The cricket was pretty mature from both sides. No GLARES, SPATS etc.

Of course, few verbal duals before the match.

Umar Gul claimed that "We would rip through the Indian batting order". The treatment he got is a befitting reply.

DONT speak, if you mean it then DO IT!

Yup, very true. I also started having respect for him. Before this I used to think him to be like a spoilt brat. There are very few Pakistani players whom I like (Wasim Akram and Saeed Anwar are the only guys I guess) and now I think I might add Afridi also to the list

Wonder how SL captain will take it. Maybe he will start crying and blasting his chuckers for not having CHUCKED well enough.

Indians will restore the glory to cricket. And punish the chuckers. That will be a gift to game of cricket.

Die chuckes die.
ROFL, seriously, I would also love to see the Lankans biting the dust. I was so disappointed yesterday when the Kiwis lost to them. Somehow I just don't like them at all.

brilliant team effort, go team india go.
sehwag surely laid a brilliant foundation which they again could not use to its full potential.
sachin is getting younger with each game, he doesn't get older he just gets better.

even the bowling and fielding has really come up good, lankans wont hold out to this firepower.

also i feel that misbah did deserve the MOM award, he really contributed to the indian win by making sure that the score board stayed put and he fired only when it was made sure that the indians were through to the finals.

He just had to wear the blue uniform didn't he ? Looked like he was playing for India . 260 was in no way bad score. Agreed the way Sehwag was going 300 + was inevitable but 260 is not less for a team batting second.

Arrright, the real celebration will begin after the formalities in the final.
We cannot go wrong. The cup is ours.

Congratulations Team India and all the best for the grand finale.

Team Pakistan, you got a new supporter in me from last night, not because of the dropped catches but because of the bowling skill and sportsman spirit you displayed.

What a match! Fit for a semifinal. Munaf and Ashish justified their selection, finally!!
MSD sure will be relieved.

Next stop Lankans. They have had home advantage and home pitch in the QF and SF. They looked impeccable, but not to forget the fact that the opposition was also weak.
Team India are on a different level altogether. Looking at the performance yesterday, Lankans are surely going to get crushed. Hopefully!!!

Sachin should get his hundredth ton in the final. Will be a perfect jewel in the crown.

It was fantastic win! One more match away from glory!. But what happened afterwards is really shame. Celebrations , festive atmosphere went till late night! But thats not the issue. It is how you celebrate. I saw crowd dancing in street with Tricolor. But booze being sprayed! It just insult to that tricolor! I saw police doing nothing all these happening!

It just sad when we see our national flag gets insulted in the name of celebration!

Great win!!!!! congrats to India.

But did anyone see what MISBAH was doing
He did not try to do any thing than blocking lollypops. Perhaps Rehman Mallick was not all wrong???

Amazing win yesterday. Munaf patel's interview was by far the cutest.
Siddhu: Aap naraz the aapko nayi ball di gayi thi.
Munaf: Nai paaji aisa kuch nai hai, hume koi bhi ball dedo hum to phek denge

I did mention earlier in the forum and to my colleagues Dhoni's gamble might just pay off and it did and in a big way.

Especially for those minds who keep blabbering crap that "every time sachin scores a century India loses" please get click on the below link and get your stats right.

Well Sachin has a 69% win record against his centuries, so its still 31% for odds and you can not take a chance in World cup SF and more which is against Pak . So no one is complaining, and we don't want to see Sachin scoring a ton with a cat's life( cat has 9 life they say, Sachin had 6 yesterday). So Keep those 31% for Pak, and its time for 69% to come.

I'm pasting these stats which I recieved as a forward.
I want the 100th 100 in the final when we lift the cup.


When many people say how many of Sachin's hundreds have come for a winning cause, here is analysis of each of those centuries he scored when INDIA lost and reason why it went in vain.
Sachin Tendulkar gets to yet another century but India end up on the losing side - How many times have we seen that?
While there would be the Tendulkar bashers and critics who say that India lose a match whenever Sachin scores a century, the statistics prove otherwise.

Out of the 48 hundreds, We won 33 , Tied 1, Draw 1. And we lost only 13.
Those 13 were :-
1. 137 off 137 (Strike rate 100) balls Vs SriLanka at Delhi in 1996 World Cup.
India scored 271/3 in 50 overs. The only other 50 score was from Azhar. SL made 272 in 48.4 overs. Manoj Prabhakar had 4-0-47-0. He also opened in the innings and scored 7 of 36 balls.
2. 100 of 111 Balls Vs Pak in Singapore - Apr 96.
India 226 all out in 47.1 overs, When Sachin was out score was 186/4. Pak had a reduced target of 187 from 33 overs.
3. 110 of 138 Balls (Slower but...) vs Sri Lanka In Colombo - Aug 96
Again India 226 for 5 in 50 overs, Only other 50 score from Azhar (58 of 99 balls !!!). Sachin has also bowled 6-0-29-1, the second most economical bowler and the only wicket taker (SL were 230/1 in 44.2 ) of the match next to Srinath. Seven bowlers were used by Azhar.
4. 143 of 131 Balls (!!!) Vs Aus at Sharjah, Apr 1998
This was chasing under lights. The qualifying match before the final. The whole world knows about this match. Still one interesting point, when Sachin was out India were 242 at 5 at 43 overs. Target was 276 in 46. Still India finished at 250/5 scoring just 8 of the next 3 overs.
5. 101 of 140 Balls against SL at Sharjah , Oct 2000.
Indian score was 224/8 in 50 overs. (No other 50 score). SL got 225/5 in 43..5, Sachin also bowled 5-0-22-0, better economy rate than everyone except Srinath.
6. 146 of 153 Balls against Zimbabwe at Jodhpur , December 2000
India made 283 / 8 in 50 overs. Sachin was the last man to be dismissed, score was 235/8 at 46.3 overs when he was out. Agarkar and Zaheer Khan propelled India to 283 in the last 3.3 overs.
When Sachin has scored 146 of 235 in 46.3 overs, you can guess what the other 8 great batsmen were doing against the World class Zimbabwe attack. Second Highest scorer was Zaheer Khan with 32.
Zim got 284/9 in 49.5 overs. Kumble bowled the last over. Sachin also got 6-0-35-1
7. 101 of 129 Balls Vs SA at Johannesburg , Oct 2001
India got 279/5 in 50, Ganguly made 127 of 126 balls. When Ganguly got out, the score was 193-1 in 35.2 overs. Sachin was the last man to get out at 263. SA got 280 in 48.4 overs. Sachin bowled 9-0-51-0, second best in economy rate next only to Agarkar (10-0-45-1)
8. 141 of 135 balls Vs Pak at Rawalpindi, March 2004.
India were chasing 329 and were 317 all out in 48.4 overs, 8 balls to spare.. No other batsman made even a 50 (when chasing 300 ) and when Sachin was out, India were 245-4 in 38.4 overs. They needed 85 from 68 balls with 6 wickets in hand.
9. 123 of 130 Balls Vs Pak at Ahmedabad, April 2005.
India made 315/6 in 48 overs (48 over match), again no other 50 score. Second highest was Dhoni 47 of 64 balls, (third highest was extras - 39). Pak made 319 in 48 overs. The three quicks (Balaji, Nehra and Khan went for 188 runs from 26 overs between them taking only 2 wickets). Sachin bowled 6-0-36-1. No Harbhajan and no Kumble.
10. 100 of 113 Balls Vs Pak at Peshawar, Feb-2006.
India were 328 all out in 49.4 overs. Pathan and Dhoni got 60 each. When Sachin was out when India were 305-5 in 45 overs. Managed only 23 in the last five overs. Pak scored 311/7 in 47 overs and won by D/L method. Could have been anybody's game. Sachin did not bowl.
11. 141* of 148 Balls Vs WI , Malaysia.
India made 309 /5 in 50 overs. Sachin was not out. Pathan was the only other 50 scorer. WI made 141/2 in 20 overs and won by D/L method. Again could have been anybody's game.
12. 175 of 141 Balls vs Australia at Hyderabad, 5th Nov 2009.
India needed 351 to win. And at the End, lost by 3 Runs. Spare a thought for Sachin Tendulkar. He seemed to have done everything possible but didn't last the final lap. Only Raina scored along with himÖmade 59Öand other Players just Enjoyed Sachinís batting.
13. 111 of 101 Balls Vs South Africa at Nagpur , 12th March 2011.
India were 267/1 and at the end all out for 296. When Sachin got out after scoring 111, India only managed to score 30 Runs with lost of 9 Wickets.
This Proved how good Sachinís hundreds were! Hope people will stop laughing now.
In other 35 Instances , We won 33 , Tied 1, Draw 1.
Just to add to this fact...he already has 14 scores in '90s... Many of which has resulted in an Indian victory.
If we look at the centuries scored by Sachin while chasing are better then the others.
Below is the list of players scoring centuries while chasing :
SACHIN --> HAS DONE IT --> 14 times
PONTING --> HAS DONE IT --> 08 times
LARA --> HAS DONE IT --> 07 times
INZAMAM --> HAS DONE IT --> 03 times
Sir Viv.RICHARDS --> HAS DONE IT --> 03 times
DRAVID --> HAS DONE IT --> 02 times
Now , let us see what Sachin has done for India's cause when he has gone past 50 but not a ton. Out of the 93 times Sachin Tendulkar has scored a fifty, India have secured 56 wins while ending up on the losing side 35 times. Two games were without the Result. Digging deeper, India has won 28 times whenever Sachin has scored between 70 to 99.
Who has scored the maximum number of tons in winning causes for their respective teams.
Sachinís critics will have their mouths tightly shut because the master tops the chart with most number of tons resulting in a team's win. Most of the time he stayed unbeaten.
Sachin : 33 Hundreds --> 13 times he was Unbeaten.
Ponting : 25 Hundreds --> 8 times he was Unbeaten.
Jayasuriya : 24 Hundreds --> 5 times he was Unbeaten.
Ganguly :18 Hundreds --> 10 times he was Unbeaten.
Hope everyone will understand Sachins stats and hopefully the worth of Sachin's 100's would not be discussed again.
To people for whom the above stats are not enough then SACHIN's...
*** 21 years of cricket is not Enough...??
*** 48 tons aint Enough...??
*** 33 TONS in WON-Matches ain't Enough...??
*** 14 TONS in WON-Matches "while-chasing" isnít Enough....??
I am a Sachin FanÖ.

yeah, that was very humble of him

everybody thought Dhoni made a mistake by getting Nehra in, but he proved everyone wrong. not only did Nehra take a couple of wickets, he saved a few runs on the field. MSD knows something we don't!

regarding Misbah, i wonder why he stopped taking singles even when he had the chance to. he just stood there. weird!
