It was always about the Fab 4 OF Viru, Sachin, Ganguly, and Dravid in Indian batting. Once they were back to the pavilion, it is almost game over for India. This is why the match-winning partnership of Yuvraj and Kaif in the Natwest final against England turned the Indian cricket history.

The two young batters battling out and chasing a magnamious England’s 325 is a dream come true for any Indian cricket fan then.

At one stage, India were 146/5, looking pretty decisive on their way home as the losing side. But when Yuvraj Singh (69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*) added 121 for the 6th wicket to bring the match back to the Indian side, India’s taste of victory became evident.

But the moment happened just after Kaif took the winning runs. Sourav Ganguly, the Indian Captain, watching from the stands, took off his shirt and swirled it wildly, much the same way as Andrew Flintoff celebrated after beating India during England’s preceding tour of India.

That’s a sight for the Indian fans.
