The #indvspak Post

It's been less than 24 hours since we beat Pakistan in the 2011 WC semi final to proceed to the final against Sri Lanka. Whether this was the biggest match in history, as proclaimed by some commentators will be decided by history, but no two ways about the fact that it was a big, BIG match. Given that most of you will be in a very forgiving mood, I plan to use the cheap trick of not coming up with any 'original' content for this post but rehash some of my tweets from yesterday. Also, a big thank you to everyone for the mentions and RTs. Cricket was so much less exciting without Twitter.

All tweets are in chronological order, starting with Wednesday (30-Mar-2011) morning. And for the record I am a Sri Lanka fan and facing the biggest dilemma of my life for the final.
