    yeah I went a bit out of character when RPS ripped out Pollocks leg stump. Excellent stuff from India, really chuffed from todays performance... just need to sort out the extras and we should give the Ausies a decent game!

    Well, what can I say? Congratulations to all the semi finalists and I have now decided to officially stop watching cricket.















    Well, maybe just until next time.

    Has anyone ever considered the fact that SA might lose games of cricket simply because we aren't so good?

    Sorry, when you had to only make 126 to qualify and you don't, then it's a choke.

    Man I was going insane, esp. when RP Singh clean bowled Pollock I went running around the house screaming at the top of my lungs. But seriously talk now all the critics who kept saying India would lose. And who the **** said India doesn't have good fielding with the youngsters in the team? Our fielding AND bowling AND batting was a million times better than RSA's. So talk now all you critics who doubted India!

    AND BRING IT ON AUSTRALIA BRING IT ON, WE"LL WOOP YOU JUST LIKE WE WOOPED RSA TODAY!

    And every NZL fan who wished India would lose, get down on your knees and thank us. We saved your asses! Our brilliance saved your asses.

    CHAKKKK DEEE INDIAAAAA !

    Brilliant again.. good to see them fight like that.
    What can i say.. we couldn't even go mad and run around the house... i was at friends place and his parents were sleeping so couldn't make too much noise so it was all about fist punching for us and whispering.
    Sharma's run out and Karthick's catch were just out of this world.
    Another team performance... RP singh you beauty.

    I feel sorry for Saf how were they expected to go through unbeaten when everyone else had their hiccups? some cruel cruel luck or is it the draw is flawed clearly It should come down to who beat who and not the run rate.

    Normally it does come down to who beat who but NZ beat India, SA beat NZ and India beat SA. And since SA lost by the biggest margin out off all those losses it's only fair enough that India and NZ go through.

    Yea I don't see how it's unfair to SA, they had a lowered target (the lowered part was reward for winning previous games) that they had to reach to stay in the tournament and they failed to reach it. India knew they had to win, they did it. Australia knew they had to win the last game in both stages, they did it. It would have been unfair to NZ if NZ would have ended up going out because India and SA ended up just doing enough to go through.

    This is choking at best. SA not only got 15 wides but a total of 25 extras and 2 more overs to bat, yet they couldn't reach 126 ?

    Kemp, Morkel, Philander and Der Wath threw their wickets.

    I am glad someone said that. I must confess I was surprised. Surprised thatSouth Africa failed to make the runs and even more surprised at how easy it finally became for India.

    One player does not make a team. India did not include Sachin (for whatever reason) too but dropping Kallis shows how badly South Africa miscalculated. Kallis may have been out first ball but...and Philander was an embarassment.

    I was also amazed at Smith's body language during India's innings. He was alternating between 'mad rage and screaming' and 'philosophical resignation and smiling'. Not a good sign in a crisis.

    India were no that much the better side but they surely seemed to believe they were and that showed and that is what finally mattered.

    As much as I am happy,I am quite skeptical about India's chances because I just cant quite remember when last time we won 3 consecutive matches.Add to that cant remember when last time India beat Aus. But this Indian team doesn't look their usual selves so you never know.And special mention to Dhoni,he's been brilliant as captain. Also hoping the final should be either Ind-Pak or NZ-Aus.
    P.S. : AA should play in place of Joginder.He's better. (Just carrying out my duties as member of the ever weak AAAS)
