Great victory by the Indian Cricket Team in the soil of Australia

4th of March will be written with golden words in all history books that have a mention of Indian cricket! Reason? India had won a one day tournament for the first time on Aussie Soil.

I was very unlucky as I was not able to witness the match. I had to come to the office. Though some time I was looking at the scorecard. The match was very thrilling.

India batted first and our master blaster Sachin palyed a very vital knock of 91 in the 2nd final. I have to say that he played a winning knock in Sydney (117 not out) and helped India to take a lead in the 3 match final. But there was no other way except to win as world’s best captain told before the finals that “Who will win the first match also win the 2nd match and there will be no necessity of playing the 3rd final. And I know which team will do this”. So India did exactly what Ponting (Remember the best captain) said.Here are some of the exiting moments from the match:

1) Harbhajan yet again took the wicket of Symonds (one of his friends, is he!! )

2) In the 2nd innings a streaker came on the field. Symonds hit the man with his body and the person fell down. Though Symonds was freed from any penalty!!

The last over was too exciting. Australia needed 13 runs in 6 balls. Pathan was asked to bowl the last over. And he stood to his captain’s expectation. He showed the maturity of a 35 year old even though he he is just 23. Pathan took 2 wickets in the last over and at last India won the match. The match was set for a tight finish and it was indeed a tight finish.

Wow!!! Such an exciting match!

Three cheers for India. Hip hip hurrah!!!! Hip hip hurrah !!!! Hip hip hurrah !!!!

Man of the match (2nd final ): Pravin Kumar ( 10 wickets in the series in 5 matches with two man of the match awards)

Man of series: Nathan Bracken ( 18 wickets )
