This could have been the game to end all games.
But Pakistan were clever, whether it be the water, prisoners or Kashmir, they knew a polite loss was better for them.
Some will doubt this, they’ll think that Pakistan were just not good enough.
The truth is the Pakistan government sent in two diplomats in their middle order, and they did their job to cool the contest down so much that by the end there would be no problems.
This was disappointing to me.
To the sickos who like that sort of peace and hand holding stuff, this was a victory.
To me this game lacked the sort of hyperbolic anger I was hoping for.
Sure Sehwag preached quickly, Sachin’s innings was slapstick, and the Pakistan innings had a buried alive kind of feel, but it didn’t feel that explosive.
For Indian fans, they don’t care how they got there, as long as they do.
For Pakistan fans, they’ve got more important things to think about, like whether Rehman Malik is watching them.
Malik is watching me right now.
He’s far more aggressive than the Pakistani batsmen.
