Guys... what a day it has been in the WC 2007
Bangladesh beat India by 5 wickets a stunner... if you can't believe what you are reading then you won't believe the next line
PAKISTAN ARE OUT OF WC 2007...IRELAND have beaten PAKISTAN and they have crashed out of WC 2007 in the first round...
It was the day when the 'minows' of the WC-2007 threw the statistics out of the window and proved that on a given day they can be menancing too.
The body language that Indian players showed on the field completely showed their lack of application and spirit to put up a good fight. The way Zaheer Khan was plastered by the young turk from Bangladesh must have been a rewind to 2003 Wanderers final. In such tough games, you need to pull off 'blinders' and 'half-chances'. Unfortunately, it was not to be and India were left stunned by a great batting display by 'school children'. After the defeat in hands of Bangladesh, hope some sanity prevails thru the minds of 'think-tank' and drop 'virubhai' for the next matches.
Rameez Raja claims heads are going to roll in the Pakistan Team after their defeat... and why not in Indian team..
Pakistan Team must be cursing their luck..they were undone by a team which fought like there was no another day. Ireland team may not have hoped for a better St Patrick Day celebrations. Pakistan were going great at almost 4-5 runs an over and suddenly the 'winds' changed the direction. The batting went from north to south in just couple of minutes.
It is going to be very difficult for Pakistan and India to digest their defeats, while Bangladesh and Ireland will be dancing till the 'rooster crows' again in morning.
Read in one of the pages...a team from the sub-continent would lift the cup..is it going to be 'bangladesh'...In 83' it was India who were the under-dogs, 92' it was Pakistan who came from nowhere to lift the cup and in 96' it was the Lankans who dazzled the world.
Mind you guys...the coach of Bangladesh team is none other than Dave Whatmore who was the coach of the Sri-Lankan team in 96' WC....
Cricket is a game of uncertainties...anything can happen...March 23 will decide the fate of 2 strong contenders from the sub-continent...
