An India - West Indies World Cup final would be a delight: Lara

West Indies skipper Brian Lara said an India-West Indies final showdown at the 2007 Cricket World Cup would be a delight for the fans of the two countries.

“One cannot expect a better final than one with India and West Indies. It becomes all the more special since over 50 percent of the people in the Carribean are Indians,” he said during an interactive session on leadership here on Thursday.

“India and West Indies have been playing so much of cricket for the past 8-10 months and it is very likely that both teams will reach the finals of the World Cup to be held in my country,” the legendary southpaw added.

Lara, who was out of action in the Cuttack One-Day International (ODI) due to an injury, said he hoped to play in the third match at Chennai, because his knee was healing well.

“I am still sore in the left knee but I hope to get better within the next 24 hours. I will hopefully play in the next game on Jan 27,” the West-Indian captain said.

India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four match series. Expressing happiness over the present excellent form of Shivnarain Chanderpaul, Lara said he hoped the same continued for the next few months till the World Cup.
