I have no words to describe the feeling... it's slowly sinking in now. India has won the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 beating Pakistan by a narrow margin of 5 runs. Whoa!!!

My company built the official website for the tournament (Yahoo! is the official internet partner of the ICC for this, and we're technical partners to Y!), so we've been slogging away for the past few weeks. Thankfully, the cricket has been really exciting. And we didn't mind staying up late or even spending the nights in office. I loved every minute of the whole experience.

The tension was getting to all of us at the office while watching this mother of all battles. And when the final over was going on, everyone was getting hyper by the second. What if Misbah-ul-Haq had got a six? What if Sreesanth had dropped that catch? Ah! Let's leave that debate aside for now. It's a stupendous victory.

Team India, you've done us proud! Take a bow, Mahi.

Now watch my colleagues celebrating like there's no tomorrow.
