Yes, I saw some of the game. Rather a lot of fuss for a game of rounders which I consider one day cricket so to be! And in between all of the ads, on the pitch, at the side of the pitch, on the players shirts, on TV at every break, I might have manage to see a little Cricket.

[] [] Champions! [] []

Best world cup ever!! []

This meant the world to Sachin. You could see that in his eyes when he hugged the boys. It was heart warming when they boys carried him and took him around the pitch. They won it for Sachin, oh yes they did. The whole of India wanted the WC as much for Sachin as for themselves.


And Dhooni? [] That man is special. He's unnaturally calm, absolutely cool and a good wicket keeper Although I was disappointed with his overall batting, he has been a fantastic captain. And as one of the commentators has stated during the final match, everything he had touched had turned to gold. []

This may be the final transgression that revokes my Australian citizenship, but I am really pleased to see a country other than my own and other European nations win the WC. []

Personal opinion, but Test is so long I don't have the patience to watch the full game; can't imagine playing on the field all day. Must be tiring, but shows great stamina.

Is anyone planning to see any games in Aug/Sept? I'm trying to get tickets...

'Indian Premier League'. Basically, a bunch of teams playing against each other to win. You've got newbies, oldbies and the professionals. []

I think India are planning to have league similar to this for football too. []

(Incidentally, IPL is also a module I had to do during Yr1 of Uni - 'Interprofesional Professional Learning'. Boring and pointless. [] )

Simple answer, yes. []

Nice to see Cooky (a.k.a. Eyeliner Boy) make a captain's knock the other day. I think the match was actually a lot closer than the commentators made it out to be, although we were definitely second best.

I do think it odd in a way that here we are facing the best Test team in the world with two of our main batsmen both out of sorts, Petersen and Strauss. I can't help but think that in the older days, had this been Australia in their time of prompt they would have dropped both players one of them been captain or no. He has to make runs!

Too true, mate. Too true. The selectors in this land in years of yore were a merciless mob. They had a depth of talent, however, to use to their advantage that other nations envied. Oh how times have changed, and yet just as well else it would be an utterly boring sport.

That said, it's damn hard to replace under-performing players if there is no one to replace them with.
