The india cricket dream

Posted on September 29, 2007. Filed under: Cricket, India, Sports |

I, for one, was not overly excited about the twenty 20 world cup even before it started. And it wasn’t because Team India was not the best side in the lineup. But as always, in the end, i cheered for India yet again.

To say that India deserved the victory would be robbing them of all their hard work. I was actually surprised to see the level of discipline, commitment and the attitude of the India cricket team. They truly came above the rest, and outperformed other world class teams like Australia, South Africa, England and Pakistan when it mattered the most. Kudos to the team for the fine performance!!

An India-Pakistan final is always the best sight to watch. An unending rivalry between the nations make it more than just a game. Although i was not entirely pleased by the way the bowlers almost gave away the match in the dying overs, what mattered most was that the team wins! And it did exactly that in dramatic style!! I’d dare say this was the perfect finish to the inaugural Twenty 20 world cup.

And special mention to Yuvraj’s fine knocks! He really turned the heat on against England with the 12 ball 50 which included 6 sixes of a single over! And not to mention the 20 ball 70 against the aussies which ended up in India setting an imposing target of 189 runs. The young man is back, more mature and is striking the ball as cleanly as one has seen. I hope his fine run continues against the crucial series against the Aussies and Pakistan at home.

Indian Cricket is back to life! And how!!
