The big match is being fought out in Iraq and not in South Africa. My priority is the Iraq war. I am only watching BBC late into the night and throughout the day

Iím not sure if I will be watching the final as I think cricket is the most stupid game. I may be in Calcutta and watch it with friends. However, Sourav and his boys deserve a big hand. I have already done my bit by painting a huge bat that was auctioned at Rs 7 lakh. This amount has been contributed as
scholarship to a young cricketer in Bangalore

l I will watch the match at home. My staff has made sure that my afternoon is free to cheer India. I feel Brett Lee is the most dangerous, though the entire Australian team is very good. Despite this I am confident the Indians will bring the Cup home. They have been playing wonderful cricket

I am definitely watching the World Cup final. I have cancelled all my appointments for Sunday to be free for the big occasion. Team India has brought smiles to the faces of millions of our countrymen over the past few weeks. I am sure the team will gladden our hearts on Sunday too. We will watch with bated breath and hope that Sourav Gangulyís men in blue will repeat at the Wanderers what Kapilís boys had achieved at Lordís in 1983

So my reaction is actually a backlash to the family emotion
