    You make a good point about Sanga setting defensive fields despite being on top.I think all Asian teams tend to be ultra-defensive which is a reason why we get a lot of draws in the SC.Dhoni was way too defensive against Mendis and Samaraweera....
    Disagree on it being SC thing, I find all the captains these days are too defensive and too timid to take any chances. In fact, I find Ponting and Smith the wost offenders of this.
    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

    Only attacking captains in recent times was Fleming and Mahela Jayawardene.

    And Jayawardene just handed over because he got tired of it

    This is why a lot of SL fans (me) are easily frustrated with Sanga's captaincy, really tough act to follow

    200 is not that impossible target, Tendulkar needs to stay and if he does India will win.

    RE: Taufel's decision, I don't really have a problem with it.

    If an umpire instinctively thinks that it's caught, but wants to check upstairs to make sure that there wasn't an obvious bounce on the ground, then that's fair enough for mine. I'd rather that than an umpire thinking that the ball has been caught, but ruling not out.

    I don't have a problem with it, so long as it's the actual rule.

    It's not currently though.

    There's no law referring to the "benefit of the doubt" in the laws of cricket. It's convention.

    Srilanka clearly the favorites here. India's only hope is Tendulkar. He's been Mr. Clutch the last 3 years, coming up big under pressure almost every time. Today's one of the biggest test match days India will be playing in recent memory. Up to Tendulkar to make it a memorable one.

    There is a law that the umpire has to be sure it's out though.

    I just heard Taufel's explanation, and it's fair enough, but I completely agree with what Arun Lal is sying in response. If the umpire is going to have a "consultative" process with a 3rd umpire (rather than a referral), then why only for catches?

    Arun Lal is spot on here.

    Because there's a loophole in the laws, and God forbid that an umpire uses some common sense.

    I hope an edge doesn't find its way through the vacant slip position. With the amount of bounce Randiv extracts surely a slip is a no-brainer.

    That's the second time Tendulkar poked at a ball with a bit of a negative line though. As long as he is there, India have a chance. Tendulkar stands between India and defeat. How many times has that happened now in his career?

    Laxman looking very good against Randiv btw.
