That was epic massacre and I would say it was really rare to found in world cup matches and would definitely hard even in future world cup matches. Teams have started playing very defensively. And Germany was the best team in entire arena. I found NED team second best(atleast for me)
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
Good day for both the teams. India did pretty well to be at 259/4. I beleive we did quite well even after all the guys (who are expected to make runs) failed, thanks to Vijay (before the match I was having the opinion that this guy should be replaced by Gambhir considering his poor form outside India ).
The pitch seems to be a kind of flat to a lot depends how Eng bats in first inning, that will decide whether we will have a result in this match.
I have noticed Vijay plays well only when Gambhir is in the Indian squad.
So selectors now know the secret of his success.
I would say even Binny was a lucky one to get a chance in this test match. He will need to prove himself in short time before being replaced either by Ashwin or Rohit Sharma.
I am tired of seeing Rohit in the squad!!Agreed he is one of the most talented guy!!But he plays 1 innings well and then 10-15 innings he doesn't play at all. He is not able to justify his talent!!!He has been given lot of chances but he is still to prove!!
