What an evening Monday night was – all of India were on the edge of their seats while watching the fantastic subcontinent final between India and Pakistan. And what a game! Really such a perfect ending for an exciting competition, and who can’t like a format that means you can watch over a few beers after work and still be home by 9pm. Dhoni’s crew were awesome, for once not saddled with expectations, pressure and guilt of their older players, the young guys could go out and play how they wanted to. Compared to the semi final between NZ and Pakistan, this game was awesome and New Zealand didn’t really deserve to make it through any further. What was Taylor thinking with all those run outs and dropped catches? he was a disappointment for me.
The Indian team arrived back in Mumbai today and were greeted by crowds the whole 20km into South Mumbai. So much happiness and relief that India is finally a success in the cricket arena again, the public was hungry to see scenes like this again!
