I can't believe so many Amirkhans congratulating me and knowing about cricket. They tell me they read about it in papers or some other desi dude talked to them about it. There is more awareness than the last time. Nice.

A very good point indeed.

Well done, India.

Gawd blesses dhoni.

Tendulkar said the key to handling that pressure lay in focusing on individual performances. "Pressure and expectation are always there, we were thinking that as individuals we should perform our best. We were not thinking that if a bowler fails, others will take wickets like that; we wanted to do our individual best and perform as a team.

'Flawless' Dhoni praised in message from Obama
New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar and M S Dhoni got accolades from the US as its Ambassador Timothy J Roemer congratulated the Indian team for the World Cup victory on behalf of President Barack Obama on Monday.

Roemer congratulated Tendulkar for realising his wish of winning the World Cup for his country.

"We want to congratulate the magnificient decision-making of the Indian captain Dhoni, who was flawless in exercising great judgement," the envoy said here after meeting Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao.

"We congratulate the 'Kings of Cricket' for bringing back the Cup after 28 years," he said in a message on behalf of Obama.

Roemer said he himself wanted to visit the India Gate here to witness the mass celebrations over the Indian victory but was advised against it by his security staff in view of the traffic jams there.

Asked about cricket diplomacy between India and Pakistan, he said, "it looks like it had attraction, it had a very optimistic start."

Hailing the leaders of India and Pakistan for dialogue between the Home Secretaries and "more talks" scheduled to take place in April, Roemer said, "You have three things working at once in these talks. You have cricket diplomacy, you have the real substance and engagement on issues, which is critical and then you have the people-to-people ties. That is something which the US applauds."

He, however, added that the US "recognises that only India and Pakistan will determine the pace" of dialogue.

The US Ambassador also praised the Indian security forces and police for having "worked hard and tirelessly" to successfully conduct the event.

Another self goal by an Indian

Viewpoint: What the World Cup win means for India
By Suresh Menon

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-12954407

India are money-obsessed when they are not indulging in muscle-flexing and telling the world who is boss.

The equation between power and responsibility will have to be worked out if the cricketing world is not to be split along the lines of the haves and the have-nots.

England and Australia officially lost their power of veto in 1993, but India continue to exercise their unofficial veto thanks to their financial muscle.

The World Cup win is a great opportunity to move away from confrontation and towards greater co-operation.

Dhoni and his men have increased the power of the Indian administrators


Bloody gungadin :x

My last post about this....just angry at the self flagellation displayed by many Indians including those 2 idiots on cricinfo video series "Running between cricket" or whatever

I see deep chankian-ness here. the gungadin has instilled fear up the fat arses of the CA and ECB admins. He's told them, in a suitably quaky voice whose is the HMV. LOL. Such fartcles by themselves mean nothing but happily serve to remind certain hostile kirket boards the worl over who's top dog. Again.

After all, wasn't it a lovable oiropean who said "Its better to be feared than loved". eh?

Moments of sweet triumph

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/moments-of-sweet-triumph/771600/0

India vs West Indies, Lord’s, 1983: Gordon Greenidge’s ill-advised shouldering of arms, Kapil Dev’s 30-yard sprint to catch Viv Richards on the midwicket fence, and Jimmy Amarnath’s gleeful dash to grab the stumps at the end — images seared into the memory from repeated viewing every four years. Kapil’s Devils have their successors now, but the first time is always the sweetest.

India vs Pakistan, Melbourne, 1985: If ’83 was a bolt out of the blue, the World Championships of Cricket two years later showed that India could be a consistently brilliant ODI side. India won five out of five matches, downing Pakistan breezily in the final thanks to a three-for from leg spinner L. Sivaramakrishnan and a confident century stand from openers Ravi Shastri and Kris Srikkanth.

India vs England, Lord’s, 1986: Dilip Vengsarkar’s third successive hundred at Lord’s, unlike the other two, resulted in an India win. The Colonel’s 126 gave India a 47-run lead, before Kapil Dev and Maninder Singh ran through England’s second innings, leaving India just 134 to chase. Victory in the next Test at Leeds sealed India’s only away Test series win in the ’80s.


India vs Australia, Kolkata, 2001: After the largely forgettable ’90s, India’s slow ascent to Test match greatness began at the Eden Gardens, with the most astonishing comeback of all time. V. V. S. Laxman, Rahul Dravid and Harbhajan Singh would all become vital cogs in a machine that specialised in coming back from the dead, and Sourav Ganguly, in due course, would become India’s most successful Test captain.

India vs England, Leeds, 2003: The Holy Trinity’s greatest performance in concert — masterful self-denial from Rahul Dravid on day one followed by fireworks late on day two from Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. All three made hundreds, and India — having elected to bat on a green top — cantered to a series-levelling innings win.

India vs Pakistan, Multan, 2004: After shading a close one-day series 3-2, India won its first Test on Pakistani soil in 15 years in a brutally one-sided manner, thanks to Virender Sehwag’s one-of-a-kind genius. Sehwag’s 309, the first triple hundred by an Indian, set up an innings win, and provided ample glimpse of the man who would become India’s biggest game-changer over the next decade.

India vs Pakistan, Johannesburg, 2007: With close to zero experience in the shortest format, an experimental side skippered for the first time by M. S. Dhoni surprised everyone by winning the inaugural World T20, sparking the greatest revolution in cricket since Kerry Packer. Portentously, Gautam Gambhir top-scored in the final, a tense clash of arch-rivals.

India vs Australia, Perth, 2008: Ricky Ponting had emulated his predecessor Steve Waugh by leading Australia to 16 Test wins in a row, the last of which was an ill-tempered victory over Anil Kumble’s Indians at Sydney. India stormed back at Perth, with Irfan Pathan’s all-round display the highlight of an incredible team effort.

India vs South Africa, Durban, 2010: India’s seam attack had looked club-class in the first Test at Centurion, in a defeat that brought the team’s number one Test ranking into question. The return of Zaheer Khan changed everything — after his early wickets had helped the visitor gain a 74-run lead, all that remained was for V. V. S. Laxman to perform yet another second-innings high-wire act.

India vs Sri Lanka, Mumbai, 2011

Suresh Raina made off with that broken Gautam Gambhir's bat. He was the one who retrieved it from the field, and he was showing it for the cameras.
His expression and his body language when he departed with the bat from in front of the cameras was one of "This baby's mine".

I am sure that bat ended up in his kit, it will become part of the secret memorabilia that these guys all have - specially the younger ones.

Afridi retracts his remarks saying he is riled up by Gambhir's remark on mumbai attacks wrt Pakistan.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13HnOxBPW70


I like India and its people, was misquoted: Shahid Afridi

Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi has said that his controversial remarks about India have been taken out of context. In an exclusive interview to NDTV, Afridi said he actually loved India and its people, and he loves to play cricket here. He was quoted by Pakistani media as saying that Indians are 'not large-hearted.'
