Shatter your dreams about India's best batting lineup....

Welcome to the reality. We lost bitterly to SL in the finals. If you like me, watched this tournament thoroughly, we were never in the picture to make it to the finals. We got into the finals thru' the backdoor by winning the match against SL with 4 runs. Pakistan played brilliant cricket thruout this tournament except for their shameful match against SL.

Winning & Losing the match is part of the game. We lost the World Cup and we lost couple of finals, but what is frustrating this time is the way we lost it.

Unanswerable questions which came to my mind are:

1. With 229 to chase, which is less than 5 per our, what was our gameplan?
2. With 2 early wickets, why we got into the shell and allowed Zoysa & Vaas dictate terms on our batsman?
3. What is Mr. Rahul "Wall" Dravid doing in this series except for few good performance against minnows ?
4. Except for the fielding & long time gone "NatWest" win, What is Mr. Kaif doing in the indian team?
5. When part time bowlers on our side itself dictated terms, is the Indian team haven't thought about the formidable spin bowling attack from SL in the later half of the day ?
6. What the fuck SACHIN thinks he is doing ?
7. Is he playing for his records or for his team?
8. Why we let the run rates climb steeply even the situation can be controlled with Yuvraj & Sachin on the crease?
9. Why is Sachin never spoke to their partners when they are struggling against the spin bowlers?
10. Why dont we for a change, change our opening pair to Zaheer Khan & Harbajan Singh.?
11. Are we good in paper, that we have the best batting line-up ?
12. What is Laxman, Dravid & Kaif wanted to do, by throwing their wkts in hands?
13. Are we slowing turning into a bowler friendly country from a batsman friendly team?

and last but not least, is that really true, that when Sachin plays, India fails.
