    Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli had done a fine job in building India's innings following the extremely early loss of Virender Sehwag. But it all went downhill for India once again, after Shane Bond claimed the prized wicket of Tendulkar on his way to a 4-wicket haul. It turned into quite a procession as they went on to lose their last 9 wickets for a mere 65 runs, even gifting 3 wickets to part-timer Nathan Astle. They could manage only 207 off 44.1 overs.

    The Indians put up an inspired fightback with the ball, bringing New Zealand down to their last man still needing another 3 for victory. However, the sheer pressure of the situation eventually got to them as a couple of costly errors from Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni allowed the New Zealanders to escape with a 1-wicket victory.

    [​IMG]

    New Zealand, with 3 wins out of 5 matches were through to the Super Sixes stage of the tournament at the expense of ODI heavyweights India, who for all the ODI caps between them (2693 to be exact) were expected to go a lot further than the group stages.

    Heath Streak and Ray Price struck twice each during the early part of Bangladesh's innings to reduce them to 62/5 by the 11th over. It took a 135-run partnership between Mushfiqur Rahim and Mominul Haque to get them past 200 which seemed quite unlikely at one point.

    Once again, Neil Johnson proved what a valuable player he was for Zimbabwe with a well struck 67 off 66 balls from the top of the order after having opened the bowling for his team with moderate success. Zimbabwe suffered a few hiccups following his dismissal, but their lower-order featuring Duncan Fletcher, Heath Streak and Graeme Cremer held firm to see the job through with 3 overs to spare. They bowled out of the tournament with a victory over Bangladesh, who failed to win anything other than the preliminary match against Canada which helped them qualify for the main draw.

    All of Pakistan's bowlers save for the legendary Wasim Akram were carted at above 6 an over on what appeared to be one of the flattest tracks on the competition. Runs flowed quite easily off the bats of Steven Smith, Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey who made the most of the conditions with half-centuries to their names. Australia finished with a massive 330/8 off their 50 overs.

    For a while, with Saeed Anwar and Zaheer Abbas batting like an absolute dream, it seemed Pakistan would pull off quite a heist against the Australians in their own backyard. But Glenn McGrath, the old miser crashed their party by claiming the wicket of Abbas for 91 and that of Inzamam-ul-Haq the very next ball for a golden duck, all while conceding runs at only 4.50 per over in a match where everyone else routinely went for rates between 5-6 per over.

    [​IMG]

    Javed Miandad helped spark a brief resurgence alongside Sarfraz Ahmed with a quickfire 76-run stand for the 5th wicket, which was fortuitously brought to an end by Brett Lee during his follow through in the 43rd over. Pakistan lost wickets regularly afterwards and eventually that of Miandad in the penultimate over to Mitchell Starc, which proved to the the final nail in the coffin. They finished 11 runs short of Australia's total upon completing their 50-over quota, thus bringing their 5-match unbeaten streak to an end while extending Australia's streak to 5 victories on the trot since an unexpected loss to New Zealand in the first round of the tournament.

    Phew, that was close. Lee did badly with the ball, but he might have redeemed himself. Smith fully justified his inclusion. And McGrath is just legendary.

    WoW, we bowled exceptionally well but kudos to Rahim and Haque they did a lot of damage repair. Thanks to our long batting we survived the match.

    When you have someone like Shoaib it can be dicey. It was not his day and he happened to bowling at flattest of pitches as well which made it worse. Hopefully we will bounce back strongly in the upcoming matches.

    Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers made merry with an unbeaten 230-run partnership for the 4th wicket coming off just 28.4 overs. South Africa added 110 off their final ten, of which 71 came off their last five as Collins Obuya bowled two of the poorest overs at the death in human history.

    With very little to lose in this dead rubber clash, Ravi Shah decided to play his shots and scored a superb 102 off 109 balls. Kenya, who didn't stand much of a chance chasing a total of 323 finished respectably on 280/9 at the close. Unfortunately, they had no victories to show for their efforts in the main draw of the competition after having impressively beaten Afghanistan to qualify for it.

    Despite the loss, we didn't know we could come so close to beating an all-time South African xi. I expected a thrashing, but thank god it wasn't. :p

    England failed to capitalize on a good start provided by Marcus Trescothick at the top of the order by going from 181/4 to 237/9. Their middle and lower orders failed to deliver with Allan Lamb putting up the only contribution of note. He eventually ran out of partners in the end, finishing unbeaten on 53 off 76 balls as England were bowled out for 250.

    Sri Lanka underwent a collapse quite similar to England's after having started their run chase on a high with Sanath Jayasuriya and Tillakaratne Dilshan putting up 93 for the first wicket in very quick time. They had been brought down to their last man by the 47th over still needing another 22 runs for victory.

    [​IMG]

    But luckily they still had Mahela Jayawardene battling on for his team, and their No 11 in Muttiah Muralitharan proved to be a more than capable bat in this situation. They prevailed by 1 wicket with an over to spare, thereby guiding Sri Lanka to a berth at the Super Sixes stage at the expense of England.
