That was an absolute fantastic match, the way Jadeja batted and ripped appart Younis, the way India bowled and the gallant fightback by Pakistan.
Unfortunately i don't have many fond memories of that WC, India lost to SL in the semis (even though Ind was fav's) but losing to SL was no shame, it was the attitude of the home crowd (SL played were pelted with stones and water bottles) that was a real disgrace.
