yet another Indian collapse in a final...

After a nail biting win in de previous odi at the oval , the two teams india and england were all set to face the music in the final game being played at a historical venue-The Lords.. India struggled from the start wit ganguly looking wary. Sachin looked to continue his usual form and seemed to be set for a big score. india lost the wicket of ganguly around the sixth over. then there was a brief partnership between sachin and gambhir ..after the fall of gambhir wit the score on 50 england managed to strike two major blows (dravid n sachin) with the help of the umpire's poor decision. india looked to consolidate through robin uthappa n yuvraj singh.. but after a brief partnership between the two , a lapse of concentration made uthappa go wild at a slower ball from dmitri mascharranes and was caught at mid off .. then it was yuvraj's turn to take the long walk to the pavillion.. Now India are in a diasasterous situation at 169/9 of 45 overs.. I hope Dhoni takes india to a decent total by the end of 50 overs.
