Bang Bang Begining

Cricket world cup 2011 has just begun and the men in Blue have started in style. After the 2007 world cup debacle, this was like the 'revenge of the fallen' ! and the revenge indeed is sweet !

Sehwag did exactly what he said before the tournament begun.. he said that he wants to spend all 50 overs at the crease and he almost did so. Good for the team.

Anyway.. the purpose of writing this is to post something very interesting that happened a week back. A day before I returned to Hyderabad (approx 10days back), I was chatting with Nikhil, a good friend of mine, over the office communicator. His predictions are mostly fluke but they sometimes turn out to be bang on ! The topic slowly moved to world cup and I asked him to predict the score in the inaugural match between Ind and Ban ... below are his predictions...

India - 378/4 (50 overs)
Sehwag - 176

and today I wish I had copied that conversation ! damn.. he is again so close ...!! I watched the India innings at his place today afternoon and we both burst into laughter on many occasions thinking of the chat and predictions we made. He is like the Emraan Hashmi in Jannat !

Next match is against Eng and there is more than a week gap. Will ask him to predict that match... u all readers can 'bet' with his help. Good Luck !
