In the minds of many, the one real battle in the world cup. Inspite of a stellar performance by Wahab Raza. The lads in green lose to the blue boys.

Celebrations like you have never seen outside of a India-Pakistan cricket match, also equal scale in national mourning on the other side.

Regardless of what happens in the finals, in the mind of the average Indian, the cup was won on 29th March 2011. A fact : TV for the Indo-Pak semifinal were more expensive than those for the final. The streets were empty all day, and offices had declared half-working day just so people could catch this match on the telly. Record sales of beer the day before and take-away and home delivery restaurants being swamped with orders all day.

The Little Master was at it again

Now for the Srilankans in two days time.

PS: I am sure my wearing of my lucky hat while i watched the match on the telly helped. And the lucky brass knucks too.

edit: There was a 29000 seating capacity in the stadium and it was all sold out and jam-packed.

Still much better than Eggball :P

With, as you call it, "Eggball", at least we can build stadiums for more the 29,000 spectators :P

There are Basketball arenas over here that seat pretty close to 29,000 people.

India Beat Pakistan!!!!

India = Awesome!

Now time to pwn Sri Lanka in the finals.

I reckon that if they take the top order out, the middle order is bound to crumble.

When I first heard about this match, it was from another American who said that "India and Pakistan were duking it out," to which I responded, "Well, that'll end well..."

Awful game for someone without a team to support tbh. Hopefully the Sri Lanka-India game can be more entertaining. Some great batsmen, even if Murali and the Indian bowlers aren't in top form.

The bowlers performed quite well against Pakistan, considering it was not a good pitch for pace.

@Erikz: Me too...

India don't have good bowlers sadly except for Zaheer. Last match though was a better one for our bowlers. Should have seen em early on specially against England worst bowling line up one could find -_-

While living in a previous apartment, I learned that there was a cricket field quite close by. One night I went to watch a game.

I arrived early and paid very close attention as the match progressed.

When all was said and done, I had absolutely no idea what had just happened.

I then went home and found the rules for cricket online. I read them very carefully, in the hope that it might tell me what I had just seen.

No help whatsoever....

Today is the Final, India versus SriLanka. Thankfully, today is only a weekend so half day at work. Will get home just in time to catch the match start. The beer is chilled, friends have been called over, the big screen is ready, the BBQ is ready too. Win or Lose its going to be a good day.
