    Pretty **** match. But Saffers paying $1.38 is crazy. Lanka suck hard, but Saffers have got to be the most overrated limited overs side in recent memory.

    Edit: scratch that, I see Mathews is not playing.

    Sorry Sri Lanka but your national anthem sounds like a nursery rhyme.

    Don't fancy Perera's batting much in these conditions against quick bowling. Top order has to do the damage.

    Agree that Sri Lanka certainly aren't overwhelming underdogs here. It was 60-40 at best even with Mathews missing.

    Thirimanne really shouldn't be playing T20 for club sides let alone for his country.

    Looks a good cricket wicket this. Just a bit of grass to help the ball come on, there's something there for all the bowlers and consistent pace for the batsmen to play shots.

    Dead rubber, exactly the kind of scenario they thrive in.

    You have no idea about music from subcontinent. SL national anthem is great.

    You are correct, its all relative to each person but I just wish they had some batsman as good as their anthem.

    SA have to chase the 120 down in 14.3 overs to make Sri Lanka finish bottom.

    I'm just pleased to get the calculator out once
