Aussies lackluster batting performance in Kotla ground is responsible for their second consecutive defeat against India. Ponting was surely missing the services of Gilchrist, Mathew Hayden and Andrew Symonds, the all time big, awesome, hitters in the game. These players were capable of taking any bowling attack head-on and single handedly win matches for their side. After winning the toss, Ponting elected to bat and opened the innings with Watson. Both struggled to score runs at a brisk rate. Ponting was more cautious, aware the absence of big hitters in the side. The average per over score was around four runs, until the 40th over. One expected the firework in the last ten overs. However, nothing happened. The final score of 220 odd runs was never a tough target for the strong batting line-up of India. Dhoni and Yuvraj played sensibly and India had no difficulty in reaching the target. Its good, India won the match. However, the real action was missing. Long live the phenomenal hitters.
