What at an exciting game of knockout matches happening at World Cup 2011. The Australian team was really floored by both Pakistan and India in consecutive matches. Each player acted responsibly and played a pre-defined plan to perfection.
Whether India wins the semi final match against Pakistan or not, the tournament has been given a momentum by the attitude of the attitude to win by those eight teams. They have already captured the hearts of millions of cricket fans, irrespective of whether they come from India, Pakistan, England, and Australia or wherever.
I hope Mahindra Singh Dhoni and Indian Team think tank take a final look at the non-performers before they go into the field for the match with Pakistan. By all means, Sreesanth deserves a chance to prove that it was a one-off day for him against Bangladesh. If Dhoni persists on sidelining him once again, it will be a demoralising factor for the player, who could come out with unplayable deliveries consecutively. Even if it does happen, for a player of his caliber, it will not be the end of the world. Looking forward to an interesting end to the World Cup.
