If are not among those who are planning to call in sick and bunk office to watch the India-Pakistan match, chances are that you would miss that cuppa of special ginger tea sold outside your office.

Such is the frenzy that vendors of tea, ice cream, chaat and bhelpuri have decided to declare a half-day holiday to watch the most awaited match of World Cup 2011.

"I may not come tomorrow at all and even if I do, I will only sell tea till 2pm," said Mohammad Shabeer, who has tea stall at KG Marg.

Asif Khan, who has a bhelpuri stall at Connaught Place, had planned for the match day in advance.

"The day India entered the semi-finals, all my friends decided they would come over to my house so that we can watch the match together. I am not setting my stall tomorrow and neither are my friends," he said.

These plans have left office goers a bit worried and some have decided to get tea from home in flasks.
