Cup thriller: weighing up the what ifs

ONLY one person in the world was not surprised when England and India shared a 676- run feast at the World Cup that ended with a heart-stopping tie off the last ball.
Shane Warne is a man who could do wonders with the ball, but who could have guessed the Australian spinning genius was also an amazing soothsayer?
 “Looking forward to the game between India and England today, should be a cracker. My prediction a tie!” Warne tweeted before the Group B match started in Bangalore on Sunday.
 For everyone else, there was sheer disbelief at the result.
In the end, England’s tail-ender Graeme Swann was left with the task of hitting at least two runs off the final delivery of paceman Munaf Patel after some seven hours and 99.5 overs of exhaustingly absorbing cricket. – Reuters
