Indian Cricket Team in Trouble

Hey Friends,

Recent debaccle of Indian Cricket Team in the match against South Africa, makes me wonder are they going to repeat whatever happened in the last world cup. Is India going to be out of tournament in the first round? India's next match is against West Indies, which in their current form, won't be an easy team to beat.

If India is out in their home country that is the worst thing to happen. Imagine the riots and public's anger.

Lets wish them luck and pray that they go to the next round and bring enough crowd to the ground.

Good Luck to Indian Fans,

Sandesh
