The day of the underdog

Cricket is a game of glorious uncertainities. And this fact shone through brightly on St Patrick's day with the two underdogs, Bangladesh and Ireland putting up courageous performances to upstage India and Pakistan.

This means India treads in troubled waters; they just have to beat Sri Lanka and Bermuda to progress. Pakistan is knocked out. Sad, for these two teams have some of the most exciting cricketers in world cricket. But the events on the cricket pitch drove home the point that talent alone wont take you the distance. Application will.

Leaving aside the murky reminiscences, lets toast the glorious uncertainities of the game and congratulate the worthy winners, Bangladesh and Ireland.
