Haha interesting story actually. I had a school cricket game that day. Took it as my responsibility to win my school the game, truly believing that it would lead to India winning the cup. And so it happened. I still remember padded up, waiting for my turn to bat at number 3. And everyone was on their cell phones trying to keep up with the live score. It was an amazing day. Came back and watched the entire match as my mom had recorded it for me. Despite it not being live, when Sreesanth took that last catch, my shirt came off as I started punching the air and running around the entire house.
But I still remember the most over the top, crazy I've been was when we came from behind and defeated Australia in the semi final. I was 16, young blood, hot headed, and a very strong hatred for the Australian cricket team. I still remember the scenes, I was out of control. Similar to how I was when Canada beat the US in last year's gold medal hockey game in overtime at the winter olympics.
Pretty much all that combined into one.
