Can we play the last final and beat them again, or do we have to come back now?

I recommend that BCCI hires Hayden as Team India's motivator-in-chief.

Watched the last 4 overs on LCD screen over at the office canteen. Looked like half the office was parked at the canteen ..

Well deserved win.. Pathan finally delivered at the last possible minute !!

Congrats INDIAN TEAM..we did it.

Last time when we toured Australia Waugh lost the captaincy.Hope this time also Ponting does the same )

Heard symonds can get ban for 5tests and 10 one days or can even go up to life ban.

spadival Well same was the condition in our small pantry with the room being packed for the last 20 overs of the match. Was awesome stuff and poor ponting gets only a STUMP to take home.

I guess that was the most common scene in almost all of the offices in India.



Way to go !

Whats the matter about this ban? Is this the same old bhajji issue or something new?

Can you believe that some team had a meeting in the only floor where there is a TV in our office? Unfortunately, I did not get to watch the match, but was following cricinfo.

What a match it was! Good that India has given back to those foul-mouthed Aussie cricketers. They deserved what they got and we deserved what we got. Way to go, the young ones!

That was for the shoulder charge that Symonds gave to the streaker. You can read what happened here:

Cricinfo - Symonds shoulder charges streaker

However he should escape any penalty as he was only defending himself. The streaker was running towards Symonds. And anyways knowing the "fair" refeering we've seen so far, its likely Symonds will get away scot free.

Back to the topic.

Ponting quoted that the third final will be unnecessary as they expected to win 2-0. I guess he meant India. :-)

Talk about Mental Disintegration !!

CONGRATULATIONS TEAM INDIA
For this magnificient victory. Unfortunately we dont have a TV inside the office.. but almost everyone were so concentrating on Cricinfo, cricket365, rediff, sify etc etc .. What a relief after those tense moments.
Tomorrow our cricket enthusiasts in office are planning for a small treat for all the employees..

The ban is for bringing down the streaker rugby style. Some clause says you cannot bodily harm opponents/players/spectators - read about it on cricinfo.

"Great Win"
Indians just pounded the Australians,
I think all the aussie players should be paraded naked
and made to apologise to every Indian player.

When Symonds plays for Hyderabad in the IPL,
I will be in the stands dressed as "Bajrang Bali".
