yes...they've done it...

They shocked the whole nation by beating top teams like South Africa, England (to reach the semis) and beating the world champions Australia to reach the final where they faced Pakistan today.

Pakistan, on the other hand, beat every single nation they faced except India (where they lost in the bowl-out; 3-0) to reach the finals. The defeated the World Champions as well as other strong teams like New Zealand, whom they faced in the semis.

A match that no one dared to miss (not even me Embarrassed)...and historic match as the news channels call it...

With India done at 157/5 in 20 overs some might have thought that they didn't have much chances of winning...but the team proved all wrong....Kapil ji and Madan ji were right...They said if India manages to take couple of wickets with the first few overs then India has its chances...

Gautam Gambhir was the top scorer for India with 75 runs. Y Pathan also did well. He scored 15 runs in 8 balls which helped bring the average up a bit. (It was his debut match...and yes he is Irfan Pathan's brother). Yuvraj scored 14 off 19, Dhoni scored 6, Uthappa 8, I Pathan 3 and R Sharma 30.

RP Singh made it easier for india as he took 2 wickets within the first 5 overs. (akmal -0 and hafeez -1). J Sharma performed well as well taking wicket of Younis Khan -24 (caught by Y Pathan).

I Pathan takes the cake here...taking the wickets of the danger men Tongue...malik and afridi (caught by R Sharma and Sreesanth, respectively). Later he took the wicket of Arafat.

Sreesanth took Tanvir's wicket...but still Misbah was standing there..that was the wicket india needed badly, taken by J Sharma. 

RP Singh took another wicket near the end of Gul.

On the Pakistani side...Umar Gul was absolutely amazing today...he gave only 28 runs taking 3 wickets (Yuvraj, Dhoni and Gambhir). Tanvir took Uthappa's wicket while Asif took Y Pathan's.

Congratulations to both the teams for making it this far and India for winning. Big smile
