Just got back from a club where exuberant Indian fans erupted in a spasm of joy as they watched India win it!! There was a tense moment just before the final bat that put them over the top.... but they came through!!!! Anyone got any spare tickets for Mohali??????!!
The excitement has been electric today. All across India, in shops, offices, schools and homes, the cheers and groans of cricket fans watching the World Cup has been impossible to miss! India was favored by a lot of bookies to win, given that they were playing at home, surrounded by wildly enthusiastic Indian fans... Never mind the fact that they hadn't beat Australia in a World Cup match since 1987! This time, the payoff is even more exciting... India will face Pakistan in the semi-finals in Mohali, in the Indian state of Punjab... Balle balle!!
