    There really is a lot of Murali in some of Dananjaya's deliveries, and in his run up in general. Certainly more so than any other non-Murali bowler I've ever seen, including Botha who actually modelled his original off spin action on Murali.

    Samuels's strike rate has moved above 100.

    Only took three sixes in four balls to get it there...

    And that over makes a nonsense of everything that's gone before.

    Wow Taufel really missed that.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    What a fascinating game. A classic SL spin choke which all but won them the game after 10 overs. A brilliant counter-attack by Samuels against Malinga. And now Pollard comes in who could definitely turn this game around in the last 6 overs. 12 an over and SL are close to 150 which could be competitive in a final.

    Pollard had no idea against Mendis.
