We utterly pantsed ‘em. Bowled them out for 255 and made the runs without losing a wicket of our own. Finch and Warner were in control throughout.
Hmmmm

I'm in a conference call with a crew from India and strangely, nobody is interested in talking cricket. On other occasions they will be desperate to talk about anything remotely related such as which brand of helmet player X prefers. Today, nothing. Not a word.

It seems Warner's awesome ODI world cup form has been lost in the memory hole.
It hasn't. I was referring to exactly what they've done - they've roared out threatening to take out an entire team's total before but can't recall them doing it until now?

In one way it's amazing they've achieved it but in another it's amazing it hadn't happened before.

Am hearing similar sentiment.

Starting to question whether the Republic of India are even involved in cricket?

Right now crickets are all that's coming out of them (pun int).

It was like watching an American sitcom without the laugh track - you couldn't tell if we had a wicket in some cases, because of zero crowd noise. Initially, I didn't realise the Smith run out was out as there was so little reaction. Same with a couple of the catches.
Gotta get me some replay action.

Yet when they were batting they cheer every single like they had just won the World Cup. Makes it’s annoying while you’re trying to watch while doing the dishes.

Storm - Victory
Credit where credits due that is an absolute shellacking
Doesn't seem to have received the media it deserved. To thrash the Indians the way they did on their home turf - sensational win. Broke a few records along the way too. Media reporting somewhat underplayed I thought.
