No Fluke

The 2nd ODI between India and Sri Lanka just got over. 123 was the target for India to chase. The bowlers, especially Pathan, did a good job to restrict the opponents to 122. Sachin was 70 not out. And more importantly, the strike rate was more than 100. Many anti-Sachin friends of mine said his 93 in the first ODI was a fluke. Some even said "After all, its against Sri Lanka and we are playing at home". Some people can never be satisfied, right?
I came to work this morning and constantly did alt+tab to check on the score. Sachin moved from 30s to 40s to 50s in no time. Only when JPYadav got out (lbw Muralitharan), did I realize I had been keeping track of just Sachin's score and not the team score. Well, I would have if the target had not been 123...I reconcile. Here's to Sachin...Cheers! Well done Team India. Its high-time you made us all happy.
