Who will be the Twenty20 World Champion?

Will Dhoni and his boys do what a collective dream team of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid could never deliver in a lifetime?

Will Dhoni be the next captain after the ‘magnificient’ Kapil Dev to ever win any form of a World Cup Cricket tournament for India? Or will the situation go to the head and India flatter to deceive, as always? Will the millions of audience worldwide be treated to a mind blowing, pulsating, edge of the seat thriller? Well, lets leave that to time.

india and pakistan

Rival captains Shoaib Malik of Pakistan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni of India pose with the ICC World Twenty20 trophy. In the background is a statue of Nelson Mandela.

Its exactly at times like these that i miss being back at home in India with hot cups of steaming tea, pakoras (the greatest cricket maniac ever, my mom) and a cracker match on the telly. Meanwhile, India takes on Pakistan today for what is being billed as the ‘mother of all battles‘ to decide the winner of the Twenty-20 World Cup at Johannesburg, South Africa.

May God bless all the weak hearted cricket maniacs.
