"India have won the TT world cup", said Ravi Shastri. He'll be thinking "What was that all about?". TT World cup? If there was anything that went wrong with this game of cricket, that was it. The Paki's have nothing to be ashamed of. Misbah-ul-Haq, if he does that after a day of fasting, I wonder what he'd do when he's well fed?
I was sceptical about Dhoni's appointment as captain, but this guy is the real thing. The way he thinks and puts his thoughts into action, he's not just a fan's captain, but also a players captain. But its such a thankless game ,isnt it. A few bad games and he'd be cursed!
But lets not spoil the moment. India have won, not the "TT" but the Twenty20 World Cup. Its a moment that'll be remembered. There's something I remember other than this. The first time it took me 20 minutes to get out of the Infy MLPL. The first time I saw a thousand people walking out of the gate at 1645 and the first time, I saw hundreds of Infoscions waiting to get picked up by a bus, hitching hikes and standing helplessly to get home to watch India win! And did they win! India was destiny's team and as I was thinking on my way back, there were just too many prayers going their way, for this young, fearless, "all go no quit" team to lose.
As I watch replays of Bhajji and Irfan doing their crazy "happy dance", I've just got two and a half words for ya, "Chak-de India!"
