oh yeah and the other thing ... Pakistan NEVER have luck on their side in a crucial match and this really pisses me off. I mean tendulkars catch was a great one ... but what r the odds that he'd pull off a catch li ke that 1mm away from the boundary line !! If that had gone for 6 Pakistan i believe would have won the match ... oh well ...
At the end of the day India won, full stop. Good match though, the run out was good.

I dont actually beleive in the fixing theories going aound ... but they go summit like this. Apparently Indian and Pakistan collaborated to have India winning the ODIs as this version of the game is avidly watched in india and would raise the morale of the indian public, etc etc n e way Pakistan would then take the test series as this would significantly boost their ratings closer to the aussies. The ODIs were then fixed to make them exciting so as to get maximum revenues from the crowds watching etc, and also to have a classic cricket series (tied at 2-2) to kick start the peace process. Now the test series will either be 0-0 or 1-1 going into the final test according to the match fixing rumours.

Its a very different kind of fixing if its true ... but personally i feel it sounds a bit far fetched

Nah i dont think that Pakistan would have won the match if inzamam was caught... the run rate required was 9 an over and rising and dont forget that Inzamam was getting frustrated... they were 4 wickets down with the ball swinging... they would have lost..

They did not have that much bad luck. For example look at the person catching the ball tendulkar...the shortest person in the indian team..lol
if he was able to reach that high it should not be given six! great catch though.. Also you had the moths attacking the indian team!!!

i disagree ... i think that inzi had the capability to control the match and if after being 6 down, moin and shoaib malik can get the equation down to 47 to win from 23 balls, then i think inzi being there would have meant that we'd have won. However me saying this does not mean that i think india didnt deserve to win, in fact i think that Irfan Pathan has a great future and e reminds me a lot of Wasim Akram ... ive earmarked him for stardom !! lol

I think the pakistani public won along with the indians, their behavious was exemplary, indians and pakistani fans freely mingled, and matches were watched in a very civilised manner. There was no crowd disturbance even once ! brilliant ... the pakistanis in lahore apparently partied all nite with the indians celebrating an indian victory !! That is really pleasing to see

What a series. What a series. You think cricket gets boring and then games like that come up. And Pakistan-India weren't bad either

Seriously though, I'm happy India won a very good-spirited series. It looked nervy when Kaif joined Dravid in the 4th match, I believed India would fall apart if one of them were to go, but they held on and won it to set up a blinding decider. Irfan impressed, as did Inzamam as captain and Shoaib Akhtar was immense. Disappointing were Ganguly and the Pakistan all-rounders. And Laxman answered many a critic yesterday, good stuff.

Inzamam ate my paratha!

By the way, India are a far superior team. People who say that say match fixing happened, are just making excuses for Pakistan losing. It was too good to be true? Damn right.

Hey you, I'm feeling great, and yourself?

I thought both sides were fairly even to be honest until the final day. Pakistan's openers didn't give their team a chance to be honest, and I think that's what won it for India as they even stretched the run rate to 2 a ball.

I wouldn't say India are far superior to Pakistan but I'd call them the second best side in the world.
