India has lost the toss and will be forced to bat first.

It’s not enough for India to Win.

India must  win by a big margin (30-runs??) to get into the semi-finals.

The Indian team is unchanged from its victory over Pakistan.

By the way, Pakistan beat Australia earlier today and has 4 points.

Why do I see mostly White faces in the South African team?

Are the Blacks still relegated to the bush in South Africa?

SI is doing a PIP (picture-in-picture) live-streaming via ESPN-3 and live blogging on the Big Mac.

Not the burger, schmuck, but on the big iMac. ;)

Sangakkara delivered a scintillating summary of the story of Sri Lankan cricket deftly weaving the history of the game in the island nation with the country’s colonial history, politics, civil war, victory, defeat, corruption and political interference. Continue reading »

In my opinion, if I have to tell the truth, they (Indians) will never have hearts like Muslims and Pakistanis. I don’t think they have the large and clean hearts that Allah has given us,….It is a very difficult thing for us to live with them (Indians) or to have long-term relationship with them. – Yet Another Paki loser aka Shahid Alfridi
