CWC15 - Zim hit 287, India Bowlers Put To the Sword

#Zim vs #Ind, #EdenPark, #Auckland

For the first time this #CWC15, the India bowlers were put under the hammer big time and shook them up. They looked rattled, a lot of on-pitch discussions followed and overall they looked out of sorts as long as #BrendonTaylor was at the crease.

The spinners (very surprisingly) took most of the beating at the hands of Taylor and Williams. The batsmen attacked them from the word go and forced them into defensive lines. Ashwin and Jadeja didnt bowl very badly though. They kept the bowl up and gave good air but just that Taylor was in the "mood" to dispatch them all over Eden Park.

At one stage, it looked as if India would be chasing 320+ but once Taylor went for a blistering 138, the tail didn't push it on and got out for 287. This is still a competitive score and will give their bowlers something to try and put Indian batting under pressure.

Lot of thinking for India before the knockout games.
Bangladesh is watching this!!
