Some funny ironies in the WC 2011 ystdy......Mahilya got his team mate run out so he could keep the strike and prlby hit big shots but what happed was Mihilya kept taking one runs and completed his century and the new player took some grt hits......some really gd fours and sixes adding another 30+ In Sri Lankas total which probly would have not been possible.....and Lankans would have been restricted to 220 or so. Indians players.....batting/chasing time :)Everyone probly thought that Sachin will make his 100th century in the WC. I think probably he also thought the same :D but that did not happen as Sewag lost his wicket in the 1st over followed by Sachin in to the same bowler with an edge. ( though I still thing Sewag got a edge to the bat with that LBW apppeal not going in his favor )Gautam really took the entire pressure in since at that time he was pretty much the opener fr India as India had already lost 2 wickets the whole crowd just went "SHANT" lol also I thought when Sachin was out I thought India will lose their best WC chance. I did close my TV set fr some though :D and then Dhoni came I thought he will go oout with 10 runs or an LBW as he hasnt been in the form that much and on top of that Malinga's boweling so weird its almost as if he his hitting the player with the ball than boweling.. He even manged to break Gambhirs Bat with his yocker :rofl:...IDK how ICC is allowing this though......but these 2 batsmen stepped up to the challenge and saved indias ASS :rofl:eek:ffc.......Virat Kholi and Yuvi did their part well :)In the boweling Dept. in 2003 Ashish's Nehra's out of form boweling was done by Shreshanth this time :rofl: ironically both were replaced also for each other lol In 2003 Sachin was the man of tournament but couldn't hold the cup........this time he gets the cup but looses man of tournament to YUVi :D

An awesome victory.Inspite of losing big wickets early they made it look so damn simple!

Unfortunately some people just cant help being racist - From Andy Zaltzman - Good the writer tried to put in a humorous way

" The wild communal jubilation on the streets around the Wankhede was mostly in exuberant good nature. One man scooting past in a crowded car, however, leaned out of the window and shouted at me: “Go home, white man, go home.”
I do not like to jump to negative conclusions about people, and am unwilling to suggest that his comment was more than 60 years late, so I am prepared to accept that he was an employee of the airline company I am flying back to Britain with today, who had hunted me down on the packed streets of Mumbai to give me a verbal flight reminder. For which I am eternally grateful."

Someway or the other, when India won, no 1 wud have missed that moment for sure......Even people who are least interested in cricket, wud have seen that, just coz the nation was at the verge of achieving something big.Average TRP may show some figures, but the peak at the time of winning moments wud be really very high. I dont think it wud be 21.6 as the article states......

Peak was when India faced Pakistan
Every news channel almost said one thing. This match could be most watched
match ever with a TRP (Television viewer-ship rating point) of 40 beating the
yet another India-Pakistan world cup encounter in 2003 which had a TRP rating of
32.45.

No, not 2003......i am asking about the recent SF. U have quoted an "Approximate" TRP figure for that as well.
