Congratulations to my Team India on a successful hunt after 28 years!. Over-all it was a good show of cricket from all Asian teams, including Bangladesh. Its never easy to live upto the hopes of many a million fans in these countries where cricket is their second religion. I think we can all hold our heads high for brilliant performances throughout this series. Looking forward to see everyone in IPL (will sadly miss our Pakistani brothers there).

Sreesanth is one lucky son of a gun. He played T20 finals, India won that, now he joins for CWC final and yet again, India end up as winners - against all odds!!!!(losing Sehwag and Tendulkar so cheaply). Having said that, I strongly feel that it is Dhoni's fault for not setting attacking field for Sree, knowing very well that he is a wicket taking bowler and not a run container like Munaf. Anyways, all that ends well (Indian win ofc) ends well. Happy for Team India and mostly for Sachin the lone warrior who carried our hopes for so long. Fitting tribute for him

Interesting. India didn't win just the matches Tendulkar scored 100s.

This is a close match and luck and nerves are going to play a major role. India playing on home ground has an advantage -- and with less than 100 to with and wickets intact, it would be a surprise if they managed to throw it all away.

if these two can put on another 50 runs partnership in 10 overs or so india has a very good chance. would put the pressure right back on the lankans !!
