Hello all my cricket Lovers here Ji, Following is a big news for all cricket loving members and my brotherns in particular. http://in.news.yahoo.com/20/20090914/381/tsp-tendulkar-harbhajan-script-india-s-t.html [b]"Mon, Sep 14 10:46 PM T V Sriram Colombo, Sep 14 (PTI) Sachin Tendulkar''s 44th ODI century and Harbhajan Singh''s five-wicket haul scripted India''s tri-series triumph as the visitors raised their game when it mattered most and cruised to a 46-run win in the final cricket match against Sri Lanka here tonight. Thumped by 139 runs in their Saturday''s meeting which cost them world number one ODI team''s tag, India first amassed 319 for five and then shot out Sri Lanka for 273 in 46.4 overs to settle score. Chasing a mammoth 320-run target, Sri Lanka got the perfect start from Tillakaratne Dilshan (42 off 29 balls) and Sanath Jayasuriya (36) before running out of steam. Down the order, the 70-run stand between Thilina Kandamby (66) Chamara Kapugedera (35) was a mere act of defiance and not enough to turn the match on its head. Harbhajan Singh (5/56) was the wrecker-in-chief even though he missed a hat-trick chance. Earlier, the Indian top order fired in unison and Tendulkar''s majestic 133-ball 138 lifted them to a massive 319 for five wickets after Mahendra Singh Dhoni had won an important toss and elected to bat. Tendulkar raised 95 runs with makeshift opener Rahul Dravid (39) and 110 with next man in Dhoni (56) and then Yuvraj Singh (56) provided the late charge to take the tally past the 300-mark.

It felt good when India won. Especially after hearing the statistics that India had lost around 17 matches out of the 25 finals they had reached. Also it was a tough match since India were missing top players like Sehwag, Gambhir, and Zaheer.

It is great to see the Men in Blue win. However, our Team's inconsistency still bugs me. One day we are no.1 in the world. The next we plummet to no.3 and again we are back at no.2! When shall we be consistent with our batting & bowling? The team just gives up proper batting and scores just 16o odd one day and the same team scores over 300 runs just two days later! I just hope our bowlers and the great Sachin carries this good form into the Champions Trophy and brings that piece of silverware back home for us!
