Again Pak score 340+.against the Poms. Poms again on to the chase!

Should we see 340+ Saga 4.0?


#3

After a terrible display against West Indies and having lost their last 11 ODIs, Pakistan’s performance today should boost the confidence of the team. Looks like they are back in the race.


#4

When India started very slowly, I thought India is going to fall 30-40 short. In middle overs too, we didn’t see any meaningful acceleration and I thought India will reach hardly 330-335. Not enough on this pith against this Aus team. India did a bit well in last few overs and did 350+.

I still believed this Aus line up had a very decent chance on flat track. But, Aus repeated same mistake India did with very slow start and piled up pressure on themselves. They were doing decently till 40 overs, but in the end the pressure of leaving too much for too late proved too much too handle.

This World isn’t actually giving us that feeling of World Cup. 3 matches abandoned due to rain and until now there were a very few nail biting finishes. I hope today’s match between Pakistan & Australia is a thriller.

India in World Cups.

1983
Won first two matches.
3rd match washed out due to rain.

2011
Won first two matches.
3rd match washed out due to rain.

2019
Won first two matches.
3rd match washed out due to rain.

Any guesses for the champions?!?!


#8

I hope the Indian team is not taking these coincidences too seriously and relying more on their preparations. :grimacing:
Next match an important one #INDvsPAK . Hopefully the rain God shows some mercy on World Cup & gives a chance to the teams to rightfully earn points.

Also, It remains to be seen whether India will play or not?!

Bugger got out while I was typing this! :hot_face:

Rohit Sharma’s Last 5 ODI Innings, 95, 56, 122*, 57, 140

If Today, Rohit Scored 50+, He Will Be 1st Indian To Smash 6 Consecutive 50+ Scores In ODI Cricket.
