Similarities between the 2 winning teams

As always it was really a good treat to watch IND Vs PAK cricket match on 24th sep 2007. And this time it has become even more special as both the rivals are meeting in the world cup final for the first time! The treat was expected the match went into the final over and INDIAN PLAYERS have once again played with the nerves of their fellow INDIANS!! but finally they managed to clinch the thriller.

4days after being crowned the title 'CHAMPIONS' still i can watch all the news channels telecasting those magical moments.Thats the impact it had on us.

I thought of bringing down few similarities between the two world cup winning teams from INDIA. (1) KAPIL DEVILS-1983 & (2) DHONI DEVILS-2007

Here are those....Hope no one have noticed it till now!!
1. Both the teams went in without the COACH and came home with the cup!!
Looks like Indians do well only when they don't have COACH!!
2. Both the teams batted first and successfully defended the score
In 1983 they made 183 batting first and bowled out WI for just 140 !! In2007 they made 159 and bowled out PAK for 154.
3. Both the teams were eliminated in the very first round of the earlier world cup !!
In 1979 world cup they were the last in their pool B there by not-qualifying to the next round.In 2007 world cup they again failed to move on to the next round!!
