India Wins The Twenty 20 World Cup
Monday evening was the best cricket match I have witnessed in my life. It was a dream India Pakistan final for a World Cup Championship in which India ended up winning - even if it was only twenty overs a side. Congratulations to all the 'Boys in Blue'. I felt so proud when you guys did not choke and turned a match that could go any way into a win. You proved that the Indian team are tigers at both home and abroad, they are paper tigers no more !!!
I always had full faith in the Indian cricket team and their abilities. I supported them even after their shocking exit from the 2007 ICC World Cup. The reasons they failed at that time - such as selection politics, Sourav Ganguly, poor fielding and bad luck were not present in the Twenty 20 World Cup. This made them a confident team that was just destined to win. Mahendra Singh Dhoni was a real cool captain too, I liked the way he gave off his shirt to a young fan. That shirt is now is a valuable collectors item.
Here are some pictures of the winning moments and the celebrations afterwards-

This year, Diwali came early. After the match ended, I went to my balcony to set off some fireworks. Sadly, I tripped over my feet and banged my knee real bad while attempting to run away from the bombs I had just lit.
Did you watch this match? How was the experience ??
