the final line-up...

Has anybody noticed that the teams at the bottom of the table, India, SL
and Zimbabwe managed to beat one semi-finalist each? :-) India beat Pakistan,
Zimbabwe beat England, and SL beat South Africa. Just shows that teams are
more balanced than ever before. In late seventies and early eighties, teams
like WI and Australia were almost invincible, but things have changed
drastically since then giving way to some exciting cricket as we have seen
in the present world cup. Also, all the former holders of the world cup
have been knocked out; so we should get ready to herald a new champion.:-)

Its no use saying which team was the most fortunate or unfortunate; let's
enjoy the game since we get world cup only once in four years. Personally,
I am hoping for a Pakistan vs South Africa final; latter, because they
deserve to be in the final. Their performance has been amazing, and Pakistan
because they are the only team from the sub-continent still in contention (we
all have biases :-)).
