I still remember the last over of the innings by Joginder. Jogie’s first ball was wide. He was then fielded at Long On. He had been praying in his mind every ball since the 15th over. On the BBC’s Doorasha program, Uthappa said his prayer was only to win the match.

When Jogi’s first ball was wide, he didn’t look so disappointed. I was relieved to find out that it was okay and not a six. But on the next ball, Pakistan hit a six. But he never gave up his confidence. Come on, mind you, we could. In that case, things were positive for Pakistan. However, Uthappa said he was convinced that India could win.

The last ball of the innings was faced by skipper Misbahul Haq. He played the scoop shot. It was so tall, but he noticed that it didn’t go too far. It was then that he noticed who the fielder was in the short-leg. Sreesanth is there. Sreesanth was known as a player who missed the catches of the team until that moment. Especially very easy catches. “I have seen Sreesanth drop even the easy catches,” he said.

He was praying in his mind when he saw Sreesanth running down the ball to catch the catch. I prayed to God to help him with the ball. Sreesanth caught up with the prayer and we were successful.

But you see that catch, he looks up and down as the ball falls into his hands. Therefore, he still believes that the World Cup should be won by God.
