Default Presidents of Ind,SL to watch final at mumbai

Patil, Rajapaksa to watch World Cup final in Mumbai

After the high octane India-Pakistan match in Mohali, the World Cup cricket final in Mumbai on April 2 is also going to be a high-profile event with President Pratibha Patil and her Sri Lankan counterpart Mahinda Rajapaksa set to watch the encounter.

Ms. Patil will be flying to Mumbai for the keenly awaited match after India entered the final by thrashing Pakistan at Mohali on Wednesday, Rashtrapati Bhawan sources said.

The President has been following the game and had watched the India-Pakistan semi-final match.

The Mohali encounter provided the “setting” for a “re-engagement” between India and Pakistan with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani mixing cricket with diplomacy.

Reports from Colombo said that Rajapaksa will fly to Mumbai for the India-Sri Lanka final.

“The President wants us (Sri Lanka) to win the World Cup as a tribute to Muttiah Muralitharan who retires from international cricket after this World Cup,” Mr. Rajapaksa’s spokesman Bandula Jayasekera told reporters.

The Sri Lankan President and his three sons were keen spectators on Tuesday night when Sri Lanka beat New Zealand to reach the final to meet India.
