    SL is not going to declare this innings. No need in giving India a chance to draw this series.
    India's bowlers (Sehwag) needs to get the 8 wickets and give their batsmen a chance.
    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

    I think a draw is only possible if SL bat India out of the match,say by batting for at least another 4 sessions.Otherwise even if they are set 320-330 to win on the last day Ind will go for it.

    Dont think India will get bowled out within a day.

    Sri lanka will bat for about an hour after tea tomorrow setting India a hard-ish total around 280-300. Sehwag will smash a quick 90 and get out early on day 5 and Sachin and will ton up on day 5 and win the game for us with Raina getting an unbeaten 50.

    If they don't they'll get the required runs.If they don't get the required runs they'll prob be bowled out.I don't see Ind batting out the day for a draw.Would be pointless as 0-1 or 0-2 doesn't make a difference but 1-1 certainly does.

    Was more of a compliment to the quality of India's batting, but see it how you like.

    Yesterday was a big let down for me. From when I saw that Sehwag and Sachin were batting together and India was doing good at the end of the 2nd day I was really looking forward to the 3rd day's play.

    Came back from work all excited and the first over Sachin gets out. Totally pissed. Then console myself with Sehwag is still there. Then he gets out to a nothing shot within overs. Total let down.

    Think it will be tough for us on the last day chasing anything above 250. Samaraweera, Sangakkara and Jaya, need these guys to get out early.

    Has anyone seen how ridiculously short India's odds are?

    India 2.04
    Sri Lanka 4.5
    Draw 3.45

    That is just stupid. No value on India at all.

    I just laid India (i.e. betting that they don't win). So it's win win for me. Really want India to win this match, but if Sri lanka win or its a draw, I win some cash

    Cruxdude is right, many of India's top order batsmen let SL off the hook when well-set, the tailenders evened things up somewhat, but we could have really driven home our advantage yesterday.

    As it stands, I'm afraid SL's batsmen will prove very tough to dismiss today...

    Then India has a pretty good chance of a win. This is a day 4 and 5 pitch despite the bowlers.

    India's chance of victory is not 50% though. Yes they have a good chance. But the Betfair odds suggest roughly a 50% chance of an Indian victory.

    It's wrong. India may win, but at this moment in time, those odds are very stupid.
