A Different Game…

25 Apr

Watching Australia decimate their opponents in the World Cup brings to mind a quote from the TV series “Bodyline”. “We play cricket, they play something else” laments an elderly British gent as Bradman’s all conquering Australians destroy England. Another suggests “Couldn’t we ask them to use a smaller bat? Time to have those conversations again.

What’s most impressive about the Australians is that they’re not satisfied with being the best. They’re still working hard on their game, fielding and running hard and not slacking off. Yes, they may be boorish but their relentless focus and discipline make them model professional athletes.

Sri Lanka is a sentimental favorite and I hope they beat Australia in the final but if I were a betting man, I’d have to go with the Australians.

    Aditya right on the money. What they did to the South Africans was scary.

    I, for one, am hoping that atleast the finals will be a match worth-watching! 🙂

    There seems no chance for the Lankans.
    Aussies are invincible!!
