Indo-Pak final is what i want to see!!!IT WILL BE A NATIONAL HOLIDAY, I BET........and if India Wins there, i think we will get another day off for partying.Dreaming too big right now, na??But the way things are going, i really am getting excited on this this dream getting realistic.Pak meeting us in QF is quite unlikely......and if we set up QFs in a way so as to avoid them in SF, then it would be great.Coz i remember, SF 1 will be QF 1 Winner v QF 3 winnerAnd SF 2 will be QF 2 Winner v QF 4 Winner.....So, Ind & Pak shud not end up playing a combo of : QF1-QF3 or QF2-QF4......

India and Pak will be in the same half (assuming SA beat Bangla) which means they can't meet in the finals.

So, Pak is in QF 1 for sure.....For any chances of Ind v Pak final, we shud not play QF 3.....ie, A3 v B2......and if we win, we will end up playing that very match.So, i am in a dilemma - Want a victory on 1 side, but that victory will cancel out any chances of meeting Pak in the Finals!!"Dharma-sankat" for me!! (And those others who want to see Ind v Pak Final)

It will be India-Aus Q/F if India wins against WI or India-S.L Q/F if India loses to WI today.So, a good team (which deserved to be in Semis) will depart in Q/F itself !!I hope it's not India

India will surely not depart.....No matter whatever the other "Experts" say on Forums, on News channels, or in Print media, deep within i have the belief that our players will rise to the big occasion. They will perform well & beat any opposition. The Group Stage was taken lightly by them, coz everyone had assumed that Bangladesh, Netherlands & Ireland will exit surely.But that wont be the case here - its Shape up or Ship out.Just 3 steps away from glory - that applies to all 8 teams though!!

India shud play with just 3 bowlers... Zaheer plus 1 fast and 1 spinner (Bhajji is only option)And bring 8 batsmen.. current 7 + Raina..3 main bowlers to bowl 30 overs. then Yuvi, Pathan, Raina, Sehwag, Tendulkar can share 20 overs.say 6 overs betn Sehwag/Tendulkar and other 3 to bowl abt 5 each. if someone of these 5 has their day...he can bowl full 10 over quote as well. and in that case Sehwag/Tendulkar to bowl only if reqd.Our bowling is anyway weak.. so better strengthen batting further.

Amish, u r right!!On another day, i would have easily countered ur statement. But looking at the way the bowlers are performing, i would say strengthen thee batting, instead of adding bowlers. May be, i still will get greedy to play Ash in this game.....we can still try that once, coz its still not KO game.

They would have even considered it if Sehwag & Sachin were considered bowling-fit - which I think is not the case :confused: , Hence they have to stick to 4-bowler combo
