I guess it ain’t a breaking news for you to know that India beat Australia in Common Wealth Bank series final and clinched the historic series win over the one day world champions. Australian players were just not good enough for Indian team at all. They only know how to speak all rubbish on and off the field. Indians just told them how the cricket is to be played and what world champions really are. Once could have been luck or fortune. But Indians won best of three finals by 2-0, third game of course not required. 🙂 So they proved that this was not a fluke. Matthew Hayden and Andrew Symmonds definitely have lessons to learn. So does Ricky Ponting. For once they thought that they were Kings of cricket. How cruel, how wrong they were doing to themselves. Huh?
Anyways, Indians clinched the series, proving that Australians, even if they are world champions does not mean that they are invincible. Let’s see the Jubilant Indian Cricket team. 🙂
This had been a very pleasing moment. So many youngsters in the team gives you the feeling that you will see many many coming years of success for Indian cricket team. However, i cannot end this post without mentioning about the great brave man, the great spinner, Harbhajan Singh. Ahh, he has been such a brave person. Aussies gave him lot of troubles. They put him so many controversies, with Andrew Symonds, Matthew Hayden and Ponting and party. And to lot of etent, the Australian media and people also. Harbhajan was never found guilty, rightly so. Aussies just wanted to make something out of nothing, as usual and this time Harbhajan was the one targetted. Anyways, Harbhajan took it bravely, he handled whole of the situation very very well. He played so well the whole series. The best of him came out with this unnecessary added pressure. Harbhajan really played very very well and his emotions came out just at winning the final. That was the right moment. Aussies’ mouth were all shut. No one could speak a thing. That’s the best way to answer. Go to Bhajji 🙂
Some great moment of jubilant Harbhajan Singh…
Some other players also emerged from Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team such as young and lethal Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar, Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Robin Utthappa and many more. Ofcourse there were greats like Sachin Tendulkar, the God of cricket. 🙂 And MS Dhoni of course a great aggressive captain. No problems if Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan were little off sometimes in series, but they are still great assets.
Okay…enough of disgrace brought by Ricky Ponting and his team to Australian Cricket. And enough of praise for Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni‘s team. There is just one case that most do not know about. There were three instances where nude streakers came into field while the match was being played. Once it so happened that nude streaker, saving himself from security personnels, running nto field, came right in front of Andrew Symmonds while he was standing at the non striker end. And Andrew taking out his frustration, just knocked down the streaker with his shoulder, in the rugby style. Everyone enjoyed the knockout. But few know that how serious mistake Symmonds made. If the umpires decide to bring this matter up, then Andrew Symmonds can be banned from 5 test matches or 10 one day internationals to a lifetime ban. Wow. That would be such a wonderful insult to Symmonds. Poor he, taking all his frustrations out on that bloody streaker. Ha Ha. Let’s have a look at this incident. Sorry about little nudity….
India definitely deserved the win. They outplayed Aussies in every department whether it be batting or bowling or fielding.
I personally felt that Ricky Ponting and his team should have publicly apologized to Harbhajan Singh and all the rubbish they did in this series. And also that Ricky Ponting should have announced his leaving the captaincy. He is really not good enough to lead his side. In fact he is not even good enough to lead any side. He is a disgrace to the word captain.
Umm.. Brad Hogg, congrats on retirement. You did fairly good job in your career. Adam Gilchrist, you were a great cricketer. A great wicket keeper. A great person. Cricket world will miss you. Congrats on your retirement as well. God bless you.
Okay, i am tired of writing my reviews. I really wanted to take it out on Australian Cricket team. I just couldn’t stop myself. It was such a great match 🙂
