Young India Awaits A Final With Pakistan

You wouldn't have believed it possible when Yuvraj came into bat today, but the final result for the match read: India beat Australia by 15 runs in the second semifinal to move into the final of the Twenty20 cricket World Cup.

You wouldn't have believed it possible when Yuvraj came into bat today, but the final result for the match read: India beat Australia by 15 runs in the second semifinal to move into the final of the Twenty20 cricket World Cup.
Brief score:

India: 188 for 5 wickets in 20 overs (Yuvraj Singh 70 (in 30 balls), M S Dhoni 36, Robin Uthappa 34 ; M Johnson 2-31).

Australia: 173 for 7 wickets in 20 overs (M Hayden 62, A Symonds 43; S Sreesanth 2-12).

No, that doesn't quite do justice to what a game it was. India had lost both the openers inside the eighth over with the score reading 41 when Yuvraj (70,30b,5x4,5x6) and Uthappa (34,28b,1x4,3x6) joined hands.

And then when the Australians seemed all set to overhaul the target of 189, with Hayden going great guns, it was the way Dhoni and his young team handled the pressure that makes one confident that no matter what the result is on Monday when we meet Pakistan, it would be a match worth watching.

And every match has thrown up a new hero, someone who came seemingly from nowhere to be a true revelation. It was Joginder Singh's turn who finally got rid of Hayden in the
15th over, to make the score read 134-3 in 14.4 overs. In 32 balls, Australia just had to make 55 runs -- but they turned out to be 15 runs too many.
