Yep. I actually watched cricket.Properly. for the first time ever. *le gasp* AND IT WAS AN EPIC MATCH!
And It lasted 9 HOURS! from 2.30 pm to 11.30 pm!! *dies* obviously I didn’t watch the whole thing cause that’s just insane for me. especially for my first time. But really it was just..wonderful. I shall explain in gifs.
When the game first started:
When I started to understand the game:
When India started getting some wickets in the first half:
When it was India’s turn to start Batting (or whatever you call it):
When Gautam Gambhir
stole my heart was hardcore and batted for nearly 3 hours straight with his dorky-ness:
When Gambhir went out when he had 97 RUNS AND ALMOST GOT HIS FIRST EVER CENTURY:
When Dhoni beautifully hit that ball out of the park and scored the winning sixer:
When “Maa Tujhe Salaam” by A.R. Rahman was playing in the background while the other athletes celebrated:
It was beautiful. You could actually feel how hard the players were playing and some of them looked like they were about to pass out. It was so moving when India won the World Cup. I feel such a strong connection to India lah. I feel so happy for them. :’)
