The Well Deserved TIE…

Wow… what a convincing result…no team deserved the loss!!! This was my expression at the end of today’s match. What else can any one expect after a nerve wrenching match? Of course, win of either side would have lifted the spirit of the game, but the tie has kept the spirit of the players who are probably playing the important phase of cricket of their lives.

Sachin played an unconventional innings of his modern cricketing attitude bringing back the glorious memories of him of 1999-2000 with those remarkable sixes. Yuvi’s competitive innings has a lot to do with the confidence it brings to the Indian dressing room. At the end Zaheer proved it. On the whole it was a good game today, and of course I can not end this post without mentioning that I had missed Dhoni’s stunning Captaincy, both in terms of the knock as well as the field settings. Hope he gets his rhythm as soon as possible.

The English captain was the only specimen who made me not to be selfish about India’s win. I do believe that it would have been a famous win if it was either of the sides ending on the top, but this will remain as a good inspiring work for all the teams who will be chasing the big under lights.

Ok, Sunday Smiles popped up on my face at the end and for me “this is it …”

Few more such matches will make me happy for being able to witness the WC’11.

I don’t want to hide the fact that today’s performance of India, especially the bowling makes me look forward for more good matches, and convincing wins to be specific. I feel India can and will work it out.
