ICC World Cup 2011: The Last Stand

Soon the globe will shrink into one white ball. The race of life will follow a twenty feet long pitch. Enthusiasm will flow into a stadium to merge with the human sea. The cricket god will come out and embark on his journey to bless and calm the sea, with the charismatic gestures of his bat. Spells may be broken, but some might work. Life will then be known by another name: Cricket.

India will be transformed into a ritual of magic and passion, of cricket. There is nothing that can repel the magic; that can dispel the forces of this sportive madness. Indians love cricket, for it is one of their basic needs of any one born in this country, verged by sea on three sides, and the Himalayas, as the crown.

Let the sweat spill. Let the profane passion be unbridled. The time has shown itself on the gate of the fortress. Let us be prepared to cheer our warriors, for the battle is on its way. Let us remind ourselves that every Indian has one blood, like every game is played on a single pitch at a time. Be prepared.

Wishing Team India all the very best for their Final match in Mumbai.
