Vox Flopuli

They say cricket is bigger than movies as far as entertainment goes... and a combination of both would be double the fun... so it shouldnt really be a surprise when it became difficult to choose which was more entertaining... the match itself or the panel of extra innings - mandira "i cant talk but i can shock" bedi, navjyot "oh i can talk" sidhu, geoffrey "i can talk if that idiot sidhu shuts up" boycott et al... and if those caricatures werent enough, we had celebrities dropping in - Abhishek "dads shadow is a cool place to hang out" Bachchan, Aishwarya "i am about to be AB too" Rai, to promote Doom Too...
But sadly, if you were the kind who were betting on India (in a purely non scam sort of way) it would have been a sad day yesterday... for now, the blue billion can turn green when someone else tales the trophy... in the end none of the hoohaa could do it.. and yet again we end up saying "Who? Ha! India, Yeah Yeah India"... for, barring a betting spree, not even a billion people can swing matches if the 11 men dont decide to think, bat, bowl and field...
until next time, feeling blue?

I never expected india to win against australia, its too unrealistic. Anju Jain's commentary on doordarshan was good and bearable, unlike sidhu and mandira whom I muted whenever i switched to set max.

My husband's watching cricket as we speak - presumably NZ playing someone but I'm a bit out of touch so I'm not really sure. I actually just stopped by to say thanks for visiting my blog again. I appreciate it.
