@Venkat Raman: If the tables had been turned and India had had a stumping go against them, had 5 overthrows or had a sketchy boundary decision, I am sure you would have not talked about those things. I'm sure you would have "manned up" shown a lot of maturity. (Somehow, I think I'm mistaken)
Jonathan Harris-Bass - overthrows, boundary rope pushed back, stumping of bell - seriously? As an England fan, you have every right to be disappointed. But, please don't waste our time on the Cricinfo huddle, you could talk about that with your friends at a bar. 20 runs required of 15 balls with two set batsmen in scoring at more than a run a ball and 5 wickets on hand- it was England's game to loose and they did. They choked! It was a good game, great finish a and congratulations to India to have held their nerve. Now, man up and accept that India were the better side today and probably the best in the tournament.
just my quick opinion to this panel... heard Indian batting line up were praised through out the tournament, as they were doing brilliant. but when they come to final with England they couldn't perform as they used to be. Please do not compare this 20 over final match with a 50 over batting style. Best example is Dhoni's shot, if it was a 50 over match then definitely no chance for those type of shots. So don't give all credit to English boilers. Today's whole credit goes to Dhonis tactics... Definitely the best captain in the world at the moment.
what a fantastic moment. please do not compare today's Indian batting with a 50 over match, as heard a comment that England's super boiling tightened Indian batting line. I am 100% sure that if this match were a 50 over then their entire battle style will b different. also don't even think that Dhoni will go for that shot which he did today just because of 20 over match.
