    I think the decision to bowl Kulasekara and take Mendis off backfired. Mendis and Murali together could have really applied the pressure. As it is, the match won't go to the 50th over.

    Well played England though, to hang on. I saw 7-8 overs after coming home from dinner and thought their batsmen were really struggling out in the middle and thought they were dire. They did the important thing though. It is still not over. Makes this group interesting though.

    Murali will always be threat.

    You're not watching the match, are you? They bowled together for 7 or 8 overs and were dominated.

    Haha, can't argue with that!

    Well, we'll see now. England were paying 1.06 at one point there so this would be a serious choke.

    Shah gone. Could be a chance for Sri Lanka here. Be interesting to see how Prior goes. Morgan is vital now.

    They should have carried on together IMO Uppercut. Mendis offered hope in the form of ms hits by batsmen and the next thing we know, he is taken off.

    I'm very impressed with England's batting here. Lots of singles were scored, and more importantly, huge partnerships were built. That has had its effect on the Lankans, who seem to have lost their bite here. How much of a contribution was made by the sixes hit by Collingwood is a question- some of them were very tough shots to play.

    Kula looked like he could nab one too to be fair. But Mendis could be seriously dangerous against new batsmen with four overs left.

    We'll see. My thought at the time was he was running out of overs so they saved him for after the breakthrough. There's still time of course.

    EDIT
    Admittedly I thought he'd get more than one over at this stage.

    Must have been good if you're praiding a Colly ODI innings

    Anyway, can't watch, not sure whether I should be glad or not about that. Eeek. Nervous, but we'll do it.
