Yuvi our man.. what a time to get back into form... In his 6 innings, already scored 4 fifties and a century. he is our best spinner.

Timely innings by Raina.

Lets get ready for the hottest match in this WC -- Ind vs Pak in semis

Dude, are you the next Nostradamus ? Awesome prediction man .. Almost there.
What a match it turned out to be. I almost lost all hope when Dhoni was out. Well played Yuvi, this guy is on fire. And last time he was on fire was when India won the T20. Hope for the best..

Well deserved win by India. A team effort will never fail. Oz could have won this match, if they would have left their aggressiveness in their dressing room and aimed the wickets.

They were concentrating on how to put the bouncers and shot balls and it costed many extras. never seen Oz like this.

And ponting wasted a slip fielder till the end of the match.

Brett Lee's commitment towards the match was saluted/commendable. But, he bleeded blue.

Another helluva game next Wednesday between Pak and India, Munaf will be out and either Sreesanth/Chawla will play in. India will win it and meet SA in the finals. And Sachin lifts the cup.

2011 is India's world cup year.

If India needed test of nerves before a semis match, this would have given them more than that. Now this teams morale and confidence will be at another level after this win. Waiting for the clash of the tournament.

Yuvi proved his class.. Played the finisher's role with cool head.. stylishly.
And it was Raina's stand that made it easy for him to take India home..
Yuvi reminded me the role Michael Beaven played for Oz so many times ..
He was Yuvraj of Oz..
Dhoni is really a lucky guy finding himself safe in the hands of Sachin, Sehvag, Gambhir, Kohli & Yuvi.. everybody else
You can find his 'famous' helicopter shot either in ads or in repeat telecast of old matches..
All izz well!!!

I bet the first semi at Mohali is going out to be just one sided...
No any guesses required ..
Bye Ozs then,

Good thing is that the team is coming up together. Thankfully they have not yet peaked. If you peak too early, you will lose. Just my two cents.

IMO the winner of this semi final is favourite to win the WC. What do ya say?

Yuvi can't do anything wrong in this world cup. He has really taken his game to another level.

Just like last game against Pak, Brett Lee's commitment was on full display. Brought back memories of Anil Kumble bowling with broken jaw.

South Africa will need to play really well to beat Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka.
