Of cricketing highs

There are few and far instances when absolute thriller of a cricket match presents itself. There are some images that immediately come rushing to my mind.

  • Sachin Raising a sandstorm in sharjhah in the mid 90s.
  • Javagal Srinath and Anil Kumble taking us to victory someday during navarathri.
  • Yuvraj And Kaif put up that magical partnership to shut Naser Hussain up in Lords.
  • And of course, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman creating the miracle at the Eden in 2001.

Today when Ishant and Laxman made a game of what seemed to be yet an other procession of sorts, the scenes around me in the usually glum seeming cafeteria were hysterical. 

Thank you VVS, that indeed was Very very special.

Missed the match. Yet feeling the "high" of this close win, which is perhaps becoming rarer by the passing year ;)
