To my South African friends,

Hats off to your team, a marvelous display of professionalism,
cricketing spirit and gentlemanliness both on and off the field.
I must say that watching your team play is a sheer pleasure.
The never-say-die attitude showed again in the big partnership
for the 8th wicket between #9 and #10 batsmen, at a time when
most other countries would have given up. Your team is great,
and a solitary defeat does not in any way take away the praises
that your team deserves. My congrats to the South African fans
for having such talented and hard-working people in their
country's team. Nick Boje bowled really well,
to add to the likes of people like Cronje, Rhodes, DeVilliers,
Donald,Kirsten, Cullinan; all of whom are tremendous cricketers.

At the start of the titan cup final, I read a shirt saying
'India vs South Africa: mission impossible', while at the end
there was something like: 'We love you South Africa but can't let you win'.
Well you may win(20) or lose(1) but I am sure your team will keep
producing some of the finest quality players on land. Thanks again
for giving such cricketing pleasure to cricket fans all over the globe.
