3 victories in a row for Team India. Hmmm!
When was the last time we beat Pakistan in a final match of a series involving 3 or more teams?

I don't care if we lose. But what I don't want to see is a collapse! If we lose, I hope we go down fighting till the last ball! Likewise if we win! I just want to watch an interesting match!

The toss will be important. If we win it I'm sure we'll bat first. Then Dhoni Yuvraj and the boys should start hammering the ball around. A total in excess of 180 with some good bowling to back up should do the trick for us.

I could go home to watch the match, but I will be setting a very bad example by doing so. Alas, the downside of being a boss.

My boss told me to go home and take the conference call we have. He is doing the same so told me to go as well.


Any website broadcasting teh match live on teh internet. Few of my colleagues are stuck at office.

There's a company here that follows random seating - your seating is decided by a computer at the point you swipe your access card & you get a little printout telling you where you sit today.

I hope you dont have such a system - else you may get the watchman's seat.

I guess the only reason not to have it at the above mentioned time is to have a fair battle on the field and not allow light, dew and other factors affect the final match of the tourney.

It would be nice to see our boys chase for once.
