It doesn't matter who wins or loses... but WE WON! WE WON!! As the sms doing the rounds goes: Dr Abdul Kalam's wish fufilled. India is a superpower in 20: 20! :)
And cricket has turned a corner. No erudite commentary about silly mid ons and silly mid offs. Any idiot can understand this game.
Ball maaro, bhaago.
Do a jig.
Hit some more.
With Twenty20, cricket is catering to an attention deficit, exceed-our-expectations generation.
And for once, there is no chest-beating about losing our 'heritage'. If five day matches die out altogether, and one days become occasional fixtures - so be it.
If the stars we've known and loved must bow out and make way for a new constellation, so be it.
Change crept upon us - and we embraced it.
If only we could accept and move with change, in other spheres of life.
Every old building is not a heritage structure.
Every tradition can be updated.
Every dog has his day.
Change is good.
Going with the flow makes it better!
Speaking of change, there is something of that sort going on in my head. More on that, soon...
