It's the big quarterfinal. India are taking on Australia and twitter is buzzing. We hand-pick the finest words of wisdom from celebrities and common folk alike.

@NehaThakkar14 (Neha Thakkar) dear Australia, like Munaf Patel bowled for you, now it's your turn to pay off the debt!!

@VR_Flyers (Vaibhav Rohilla) Congratulations Punter on such a great Captains innings and for answering your critics in such an emphatic way.

Pakistan warned to keep feet on ground

@bhogleharsha (Harsha Bhogle) ok guys if you are cricket lovers put your hands together and applaud an outstanding innings. big day, big player!

@jhunjhunwala (Rakesh Jhunjhunwala) You all can say whatever you want but Munaf Patel will always be the World's Greatest Number 11 Batsman of all time

abdullah_omar (Omar Abdullah) Why did Ponting have to choose this match to come good??????

@bhogleharsha (Harsha Bhogle) india had no reviews left! this could be the world cup for india?

@vikramchandra (Vikram Chandra) Ponting was out there! LBW to Bhajji but not given. If only India hadn't wasted the reviews!

@blinkandumissit (Saurabh Somani) The good news when Munaf Patel bowls is that he's not fielding. The bad news is that he's bowling. #cwc2011 #IndvsAus

@Actor_Siddharth (Siddharth) Zak, take a bow:) what a stunner of a slow ball. Also, sachin's little gem to clarke brought back memories:) superb!!

@fakingnews (Faking News) This is the right time to give Ponting the bill for the LCD TV he broke in Motera last time.

@rameshsrivats (Ramesh Srivats) Dhoni looks at Munaf. Frowns at him. Shakes his head. Looks at the pavilion. Sees Nehra & Sreesanth. Looks at Munaf again. Smiles sadly.

@Prashanth_Krish (Prashanth) Ponting has hit 5 Centuries when batting first against India and Australia have won every one of them.

@fakingnews (Faking News) HR dept announces award for anyone found working after India-Aus match begins #motera

@deepakshenoy (Deepak Shenoy) Ponting has hit the Nifty. The Sensex is not pleased.

@cricketwallah (Ayaz Memon) Wonder why most people still think Yuvraj is part-timer in ODIs? He's been the most consistent wicket-taking slow bowler for the team in Cup

@sumank (Suman Kumar) You can't expect the Motera crowd to applaud Haddin. There's only one Chennai in the world. Sorry!

@sidvee (Sidvee) It's all about Harbhajan and Munaf today. After all, it's the Sardar Patel Stadium

@giffy6ty (Santhosh Kumar) Sreesanth shd have played this match. The only Indian capable of giving Aussies their own medicine -- SLEDGING

@Joydas (Joy D) Munaf Patel's Plan failed. He had thought that if he shaves, Aussies won't recognise him and won't hit him

@amreekandesi (amreekandesi) This Yuvraj is getting too many wickets. Sounds fishy. Expect the opposition to raise this in Parliament tomorrow.

India challenge excites Pakistan coach

@sidin (Sidin Vadukut) At least Australia has scored more than West Indies.

@jhunjhunwala (Rakesh Jhunjhunwala) Ricky Ponting appears like he is getting back form.Why does everyone out of form always get their form back playing India?

@bhogleharsha (Harsha Bhogle) everyone writing off ponting. this man is one of the legends of the game!

@Joydas (Joy D) Aussies Se Dar Nahin Lagta Sahab ji, Munaf Se Dar Lagta Hai

@VaughanCricket (Michael Vaughan) Backing the Aussies today.. Sorry India but I have a gut feeling..

@akshaykumar (Akshay Kumar) I luv it.India has strted wid a spinner.Dhoni is a legend #Aussies wont know what comin.Our Captain is full of surprises,welcome back Sehwag
