We have often heard the sentence, Cricket Is The Real Winner. We can proudly say that the game has indeed been the winner today. West Indies did win the match but it really did not matter which team ended up as the winning side. Sometimes, in sport, there are things much more important than just a win or loss. Today was such an occasion. ICC asked cricketers from all over the world to come and play in this charity match to raise funds and rebuild stadiums in Caribbean which were destroyed by hurricanes, the cricketers obliged. ICC asked people to come to Lord's and watch, they too came. The board asked people to donate and we are pretty sure, a hefty amount would have come their way. It was so good to see the West Indies players taking a victory lap and applauding the crowd.
The game also happened to be Shahid Afridi's last international match. Don't forget, he did not get a grand farewell when he announced his retirement. Today was the day when he could raise his arms for one more time in the air to celebrate a wicket and he did it too.
All in all, a good day of not just cricket but of hopes that people can get unite to rebuild, redevelop anything and that's enough to keep us in good spirits.
That's all from us today. Thanks for keeping in touch. Good bye and good night.
