FUCK YES!
The SAFFAS worthy foes as always. Love/hate playing them in any sport. Better them than the Aussies...



BTW did you guys know that Eden Park boundaries are short???

This could be NZ's year. Throughout the tournament they have been playing their socks off and they should be really putting the pressure on whoever they have in the final. Though India or Australia are going to be 2 of the toughest sides in ODI's to try and beat in any CWC final - let's hope that being in the finals for the first time doesn't give them too many nerves.

Yeah I'm pretty much the same, anything could happen in the finals, but the boys have already proven themselves to me, they can go win this one for themselves, they don't have anything to prove to the rest of the country anymore.

Couldn't believe that NZ beat South Africa and the final is going to be tough likely Aus will win against India.
It's going to be a tough final good luck NZ and you deserve a round of a applause that all of you guys got this far.

It's hammer time for India! 125 off 10 overs...

Jadeja run out - I think that's it now, Dhoni needs to have an innings of his life to pull this out of the bag.

They are dreaming, and have been for the last 6 overs, singles when they need more, India, frankly don't deserve to be in the final if they are going to play like this.
Give it a fricken go at least, don't lay down.

Australia are fielding and bowling way too well and now with Dhoni out, well actually looking at his run out there he wasn't trying. I think he gave up.

Gave up? They gave up 14 overs ago. Its actually been embarrassing watching them piss about for the past 10 overs.
Who gets fricken 20 something in a batting power play?
Give it all you got or don't bother. India are reaping what they sowed.

So here's the big question, who's going to win between Australia and New Zealand? If Australia are bowling like this in the final then I can see them winning a 5th CWC.

Bowling like what? None of those balls were unplayable. India decided to hit them for singles. That indias fault, not good bowling.

If I sound annoyed, its cause I feel like india didn't even try in that last 15.

I'll happily back the team with 3 of the top ten wickets takers in the competition over errr Mitchell Starc.

Well I guess I was right then, I knew that if Australia played just as well against India as they will against New Zealand in the field then they would win it, seems like that's the case.

Didn't half help that the shadow of the MCG screwed over our batters, but if they were a bit smarter they would have wasted some time to get over that, but those 3 wickets killed us.
Did you really expect Faulkner to be the wicket taker Varsh?

No, I was expecting either Starc or Johnson to get the wickets as those two have been on fire in the last couple of games.

Left: NZers/Rest of the world sportsmanship after success.

Right: Typical Aussie "sportsmanship". Missing in picture, Haddin talking crap/getting into Guptill's face (and the rest of the innings really); Johnson mean-mugging dudes when they're already out.
:snicker

Congrats Australia, you needed this more than us.
