baah! Max was fixed I've seen better acting in a tamil movie! Only problem was that they couldn't reach their 126 target, and the plan kinda fell apart!

Actually Tamil movies are known for good acting, and this is coming from somebody in Karnataka, so better believe it. Actually you could say you have seen better acting from Esha Deol. Oh boy, she can't act if her life depended on it.

I had retired from watching/following cricket just before the World Cup at WI. Totally lost touch with it. However, I decided to come out of retirement for T20, just to checkout the new format. Like all the veterans I felt I still had some cricket left me. And it is so.

Damn, I like the T20, it's like starting at slog overs. Doesn't waste the whole day, gets over in 4 hours or less. Very first match I saw ended in tie and bowl-outs. I even got to see six sixers from Yuvi. For me enjoyment has returned to cricket.

I agree to Samurai, I think most of cricket fans parted their way from watching cricket. Twenty20 have really brought new life to this game.

Man watching India winning in Boul out was real fun.
Cheers

Surely an India - Pak final now

But SA choked real bad. They needed 27 off 22 to reach 126. Around a run a ball. Wonder how they couldn't manage that.

Coz they were still looking at getting the 154 needed for an outright win ... thus going for BIG shots instead of playing sensibly !!! {Pressure is a strange thing and makes the smartest and wisest crack up and thats what happened

Certainly points to some unnatural cricket by SA, especially towards the end when they just seemed to have forgotten batting. But that cannot take away the brilliant performance of Rohit Sharma(reminds me of Sanjay Manjrekar) & RP SIngh, not to forget Karthik.

I think the present team is good, the young team should be given a fair chance while the experienced once(Ganguly, Sachin , Dravid) should take a break for a while.
I think Dhoni will make a good captain, jelling well with the team. lets hope it works for the team. though might be early in making this statement.
