India-RSA Game 2 Thread 3 -- India innings

Here you go again, fresh thread


  • prem,

    looks like you are not getting blocked today- achinb might have finally accepted fate

    Can you stay involved in discussions or if not that I vote for comments every 5 overs + fall of wicket or a major highlight.

    Anyone wants to second that- please join in

  • just makes it more meaningful

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:08  

  • it is fun watching the game on willow very good reception first time for me.........

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:08  

  • tombaan,
    is this ur first willow tv experience?

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 08:10  

  • Willow is way better than Sporting stream or SG...u get what u pay for

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 08:10  

  • Game abt to start.

    By Blogger Glorious Uncertainty(GU), at 08:10  

  • tombaan, r u the moderator for indiancricket.net ???

    By Blogger gangulysucks, at 08:11  

  • Pls let me know once the game started. Bec i need to start the "Stupid" gorgeous SL commentators voices

    bec of SS

    By Blogger gangulysucks, at 08:11  

  • Bush is like SG

    Bush: U.S. to stay in Iraq fight until victory


    By Blogger gangulysucks, at 08:13  

  • VS dropped down the order

    By Blogger Chetan Reddy, at 08:14  

  • The Indian team selection came to me as a surprise. Despite losing in the first game, we went for the same team. This probably speaks of the confidence level India is playing at. Prem, what are your comments on India playing the same team?

  • GG opening

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:15  

  • GG opening with SRT

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:15  

  • Ontong Subbed for RSA

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:16  

  • some interesting stats on chasing 170 runs (and below) on my blog.



    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:17  

  • is justin ontong a spinner?

    By Blogger Chetan Reddy, at 08:17  

  • They are obviously "hiding" Sehwag :-)

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:17  

  • Chop stick doesn't really work(be it whatever strategy or experimentation) as it adds to the players pressure.So this is the way to teou ll them, guys you can DO IT AGAIN.
    If I were the captain, I would have given the last over to Agarkar, because, he deserved few wickets and thats the way to give respect for his excellent bowling w/ no wickets.

    By Blogger Sree, at 08:17  

  • Ontong bowls offspin... crap stuff IMHO :-)

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:18  

  • maiden over

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:19  

  • Hi Prem, plz. comment here too.... Without sportingstreams, i rely on you to walk me through this match..:)

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:19  

  • scary over

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:20  

  • yup...I think the Indians may be looking at riding out the first 10 overs or so..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 08:20  

  • Prem, the best chance of nailing down the issue of blocking is during next game..esp. in the second innings, when google guys would be working.. if achin or anyone blocks, they would be caught promptly...

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:21  

  • will be tough going...

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 08:21  

  • why in world the SSed RPS .. Why not MKarthik

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 08:21  

  • India,IMHO, should do the assassination act.. not nudge slowly to victory.. but truly demolish the SA bowlers and put them into true perspective

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:23  

  • I hope we dont go overtly defensive ....

    By Blogger indCric, at 08:23  

  • man this is scary

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:23  

  • Pankaj, MK is supposedly a better batsman than RPS..

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:23  

  • anyone can tell me the typical speeds at which Pollock and Ntini are bowling?

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:24  

  • Raju i thought the other way ...

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 08:25  

  • raju, still to ee the speed gun

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 08:25  

  • around 138 i would say

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 08:26  

  • wow!..testing times for India..good practice..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 08:26  

  • Unlike the Australians' glorious run of 21 wins, the SA had won only 1 in the previuos 13 games.. they lost to SL,NZ and even WI in that period... with pretty much the same set of bowlers. So I dont see any reason why they cant be thrashed now..

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:26  

  • Gambhir came down the track??

    By Blogger Braveheart, at 08:27  

  • 129 actually :) was the last one

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 08:27  

  • will leave them stronger if they can weather this..

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 08:27  

  • runs........................:-)

    By Blogger ilovecricket, at 08:28  

  • jeez

    3 maidens in a row!!!!

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:28  

  • 3 friggin maidens in a row.

    By Blogger losing now, at 08:28  

  • Gambhir came down the track??

    By Blogger Braveheart, at 08:28  

  • thanks pankaj...

    But MK did well with bat during the brief county season..and also against the Rest of India..

    Two many maiden overs not good for India.. I can understand the caution but this is a bit too much...

    By Blogger Braveheart, at 08:31  

  • 2.1 Pollock to Gambhir, no run, comes down the track and flashes hard,
    ball rolls away off the other half of the bat, point fielder moves
    across and cuts off the single

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:32  

  • Prem, plz plz post your comments here....

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:32  

  • If GG succeeds today, would that shut down the doors to you-know-who trying to make a comeback?

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:33  

  • ganguly
    yes i am

    yes i agree....though i have never tried other sites

    maan there was a nick and catch dropped for sachin polock the bowler

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:34  

  • it was pretty short of the slips ahard chance

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:35  

  • guys watching LIVE, plz. update anything interesting happening out there..

    Edge dropped? Geez... is today our day?

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:36  

  • is there live audio/video streaming available anywhere??

    By Blogger sj, at 08:37  

  • Raju, sachin edged, but it dropped well short of the slip - the ball landed betweel the keeper & first slip.

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:37  

  • sj willow has it try www.willow.tv

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:38  

  • http://www.cricketworld.com/radio/
    this is free audio the commenatary sucks

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:39  

  • Sportingstreams sucks.. guys, can you throw some light on the price to subscribe SGstreams and willow tv?

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:39  

  • willow is 19.95

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:40  

  • tombaan: $20 is a little high I guess. Is there audio commentary available anywhere?

    By Blogger sj, at 08:41  

  • %19.95 per match in Willow tv.

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:41  

  • Can someone watching match live, pls post atleast a single line comm here, cricinfo is bit slow and refresh doesn't work either,sometimes, appreciate it.Thanks

    By Blogger Sree, at 08:42  

  • 9-0 in 7 Overs

    Pollock is keeping it simple - stump to stump with the odd ball dipping low

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:43  

  • 13 runs another four by gambir

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:43  

  • http://www.cricketworld.com/radio/

    Try the live audio here. Not too bad considering its free. You just have to put up with some prentious Sri Lankan commentators and a funny accent

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 08:44  

  • SS is showing Highlights for 2nd ODi at 5:30 PM EST today

    By Blogger gangulysucks, at 08:44  

  • are they lankans reverse sweep?
    i ddnot know that....they sounded biased to me

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:45  

  • the safricans seem to be getting to gambhir...

    By Blogger JK, at 08:45  

  • Willow was $50 for the entire series (if u bought a game earlier) ... not bad ... the reception is as good as any TV

    I have it hooked to my TV and its awesome. Better than Dish in my opinion. Hate Siva's commentary though.

    Can stand Hayssman Jackman and Shastri .. not Siva

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:46  

  • maan gambir has some balls coming forward to hit bowler off....it is a slow game so far though very interesting

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:46  

  • what a catch. SRT gone...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:46  

  • Gambir came down the track and gave a mighty swing - the ball rolled down the pitch :-))

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:46  

  • uh oh. gambhir down the track again and inside edging onto pads...tendu needs to calm the boy's nerves

    By Blogger JK, at 08:46  

  • sachin is out

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:46  

  • There is free audio on chennaionline but the commentators speak as is they are half asleep and the madrasi accent is worse than the Sri Lankans

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 08:47  

  • SRT...great catch

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:47  

  • Crap

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:47  

  • polock strikes good catch by kemp

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:47  

  • game on. SRT gone

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 08:47  

  • what is SS?reg the highlights at 5:30 EST?

    By Blogger Sree, at 08:47  

  • jk, Tendu need to calm his own nerves in the dressing room. That was a stupid shot on a slow wicket...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:47  

  • SRTT OUT..13/1 in 9 overs

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:47  

  • sachin out - 13-1 (8.1).

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:47  

  • dravid new man in

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:47  

  • IP next bat

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:48  

  • nice move...better than Kaif

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:48  

  • oops it is pathan

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:48  

  • I thought Tendulkar hit better than that .. tame dismissal

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:48  

  • 2 left handed batsman against pollock- that's wht we need

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:48  

  • sree,

    SS - Sporting Streams

    By Blogger gangulysucks, at 08:48  

  • I have yet to see sachin start slowly and then go on to score big. He should just continue to play his natural game...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:49  

  • Best 3 batsmen in current team: SRT, RD, IP

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:49  

  • tried to loft it over mid-on but the fielder was on the edge and with the perfectly timed jump got the ball over his head

    IP in

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:49  

  • DROP TENDULKAR.. He is scoring single figures in 3 out of 4 games

    By Blogger Ridham, at 08:49  

  • bad bad shot

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:49  

  • wow, sweet timing that by pathan...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:49  

  • pathan gets a four very good drive

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:50  

  • sg is decent but a tad expensive compared to ss

    By Blogger natty, at 08:50  

  • well placed shot by IP

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:50  

  • 4 by pathan 17/1

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 08:50  

  • 6th consecutive failure for SRT

    By Blogger losing now, at 08:50  

  • 4 off pollock by IP - good timing.

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:50  

  • Wow .. that was a batsmans shot from pathan

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:51  

  • Whats th epoint in sending pathan against accuracy of pollock and ntini? h eis not going to work, atleast has less chances. RD should have been in

    By Blogger J, at 08:51  

  • That 4 (on a slow wicket) just shows what a good timer of the ball Pathan is...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:51  

  • digs it out

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:51  

  • btb, that guy is a batsman :-)

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:51  

  • its a good move to get pathan in...give him batting practice against tough bowling...

    By Blogger JK, at 08:51  

  • IP will score runs...look at his confidence while facing delivery

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:51  

  • IP is middling the ball with good timing - he does not have to do anything flashy. The ball is coming off his bat quite fast, compared to SRT & GG

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:51  

  • Yeah ,,, despite the good shot ... it should have Dravid .. the total is too small and needs steady batting

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:52  

  • interesting game so far...polock bowled very well

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:52  

  • 17-1 (9 overs)

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:53  

  • nel in...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:53  

  • sRT's shot was irresponsible

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:53  

  • new bowler andre nel...gambir is being sucidal

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:53  

  • This is good tactic. keep VS/Rd for spinners later

    By Blogger losing now, at 08:53  

  • i think this is an opportunity to test out agarkar too...good to test out all rounders when the total is small...

    By Blogger JK, at 08:53  

  • Sachin now looks a shadow of his former self. Its sad but seems to be true that his great days are probably behind him. The question now is whether he can keep going until the WC?

    By Blogger inside_story, at 08:53  

  • Saurabh: No one calls him a batsman .. including himself... still call him a pinch hitter

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:54  

  • How does SGstreams charge - per match or per month? what are the rates?

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:54  

  • btb, its a good time to put IP under good bowling attack. Its a low scoring game... even if he fails, RD can come and steady the boat. IP will gain experience from this.

    Nel bounces Gambir. Top edge goes to 4. Net got quite a bit to say to GG

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:55  

  • maan this bastards they are so abusive...nel talking to gambir hope the ref looks at that

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:55  

  • nel sledging gg

    By Blogger suraj, at 08:55  

  • 4 for GG over the top...

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:55  

  • nel has started his mouth muscle exercises...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:55  

  • gambhir needs to calm down a bit...

    By Blogger JK, at 08:55  

  • gambir in flow one more four

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:55  

  • 2 4's in this over of nel from gambhir... 25 for 1. gambhir on 19. 10 overs...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:55  

  • 4 more to GG..nice shot.

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:56  

  • 4 more for GG of Nel


    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:56  

  • 9.1 Ntini to Gambhir, no run

    End of a successful over, South African bowlers have come out
    blazing defending this small target - India under pressure here.
    Nel comes into the attack now

    Cricinfo continues to goof up

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:56  

  • Good reply, GG. Keep it up

    By Blogger inside_story, at 08:56  

  • gambhir talking back at nel...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:56  

  • nel is complaining to the umpire...ha ha ha.

    By Blogger JK, at 08:56  

  • Umpires are getting in it now to cool down Nel and GG

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:56  

  • the umpires stepped in talking to gambir hope they talk to nel too

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:56  

  • looks like GG is giving it back. Hope he doesn't do an aamir sohail

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 08:56  

  • I ssee the thinking behind Pathan ... but is dangerous imo

    Gambhir needs to calm down ... he is falling into the trap

    By Blogger BTB, at 08:57  

  • or a Javed Mianded, for that matter..

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:57  

  • nel is absusive. Wonder why he hasn't been banned yet...

    By Blogger Saurabh Wahi, at 08:57  

  • that over was good for india. ppl throwing things @ Nel

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:57  

  • nel guy is taking chanced at crowd....already a missile thrown at him....

    By Blogger Rajg, at 08:57  

  • remember the amir sohail Vs prasad happened at bangalore too!!

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 08:58  

  • wow risky run it was almost a run out

    By Blogger tombaan, at 08:58  

  • GG can and should mouth foul words from his brain not from the heart.. Nel deserves that

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:58  

  • that was a goner

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 08:58  

  • IP was lucky there to still be in there

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:58  

  • Guys using sgstreams, plz. give me the rates for that..

    By Blogger Raju, at 08:59  

  • calm down ppl


    By Blogger suraj, at 08:59  

  • Ontang had a go @ the stumps. But missed it

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 08:59  

  • fielding is brilliant. Arun lal says 'ordinarily that should have been 4" wonder what he means

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 08:59  

  • maan this guys can field guys it is a good game ntine stops a four polock as usual very good

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:00  

  • wowo fielding by SA...

    IP was lucky...fielder missed a run out chance.

    By Blogger Rajg, at 09:00  

  • What a fight back by SA!!! Fantastic! Now I understand why they haven't lost in awhile

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:00  

  • $10 for sg

    By Blogger suraj, at 09:00  

  • thanks suraj, 10$ per month or match?

    By Blogger Raju, at 09:00  

  • four by gambir

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:01  

  • we can certainly learn a thing or two from the south african pace attack...this is experience at its best...

    By Blogger JK, at 09:01  

  • GG clubs Pollock for 4

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 09:01  

  • score is 30 for one

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:01  

  • 4 for GG..30/1 11 overs

    By Blogger Rajg, at 09:01

    By Blogger suraj, at 09:01

    By Blogger Pankaj Tripathi, at 09:02  

  • JK, I think the RSA bowlers can learn a thing or two from pathan-agarkar too...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 09:02  

  • nel trying hard to keep that smile on... :)

    By Blogger JK, at 09:02  

  • raj lol yeah 10 per year man

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:02  

  • I don't think it is necessary for Nel to enquire after Gambhir's health after every ball, for example! :-)

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 09:03  

  • Im seeing Nel for the first time. Whats with his run up?

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 09:03  

  • If SG is $10 per match .. why do people go there instead of WIllow (same price)

    By Blogger BTB, at 09:03  

  • After Hyderabad, no wonder GC said he had no doubt we will win some games against SA. I was surprised at his guarded comment, as you expected him to say something more positive like we can still win the series. I am thinking a 3-2 verdic in favor of SA may be what GC is hoping at best.

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:04  

  • is ruchir, nel deal on.

    By Blogger ramshorns, at 09:04  

  • Tombaan, :-) ss charges a tad above 6 $ per month.. someone said sg is a bit more expensive than ss.. thats why i asked..

    By Blogger Raju, at 09:04  

  • gambir in flow one more four

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:04  

  • good shot

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 09:04  

  • wow. this nel-gg thing is going to be fun as long as gg doesn't do anything stupid...now nel is mocking gg

    By Blogger JK, at 09:04  

  • over cover 4 more for GG off Nel

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 09:04  

  • The chennai online commentary is dull and inept. Try cricket world - the Lankans keep it more interesting.

    By Blogger mip_co, at 09:04  

  • 4 for GG..

    By Blogger Rajg, at 09:04  

  • willow is $20

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:05  

  • VS lost his opener slot to GG.

    By Blogger Rajg, at 09:05  

  • nel can mock GG as much as he wants really... all GG needs to do is point to the scoreboard :-)

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 09:05  

  • botha in

    By Blogger tombaan, at 09:06  

  • botha in...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 09:06  

  • Botha on

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 09:06  

  • whew! the spinners are in!

    By Blogger JK, at 09:06  

  • the SL commentarors speak as if they are Gods gift to mankind but then there is trevor chesterfield there too. at least they are full of life...chennai online is as if they are almost asleep

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 09:07  

  • Honestly. Guys on cricket world make Shiva and arun lal sound like benuad and chappel

    By Blogger lukkhamaster, at 09:07  

  • maiden...

    By Blogger Mohan Krishnamoorthy, at 09:08  

  • guys anyone mind sharing the trevor chesterfield commentary URL

    By Blogger indCric, at 09:08  

  • What's IP's role today? To be the sheet anchor and hold one end up while other bat around him?

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:10  

  • have they taken the second powerplay?

    By Blogger SantosLHalper, at 09:10  

  • http://www.cricketworld.com/radio/

    indcric...as above chesterfield is on right now

    By Blogger Reverse Sweep, at 09:11  

  • thanks

    By Blogger indCric, at 09:11  

  • Nel's got a cute smile:-)

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:11  

  • 2 runs in 22 balls by IMMORTAL SRT.
    That is why I say u have to be kind to the mortals as well..sometimes.

    By Blogger CrickTip, at 09:11  

  • IP's role - a batsman not a slogger. Defend the good ball, do not take any risk (as he did now) and score of the bad balls

    By Blogger Partha (பார்த்தா), at 09:12  

  • Partha - RD or any of the regulars should be given that role. Why IP?

    By Blogger inside_story, at 09:15
