India vs Australia: Misbah backs Dhoni
Pakistan captain, Misbah ul Haq who quit from ODI cricket after the loss of quarter finals match against Australia by six wickets backs team India and said that Dhoni and Co are favorites and they will have Edge over hosts Australia. Misbah ul Haq feels that Pitch at Sydney Cricket Ground(SCG) will suits the spinners and lack of quality spinners in Australia team will be their minus point, unlike Australia India has quality spinners in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin and R Jadeja who scalped 12 wickets in the tournament. It is already proved in quarter finals between Sri Lanka and South Africa where spinners took 7 wickets (Imran Tahir 4, Duminy 3 wickets). Apart from spinners batsmen will have some assistance from the pitch as seen when Australia scored 376 against Sri Lanka, South Africa scoring 408 against West Indies. In reply to Misbah ul Haq, Michael Clarke said “we didn’t see any spun against Sri Lanka in our match and more importantly what type of pitch prepared is important, if it has some grass on it then it will suit pace bowling. We have spinners in our team to take in the final team. Cricket Australia was in thought of picking Xavier Doherty into the final team. Clarke also that India is playing well with 7 wins and facing them is a good challenge. He also feels that playing in Australia for the past 2 months helped them to adapt for the conditions.
