Such a shame

Aw! I was totally looking forward to the India-Pakistan one-off clash at Glasgow. The beauty of a one-off game is that all the effort and rivalry is concentrated on winning one single match at any damn cost. Especially when it is a India-Pakistan encounter the voltage was sure to be high. Such a shame that the rain had to spoil it all.

Irrespective of any claims made by the Pakistan side to the contrary, India was always a favourite against a new look Pakistan team with a new captain in Shoaib Malik at the helm. And that makes me all the more disappointed, if not livid, at having been denied the pleasure of witnessing the match. Goddamn rains! Covers on a cricket pitch is such a grim and sorry sight.
