New Delhi: The Twenty20 carnival has come to its end with a new champion. Pakistan have dethroned India as the defending champions. They had missed it by a whisker in 2007 but they did it this year. Somewhat like Roger Federer clinching French Open after a hobbling and struggling defending champion Rafael Nadal made an early exit.
I know it aches many Indian hearts but it's an undeniable fact. And seriously, it could not have met a better end.
Ponder over it and everything falls into place. It was March 3 when Sri Lankan cricketers, who had toured Pakistan because India declined to go there post-26/11, were attacked in Lahore. That was something unimaginable. Cricket and cricketers were never attacked in the sub-continent.
