India Australia 7th ODI

A forgettable series has come to an end with a consolation win engineered by the tail enders. It speaks volumes of the India's batting depth where a low score cannot be chased by the top order batsmen.

India-Pakistan Twenty20 Final Highlights

What a match!!!. It could've gone either way. Twenty20 is the curse of the 21st century for bowlers. BCCI has announced an award of 2Million dollars for the team and another $250k for Yuraj, plus a Porsche 911. The real test is on Sept 28th when Australia play India in Bangalore to begin the one day series.

Twenty20 India - Australia Semifinal

Incredible victory for the Indians. T20 is anybody's game. Lalit Modi announced an bonus of $1Million for the team and said he is gifting Yuvraj a Porsche 911. Not sure if that's his own money or the BCCI. ICL is sure having its effect on BCCI to loosen their purse strings.

Yuvraj 70/30. Brilliant batting.

Aussie wickets. Sreeshant was just brilliant and so was Bhajji and RP singh

Yuvraj 6 sixes of 6 balls

20-20 is bringing out some scintillating batting. England's Broad analysis 4-0-60-0. Incredible

Pathetic captaincy by Dravid to give Yuvraj the last over.

Mathew Hayden & Herschelle Gibbs Awarded Honarary Citizenship

Mathew Hayden and Herschelle Gibbs were honored for their performances in the recent world cup with honarary citizenship by the prime minister of St. Kitts And Mavis. Gibbs for his 6 sixes in an over and Hayden for the fastest World Cup century and the fastest century by an australian. Make of it what you will, even the players themselves looked surprised. The players can now park their big world-cup earnings on this tax haven :). Hasan Ali of Pune needs this honor. That way he can carry out the hawala trade legally

Its all over

As I went back in time I realised we had lost 4-0 to West Indies in W.I. I guess we didnt learn anything from it. Here's a song which probably illustrates the mood of the die-hard Indian fan.India theme song

I guess on days like this, Bollywood comes to the rescue. The film industry must be thanking "Team India" for wrapping up so quickly. Now they can release movies backlogged over the past month.

Its all OVER folks...
Good night and Good luck.

IBN report on the world cup loss. Srikkant calls the Indian performance "rubbish"

Manjrekar's Podcast report on CricInfo

As the Indian fans digest the news of India getting knocked out of the World cup, some people are hoping for a fixed match between Bermuda and Bangladesh. Their claim is that Bangladesh players will make more moolah from this fixed match then they ever did before. I hope the bookies who have bet on India suffer huge losses, since anyway their bet of India not reaching the Super-8 would have had very low odds. We do not want the world cup to be won over any more corpses. It is tragic enough that Woolmer was murdered. Once a genteman's game, now the game has become a circus for the media and a gambling pit for the bookies.
The first fallout of the knockout is that Chappel flying to Australia directly, The second I hope is that the stupid media in TV and print stop referring to India as "Men in Blue" or Team India. Its the Indian cricket team for god's sake. I also hope many of the Television companies who own rights suffer huge losses. The money bags have put controls on Cricket telecasting and deprived access to millions of cricket lovers in sub-continet. It is these cricket lovers who have made the game as popular as it is, so mr TV heads, "Dont bite the hand that feeds".
For the Indian team I hope they can spend some time in retrospection after they have wiped out the tears. After all the 2011 world cup is in the sub-continent. Our curators wouldve done a fine job to render any quality attack ineffective.
For one I hope mr Pawar, Niranjan Shah and the selection committee resign. Its a national disgrace to have such inept and incompetent people in management, while expecting wonders of the foot soldiers.

As for me, I'm rooting for the Lankans, I want Murali to win the world cup. He deserves it 1000000%

Irish Indian clay model animation cartoon

One of the best animation short clips I've seen in a long time.
"HORN OK PLEASE" follows a monotonous day in the life of an Indian taxi driver named Lucky. Lucky's goal is to earn enough rupees to buy the air-conditioned taxi of his dreams...

HORN OK PLEASE was produced in 2006 by Flickerpix Animations Ltd. in Belfast. It is a creative collaboration between animators from India and Northern Ireland.

This film is combination of stop-motion (clay) models and drawn, composited backgrounds. The whole film was shot on a NIKON D70 stills camera and post-produced in After Effects on a simple pc

India vs Bangaldesh, Pakistan vs Ireland

Bangladesh crush India by 5 wkts. Tahim Iqbal scores a blistering 51 and dashes hopes of any Indian victory.

India lost 5 wickets for 2 runs in the middle order.. Mammoth collapse

Pakistan knocked out of the world cup. The whole world cup schedule is in disarray since D1 is no longer Pakistan but could be West-Indies. Ireland could be D1. So the much awaited India-Pak match will not happen.. Wonder if India makes it to the super-8. My fingers are crossed
Here are some Pakistan highlights

Team names for the Super Eight stage are indicative based on the top two teams from the Group Stage qualifying. If these two teams do qualify they will be seeded in position 1 or 2 as specified regardless of whether they finish first or second in their group. For example, if South Africa wins Group A and Australia comes second, for the purposes of the Super Eights, South Africa will still be A2 and Australia will be A1. If, for example, Scotland qualifies instead of Australia, Scotland will become A1
