    As soon as India passed 200, it didn't look like Pakistan could do it. When Afridi got out, it was clear that India was going to win.

    Pakistan are one of the worst bottlers when chasing. Fuck you

    Waking up at 3 AM for India - Pakistan was completely worth it! Our bowlers really won it for us, it was a very good, strategic game. Unlucky for Pakistan that they couldn't get Tendulkar out. Riaz bowled very well for Pakistan, too. On to the finals!!!

    Stupid appeal against Tendulkar. Fuck you If they hadn't appealed it, Pakistan could have won. Sad

    Probably could have, yes. To be honest, Pakistan shot themselves in the foot, I really thought the game was theirs to lose after India's innings. Especially when players like Yuvraj went out on 0, Kohli went for 9 and Dhoni went for just 25. You could say we were lucky, but our bowlers bowled very tactically and very well.

    The odds are always against Pakistan when they're chasing those kinds of totals. We were lucky Wahab Riaz had the best bowling game of his career today; Umar Gul sucked. Fuck you It could easily have been 300 if the first few overs were anything to go by for India.

    Yeah, Sehwag was thrashing Gul. Something like 8 overs for 69 runs? Ouch. If Riaz didn't play a blinder, then we'd probably reach 300 something. Better luck next time, my friend.

    Laughing Well, if you support India, losing to us would look better, and you would come in 3rd place, right? I completely understand if you want to mess with the family, though, it's probably something I'd do Laughing

    Actually, I win either way. If India win, I can celebrate because I'm part Indian. But if Sri Lanka win, I can mess with them more. cheers

    Laughing True. Hmm if I were you, I'd support India because it was a great game. Being on the losing side must have been so tough, but it was a great effort from both teams.

    And also because India are awesome shifty

    It was annoying when Misbah decided to start hitting boundaries right at the end. Gave me a false sense of hope for the last three overs. Laughing

    I almost spat over my mates phone (we were at school, so we were checking on his phone) when he hit the six. Laughing

    That's exactly what I said, too! Where was that the last 10+ overs?!?! It would have surely been a much tighter game. But hey, I can't complain silent

    I had class at 9, when Pakistan was batting, and during that class, both Razzaq and (I think) Akmal got out and I was trying so hard not to make a sound, I was just having this silent fit of happiness. It sucks living in the US, nobody cares about cricket and not many people care about football, either Sad

    I was sitting in my driver's ed class texting my friend who has a 3G phone. Laughing We only do bookwork in DE, so we texted back and forth quite a lot. It's not normally something I'd do TBF. Laughing

    After that class, we had advisory together, so we sat there checking Cricinfo. Laughing

    Laughing it's okay, I remember driver's ed being really boring. I know driving is serious and all but I feel like they make it sound so hard. It's easy as hell to drive.

    We're going to lose in the final anyway. Luckily there aren't too many Indian fans to wind me up when that does happen.

    The underdogs are the ones who shouldn't be nervous. The favorites are the ones with all the pressure on them.
