My Sporty Weekend

Spent the day switching between sports channels - the teams I supported did'nt do too badly though.

1. Hockey - watched India beat New Zealand 3-2 for the bronze medal at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Kuala Lumpur. India finally got a medal after 5 years. The sardar from Chandigarh Dynamos played well and also that guy Hari who put in two majestic goals. In the finals, Holland gave Australia a taste of their own medicine by thrashing them 6-2.

2. Formula One, Canadian Grand Prix - Schumacher qualified in 5th, had a bad start and was running in 8th. Luck favoured him, and due to the safety car coming out twice, he managed the second place on the podium. Alonso, of course won again.....yawn.

3. Football - England vs Ecquador. David Beckham bent the ball into the goal silencing his British critics. However, the Portugal vs Netherlands game was more entertaining mainly for the pushing and tripping on the field - in which 4 players were sent off.

4. Cricket, 3rd Test in the West Indies - Brian Lara did not force India to follow on even though India were all out with 20 more runs needed. Harbhajan Singh's four 4's in an over at the end of the innings were quite surprising - too bad Munaf Patel got out at the other end.


  1. Well the weekend ahead looks a promising one with 4 quarter finals, the final test match between India and WI and Wimbledon on!
