Clarke is 33. He has scored 75 in the World Cup final and has lead their team to world cup victory. He has retired.
Dhoni is 33. He leads a team full of losers. He could not beat Australia in 5 months. And he still wants to continue till the next World Cup.
This is why India are a pathetic side even after the World Cup sponsors tried their best to make the reach the final.
Are we as a nation, such terrible losers?
And we as a nation will now follow the IPL. Shame on us.
May be India reached to semi by beating some less powerful teams. but don't forget one of those team was South Africa. And its a team game, you can't just blame one person like this. They all tried their best but what to do..we loose. and one more thing...as wining is a part of game so do losing is. If you lose one game you will not become a loser. I can understand your feeling...don't worry agle bar pakka jitega...
Not only did the Aussies win, they also conclusively defeated India and NZ in the semis/finals - no other team could beat either of those teams. I think it's safe to say Aussies were way ahead of everyone else in this tournament.
Yes i agree, i too don't like to blame anyone, we can only expect what is going to happen.But No one can judge the future. Any way In future team should find what wrong we have done in semi and have to correct it.
Based on this performance, I don't even think India deserved to reach the quarter finals.
I was talking about this from the start. Particularly bowling. We don't have any good bowlers in our team. But people won't agree with this. Harbhajan was the last good bowler in our team IMO. In league match, Zimbabwe gave us an alarm by scoring a good score but our bowlers didn't fix their mistakes after that match. In Quarter final we got Bangladesh instead of England. So basically our guys got only Easy levels before the yesterday's very hard level.
Forgot to tell you. Actually I thought Aus would score around 380+ minimum. Yep, it was based on their performance from the start. Something miracle(or whatever) happened so the score was down to 320+.
This match reminded me of 2003 WC Final. 359 was target & we scored only 234. Yesterday we scored 233.
As I said in past, our current team is not good on chasing(s). Ofcourse we did chase many 300+s in past.
Apart from bowling, our middle order batting really sucked. Yesterday Kohli & Raina killed the match.
