Cricket: Disappointing End To Ind-SA ODI Series.

Team India without Sehwag, Tendulkar and Gambhir nearly won the first ever ODI series in South Africa. First match was one sided with SA winning hands down. Then came the two suspense thrillers with nail biting wins for India. Team India leading the series 2-1.

But then, disappointment. Not because India lost the next two, but because rains marred both with D/L method coming into play. Without the rains well, you never knew!

The fifth and last one dayer today was again on the verge of being an incredible one. From a doomed position o eight wicket down Yusuf Pathan hit a breathtaking century and a few more lusty hits from him would have shaped the most mind boggling victory for Team India. This man Pathan has already become a terror for all the teams in World Cup starting next month. And, Indian bowlers did a tremendous job giving Team India a chance to win at least four matches. Good signals!

On the minus, India batsmen could not rise up to the challenge. Okay without key three players, but if all top order batsmen fail you have no business to win. A lone Pathan or Virat or Harbhajan cannot win you matches all the time. Also, Dhoni should win a little more tosses though it's all up to the coin to decide.

Team India lost the ODI Series 2-3, but they scored high on many counts which will count well for the World Cup.

Now, put everything in place for the World Cup! As Chief Selector Srikkanth has already announced the best team to win it!
