i just finished watching cricket world cup match between india and west indies and i feel so good that i am writing a post on it.
i started watching it only once i had come from office and when i saw star cricket showing live cricket i got curious. this is womens cricket! i said and started watching.
India had batted first and made 285. quite impressive i said. west indies had batted for 14 overs and had already lost 3 wickets for under 50 runs. aah, we have won already i said.
then i went to loo for 15 minutes. please dont say - 15! minutes. yeah thats normal.
when i was back, miss dottin has just hit niranjana for a four. the commentator mentions that india had scored same score in as much over. what had happened in these 15 minutes i wondered. another boll and another 6. wow. admiration. next ball, niranjana gets miss dottin leg before the wicket. and she celebrated. smiles in the environment but a sense of loss. i wish i could see miss dottin bat some more. for the rest of the match, commentators (and sanjay manjrekar too, i like him better after hearing him in this match and post match presentation) keep mentioning the innings by miss dottin. even i am a fan now. more research on miss dottin will tell you that she has already hit a 100 off 38 balls. and she is just 21. respect miss dottin.
i also have become fans of all woman cricketers after hearing them in post match interviews. sanjay asks wi captain if she would like any change in her bowling side - she smiles and says no. mithali raj is good as well. niranjana is a fan of srishanth. and they all smile.
good job gals. i think i would go to firojshah kotla to watch them.
