That "Interview" with Srinivasan reminded me of the movie. Pre-set questions with no scope for debate. #CWC15Final— Röhith Nair (@RohithNair) March 29, 2015
New Zealand captain, Brendon McCullum, is leaving nothing to chance. The batsman took the time to write a heart warming letter, asking for support from Indian fans for the World Cup final. Here's the letter:
Sydney: Australia captain Michael Clarke was momentarily stumped by a bungled question which appeared to be about his sex life as he celebrated Thursday's World Cup semi-final win over India.
Clarke, who had just led the co-hosts to a crushing 95-run win against the defending champions, was facing the media at the post-match press conference at the Sydney Cricket Ground, when he was asked to comment on "the tremendous sex" he had enjoyed since taking over as captain.
The embarrassed reporter quickly corrected himself, telling Clarke he had meant to say "the tremendous success".
"How well do you know me?" Clarke asked the journalist as man-of-the-match Steve Smith, who was sitting next to him, laughed.
"It's a question for my wife," said the skipper.
Australia will face trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in Sunday's final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Yesterday's match wasn't a lose to just Indian cricket fans. Bookies in Mumbai suffered huge losses as India's performance deteriorated. India's performance so far in the World Cup has been unmatched, and the bets were places accordingly. However, their unpredictability cost many bookies severes losses, according to this report by TOI.
As the match started, Australia emerged as favourites with a rate of 40 paise to the rupee. The rate for India was Rs 2.3. When Australia's score crossed 250, its rate became 25 paise. “As India started batting, the team's rate became Rs 1.1,“ said a bookie from Malad-Borivli.
