Oh, and my cousin inquired about tickets...apparently he was quoted $5000 US for three decent, not great tickets.
Yup, with three zeros.
Hope this stadium got fire marshall approval, must for a semi in India
For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
I didn't think the final was in Mohali.

I really hate this attitude that the India-Pakistan game is more important than the final. It's not. Winning the world cup is what counts. India's 100% record against Pakistan in world cups really doesn't mean much given that most of those games weren't important.
It's not more important than winning the WC, but I won't deny that it's a pretty awesome record to have, especially when you consider that Pakistan have historically had the more talented and balanced teams.

Indopak games lost their novelty after those series of games we played during 2004-2006. India-Aus is where its at these days.
There will always be intensity between Pak-India matches.And whatever part of that intensity was taken off during the 2004-06 matches is now back stronger than ever because we haven't played each other in a while and also because of the recent political tensions between the two countries.
As exciting as Australia-India may be,it doesn't measure up to Pakistan-India.Nothing does in Cricket IMO.Ask people on either side of the border who they would want to play and beat in a WC final,and most of them would respond would the neighboring country's name.

Actually the matches between 2004-2006 were not that good also because the main Pakistan strength (their bowling) had lost much of its bite. Also they played each other too much during that time
The Mohali stadium is just 50 m from my house, but pity I will not be able to see the match. I had put my name in lottery of tickets but did not get them .
As said this is mother of all matches, it will have more following that Finals. The Winners would be Hero's and the loosers will have loads of abuses in their country.
I am too scared to even watch this match. I hope India wins on path to winning the world cup
