Jeor Posted March 12, 2011 Share Posted March 12, 2011 Great pullback from South Africa, restricting India to only 296 after the great start they had. At 1/267 with more than 10 overs to go plus the batting powerplay India really should have blasted at least 90-100 more runs and gotten themselves to 350+ but they could only manage 29 more runs in the last 10 overs. In fact in those last 10 overs they lost 9/29!Although South Africa's batting lineup is thin (a long tail) and they aren't great against spin, I think they might have a chance in this one. India's bowling is still not great and if a couple of the South African batsmen fire, 296 actually shouldn't be too bad given that 300+ scores have already been successfully chased down in this World Cup. This will be a good test for India's bowlers to see if they can hold their nerve. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
