    awtj re: Afridi.

    You need solidity at the start, not a rumble tumble of wickets.

    Sri Lanka should look at this as a 16 over game and should go all out. That's the way to go.

    Does Akmal need to have a sorry/pity/constipated face on, all the time?

    Come on, it doesn't matter how good a player is defensively in the first 6 overs of a T20 game. Maybe in the middle overs but not in the first 6 overs. Afridi can finish a match like this in 4 overs if he plays during the field restrictions. I dont fancy his chances against Murali and Mendis in the middle overs.

    Great recovery from SL. Looked gone at 70/6.

    Pleased too 'cos I thought the final was going to fizzle at one point, at least they have a target to bowl at now.

    This pitch isn't one where slogs will succeed as it is on the slower side more often than not. You don't need huge runs to get. Why lose a wicket when Afridi can play a much more responsible inning later on when required.

    Shazaib's technique is ugly.
    Or something.

    Luck not going Lanka's way as skiers are not going to fieldsmen. You feel a wicket is about to fall though. It is inevitable.

    If anyone is going to win SL the World Cup, its Murali with the ball IMO.

    A lot of talk about Mendis and Malinga, and fair enough as they've been taking the wickets. But Murali is the man IMO.
