As many of you know here I am a very proud Indian fan, but I also know great Cricket when I see it.
Australia have been and IMHO still are a great side, winning 3 World Cup's on the bounce and reaching 4 finals in a row really is quite remarkable!
Ponting today showed what a champion batsman he is, and I hope that he is allowed to continue playing and can bow out on his terms, a legend like him deserves that chance!
I understand how you Australia fans must be feeling now! but even in defeat you have done yourselves proud today the way you made us work hard for every run!
No doubt you will be a tough side to beat in the next World Cup in your home patch!
In many ways it is a shame this was not the final! it was worthy of that billing! but I guess that is how the cookie crumbles!
