We must continue to look forward
This is primarilly about India, it's them I support but the same really applies to Pakistan. This final is a great thing, if India wins the WC it will be brilliant, especially having two huge rivals against each other in the final I can't wait, but especially if India win it I think it is vital that we push forward instead of trying to consolidate where we are. Winning twenty twenty is a good thing, but twenty twenty is a new format, it doesn't yet have the prestige of the other versions nor does it have the long term safety, I think it's very important that we don't become a country content with being the worlds best 20-20 side, when it has been demonstrated no more clearly than with Zimbabwe beating Australia, 20-20 is not as accurate a reflection of a teams quality than ODI or test cricket. Obviously winning 20-20 is better than loosing 20-20, but doesn't anyone else think that the fact we have peformed better without Sachin suggests it's not a true reflection on cricket? I don't know, I hope we win tommorow but I also am more eager to see how we do against the Australians in the odi series and even more importantly tests, I hope this gives us a huge mental boost which we ride off into the odi's but for me the beating England in the test series was the highlight of this year so far.
We must continue to look forward........
