I asked India for a favour but they made Bravo spit on my face. Disgruntled with the Indians, I made my way across the town to the English dressing room and entreated them to win at least one of their remaining two games.
What do you know, they promptly sounded the death knell for the Indians’ campaign and fast tracked the Proteas progress to the semis. (Didn’t want the proteas fate to be decided by the mood swings of the Indians at any cost, especially since what happened the last time around)
Mickey Arthur went on record the next day saying they were disappointed for being robbed off the chance to return India the favour. Very funny Mickey, here I was thinking you would be shivering at the sight of RP and co for what they did previously.
Having resurrected their own campaign, I was once again hopeful of the English knocking out the Windies. But alas, rain and D/L put those hopes to rest. The English were valiant but they were also foolish. They knew that rain was only a matter of time and D/L would certainly come into the picture. So why bat first for Christ’s sake?
They did that because of the way they were able to defend against the Indians. The Indians, therefore, have already taken their revenge for their defeat.
p.s:- Should I do that over-by-over blogging thing for tonight’s match? I personally liked it even though it ruins some part of the joys of the leisureliness involved in watching a match.
