I really fancy India for this, despite the different conditions to home. I reckon this is the best allround India team for quite a while, and Pak are in transition and not that good IMO.

Forecast to be cloudy after lunch and Pak's best chance is to bowl 2nd.

Not confirmed but looks true

If rain comes after 20 overs
To win Pak need to be...
104/0
114/1
128/2
146/3
168/4
194/5

If its a 20 overs game, target will be 173.

The target for Pakistan will be 289 from 41 overs as per the DLS method. Unconfirmed sources.. Scratch that. Quickly. The rain(sprinkle) is back! So, as to pile on agony for the players and a bout of embarrassment for me and my calculations. The fly on the wall did buzz into my ears that it was supposed to start at 21:25 PM IST(16:55 PM) but then the heavens opened up. Alas, the wait continues

16:47 Local Time, 15:47 GMT, 21:17 IST: I am getting to hear now that it would indeed start in 8 mins approx. The target would be 289 from 41 overs. Live visuals tell us that the blue skies have made a grand entry. So, the game should recoil as the covers are being peeled off.

I got caught there a bit, although did at least get my Indian green up reasonably with a couple of k at 1.25, but I had put too much green on Pak for that to suffice for a really good result. The most irritating thing is not having another k at 1.3, which I think I'd have put on if I'd not been too busy.

Still, won a bit on the toss, the match and a little on CMM so mustn't grumble.
