Convenient Cricket Weather

When Ricky Ponting brutally quoted “South Africans are chokers”, Smith, the South African captain was right royally annoyed, however yesterday his team came close to prove Ponting’s theory. South Africa won by 1 wicket, thanks to lady luck. Malinga wiped the tail with some accurate bowling, while Murali also had good spell picking up very important wickets. Malinga’s hairdo still looks like as though he had a fight with his hair dresser halfway and the hair dresser walked away. At the end of the day, Sri Lanka lost the game, thanks to pitiable batting display especially in the final 10 of the innings. I wish the Lankan captain bats and stands up to his yap. Else they would soon take the path of their neighbor. Ponting also rubbed 10 spoons of salt and 2 table spoons of chili powder on few deep wounds - I quote from his interview on CNN-IBN - “India and Pakistan are not fit to be the super eights”. I have never respected Ponting opinion in the past, however this time I am forced to agree. I have started to believe that he is speaking from position of power. It is for the teams to proving him wrong. WI was as pathetic as before and surrendered quickly to the Aussies. I have not seen a world cup with empty stands even when the home team is playing. Where are the cricket loving Caribbean fans gone?

Have a great weekend of cricket, Ausrtalia taking on Bangala!....Best of luck or Best of Duck - Time will tell.
