The not so formidable bowling attack of Australia defended the modest score of 250 runs on a good batting pitch. The all-round display by Shane Watson helped the Aussies to win the Mohali match. India started well, Sewag hitting the ball to all parts of the ground. As it happens most of the time, he did not lost long. Master blaster, Tendulkar, was shaping his innings well. Cricket fans were hoping that he would cross the all-important milestone of scoring 17000 runs in ODI. However, a wrong decision by the umpire (as confirmed by the television reply) adjudging him as out, to a ball which was pitched outside the leg stump, turned out be the turning point of the match. After that, India lost wickets at regular intervals and the run rate started climbing. Harbhajan Singh did his best. That was not good enough for India. He and Praveen Kumar have demonstrated in this series so far, that they have the potential to become genuine all rounders. The team management should take note this and utilize their batting potential to the maximum in the overall interest of the team India.
