cow-analysis

COW Analysis: After the unexpected defeat in the previous match, India was expected to come back strongly. But the top order batting was a worry. On a flat pitch and small ground when Sehwag won the toss India had the chance to make up for it. It started with the decision to open with Gambhir and Viru again. 17 runs after 4 quickly changed to 63/0 off 10 and then to 149/0 after 20 as India’s COW jumped to 60%. Gambhir was soon run out for 67 as expected but Viru continued with Raina as all Indian batsmen made most of the chance to regain form. Raina fell for 55 but it didn’t stop India as Sehwag blasted his way past 150 and eventually even breaking Sachin’s record of 200 with plenty to go. Just when it seemed he would smash 250, he fell for 219 but misery continued for West Indies as India piled up 418/5 with COW of 82%. West Indies weren’t expected to make a fight of this and 59/1 after 9 quickly turned to 100/5 after 16 as West Indies’ COW dropped to 26%. Indian spinners took advantage of the pressure to pick off the batsmen as they struggled to put up a fight. Ramdin was the sole saving grace as he defied the Indian with a fighting 96 and was the last man out as West Indies were all out of 265 to lose by 153 runs.
