1. they are high pressure(read eliminator) matches 2. India is yet to win by chasing high score. 3. middle order dhoni,raina,jadeja out of touch 4.bowlers may have off day like in finals of 2003 WC finals. 5. sometime defeat teaches you more, win hides lot. so batsmen, bowler be mentally ready for everything from QF onwards.
Sometimes it seems that india beat a strong team like SA, when all seems lost. The SA was totally spineless inspite of our bowlers being last lustre for the last ten outings. Is there something fishy or india are plain lucky
The first bouncer was bowled to Dhawan at 138 & he hooked it straight in the hands.SA captain ran himself out when there was no second run.The SA batsman refused to hit anyone out of attack.Is it Cronije affair being revisited?ZmEQH
