Everyone said that the weather in Lahore is not appropriate for cricket and it has now come true. Frankly, I don't like weather having a say in cricket. No doubt Pakistan had made a huge total of 679 for 7 declared, I am sure our team would have earned a Draw, if not a win. If their batsmen can make run on that lahore pitch, I am sure our batsmen can do better and have the capability to make 680. And then if the match is drawn, I'll be satisfied.
Anyways, I have no contact with god and I can't fight the weather. So lets just hope the match restarts soon and we see another Sehwag special, who is currently batting on 96 off 89 balls out of which 80 runs have been made by fours. Giving him company is our captain Rahul Dravid with his usual self making a SOLID 37 off 84 balls. Team India is yet to loose a wicket as they have made 145 off 28 overs at 5.18 runs/over.
With the hope that the match will restart soon, here's some more cricket news that may catch your fancy -
1) As Backstreet Boys have sung - "I may run and hide when you are screaming my name... but let me tell you now there are prices for fame", it has again happened to Sachin Tendulkar when two Pakistani security men allowed there relatives to meet the legend and get autographs. I am sure Tendulkar would have loved to give what the fans were looking for, but the cost can be little too much!! The story -
2) 537 Indian reach Gadaffi statium to cheer for Team India. Isn't that a very small number when Pakistani officials promised 8000 something??
3) Here's something that may help you if you are't having Tensports at home. Airtel is offering Live commentory for India vs pakistan series. Sms alerts are also available, just at for 99 rupees. Sounds good offer to me!!
4) This one is not related to India Pakistan series but if you are interested in knowing how reverse swing is done, try this. Although I'll prefer a Pakistani teaching me that special art, still an english man's work is worth trying!!
