Small scores are still better - India agree

At least India agree with us today, because they won a low-scoring match. West Indies bowled India out for 189, but India defended it. We were only watching the scorecard and it was nailbiting. Low scores are better. Every run counts.

In hindsight, Dinesh Karthik and Ajit Agarkar's partnership was crucial. India were 90-7 when they came together and you don't win many games from that position. However, Karthik hit 63 and Agarkar a more than handy 40.

In reply, Shiv was the only West Indian batsman to offer resistance with 66. Everyone's favourite uncool spinner, Ramesh Powar took 3-42 for India. He's always worth a mention. In fact, let's make him the accompanying picture.

Being uncool is the new cool. At least that's what our girlfriend tells us.

Yet another dent in Ponting's "future of one-day cricket" hypothesis.

In fact, this series is indicative of the way one-day cricket has been played even in a post 435-run-chase era - i.e. for every game with a >300 score, there is one with a <200 score.

To boil down the art/science of one-day cricket to a mere six-hitting runfest every time is to undermine its complexity. (And also just kind of daft). Perhaps Ponting should just "eat his own spit."
