The uncertainty, the pressure, the talent and the skills and the mental apitude of the players help make the game so interesting

The Finals

What a very intriguing game is that one of cricket
Winning is achieved mainly by skills displayed at the wicket
This included batting, bowling and some very good fielding
To ensure that the opponents chances keep diminishing.

This world cup really presented some very interesting scenarios
Especially in Group B, it was hard to decide the order
The English team at one stage was balancing so precariously
But West Indies and South Africa, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

This game does not work by any sort of mathematical formula
On paper one of the finalists, seemed to be Australia
But was sent packing back to their respective homes down under
When the team was so convincingly beaten by India.

At that i decided to adjust my teams to be the semi-finalist
In my estimation placed South Africa as one on my list
At one time New Zealand seemed quite down, but a spectacular catch
By Mr Oram, was that inspiration that made them win the match.

Somehow there was always somewhere in my plan
Never to over look that possibility of the team from Pakistan
Though sometime very unpredictable, but on its day has the mettle
To make it to the finals and subsequently winning the title.

Each game it play it seemed to be better, so there is this enigma
That is in the situation with the presence of the team Sri Lanka
It was with precision, that it effected a sort of demolition
So the English team was sent packing back to home base England.

Yes when all is said and done there were some interesting situation
There were victories by Ireland and Bangladesh, over England
Then there was also the use of the technology
To help make some decisions be viewed more decisively.

One could make all the permutation and combination
It is quite certain, that one of the finalists will be Asian
But the level and intensity, of the talent that was on show
Demonstrated that some of those playing, still have some way to go.


Batting, Bowling, Cricket, Fielding, Wicket Enigma
