The victory at Lords on June 21 has given a new ray of hope to this nation of 170 millions. Sheer hard work, dedicated efforts and unwavering commitment took us to this level. While we are grateful to our team; we should not forget Lalit Modi who helped us by not allowing our players to contribute in IPL2 in South Africa. This gave an impetus to our cricket hungry lads and they let their bats and bowling arms speak of their mettle. Well done Team Pakistan. -ABDUL RAUF, Fateh Jang, via e-mail, June 22.
