It is always a tremendous achievement to win against Australians who are practically born on a saddle and the euphoria of the Indian team spilled over onto the stands.

The packed grandstand had Delhi’s cognoscenti assiduously cheering for Team India. Celebrities from various walks of life came to enjoy the match too. We couldn’t help but notice some who have been in the news recently for all the right and wrong reasons: the feared and admired comptroller and auditor general of India Vinod Rai with wife Geeta, MP Naveen Jindal with son Venkatesh, Kashmir royals Vikramaditya Singh and Chitrangada Raje Singh with daughter Mrighanka, external affairs minister Salman Khurshid (he’s become a polo aficionado lately), Jaisal and Anjali Singh, Yashodhara Raje Scindia and cigar baron Chetan Seth.
