India sets the target of 259 to Oz in second fianls of CB series

Today India takes on the mighty Oz in the second finals of CB series. India leads the game by 1-0. Earlier Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. Sreesanth replaced the man in form I.Sharma who is suffering from finger injury. The openers Sachin and Robin played sensibly and scored 94 run first wicket partnerships. Then Robin got out in 30 by a bad shot. Then Gambhir went for quick 15. Yuvraj played some mighty hit and scored quick 38. At this point, India looked to cross 280 marks so easily. After the wicket of Yuvraj, the things turned completely. Sachin once again got cramp. He played some brilliant shot and once again he loses his wicket in 91. Then Dhoni played brilliantly, blocked the ball, left the ball, hit the ball hard straight to fielders hand. He absolutely not fit to play in slog overs. Last 10 overs we scored just 40 runs with 1 six and 4 fours. All the credit goes to Oz fielders (Pointing, Clark and Symonds) and to their bowlers (Bracken, M.clark and Hopes).

Indian bowlers have to work hard to stop the Oz batsmen to chase the target. Fielding should be absolutely quick and sharp in order to restrict them from getting the runs.
