World Cup Comes to India, So what If It’s T20

photocms.jpg India last won the cricket World Cup in 1983. I was seven at that time, grown up enough to see Kapil Dev lift the coveted trophy, but then again far too young to to truly appreciate what it meant.

Now when India has once again won the World Cup, I have been able to enjoy and appreciate every ball, shot, and catch that the Indian players took. At least on three occasions it seemed as if Pakistan would take the Cup, but India kept coming back. What made it even more special was having Tina by my side to watch it with me.

Great going guys, India is proud of you.

When Yuvraj Went Berserk

yuvrajsingh.jpgWhat happens when one Andrew Flintoff pisses off one Yuvraj Singh? Well, nothing much, only Flintoff’s bowling partner S Broad gets hit for six sixes of six balls!

I don’t know what Flintoff said, but whatever it was, it was enough to launch Yuvraj into a blitzkrieg of 58 runs of 16 balls, including seven sixes and three fours. One more thing, Yuvraj’s last six came off Flintoff’s bowling. The fact that ultimately it was Flintoff who got Yuvraj out, comes as small consolation for the Englishman. S Broad isn’t amused, not the least!
