You never know with Aus though. Still a long way to go...Symonds, Clarke and Hussey is a very strong middle order.

Should be exciting.

And on a side-note I hope Shoaib and Asif clear up their problem.

Edit: As I posted that Jerome Taylor got a big one on Damien Martyn's helmet. Ouch.

So Mr. Taylor has officially arrived. That was some performance, and now one worries about Aus in this tournament, which doesnt count though.
the wickets are a bit dicy though.... we in India are plagued by problems of wickets being either too flat or to difficult to play on. If not that, then chances are the weather or the dew will be a factor. the toss then becomes the vital issue.
But so far India are looking good, and isnt it just like Pakistan to come up with a backs to the wall victory over a good side when everything seems stacked against them?

That was a decent start by Bell and Strauss but to have only two other batsmen get into double figures after that is unacceptable.

Harmison and co. are going to have to bowl the best performances of their lives in the Aussie innings and I highly doubt this will happen.

1) Yardy wasn't at four today but five is a no-go as well. He's a pretty good bowler (as his stats today will testify) and a decent batsman but why is he playing higher up than Collingwood? Defies belief.

2) If Chris Read is being selected ahead of Geraint Jones on the strength of his batting...

3) How come Steve Harmison looks world class with a red ball but utterly crap with a white one (the only person I've seen bowl a wider wide than the one he did against India last week was me).

4) Some of that Aussie fielding in the England innings was world-class.

Akhtar and Asif.

Maybe Shoaib can go make his movie now.

if Gayle won't be named man of the series than I would shake my head in disbelieve

I have no real prediction for this final
I would still consider Aus favourite by the smallest of margins

The Windies' run rate is pretty good, but they've been losing too many wickets. Looking at maybe a 200 total here at best.

14 off McGrath though, that's nuts.

looks like we'll win....i don'ge t akick out of the one day game so it's pretty meaningless to me....

But Bracken is on fire, Tait should get the 3rd pace bowling spot for the Ashes, but I do hope that Johnson and Clark miss out...
