India fails again...

India lost the third one day match against England at Birmingham, chasing 282 for victory, the Indians were bundled out for 239. The batting failed miserably, the two southpaws Ganguly and Yuvraj made valuable contributions, but Sachin, Dhoni, Dravid, and Karthik failed to score.

The bowling was O.K. but the fielding was extremely poor, lots of dropped catches, missed run-outs and bad or rather horrible throws from the deep to the wicket. Let Karthik be the specialist wicket-keeper, Dhoni should focus on his batting, he has strong arms, and can be stationed in the deep while fielding.

Robin Uthappa seems to have become the specialist substitute, he deserves to play a couple of matches, I feel that sending Sreesanth home and playing Agarkar was a grave error. With four more matches to go, lets hope for the best.
