    My heartiest love and kisses to Team Blue for defeating 5 time world champs (and defending champs) Team Yellow. It gave vibrations of a Night Shyamalan twist in a Manmohan Desai classic. Magnificent to see saffron spirit on fire like we saw a few minutes back. From the depths of despair a new life was infused into Indian cricket. It looked like a mighty army of dead resurrected from the grave, like how old Big B jumped out of hospital bed to fight 100 villains in Sooryavansham....only this time there were 11 Big Bs. I myself citizen Gollum wrote India off after they were beaten at home by Australia-Z who back then were literally dead and buried, but then spectacularly revived themselves like Team Imhotep in Mummy. Imagine losing 3 games on a trot at home where prey became predator in a classic role reversal epic. To me today India simply rose like Dumbledore's Phoenix and Kohli was like a Norse commander leading his troops to glory, Dhoni was an Egyptian God and Dhawan the Greek hero...there covered the 3 main civilizations in Age of Mythology 2012 version It once again proved that when Indian spirit blazes at its zenith only Majid's lantern burns brighter. It was like lion chasing deer, snake chasing rodent, shark hunting salmon, eagle in pursuit of hare, ED raiding Vadra, myself raiding my fridge on weekend night. Tiny little Hobbits pulled down Sauron of the cricket world. To me the best ever resurrection in cricket history. To summarize the match: Rohit: artistry at its supreme height with rubber wrists maneuvering the field like how we maneuver Rajasthani Thali Dhawan: poetry in motion like a pianist in complete control of the keys and inspiration coming from the gentle autumn breeze Kohli: mathematician, physicist, poet, engineer, doctor, lawyer, trader, teacher, lover and MMA fighter rolled into one Pandya: a perfect combination of Mozart's mind in Hulk's body Dhoni: an aging boxer landing them hard blows like sledgehammer on a cute kitten, taking the fans back in time when he reigned supreme Rahul: an atom bomb in a fish pond, a gymnast's mind in a panther's body on the field Bumrah: a cannon with the precision of a neurosurgeon, a ballistic missile fired with the grace of a ballet dancer Kuldeep: a painter using the pitch as a canvas to pay tribute to Da Vinci Chahal: like a wizard indulging in the dark arts while hapless batsmen look in bewilderment Bhuvi: unexpected thunderstorm mowing down the opponent camp blending the artistry of Picasso, genius of Kasparov and bravery of a Gurkha soldier Jadhav: why the * was he there? A great day for cricket, humanity, community, society and piety. It was tragic to see the once great hunters reduced to prey at home turf earlier this year. But now by felling the most powerful force in the cricket universe who knows even India may feel Majid Majid Majid a month later.

    A team that has lost all world cup games against India giving tribute to an army that has lost all its wars. How fitting.

    Pakistan team

    Guy who is still playing 80’s cricket Guy who goes after everything, scores big and then has 5 **** games Good player, could be a bit more aggressive Guy with multiple botched surgeries who’s crap in the field, at his best will get 50 and give away his wicket Captain who can’t keep, can’t bat and is in great shape...the shape of a potato Senior citizen who is only in the side due to his bowling which will get banned again in no time at all Can’t field, is a spinner who doesn’t spin it and is a hard hitter who can’t hit the ball Good leggy, good fielder but **** with the bat for a guy who bats at 8 Not sure what’s worse his celebration or his pace Mediocre bowler whose made a career out of a spell he bowled to an ageing Watson where he didn’t even get the wicket A convicted felon whose stats are crap but is still around for some *ing reason

    Found it. Here is the article and below extract - http://www.thecricketmonthly.com/story/1055869/the-fly-in-the-ointment The highlights reel spins its way to Bridgetown 1989, where Shastri was at the receiving end of one of the greatest sledges ever. It was on a venomous Kensington Oval track, against an attack led by Malcolm Marshall, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh, abetted by Ian Bishop, the most recent addition to the overstocked arsenal of brutal pace. Facing a 56-run deficit in the first innings, Shastri came out to bat with India 0 for 1 (Sidhu). Marshall, in the midst of a masterclass in the lethal beauty that is true pace, produced a ripper that bored into Shastri's groin. The fielders crowded around Shastri as he writhed on the ground. Desmond Haynes bent low and, in a voice of infinite concern, said "Ravi, that girl you were to date tonight, can I have her number? You are no use to her now, maan!"

    NZ v India washout.

    I have started simulating matches to see chances for each team's Semifinal probabilities. Note that there are way too many matches still to be played, so I had to cut down the number of simulations to something manageable. So, I have basically assumed that Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka won't be beating any other teams (except themselves if they have remaining matches). I have also not taken into account future rain-abandoned matches. If things change, future simulations will account for all past results. So, here is where we stand right now (as of Aus vs Pak) ... probabilities after running 32,768 win-loss simulations. Let me know if this has been useful or utter waste of time. I've very much enjoyed doing this as it statistically gives a better view of Semifinal matches. --- If India win tomorrow, here will be the outlook: ---- If NewZealand win tomorrow, here will be the outlook: --- Since this is England, how about the outlook if the NZ vs IND match is abandoned: After tomorrow's Ind-v-NewZealand match, I will simulate future scenarios. Basically, South Africa is pretty much eliminated. Pakistan's outlook is also pretty bad as they would be fighting against WestIndies and the top teams (India, Australia, England, and NewZealand). NewZealand's position isn't as good as their current records, because their schedule is back-heavy as they've beaten weaker teams so far.

    Atrocious umpire. Was trigger happy raising his finger at any appeal by the Aussie bowlers. It was good they had the DRS so Gayle could review. The first caught behind could be excusable for the umpire. But the next ball and the lbw review. That was on the 7th stump FFS. No way you can give that out. And then the huge no ball before Gayle got out. The ball he got out on would have been a free hit. This umpires ass should be in the jackpot.

    Memes of India's win over Pakistan

    I request all my fellow ICFers to post whatever memes they find on internet regarding the win over Hamdullahs. Here is one that I found.

    Was the "tribute" meant for their actual army or their unofficial army that lost a few trees this year?

    So how to stop Amir on sunday?

    We'll have a RAW agent slip some jamaal gota in his breakfast on the day of the game so that he literally starts sh!tting his pants during the match. Simple.

    Good win Team India

    Great win today. Whole team chipped jn. Every team has to eventually play everyone but looking at our starting schedule, many felt that India starts their campaign with 4 tough opponents - Saf, Aus, NZ and Pak. Beating South Africa and Australia, we couldn’t have asked for anything better.

    Ganguly’s commentary sounds something like this The other commie- Dhoni is a great cricketer Ganguly- when I was captain I spotted him, backed him, gave him confidence and groomed him The other commie- Great length by Bumrah Ganguly- When I was captain, I introduced pace bowling and this length to Indian cricket The other commie- The weather is beautiful today Ganguly- When I was captain, we had special strategy to handle such weather
