New Delhi, Sep 23 (UNI) ''It's a dream for any Indian cricketer, If you give one wish, every cricketer would probably would want to do well at an Indo-Pak World Cup final and Team India now has this opportunity,'' says former Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja.

India beat Australia in their semi final encounter last night by 15 runs to book their place in the final against arch rivals Pakistan in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup.

''Now they just got to think and see how fortunate they are that they have this opportunity today,'' Jadeja said adding, ''And they have worked hard for it so that's the only reason they have this opportunity.'' Speaking to UNI by phone, he said, ''(It's a) Fantasy, that every Indian cricketer has, to play a World Cup final and that too against Pakistan. I think we couldn't had asked for more.'' On India's win against the mighty Australia, Jadeja said, ''It was full of joy. Joy is the first thing that comes to my mind for the team, for myself, for everybody in this country. Joy, Pleasure of watching cricket.'' On Yuvraj Singh's scintillating performance, he said ''Oh, he is just fabulous, I always believed that he has the ability far superior than what we had already seen, but was he has shown it looks like, today we are talking about one of the best in the world.'' He gives full credit to the team effort for the performance in throughout the tournament saying, ''They have done a fantastic job as a team.'' On India's bowling, Jadeja said, ''They (Team India) have done a fabulous job. They have done more than we expected them to do. They look solid. But there is a lot of room for improvement there. They (youngsters) all have done very well.'' On who he thinks, will be the key player for the two teams in the final, he pointed, ''Look, that's the change in Indian cricket.

There is no key player anymore, they are all key players.'' ''Well, from that (Pakistan) side I think the dangerous one's are (Shahid) Afridi and Shoaib Malik,'' he added.

Jadeja, in his message to the team, said, ''Just do whatever you have been doing. I don't know what you guys are doing. Stick to whatever you have been doing, don't try and do anything more, its more than enough.'' ''How I see it is, you are enjoying the moment. Keep enjoying the moment. you don't get many shots at World Cup final and specially against Pakistan.

''So enjoy the moment and make the most of it,'' he concluded.
