Just 3 more games from lifting the World Cup… #TeamIndia. Can we do it again!?
Business end of the tournament now, one loss and you’re OUT! 6 out of 6…great stuff from Team India! It’s time now to start again. The Quarter, Semi’s and the Finals are here… 3 more games. How far can we go? We surely are good enough to reach the finals. Surely!!!
To begin with…all the talk that India did not stand a chance due to our poor bowling resources and to top it all the pitches in Australia and New Zealand…BUT what a transformation from our team. Must hand it to them, they have played some absolutely out of their skins cricket. Beating Pakistan of course made every Indian proud…but defeating South Africa was sweet nonetheless. Wouldn’t like to say much about playing the less known teams in the tournament like Ireland or Zimbabwe, though must say they challenged our team. West Indies of course posed a different kind of challenge, made our batsman hop a little on the WACA pitch at Perth.
As much as I was excited about the Cricket World Cup 2015, I missed the opening ceremony…damn! Nevertheless, I have watched each and every Indian match and cheered them on. GO INDIA!
The Quarters and the way the teams are stacked against each other…look interesting with;
Sri Lanka vs South Africa…though I love the special talent of ABD of S.A, I’d still say I’d want Sri Lanka to win this clash… Go Lions! …and besides South Africa are known to be chokers! Another World Cup choke won’t really hurt them!
New Zealand vs West Indies… I want to go with the black caps here, leading from the front ~ their captain… plays fearless cricket. West Indies on the other hand is more about Chris Gayle… he doesn’t do well… and that’s the match really… though they have ‘good’ other players. NZ will take this one easy!
Australia vs Pakistan… I would have to go with Australia, but with Pakistan, one really does not know which Pakistan team will turn up on the field … but I would love to see Pakistan pull this off. If they do… we could have an India/Pakistan semi or better still a final…now wouldn’t that be a mouth-watering encounter?
…and lastly India vs Bangladesh… INDIA SURELY! No 2 ways about it!
Wishing our Indian Cricket Team all the best ahead…just another 3 games more.
