I just saw the quarter final match in the ICC world cup between India and Australia. I was amazed that India didn’t loose this one. Maybe Australia lost its edge. I don’t know. For me it looked like on 80% of the time Australia seemed to be on top. In this match too, I saw Indian batsmen throwing their wicket away. But seems that the prayers of one billion people does seems to have an effect.
Finally about Ricky Ponting – he batted superbly for his century and fielded brilliantly. He deserved to be the man of the match – but instead they gave it to Yuvraj Singh who ran out Gautam Gambhir (well he did get a half century and 2 wickets but it didn’t seem to match Pontings innings..)
