India Wins! Three cheers for Raina

Today India won the one-day cricket match against England which was played in my own backyard, oops I mean Faridabad - the place where I am presently residing. India required a modest total of 227 to win the match and they were going smoothly at 60 for no loss. Then as usual, disaster stuck - from 60/0 India went on to 92/5. No words can describe the poor cricket the top order batsmen played. At that time, I wondered whether India would reach even the 100 mark? But, it was only because of S.Raina's brilliant knock, along with the help of Dhoni, that India could win the match by 4 wickets.Inspite of the tremendous pressure Raina's performance was brilliant. Dhoni got Out just before finishing off the game, but nevertheless, he had already done his job.
The most heartening thing to see in the Indian team these days is that, there is some one or the other with a brilliant performance and the team is not dependent on just 2-3 players' performances, as it used to be the case earlier.
The fielding of Indians today was nothing to write about - too many dropped catches and missed chances.

I also wasn't able to see the match as such. I have to goto office :-((
But, we always keep ourselves updated about the score etc. through Internet.But, seeing the match in the stadium itself is altogether a different experience and totally fun.
Wah!WI is a very beautiful place, I think..
By the way - how were you able to know so soon that I had posted a new post on my blog? Is there any software available for that?
