    Australia vs Sri Lanka

    144/5 Golden Duck for Michael Bevan . Aussies struggling but I fully expect, if things go like they usually do, Glenn McGrath will hit a quickfire 50. Not going very well for them.

    212-7 is, I reckon, a little better than par.

    Law of averages finally seems to have caught the Aussies, this is going to be a real tough one for them to win. Sri Lanka off to a gr8 start

    I would hardly say 43-4 is a start...gr8 (or great) or not...

    Law of Aussie cricket I
    If the batting fails, the bowling demolishes the other team.

    :wow:

    Sri Lanka were awesome with just Vaas, De Silva, Murali and Jayasurya. Their fifth bowler (who's supposed to be a real bowler) ruined it all for them...

    Oh dear !! the match stopped due to rain after 38 overs.... with the Aussies on top under the D/L rule. Vaas was having a go with SL at 123-7 and with not too much runs to be chased, it could have been interesting.

    Why is there talk of D/L when there's provision for a rain day?

    Anyone know?

    If the game had been stopped because of any reason before 25 overs a side had been concluded, the match would have been started anew on the rain day. There was no proviso for carrying an incomplete innings across to a second day.

    A bit silly, I think, but there's been a few 'a bitt sillies' in this World Cup

    In all honesty, that's the only silly I can think of. Rest as gone smoothly IMO.

    I was wondering if Sangakarra and Vaas would do a Bevan Bichel miracle

    But oh well...

    As I said, if the Aussie batting falters, the bowling demolishes!

    The selectors will not regret picking Andy Symonds today...

    Their top and middle order have not been that good lately, have they? It's just that their lower order and their bowling and fielding have more than made up for it. That, I guess translates to an unbelievable will to win. Their depth is simply awesome.

    Someone always performs, no matter the situation. On this occasion it was Symonds who played a very responsible innings. Why wasn't Bichel promoted to 7. Hogg and Harvey failed again. Bevan got a dodgy one but you get those every now and again.

    The bowling from the Aussies was first class. Lee was expensive but the ball he got the in-form Atapattu with was too good. Bichel then ripped the heart out of the chase with the brilliant run out of de Silva.

    It was a shame that the rain brought an early end to proceedings but Australia had the game won anyway.

    Bring on India. It will be a great game. (Before anyone admonishes me for saying that India have already made the final, no one could be seriously suggesting that Kenya will win tonight.)
