Cricket mania

UPDATE: India enters semifinals after beating South Africa in their home ground.. looking forward to the semi finals against the Aussies... (keeping my fingers crossed..Hope they enter the finals and win the championship :) )



I was over the phone with my friend when he reminded about the ICC 20-20 world cup. I switched on the T.V. just in time to catch the spectacular batting by Yuvraj singh..He was jus' way too good... six sixers in an over... Im jus' in awe.... to say the least..Jus' hoping India plays well and gets to the next level.... :)

With this power packed performance Yuvraj Singh becomes the fastest person to get 50 runs in 20-20 world cup from 12 balls ..( 3 fours and 6 sixers)... WOW..He also became the first batsman to hit six sixers in 20-20 world cup and the second, after Herschelle Gibbs, in one-dayers. Hats off to Yuvraj...

@ Drama diva

Cricket is an interesting sport,its jus' that it takes a long time to complete..

Ya, in India the game is more or like a religion..You can even see small kids holding a bat almost their size... :D
