    What's the pitch like? If it's better than what NZ and SAF played on yesterday he'll make a ton. Go Tharanga GO.

    Even the most fervent Sri Lanka fan would have to admit that most of those weren't exactly against the toughest opposition!

    Four against Zim/Kenya/Bangladesh, and two (plus a half-century) against a fairly demoralised England side. I was lucky enough to see the one at Headingley - there were some lovely strokes as Tharanga and Jayasuriya ripped England apart, but the bowling was shocking.

    I won't rate him as that good until he scores consistently against Ind/Aus/Pak/SA/NZ...hopefully, that'll be in the next couple of weeks

    5.1 Iftikhar Anjum to Tharanga, 3 runs, good length outside off, Tharanga stands and punches that in the gap between cover and mid-off and runs hard, they get three in the end, well run

    Pure class!

    Doesn't matter who he hits them against apparently, if Murali is allowed to take alot of wickets against the crap teams and have people defend them as "still international sides" then I don't see why Tharanga shouldn't be the same!

    Looks a decent batting wicket (hence Jayasuriya’s confidence), bounce has been pretty consistent and there is nearly zero seam or swing. But the Pakistani bowlers have been pretty poor especially Rana, you don’t bowl short on these sort of wickets.

    Wow! Jayasuria is going nuts! Man I wish I could watch this! 47 off 31!

    I really doubt Asif and Ahktar would've let his balloon out to 0/62 off 8 overs....Pakistan already feeling their absence.

    Yes, but Murali's proved time and again that he can get wickets against any team, in any conditions.

    I am so _not_ going to get into a Murali vs. Warne argument here

    8.3 Gul to Jayasuriya, 1 run, short of length delivery on the middle and leg, Jayasuriya goes on the backfoot and pulls it to mid wicket, straight to Afridi at short fine leg, that is dropped, he has failed to cling onto that one, that was a straight forward chance

    Tut tut, can't afford to drop those ones in a tournament like this, especially a bloke like Jayasuria who can be devestating. You need to get him out there as quick as you can. Pakistan not feeling too confident at the moment.

    Afridi breathes a sigh of relief! Jaya goes after only adding 1 more.

    SL off to a blinder, some awesome sixes from Jayasuriya although disappointed he couldn't go on. Expecting big things from Tharanga.

    What's Murali's record like in Australia? Not that flash me thinks. Then again, warn'es in India is shabby as well.

    Great bowlers though.

    Problem is Warne couldn't get wickets against that same side.

    Mind you I agree with your statement regarding Tharanga, he'll be a very good player in a few years.
