Finally, there was a match of equals and something to cheer about in the WC-2007.
After so many soft matches, finally there was an even contest and CRICKET was the winner. England gave Sri Lanka run for their money. They fought back from the brink to come close to pulling a victory that would have made all the English Fans 'revert to some drinking binge'.
Hope Indian cricket team takes some lessons out of the English win. It was the 7th wicket pair of unknown players in the world of cricket who fought like there was no another day. And mind you there were no heroics, just simple basic cricket of accumulation of runs thru singles. One cannot digest the thought that India with the strongest batting line up put up such a dismal show against the same SL attack.
England would take many positives out of this game and SL must be sitting pretty with their chances of going thru to semi-finals have brightened.
Guys my 2 cents on the following line up for semis - Aus, SA, NZ and SL..
