Indian team is far better if we match up man to man but when it comes to playing on the field & showcasing the talent the main part is to do the basics right by playing as a unit which was seen to be lacking. Indian team was not seen as a unit while Pakistan which had so many newcomers doing well played as a unit.

They outplayed us in all the departments of the game & the credit should be given to the coach as well who has made them play like this. India had only a few individual performances to notice but no one played well consistently like Nasir Jamshed who for me was by far the find for Pakistan & the player of the tournament with back to back hundreds in style. Our team is in the transition phase so the youngsters should learn from such experience that when you are in to make the most of it & not leave the job for others when set!!

It was not India's day out there.. and the best team won. This teams need major overhauling and held personally responsible for the defeat! I wonder when and how the stalwarts will start performing and if the Captain says anything it is misconstrued, misquoted... All of them should be benched and new comers told to play..

It boils down to 'you win some, and you lose some'. How you play on that particular is all that matters. However, while we have a very strong batting line, we are weak in the department of bowling.

Pakistan has a better team.Their batters n bowlers performed much better than our boys who consider themselves above every thing because of IPL n endorsement money.For their better performance, IPL should be banned,BCCI should stop poking its nose in to the affairs of selection committee n players should be selected exclusively on the basis of their performance,not on the basis of their seniority or past performance.

Are you saying that India's team won the cricket match in the past because they were superior than other country's team?
Actually no. It is the game.
Sometimes, significant factors go in favor of one while sometimes to other team. Team coordination is one such factor.
that's all...

1. Pak bowlers' performance was sooo well tht Indian batsmen could not stand. Dhoni shd hv come at 4th place instead of 6th as he had to leave many many runs in absence of proper batter as partner .
2. Our batsmen were to concentrate on batting instead of Advt with Ms Tamanna by Virat Kohli.
3. Fletcher shd be sacked incl his bowling coach !!

It is a simple understanding that the team which plays better always win and as such we can say that at present pakistani players are better than ours
