If I was in your shoes and sitting on top of two wins in warm up matches, I would be thinking the following.
- We never had warm-up games before in any world cup. Good that we got to play two to get the feel of the conditions.
- Its great that we played well against Holland (the same team that troubled Indians in WC opener last time) and beat them comprehensively. But in this match also, Holland managed to slow down Indians after initial flurry (something to work on).
- We played great against West Indies. Well creamed them. This happened because your bowlers did amazing to dismiss Lara and folks, under 100. Now Indian bowlers (normally the weaker link in the side) can breath easy and exhume with confidence.
-Although, the batsmen didn't get enough chance in second one dayer, the match did expose Sehwag again and gave him enough to think about.
All these reasons are enough to cheer about Rahul. You guys are a good team in this WC and I am very hopeful that you guys will be successful this time.
