World cup cricket: India out of the world cup

Filed under: Cricket — Vikram @ 21:20

Good riddance to another rubbish from the Indian cricketers until the next world cup.

India are finally out of the world cup after loosing, again pathetically, against the mighty Lankans. Even though Indian bowlers tried to contain them by getting wickets constantly, the batting order were not that lucky. They were set a target of 255 by the Lankans.

Tendulkar, with all his experience, again out on a duck in possibly his last world world cup. Dhoni, what more can be said about him. He was out of the first ball he faced in the match. It was indeed a great ball from Muralitharan. Yuvraj Singh, run out. Sehwag tried his best, but not enough I reckon. Dravid, the captain, tried to glue himself at the crease, was unlucky. Wickets kept falling at the other end. I reckon he lost his calm at one point and started hitting some good strokes taking him to 60 before he was caught my Muralitharan off Jayasurya. After his dismissal, there was no going back. Our tail-enders cannot handle the Lankans by any means. I must commend Harbhajan for his unbeaten 17. Indians were finally bowled out for 185 and were sent packing back home by the mighty Lankans.

The Indians are now on their way back to India. Dravid, needs to answer many questions back home. His captaincy seems to have gone for a toss. He dosen’t have the wao factor that Ganguly had as a captain. Ganguly may not have scored heavily as a captain, but he had the capacity to turn the game around.

Anyways, good riddence to the rubbish cricket from the Indians, at least for this world cup. Who knows whats more to come. India can just hope a miracle to happen. I saw their faces after they lost the match. A sense of shock. They can now just hope against all odds that Bangladesh will loose to Bermuda.
