Nehra should be kicked out. He is good for nothing. just think which area is he good in. He can't field, doesn't know even how to hold bat, and in bowling? everyone know how he bowls. he is the most useless player in cricket history. I think if you take any street player he would perform much better. Pathan is gud hitter but he is not in form and shud be given rest for next match and raina shud be given chance. If india doesn't has any player to replace nehra, its better to play with 10 players instead of 11.

Yes bating has to be blamed but captainship has to be blamed equally because

1.Why was batting power play not not taken when we were 130 for no loss in 15 overs. what do our captain captain think that all of them can whak steyn and morkel.it was sachin and sehwag at because the ball was new and feild was up.
2.why was yusuf pathan not sent 1 down when botha and peterson were bowling, you should exploit oppositions weak link or rather attack their premier bowlers at the end.
3. sachin took too long to reach his century which ultimately delay the batting power play after the 34th over when the ball was changed and completely changed the momemtum.

What ever happened is happened. At least the 49th over could have been given to Harbajansingh who scored already 3 wickets. Any batsman on the ground shall have a psycological fear becasue already they have seen 3 wicket loss and this fear will give a set back. while batting.

Yes. Dhoni's over confidence also matters . The bowling order is really matters.

Yes, it shows India's irresponsible batting play and also the inconsistancy in batting. MSD and his team should carry this learning to rest of the matches. One advice to cricket fans - Pls don't expect too much from this team, because as believed this is not the best Indian team ever...it is proved again.
