Just incredible.

At some stage, I saw the required runs and I thought some one has to make a fifty off 20 balls. Not gonna happen!

Proved totally, completely wrong

He looked like he so frequently does in short format cricket, completely in control of what he was doing only with a lot more crunch to the shots.

Some player.

Ya, Hussey was great. Beyond belief. Damn him. :P

i WISH my dear Pakistan team had won........ i'm traumatized. they killed themselves before my eyes, like they seem to do a lot these days, but this time it was UNBELIEVABLE... i need a therapist probably... But it was a good match. Both sides fought well. At the end of the day, Australia was better!! Sad to admit, bt they deserve to win.. I hope someone fixes up the PCB and KIDNAPS Ijaz Butt, so talented players like Nazir and Tanvir will be able to join...also that Mohammad Irfan guy everyone keeps talking about......

and I wish they hadn't banned MoYo, Malik, and Younus Khan....leaving Afridi the only one left to pick from.......he's a great lovable player but they pressure of being a captain is not for him... IM so sad...

Husha, who would've thot Afridi nearly pulled it off. Younis as captain allowed Afridi the player to flourish. Afridi as captain, too busy posing for the cameras.

how similar was this to Dhoni's final assault on KXIP during the IPL... 48 of 18 was required then too i guess.. & the emotion the aussies & hussey showed after the match was also unseen just as dhoni's... Mr.Cricket learning from Mr.Cool?? also both teams wear yellow...

One of the all time great knocks in one of the all time great matches ! this was one for the books ! after ages , one got to see a quality to-the-finish semis...
@ Husha : your team fought like tigers - no one's rattled Oz in this WC like they did - Just for the sight of those fumbled byes and overthrows by Oz and those miserably tense faces in the dugout during their innings alone , the Pak team deserves everybody's thanks :) Nobody loves a unipolar superpower ...but then a result like this comes along to convince you why somebody is one !
Anyway , it was a freak ending and your team can hold their heads high
@ Anonymous - i know you're kidding so pls don't be so harsh on poor MSD , its not his fault that the Indian Pappu League is what it is , right ?
PS - you WERE kidding , weren't you ?

Let"s learn from english/Aus media - 2007 final was fixed because teams they didn't like were in it, they say. Let me be the first to plant this thought because 2 teams I don't like are in finals - it was all fixed to give fillip to cricket in eng/aus :-)

Also, pak lost a close match - how come no allegations of fixing yet? Because it was australia that won?

BK, those fumbled byes and overthrows by Oz were priceless. Long time no see. The result was the least of it, by then you could expect anything - i would've like to see Kamran Akmal bowl.

Raj, don't say...

Husha said...

He wasn't posing!

He was trying fit in the captain role by clapping and encouraging, but forgot the most important thing: THINK. Did you hear his post match speech??? :(

Come again, what did he say
