We are bruised by internal strifes. We are down with the nuisance of militancy. But we are rising somewhere else, on the horizon of World Cricket. The world is looking at us with awe, with wonder. We are about to dazzle their eyes with the flashes of our talent. We’re about to lift the coveted trophy of the ICC World Twenty20, 2009; we are just one game away. a mere single game.
What we did last night was a proof of our capabilities. It was a slap on the faces of our detractors who wanted to close the doors of world cricket upon us. We were isolated. We were pushed to the corner. What we did last night just was a fitting response from the cornered tigers.
We are one game away and we need it the most. Our nation deserves it the most.
Come on, Afridi, Gul, Saeed, Akmal and all!
Just don’t let your desire fall!
Come bring the glory home
Which will roam
In the poisoned body
Of our ailing populace
Like a panacea does ..
