The Bhangra & The Baila

Eden Gardens had gathered to watch a Bhangra special from their boys, and they are still hunting for the guy who unplugged the jukebox.

Yippee Yippee Yippee!!!
Kalu & the Marauder have set the World Cup on fire with their power hitting. India's chances of winning are high if they get these two cheaply.
Uh Oh … The Old Warrior
India may have removed the openers but look who stands in their way - the indomitable Aravinda De Silva - 66 (47).
More Warriors
De Silva's exit doesn't help India in anyway. Mahanama, Ranatunga & Tillakaratne hold fort and get Sri Lanka to a decent score.
Bhangra or Baila?
The wickets are falling but the Indians leak runs too. Sri Lanka - 251/8 in 50. Will it be a Bhangra or a Baila today?
Baila Bhangra!
With Sachin at the crease what else do you expect? Its Bhangra of course! India - 98/1
Colombo Erupts In Joy!
That scary feeling of what might unfold once Sachin disappears from your screen. The whole of Colombo can now breathe easy.
Sad Movies Always Make me Cry
The Indians march to the pavilion one by one. The spectators at the Eden Gardens & millions watching on the telly are devastated.
Baila Bhangra!
The Lankans prove they are worthy champions and go on to complete formalities at Lahore. Come on! Its Baila time!
