Boys in BLUE do INDIA Proud…..

It is two in the night and I still can’t refrain myself from doing this entry, because I just saw something which is still hard to believe. INDIA beating world champions Australia in the semis!!!

The match from the very outset was a blinder with Yuvraj lusty hitting powering India to a respectable total.Australia, the team they are, were in the hunt for most of the time, until our spirited bowlers pulled it off.Certainly one of the best Cricket matches you’ll see ever, the intensity , the pace and the skill on show from both teams was exhilirating.

I can’t help but remembering those drooping faces of the Indian team that was going down against SriLanka in the WC earlier this year, and how , literally everyone had written them off, (surely I did). I personally had seen nothing of cricket after that since T20 happened.This Indian juggernaut not only has brought life to Indian cricket and cricket as a whole but also brought about an amazing belief in our young brigade,and I think we all need to take a queue from them, that given the situation ,we’ve got what it takes to beat the best and be the Best!!

And now this brings us to the clash of the titans……INDIA v PAKISTAN in the finals.We have seen them fighting in the WCs, but never have I seen both these teams fighting each other in a game as big as this.Both young teams, without their senior players, both have done exceptionally well in the tournament.It would surely be a clash to witness!!

So boys and girls, whatever you do, take your leave from office, college guys would not mind a MASS BUNK, but kindly stay at home. 5:30PM , Monday is when the action begins!!!!!
