Cricket is something that is a part of every individual's life, irrespective to weather your playing it or watching it. The game has this interesting factor, a suspense which is only revealed in the end. I'm finally done with my board exams and I thought I'd be over-loaded with stuff to do all summer but it surely doesn't seem that way! World Cup is the only thing thats got me going apart from time to time hang outs with friends.

World Cup 2011, India. There are two matches that I'll never forget. The first one was on 27th February 2011. Yes, One day before the mighty board exams started. England vs India. The match was just intense. The odds of the winner kept changing every second. Finally, the match ended in a draw. The game of cricket was so perfectly played there.. I couldn't get it off my head. My brother wasn't that happy but I really enjoyed that game. A good game of cricket is like watching a happy movie! Yes, I'm a movie buff too but we'll come back to that a little later! The second historic match in my opinion was 30th March, 2011-India vs Pakistan. Craziest match ever! The score was less but the fielding was done so beautifully. I was watching it with my friends first and then, the second innings with my dad at home, wearing my lucky T-shirt. Trust me! I wasn't the only one who was being all superstitious then. EVERYONE was praying! And then, we won.
It was like Diwali all again. Celebrations all over! India's now in the finals! I wasn't this happy on my birthday also. Its one of the most beautiful feeling ever. India hasn't won a world cup since 1983 and thats a very long time and now, we're just ONE step away! Sachin Tendulkar-Man of the match. He's amazing and we all know that.
Soo, 2nd April, 2011 is the most important day in every Indian and a cricket lover's life. Sri Lanka's quite good too.. So make sure you're out there supporting the team. I'm gonna wear my lucky T-shirt and the men in blue are gonna do it, just have faith in them.
And I know I'm gonna proudly say one day, "I was alive when India won the world cup!"
