A Perfect Cricket Match
7 Sep 07
Yes the last match for Indian team will be a memorable one and also what the cricket fans and the Indian supporters. Not only was the team in deep trouble because they had to win the match at any cost so that they can play the final. Also there was a major captaincy problem when the captain gave a part-time bowler in the last over to bowl and it went for 30 lengths. It is always very difficult to chase the score which is 300 plus whatever team did a good job. The two openers the two pillars of the Indian team give a good start which provided the platform for the middle order batsman to play and though what they did in the match. It was really a team effort all credit goes to the team for believing in themselves and then winning the match. Differently and looking forward for the final at Lord's.

Yes. I too saw that match. One of the fabulous matches in Indian cricket history. I never thought India would come too close because usually, there will be a nice partnership and after that, they will all fall like a pack of cards. But in this match uthappa and dhoni did a very good job and it was very thrilling and pleasent to watch.

The first match that came to my mind when I saw yesterday's match was the Natwest Final at Lords when the young Kaif and Yuvraj won the day for us. Then the next thought that stuck me was by God the next match is going to be at Lords!! So what a fitting finale for likes of Sachin, Saurav and possibly Dravid for all of whom this could be the last international on English soil!! Cheers! Ram

I was also thinking of starting a discussion on this win.After Initial flying start by Ganguly and Tendulkar and good knock by Gautam Gambhir,it looked like a lost cause after Yuvraj and Rahul Dravid had got out. I went away as I had a remote call at that time. But Robin Utthapa and Dhoni powered India to an exciting win . Ohhh!! I missed out on the last moments. But hats off to India to pull out such a win .
