For those who are following the WTC final

Team India has baffled me.

Everyone trolled the team for going to be crushed in the English seam conditions. The batsmen tried their best and hung around to make 217 expecting the Kiwis to rampage home with almost double the score. Now kiwis are done with 249. Both are done with their respective first innings.

The conditions were always alien to us. We played T2O IPL matches two months back and no competitive cricket. NZ played a test series with England and defeated them comfortably leading up to this WTC final. They brought 4 leading dangerous seamers and we took in 2 spinners whom we did not even bring out their full potential.

It has been hardwork-sheer determination and the will to not be crushed by opposing forces no matter what the reputation says. It’s all that matters. Team India to me can take a bow right now, no matter what the result of the match will ultimately be !

So relevant to us !

We are Indians. We work when our bum is on fire. Most of us are last minute people . But when are backs are pressed to the wall, we come with our best foot powering forward. Take a deep breath. Start from now, restart from now or dig from now, you ll see what miracles you can perform in the upcoming weeks.
