An evening to remember

An evening to remember

At places where the match was shown live, hundreds had gathered and cheered at full volume every time a Pakistani wicket fell. In the 50th over of the Pakistani innings, every dot ball that Zaheer Khan bowled was celebrated with loud applause. Soon after India winded Pakistan up, flags were taken out and placards with congratulatory messages were displayed.

Fire crackers lit the skies and the exhilaration made its mark. As news reporters jostled each other to interview the revellers, the celebrations became more deafening.
The City police, as expected, were on their toes. They used mild canes against cricket buffs on M G Road and Chamarajpet where a few of them were also detained before being released.

“Long live Dhoni and his boys,” the message was loud and clear as drums were beaten and fire crackers burst. Quite a few fans captured all the action on their mobile phones as revellers partied and roared in joy. It was a night few would forget in their lifetime.
