Twenty20 Thriller

Yuvraj Singh did it again - smashing Australia to all parts of the field, scoring 70 off just 30 balls. ICL, IPL, you name it - they are all going to make a lot of money; Twenty20 is now got the mileage in the sub-continent.

What more could these Cricket Merchants ask? India - Pakistan Twenty20 world cup final. Yes, they got it.

Australia are very good at executing a master plan; when it comes to quick improvisation (what is required in this abridged HIT game), Aussies are a bit behind.

Robin Uthappa walks forward, puts himself in a place from where he cannot play the rising delivery. All Aussie bowlers tried to bowl too straight and full at him. What that did was, Uthappa got going - giving Yuvi the required partnership.

Over the last decade and a half, only Warne and McGrath came across as thinking Aussie bowlers.

I think India won the game when they batted.

The mallu dude bowled well, RP Singh was excellent. Irfan Pathan took the valuable wicket of Symonds. Harbhajan Singh bowled a fantastic 18th over - taking a wicket and tightening the screws on Aussies.

As Ian Chappell would say, it was a wrong move to have taken the 'most pampered cricketer - Shane Watson' in the team. He broke down again, which meant poor Brad Haddin was forced to play as a batsman.

Aussie selectors should be kicked on the rear side too. How come they didn't pick Cameron White? He is a big hitter and bowls Twenty20 stuff - quick leg-breaks.

India are riding the Yuvi Tsunami - I am hoping they'll do well in the final against Pakistan.

Pakistan has been playing very well as a team; Geof Lawson is doing a great job.

I am backing India (BCCI XI) to win the tournament.
