IT SEEMS to have taken a very long time for cricket’s World Cup to reach a climax but at least for once the right two teams are in the final.
Tomorrow’s showdown in Mumbai pits co-hosts India and Sri Lanka in what has all the makings of an absolute classic.
Throw into the equation the fact that Muttiah Muralitharan will be making his last international appearance and that India’s little maestro Sachin Tendulkar (pictured) could also be bowing out in terms of the World Cup – after all he is now 37-years-old – it would be wonderful to see these two go head-to-head.
Injury could stop Muralitharan (who learnt everything he knows playing for Lancashire, honestly) from taking part which would be a crying shame as the tournament does need a fittingly dramatic climax.
Personally I would settle for a two-run margin of victory and I really don’t mind who wins – so come on India!
