But I agree with you, let's enter the arena with minimal hope - if we win, everything is a bonus and who would care what we didn't hope for; if we lose, we can always say - I told you so

I think I might too give this a miss. Once I hear firecrackers I'll watch it from there.

The media coverage being given to India Pak match is more than what at least I can bear. Missing out the bigger news Japan, Libya, cash for votes scam, 2G scam, elections etc. etc. Looks as if the life of whole world depends on this match.Horrible journalism.

Very right and added to that, if it was any other sport, will they cover that like this? How about the folks who won golds in C'wealth and asian games, just faded away. Sadly it will still remain, our cricketers will be pampered boys while other sports languish. Maybe but this is what comes out each time i see cricket glorified

Ok guys.

Pakistan Bowling v/s our batting - let's get a belter of a pitch to nuetralise their bowling. Lets take it on batting v/s batting and we shall see.

I am just hoping that our team shuts out all the noise and pressure - just plays sensibly as an unit and gives their best.

Let the match begin.

Go India Go - a billion people are with you.

ps - Nehra is playing ?????????? What is Dhoni thinking ? I would prefer Sreesanth over Nehra.

OFFTOPIC :

Read these in today's TOI on the sidelines of India-Pak worldcup 2011.

Afridi : God, please help us beat India at Mohali
God : Sorry ! I'm opening the batting for India
----------------------------------------------------------------
Afridi : We won't let Sachin score his 100th ton
Misbah : But how will we stop him ?
Afridi : We'll bat first and get all out for less than 100 !!!!

Can any bangaloreans let know of any screenings around Domlur/ Indiranagar/ Koramangla area for todays match?
I work in EGL campus and heard they will be screening on big screen in food court, but not sure yet.

I am seeing (want) an INDIA Vs Sri Lanka final with India putting up a good score on board for Srilanka to chase.

Srilanka to begin well with Dilshan finally getting out by a DIL Scoop and opening the flood gates.

India to win WC 2011 !!

I want whichever team that wins today to win the finals. But there is a possibility that either team (Pak or Ind) may be relaxed after today's match and will not be as focussed on the finals, resulting in SL winning the final. I hope it doesn't come to that.

3 more Hours!!!! Waiting for the Cricket War @ Mohali.
Planned to watch with 3more family friends on open terrace with a rented 50" LCD TV. Praying for a great night party.( after India send pakis back home).
Infact Afridi & mates can straight away walk or Run to Pakistan direct from from Mohali.
ie why Semifinals was planned to play in Mohali near to Pakistan.
