Three and done! March 23, 2007

Despite a brilliant knock by the master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, India crashed to defeat against a brilliant Sri Lankan team. When India restricted Sri Lanka to a total of 254/6 in the allotted 50 overs, it seemed like the formidable Indian batting line up would get the job done. India was very much in the chase as long as the master blaster, possibly playing in his last World Cup match was at the crease. Sachin was at the crease for a total of five minutes , faced three balls and scored 0 runs with 0 fours and 0 sixes, none of which is a World Record. His exit resulted in a familiar sight for Indian fans with the rest of the team collapsing. While India’s World Cup campaign is all but over, a positive for the team was their “brilliant” performance against Bermuda, a formidable opponent. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Indian team told the media that the two matches were fixed and that players of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were paid a lot of money to beat India.

“India was very much in the chase as long as the master blaster, possibly playing in his last World Cup match was at the crease. ”

India was in the chase even after Tendulkar departed. I don’t think India relies on Sachin’s batting anymore! There were days when Sachin used to single-handedly guide India to victory. But those days are long gone.

I think it was after Dravid’s sad demise that everybody got ready for India’s funeral procession!

Overall, I am relieved that India is out of the WC. Saves me a lot of time and energy. Phew!

Sorry, small typo-

“I think it was after Dravid’s sad demise that everybody got ready for India’s funeral procession!”

It should read as:
I think it was after Dravid’s sad demise that got everybody ready for India’s funeral procession!

Dravid can not be a captain it would be rediciulous. It needs to be Dhoni.
