CHURUMURI POLL: India 1983 or Sri Lanka 1996?

Now that the hyper-hyped, pressure-cooked, emotion-laden, diplomacy-injected semi-final is out of the way, here is a simple question: which subcontinental team will have the honour of becoming the first to win cricket’s quadrennial showpiece for the second time in Bombay tomorrow?

Will India repeat 1983?

Or will Sri Lanka repeat 1996?

Will India’s strong top-order conquer Sri Lanka’s strong bowling lineup? Or will the equally strong Sri Lankan top order conquer India’s weaker but so far effective lineup? Will the middle order (and the injuries) be the achilles heel for both teams? Does India have the home team advantage, or does Sri Lanka have the edge have played before on the newly laid Wankhede track? And which ice-cool wicket-keeper will turn out to be the better captain in marshalling his resources, Kumar Sangakkara or Mahendra Singh Dhoni?

Will the boys in blue ensure that Poonam Pandey (in picture) will have to keep her promise of baring all if India wins? Or will the other boys in blue protect her modesty?

    It is heartening to read many of your comments. It is disheartening to note that you still refer to Mumbai as Bombay.

    India should win it tomorrow, Back in Wills 1996 cup, the match was highly controversial, Incidents like Sachin was the only Indian batsman to perform in the infamous semi-final against Sri Lanka. Tendulkar fell amid a batting collapse and the match referee awarded Sri Lanka the match after the crowd began rioting and set fire to parts of the stadium.

    And we have a problem with Gandhi’s sexuality! :D

    Is it irony that the modesty of an Indian woman is in the hands of Lankans? History repeats backwards :D

    My guess is the Indian team might like to lose just to avoid seeing poonam pandey naked :)

    Dear Shrinivas,

    In the northern part of HP there is a lake called Renuka. north of this lake is river whose name is included in my memory lapse. there is a rocky mountainous island called Lanka. Further about 14 Kms away is a virgin peak called BunderPoonch.

    That is the real Lanka.

  7. Shrinivas Says:

    Thanks “the colonel”. I would definitely like to know more similarities of that real Lanka with the one in Ramayana. No disrespect intended but as amazing as India is, I am curious to learn as much as possible.

    It seems our Vijay Mallya was pimping Poonam Pandey to strip or atleast spread that chalant vibration.
    With Ratan Tata with Radia tapes and Satyam Raju behind Sullu samrajya and a president Rajapaksha visiting Tirupati as if there are less issues in Sri Lanka- shows the capitalistic chore singing whorely tunes all around for the event with most betting and less sports
