Big Brother Vs Little Brother (Cricket World Cup Final 2015)

Tomorrow will be the finals between Australia and New Zealand, a trans-Tasman battle will be held at the Melbourne Cricket grounds (MCG).

Google has depicted the world cup today on their doodle. (see below)

aus vs Nz

When it comes to cricket, the  rivalry between the brothers is well known especially by the under arm delivery  that occurred  35 years ago (1981) at the  MCG .

Ex New Zealand  cricket captain Martin Crowe  has indicated that tomorrow’s match may be his last to watch since he is battling with cancer.

The four time champions Australia (1987,1999,2003, 2007) would like to win the cup in front of their home crowd, while  the  cup will be  the first time for the black caps. If the Kiwis win the cup it will be a big boost for the  island nation who has been battling with earthquakes for the last few years.

I vividly remember the  time when Sri Lanka won the cup for the first time in 1996 and the sweet memory lingers as if it happened just a few days ago. There is no doubt that   I will be barracking for the Kiwis for tomorrow.

Go Kiwi!! Win the cup for your nation!!

Remember the Ross Sisters?

I wasn’t born then to remember the Ross sisters. The clip below was taken in 1944 for the movie ” Broadway Rhythm”. They were  acrobatics and contortionists  were  also able to sing.   Ross sisters from Texas were popular in the nineteen forties.  They definitely had gifts to show  the public not like the   current so-called celebrities who are raking money  for not having anything to rave about.

If they would have lived in this century Ross sisters  would have been household names.
