One of the high points of last year was India's thrashing of Pakistan in Pakistan. India had won the test and one day series there. I had hoped that India would retain the trophies here. But unfortunately, it was not the case. We lost the one day series and allowed the Pakis to draw the test series. So sad. This would be one of the low points of 2005 for me.
John Wright is no more the coach of Indian cricket team. It was the worst possible send off for him as India crashed to thier worst defeat in Indian soil. Wright had lifted India to some very high levels. A 2-1 series victory over Ausies, world cup final, 1-1 draw over Aussies in australia and the Pak tour wins. Under his guidance India have won more test matches abroad than ever before. Hope we find a good replacement.
Ganguly's 6 match ban stands. ICC stood by their match refrees decision. So we wond see the Bengal Tiger in action for the next 4 one dayers atleast.
Manchester United displayed one of their best performances of the season as they hammered the Newcastle United 4-1 in the FA Cup semis. All eyes are now on Cardiff where ManU take on Arsenal on May 21st in the finals. Ronaldo was at his best and all his crosses seem to land in the net somehow. Super show. Thursday Arsenal take on Chelsea in an all London encounter. Hope Chelsea wins this and seals the fate of the other title contenders.
