I am off to Goa for 5 days starting from tomorrow. Its the eve of Christmas and also the warm welcoming of a brand new year. Till that time there will be no new posts on Techtracer but don’t worry because my mind is filled up with ideas for celebrating the new year on Techtracer in a grand way.

Having been favorites for a long time now India were far from being the favorites amongst the experts and commentators alike but fickle minded audience along with me were in the hoards of the simple yet amazingly brilliant and fresh Indian team which took storm after they chalked out Pakistan in the qualifiers and the unbeaten host South Africa in the quarter finals.
