England gave India a run for thier money but both Raina and Dhoni came good.

Blackwell is a very good one day prospect for England

I honestly expected a capitulation at 92-5, but surprisingly Dhoni and Pathan seemed to have batted sensibly and courageously.

Cheers - well done, boyS! :-)

OOps - meant Raina there! The young man seems to have a very sound head on his young shoulders.

Hoggard totally deserves a place in the team.
and yeah a great match.
I guess England are not so bad as some of their fans do think off.
In next few matches they can come up real strong

Good game to watch, well done india.
Only problems were ali-too expensive for england and I still have a problem with this wide if it goes down leg-side problem. Seems silly to be a wide if it comes of the batsmen's feet (which it did a couple of times). No quirk against the Indians, it's more of a quirk against the ICC.

I always believed that given this pitch...had england go in with Batty instead of Ali or Plunkett the result would have been a lot different.

For 92-5 Indians did well to win this one.All credit to Dhoni for his cool approach and especially the 18 year old Suresh Raina for finishing it off.

I have been following the cricket closely this season, but given the shocking collapse we witnessed at Mumbai (albeit in a Test match on a wearing pitch) and Dhoni's cavalier shot on that occasion, I did not hold my breath about common sense prevailing - clearly he has learnt from that experience and put his head down today - seems to have figured that this was not the wicket to go hammer and tongs at the bowling.

Raina, on the other hand is tipped for bigger things on the basis of this innings - very well, played - the youngster.

Ya India did well to recover. But I guess Kaif needs a kick in the back side. I cant recall the last time when he crossed 20...:/

I agree. And it was not the right time for him to come in. I wonder why Dravid didnt send Pathan os Dhoni in instead of Kaif. India was under pressure,field was up and they were struggling to get the bowlers away.It was powerplay on and few boundaries would have eased the pressure off a lot.Kaif is just a nudger and cannot hit over the top and he succumbed trying to get going.Pathan and Dhoni are clean hitters and probably would have been better at the time.

"Rest" Shah, and replace with Cook,
use Prior as wkt/bat and "rest" Jones,
replace Ali with Hoggard,
bring in another spinner, preferably Monty as he can turn the ball, but Udal has the edge in batting terms.

Agree - Kaif & Consistency - both very far from each other.... He has a talent, but unfortunately many times he lacked concentration and just threw his wicket....

However, drop Kaif & bring whom...? Ganguly? I cant see any other possibilities till Sachin the great is back....
