ICC CWC'11: Match 22: India vs. Ireland: Rote pit-te jeet hi gaye

Sometimes I wonder whether it comes naturally to India or do they do it intentionally! Winning in the most difficult circumstances and losing in the easiest. Today was the amongst the most boring batting performances by India in the recent past. Were they nervous? I don't know, But something was seriously wrong.

Anyway thanks to Yuvraj's 5 wicket haul and 50 India won even after Piyush Chawla's brilliant effort at 'playing himself out of the team'.

ICC CWC'11: Match 15: England vs. Ireland: Ireland have won their World Cup

Well well well... India vs Pakistan, NZ vs Australia, Pakistan vs Bangladesh... and now England vs. Ireland. It seems that next door neighbours make good competitors. 

Kevin O'Brien's magnificent record breaking century (the fastest in WC history) helped Ireland set the record for the highest run chase ever in WC history. And on top of it the opposition was their next-door neighbour England. Ireland, it seems, have won themselves their World Cup!
