Funny!!!!!
Just one thing missing I guess.
Remember, as Ian Pont pointed out, we are not supposed to boo this time.
So we may need this to let our frustration out (if any) without booing:

my gameplan:

1) get some lamb biryani and chicken tikka masala (for the game) before 230 pm friday (lunch price)
2) swim laps in the pool to get dead tired if not already drowsy
3) go to bed early, around 9 pm (and hope to fall asleep)
4) set alarm for 30 mins before match start, 300 am
5) take a shower, pray Isha namaaz if i forgot the night before, pray witr (won't pray for team as i feel thats "cheating")
6) fire up my laptop (BC match thread, game links, skype)
7) watch Bangladesh kick India to the curb while skype audio chatting with my buddy in Sweden who will also be watching the big game.

What about 8) Finish quota of posts to reach 14,999 and then the 'special' winning post when either a. Ash kisses the ground for his double ton b. Rock hits six sixes c. BD's winning run vs. India? =)

1.Wake up by 9am
2.Have an apple so that u dont look fat in the stadium
3.Take a nice long shower with those flowery smelling shower gels
4.Get the hairdrier,iron,curlers ready.
5.Iron their hair or curl or blow dry it.
6.Put on a lot of strong perfume
7.Wear a pound of foundation
8.Put on metres of eyeliner and eyeshadow, a lot of lipgloss
9.Wear the tighest pair of jeans ever and roll up the sleeves of the jersey so that it's nearly sleeveless
10. Take a good look at the mirror to see if they have done enough to look pretty for the cricket loving boys and then pack all the cosmetics and mirror,hairbrish,etc. in a huge pink bag.
11.Put on a pair of 5 inch heeled juta

My ones:
-Take sleeping pills 3-4 days ago & wake up just before the game cause I can't wait anymore.
-keep mint chewing gums in case I don't get time to brush my teeth.
-usually I avoid looking at the date,that helps.(be careful thgh)

 Buy energy drink (Red Bull)
 Take a nice shower
 Gather online Link to watch the game
 Hookup speaker system for good sound quality
 Anti-virus check
 Two rakat nafl namaz or personal form of prayers
 Plan on getting 6+ hours sleep in order to function (unless BD wins, in that case 3 hours fine)
 Have a pillow handy incase emotions (anger/happiness) gets out of control
 Apologize to neighbors in advance incase sounds gets out of control

Game Time (15 minutes prior)
