All credit to me because I kept my eyes averted the whole time. Everybody around me was going crazy but did I even peek? No. Send me gifts:
With Misbah on strike, Pakistan needed 13 from the final over. After a great deal of thought, Mahendra Singh Dhoni gambled on the inexperienced Joginder Sharma. When he started with a wide, Indian fans groaned, and the situation became even more desperate when Misbah pummelled a full toss miles over long-off for six. But with victory in his grasp, his judgement failed him. Moving across his stumps, he went for the scoop down to fine leg. He didn’t connect cleanly, and millions on the subcontinent held their breath as Sreesanth came under the ball at short fine leg. When he held it, the stadium erupted.
I hope all the idiots who were tossing molotov cocktails at cricketers’ homes in India and Pakistan just a few months ago after another World Cup are thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
