‘Do you hope to be back in Mumbai to play on 2nd April?’ I had asked Jacob Oram on the eve of their group encounter against Sri Lanka in Mumbai.

‘I don’t hope. I know we will,’ Jacob had confidently answerd with a mischivious smile.

His team, New Zealand, is now just a win away from it..

They have defied all Experts and Analysts. They overcame teams like Pakistan and South Africa in the World Cup and proved again why their team is called the Dark Horse of Cricket.

Four times since 1975, The Black Caps have come close to a spot in Final but never made it there. Will they do it this time? OR will it be the 2007 runner-up Sri Lanka who’ll smile again?

Will Jacob come back to Mumbai? We will come to know tomorrow by this time..

Hoping for a big clash! Cheering for both Sri Lanka and New Zealand..
