I think we'll lose tonight as per the TAB odds but I hope it's not one sided like in 2015. For some of us, we may never see a New Zealand team in a final again - it took 40 years to see the first one. Might be another 40 years from here.
I might give up cricket watching after this and end on a high note. That semi final against India was the best live sporting event I've seen however I felt like I was seriously on the edge of a nervous breakdown during it. It was just so tense. I was actually shaking part way through it. And by the time Big MS was run out, i was catatonic. I watched both days live and then watched the full replay that was shown immediately after the live event finished. I didn't even bother going to bed until the next evening.
That game washed away the painful memories of the 1992 semi-final against Pakistan where we seemed to have it and then it slowly slipped away. I watched the highlights of that match today on Youtube - the first time I've gone near that match in 27 years. I felt I finally could.
All the best for a great evening.
