    What will the score be?

    India's stand-in captain Virender Sehwag indicated that the top order lineup for tomorrow could be quite explosive.
    Robin Uthappa could open with me and Dhoni could be batting up the order. Dhoni is a real sensation and he has not got much chance to bat. This being his home ground, we hope to promote him up the order.
    So India's score could be something like 120/1 in the 15th over ... or 30/3 in the third over ... or 10/2 in the fourth over (thanks for the optimism, Ganesh).

    An expected loss by India. Maybe a touch too hospitable to the Englishmen?

    RJ: The Guwahati rain definitely threw a spanner in the works as far as the rotation was concerned. But I still found it strange that we went in with a seam bowling attack which had played 13 one-dayers and taken 19 wickets, all of them to RP Singh!

    That was indeed strange. The think tank of the Indian team probably had decided that this particular match is a dead rubber game, where the new faces would be given a match and possibly someone would shine through. Unfortunately that didnt happen.

    I watched the Indian innings and there was a most definite air of complacency in the manner that most of the players handled themselves on the field.

    I would not be surprised if the 'novices' were lulled into security by being instructed to 'do your best, if you do well, that will be good, if you dont, this match will not be considered an important one. One big happy family.

    With Dravid back for the Indore outing, I believe you will see a changed mindset, even with Sehwag, Kaif and Dhoni likely to be sitting it out.

    4-1 is a great scoreline, 5-0 would have been emphatic, 6-0 convincing. Hope the 7th results in a 5-1 series wrap.

    my do paisa worth.

    rj: It was obviously a dead rubber game. Athers (?) commented when Yuvraj was out that he came out in a manner indicating that he'd rather be somewhere else. Dhoni is definitely sitting out. I am sure Sehwag will too, not sure about Kaif.
