Just another sunday. I woke this morning wondering what must be the result of the finals between australia Vs. Sri lanka. I saw match till 3:00am later when it rained my eyes were closing so thought lets watch one over later found sangakara & jayasurya got out who were playing astonishing stokes all across the sabina park in barbados match was really going exciting unless the rest of the 2007 world cup. I thought even as it was still drizling australia will definately win with duck lewis rule. I was not that patients or rather in mood to watch australia win another world cup , infact third in a row.

Like we always say & hear during cricket coversation or in most the sporting events "LET THE BEST TEAM WIN", i have really great respect for australia this team doing incredibly sensational from last 3 world and winning it as well. Not to forget even in the 1996 world cup they were playing finals against the same roaring lankans. With the likes of the greats like skipper arjuana ranathunga, arvinda de'silva & roshan mahanama, gurusingha, little kalluwitherena. I have thought many times to stop watching crickets matches infact when we lost in 2003 world cup, even that time was not atall impressive but somehow we reached into finals, perhaps kind of accidently as i can say.
