A dream trip to watch both semi finals and what turned out to be an extremely lucky couple of tickets to the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England. Memorable on many counts, including watching India play (sadly, for a losing cause) at Old Trafford - Manchester. England took on and soundly thrashed Australia in the other semi final at Edgbaston and so, that was the second dud in a row.
New Zealand, for me were the real winners in a farcical decision to award the title to England in what was possibly the match of our lifetimes. Ben Stokes played the innings of his ODI career, sure, but umpire Kumar Dharmasena epitomized what human error can do in crunch situations and the rule book was undoubtedly the biggest villain of all.
All said, privileged to watch an epic final at the home of cricket - Lords. Enjoy the pictures!
