not interfere in world cup.

And I'd like to request pakistan to not try and kill the whole of Bharat's squad with government trained terrorists (source) like they tried to with Sri Lanka's squad (source).

Oh and I also hope pakistan doesn't try match fixing again and become the laughing stock of the world, yet again. How can I forget shoaib akthar and his attempt at cheating by using steroids?

Bharat is a democratic nation unlike pakistan. It is unlawful to set the houses of muslims on fire, unlike in pakistan where no action is taken when Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains and any and all non-muslims are brutally attacked, raped and killed even.

On-topic though, I was sure that Bharat was going to win the match today. Still, it was an awesome match regardless.

Tbh, today's match and Bharat's match against England were the most entertaining matches in the world cup.

Only three scores posted below 100 so far in the tournament. One of those was from the Associate member Kenya against New Zealand, the other two were from Bangladesh against West Indies and South Africa respectively. Disgraceful performance from the Tigers, with their fans having every right to be mad at their lack of, well, everything.

It's been a great a tournament for the smaller teams so far; Ireland, Holland and Zimbabwe have all showed what they are capable of in my opinion. The average sides (Bangladesh, England, Windies, etc) have been well average or poor, nothing special. While the top sides have been as unpredictable as every one else, making the tournament just that little bit more interesting.

Wow, didn't expect Bangla to fold so easily. England must have been relieved. India still have to win tomorrow against WI to get the momentum back before going into the quarters.

Pakistan have two of the best One Day bowlers (Spin; Afridi, Seam; Gul) in the world in their side, but the reason why they constantly underperform (aside from today) is down to their batting line-up. They have no depth, no grinders, nobody with a true sense of batting beauty who will consistently rack up 40-80 runs per match without hassle. If they manage to establish a capable batting line-up while keeping Afridi and Gul fresh, they will be a One Day force to be reckoned with.

At least, Australia's winning run in the WC is over. Seriously, for once, I would like to see somebody other than Australia win the World Cup. Can't really predict anything at this point, though.

What the f*ck has that got to do with cricket? He will support whichever team he wants to. Seriously, keep that bullsh*t out of this topic and post only if you wish to discuss cricket and the World Cup.

To be honest, Pakistan might have managed to upset Australia but it was no surprise. Australia weren't looking invincible like they used to before. I don't back Pakistan to go all the way, though. They just don't have the batting strength to back up their bowlers.

Are the press also picking upon Ponting's lack of sportmanship, or just the defeat? Now I can except a cricketer waiting at the crease on a 50/50 decision (Did I/He? Didn't I/He?) i.e. Jayawardene vs McCullum, but that nick was HUGE. Really doesn't do himself any favours Ponting, does he...

The whole walking thing is a crock of sh*t. Just because Gilchrist popularised it and his own popularity vicariously made walking a noble prospect.

There's enough mechanisms in place to undermine umpires in this game, promoting an action such as walking as being gentlemanly or whathaveyou when it's really just telling the umpires to eat sh*t doesn't sit well with me. I forget the bowler, but the time when Gilchrist walked when the ball hit a crack against Sri Lanka in an ODI really shows how the batsman can get it wrong.

Ponting may have smashed that, but imo, you go when the man in white tells you to go.

But yeah, Ponting hasn't been popular with the media for a long time. He's gone over 12 months without a century, is widely blamed for the nonselection of Hauritz and the promotion of Doherty in the Ashes, the continued selection of White in this World Cup, and don't forget his over-rate debacle in India the other year - continuing with part-timers instead of going for the jugular so he wouldn't get reprimanded for slow over-rates.

Seeing clips of the Adelaide test in the 06-07 Ashes, Ponting walked out for that game with his average a touch over 60. How far he's fallen since then is saddening.

For once, our[India's] fielding turned out to be quite good....Zaheer bowled quite well, ashwin did good fielding, and all-in-all, it was a good match....for the first semi-final, we'll get to witness the 'deadliest' combo of teams, India& Pakistan......Let's see how it turns out to be..
For a change, Australia isn't getting to win this worldcup, though.. turn.gif

So South Africa have fallen at the Knock-Out hurdle yet again, despite them being in the driving seat for over two-thirds of the match! Smart bowling from the Zealanders mean that a Semi-Final with either Sri Lanka or England awaits them! Also as M.A.K has noted, what a tasty Semi-Final India vs Pakistan is!

It's Good that India Won so now Semi final will be between India and Pakistan. India Got Good batsman and Pakistan Got Awesome bowlers so it's hard to predict that who'd win. BTW Whoever Win This match gonna be Interesting.

Congratulation to New Zealand they did a great Work today. Though they didn't gave the big target but they defended that awesomely.

That 'chokers' tag is going to stick with them for a while longer now.

In all honesty though, South Africa looked the most complete side on paper. Good batsmen, good bowlers and fielding has never been a worry. I had my money on them making it to the finals... and then choking. tounge.gif

Can't wait for the Indo-Pak clash. Good that I don't have work on Wednesday!

South Africa are the new West Indies. Fantastic at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I'm hoping for another thriller against Sri Lanka tomorrow for England; although I do feel that we need to bat first to stand any chance of winning, what with their fantastic bowling attack just coming into form.

For all I know, England have a good chance of upsetting Sri Lanka. Their bowling is not as good as Lanka's though, so batting first and raking up a good score should give a nice cushion for their bowlers. Lanka's batting is pretty good, too. Anything less than 250 would be a losing score.

You were the one who went offtopic in the first place with your conspiracy theories which make Shiv Sena, which is one of Bharat's political parties which actually cares about Sanatana Dharma, Hindus and protecting Bharat, look bad.

I suggest you do more research on the war with the LTTE. pakistan was certainly not the only country which helped us, and to be honest, we shouldn't have asked a nation as horrible as yours for any help, but our extremely incompetent Fuhrer went ahead anyway.

Bharat helped Sri Lanka to fight the war against the LTTE. Please stop with the conspiracy theories and baseless claims.

As for the match between Bharat and pakistan, all I have to say is... LET'S GO BHARAT!

To be perfectly honest, with the way Bharat has been playing, I have no doubt that they'll beat pakistan smile.gif.

Even if we had been playing badly, it won't be surprising if we beat them. That's just how it has been the last 4 times we met in a World Cup. It's just something about playing Pakistan that brings out the best in the Indians. Pakistan is currently hoping against hope that they can beat India, but I don't see it happening.
