Mahela, I thought u will pull us through !!!

I know enough has been written about the world cup dissapointment, but sadly I haven't got over it yet. It was a very bad day for us. It started with rain and a shortened game which suited the aussi style of power hitting. The ICC which is quickly turning out to be a joke, and is run by a bunch of idiots who are pass their sell by date, should have postphoned the game. It's a shame that the 100 overs was not played in a world cup final !!!!
We were at a huge disadvantage with the light deteriorating by the minute and the batsmen under pressure to stay on top of the duckworth lewis score. But yet we displayed courage and fought till the end. However credit should be given where it is due and I have to say Gillchrist played a one of a kind ininings.
I knew mahela from school days and people thought he would be playing for Sri Lanka when they saw him batting at under 13 level. I was in a match with Nalanda college at under 15 level. And Mahela single handedly took that game away from us. He was always a big game player and thought he would pull us through, just like in the semi finals. But a bad umpiring decesion ended all that.
I am looking forward to 2011!!!!
