    Awesome Q! Simply awesome!

    Great pics Q. A thoroughly deserved win..and you deserve it too for keeping faith.

    Pakistan's campaign shows the importance of winning the 'big moments' and peaking at the right time. It is fitting that the two best bowling sides met and the side whose batsmen kept their nerve won.

    great assembly of pics Q...

    as you know i was always looking for pak-sl finals...and asked pak to give me one more match...and they did exactly the same in most grandiose manner...

    congrats!!

    Lol;

    I'd forgotten just how awful those uniforms from the 92 World Cup were.

  5. SledgeHammer said...
     

    @Leg Break: really? I think I preferred those 92 uniforms.

    Though dark green is the more appropriate color to correspond to our flag.

    The currrent uniforms could use a bit of a redesign.

    Aah.. such lovely pictures....

    our victory in '92 and '09.. absolutely awesome !!!

    But we need to reintroduce the '92 uniform...It was the best green ever !!!

    Well done boys Well done!!

    Mushy's mush!

    Still remember his googly to Hick, Malik's throw from the deep, Aquib Javed's catch, Beefy trying to get away with a caught behind, Imran's huge 6, Inzi's tickle and Wasim's two balls. Awesome. Maybe I should rephrase that.

    ...and the classic commentary!

    Agree with sledge...I actually think that tops a classic Leg Break!

    Thanx Sledge.

    Took some digging to get hold of the 92 pics.. esp the Imran Khan-Miandad hug. Could not find that pic anywhere.. so I youtubed it and clicked.. hence the unclarity..

    Late,

    Thanks man. For Pakistan it was a very un-Pakistan win - clinical, efficient, well thought out, planned, and executed to perfection!

    SP,

    U called it right my friend.

  11. Q said...
     

    LB,

    I actually liked Pakistan's..

    Though one can clearly distinguish between the camera quality!

  12. Q said...
     

    Anonymous,

    I think the Dark Green is more apt, as Sledge pointed out..

    But yeah, well done!

    Thanx!

    Stani,

    I know what ur saying.. I can read u the final scorecard from the top of my head.. even the semi final one!

    The bright green makes my eyes sore. It reminds me of a really bad 80s band with wimpy drum machines.

    Also, it clashed really badly with the stripes.

    The dark green is far more manly.

  15. Q said...
     

    LB,

    Agree abt the manly part...

    But still don't mind the 92 green - association with the title I guess.

    This was only the moment in which any one can fail to control his emotions.....

    Hammad,

    Welcome to Well Pitched.

    Ur right.. I lost all control of my emotions.

  19. Q said...
     

    Maza,

    There were a lot of similarities between 1992 and 2009...
