India have gone through to the semifinals of the Women’s World Twenty20 and will face Australia in the last four at the Beausejour Stadium here on Thursday. Meanwhile, New Zealand, last year’s losing finalists, will be up against hosts West Indies in the second semifinal at the same venue on Friday after champions England failed to make the grade. There was also a good news for indian sports in chess that v. Anand again become the world chess champion 4th time after beating russian grandmaster veselin Topalov.
Congratulations Anand. There is no doubt remaining now that Anand has been the greatest sportsperson that India has produced. There may have been world champions in other games but no one has remained at the top consistently for more than a decade. My mood was down since India were eliminated in T20 Cricket this morning but now I am once again upbeat.
Thanks to Anand’s great achievement.
