    Yeah, I don't think any one country has a mortgage on them, tbh.

    Anyways guys, wish you a good evening of watching tonight, but I can't honestly wish you all too much luck. Cheers.

    How Lankans Down Under celebrated WC final

    The Nation spoke to several Sri Lankans residing in Australia to see how they geared up to enjoy the cricket fiesta.

    Asanka Gurusinha is not a stranger to Sri Lanka. Especially those who glued themselves to the TV sets, back in 1996, know the role he played in winning the cup of glory for this island nation. There was a stronger batting line-up back then, but the bowling side is pretty strong this time. Our bowling attack had been instrumental in winning the game for us during the whole tournament,” Gurusinha said with conviction.

    ......

    Shehan Wijethilake in Sydney Australia was of the view that although Australians were clear favourites, Sri Lanka was the next best. “There is a lot of respect for the Sri Lanka team among Australian players and the people. They are not underestimating our team,” he said.
    He also said there was a backlash in Australia against their team. “The behaviour displayed by the team- mates is not endorsed by the public. There are a lot of negative sentiments towards the team,” he added.
    He commented that although there was a lot of criticism levelled at the Sri Lanka team for not playing their best talent at their last encounter with the Aussies, this seemed to be a strategic move to get the opposing batsmen to get caught-up in the bowling fire-power of the Lankans."
