WC T20 - Super 8 : India in deep trouble against Oz

An India Aussie match and if India loses, the 21 year old Ravindrasinh Anirudhsinh Jadeja is most likely to be made the villain. 
Dhoni won the toss and decided to bowl stating that there would bit of swing for the fast bowlers at the early morning start. But India has gone in with only two pacers – Zaheer & Nehra.  Dhoni opened with Harbajan and the first over was a maiden.  Second one of Nehra went for 12; another tight one by Bhaji.  Fourth over Jadeja came to bowl – 4,5,6 all went for sixers by Watson.  He came back in the 10th over and the first three disappeared into the stands – now hit by Warner. His two overs costing 38. 
End of over 16 – Aussie cruising at 161/2 and score of 200+ was within the realms of possibility.  Yuvraj and Ashish Nehra bowled the death well and there were no sixes in the last four – Aussies finished with 184/5 –having conceded 16 in the first 16. 
At the time of posting this, India is looking down the barrel with 3 gone for 17 after 3.4 (Murali, Gambhir and Raina back in the pavilion)
