I am so lucky to witness this miracle. After 24 years, India have won world cup, if somebody downplays the feat by saying its just T20 and not "proper cricket" - that person is being naive. One needs to know and think "cricket" to achieve something like this.
As per Cricinfo commentator, the shot from which Misbah got out was a bit too cute. When you need 6 from 4, that's not the shot one should pick. Another thing to note, Joginder's ball lacked pace and hence ball didn't cross the boundary; Joginder's lack of pace is criticized about, but this time it worked in our favor.
It was disheartening to see Sreesanth getting hit badly in one single over. He is a good bowler and I hope he will get better with experience.
All in all, good thing for us is that
- Team played like a team (no big guns) and
- Dhoni has got just the right start with his captaincy (which Ganguly and Tendulkar publicly supports). All the best to him.
How can we help Indian team win more matches? - Expect less from them :)
