Irony

Indian cricket team wins the 20-20 World Cup. The Big 3 - Sachin, Dravid and Ganguly weren't part of the team. The only chance of ever holding a cup thats anywhere close to the actual world cup just passed by. You are good err.. great, the 3 of you, just not "lucky".

Deepa,

I was just about to type something but Karthik had already posted it...

Karthik,
You stole the words from my mouth :)

No, that isn't the reason. Not including these 3 was part of the match fixing deal.

Oh come on, India and Pak in the Finals, and any of you doubt this wasn't a fixed tournament?! :)

I second karthik sriram's comment - India won because those old men weren't there to bungle with their experience, in particular one ex-boy wonder who's now a pain in the lower part of our anatomy, merely because of his presence. I can't really understand why some people don't prefer to quit when there's still some dignity left. Like Gavaskar once said, sportsmen should quit when people still ask, "Why?" instead of "why not?"

I too go along with the match-fixing theory. It looked so obvious - what would happen to Ponting's (Aussies) endorsements if Indians lost their interest in cricket?

On a serious (or is it lighter) note: What APJ Abdul Kalam predicted became true...

Which link were you referring to - the negative reviews on Fountainhead or the Atlas Shrugged link?

LKS, kezhabols a? Ada paavi!! Idhu blasphemy.
AP, ditto. And you not blogging these days?
Prakash, sabash, I like that twist I say. May I add another angle to it? The 3 aforementioned players refused to be a part of that deal and hence were left out.;-)
oracle, ennattha solla!! Plain unlucky.
TPI, ellam jealousy unakku ferrari illa nu.:-)
lavu, hero aacchey adhaan.
Thanks Anon for the info.
lavanya, I agree.
SK, yeah 2020 dream came true.:-) I meant the Fountainhead one.
