    Well played, India. I have to say that it is rather satisfying to see the back of Australia so early in a knock out tournament.

    India vs Pak is going to be a cracker.

    I guess you're right about the rest too. Such a pity though. He was a much better bowler than the figures suggest IMO. Even in tests I remember some seriously fiery spells where he went wicketless. Was their best bowler in the WC by far.

    I'm so very happy right now. Our superstar batting line up really came through for us. Dhoni is in poor form and Sehwag is injured but the excellence of the others more than accounted for it. Tendulkar, Gambhir and Yuvraj were excellent. The run out and Kohli's dismissal were inexcusable though, we cannot afford to throw wickets away like that.

    As for the bowling, Ashwin was good and Harbhajan was solid other than the last over but bloody hell, Yuvraj was superb. He really has become more than a handy bowler in the right conditions. He is flighting the ball like a pro. As for the seam bowlers, it is great to see Zaheer succeed as it is clear that hard work has gone into him perfecting the new knuckle ball that he has. Munaf Patel appears dead weight though, he needs a performance in the semi-final, he has bowled fine, just a few too many loose deliveries. He is a very small way away from ending up with good figures, just too many boundary balls.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Awesome win indeed for us. Really thought we had bottled it when Dhoni got out but Yuvi was immense. Raina, I have been a big supporter of him and just when I thought he wasn't worth it he comes up with an awesome performance. How can I hate a guy who gives his 120% and is so talented.

    Well Cameron White is no Symonds or Watson, that's for sure. What an incredibly disappointing World Cup for him.

    And I still can't believe we had a player in hot form the way Hopes has been for the past 3 months and yet we leave him and his experience at home for Hastings.

    England 1979 is the only one (WI won). Sri Lanka co-hosted the tournament in 1996 but I don't think the final was there.

    Yeah, he didn't appeal for it at all, just shrugged his shoulders straight away. Can't give him any stick for that.

    Got back to 60-40 India with Dhoni's wicket. Admit it, which Indian fans were crapping themselves at that point?
    I must admit... I did not think Raina would last more than few overs against the quick bowlers. He played one decent pull shot and than Australian fast bowlers stopped bowling short to him. Watson bowled a good one later on and Raina had no idea how to play that. I was a bit surprised they didn't pepper him with more short balls...

    Raina played well though... Kudos to him. I'm rather glad now that he was playing and not yosuf...
    What an exciting match.... India nearly ****ed it up but Yuvi saved the day.
    I have a new found respect for Yuvi and the way he is playing in this wold cup... Indian batting lineup looks so much more dangerous with Yuvi batting well.

    Looking forward to Pakistan match.... Promises to be a cracker.

    You get the feeling if you can restrict his leg side scoring opportunities he will struggle to score fluently, played a nice cover drive for four, but mostly just excellent at working to ball towards the leg side.

    . Well done India, you guys played the better cricket. It looks like I'm going to have to grow up in an era of some dire Australian cricket. If only I was born a few years earlier so I could of enjoyed the mid 2000's ect.

    Ponting's century the only relief for me.

    Go Pakistan!
