Worth It !!

Took the day off from college to watch the second final in the CB series between India and Australia. I'm not the kind of guy who bunks college to watch a cricket match, but then this match was extra special after India's win in the first final, they really looked like they were going to wrap it up in Brisbane today. And they actually 'did' complete the series win today, so it was worth it - me staying home.

Today's match went about like a masala bollywood thriller ( 2 streakers pitched in for the masala part) and that made it even more worth it. And the happy ending at the end made it totally totally worth it.

This series win kinda announces the arrival of MSD's ODI team into the big boys blub ( Australia and South Africa ) and they'll no longer be called 'flukes' ( did someone call them that ? .. well 'I' did and this victory has shut me up for good(?) ) or Soap cricket specialists ( T20 that is ..)

This match was the last for the 'great' Adam Gilchrist and the 'not-so-great' (j/k) Bradley Hogg. They would've wanted to end their career with a win, but that was not to be. But then, they were just outplayed straight in the last two matches. It does not make a big difference anyways, like Gilchrist said 'it was not much of a fairy tale ending today, but I sure had a fairy tale career' ( da' man' rocks..)

That is pretty much all .. No more cricketing action till the IPL begins..

Got to get back to classes tomorrow :( .. Depressing.

BTW did i tell ya ' Sachin Rocks'.

Cheers.

I wish we call Australia for the third finals(maybe a 'bet' match) and win that too. And maybe Kullan can hit a century this time. Unlucky him.
