Chasing is good for WI. It will allow the few matchwinners they have on the batting side to go as per requirements than blasting off from the word go.

Being exactly where they wanted to be - physically and mentally - by not playing the IPL appears to be helping so far!

Edwards gets Clarke

And the Aussies are one psycho short.

Symo played a blinder in one of his first big WC match in 2003. Can his replacement - D Hussey - do the same?

Excellent fight back by the Aussies. If Gayle gets going, we have a good match

Looks like many do not care much about this WC as much as the IPL.

May be I will bump up a DC thread or two from the IPL to make up. :P

now we know why he doesnt want to bother playing tests etc..

his heart was in the IPL.. and the WI board played games with him. He was rightly pissed off about the whole thing.

Why the hell did WICB shoehorn a series during IPL without consulting the players

101-0, 8ov

If Aus lose by huge NRR ..they may not make it to S8.

RP in 20-20 is looking iffy both as a player and leader.. hope KKR is taking notes

Poor captaincy by RP. He should have not given the 3rd over for Lee. Gayle is good against pace. He should have slowed it up there..

Now he is bowling Watson - one of the best in IPL - this late

Frankly, I never thought I would say this.. but the Aussies could use Warne's captaincy and Gilly, Hayden & Symmo in their team.

I don't think Watson was supposed to bowl - he's recovering from an injury and the sense was that he's not going to bowl before the Ashes. But they had no choice.

I think RP should have opened with Bracken against Gayle - not Lee or Johnson. He may also have been murdered but atleast he would have had a better chance in my view.

This is the problem with those who captain in traditional forms of the game.. they dont spot the issues fast enough and make changes. I would not have continued with Lee/Johnson after their first overs.. and slowed the pace down immediately. These are the things good captains in IPL were doing right away...they developed a keen nose for events

Anyway, I think most captains would look silly when the likes of Gayle or Gilly or Sehwag get going. You can only do so much.

What a high ball - and a well judged catch - Gayle goes -truly a captain's knock.
