    Although I think it should be if Watson gets a 50 or takes 2 wickets, not 3. He's a batting allrounder you know...
    OK, if he gets over 30 or 2 wickets I'll change it. Can't see it happening. If not, you shall have Michael Mason's mug on display for a month.

    Agree with all that. My only submission is

    1. Its Sri Lanka's best chance to do it.
    2. They are playing close to their best cricket, If Sangakarra was amongst the runs it would have been THE BEST they can play. And no team should be asked to do better than that.
    3. Australia are due for a bad day (and how)

    Yes Australia ARE the favourites but this thing just might happen.

    My big worry would be Sri Lanka succumbing to the pressure of the occasion.

    I think the of Arvinda and Arjuna is the big difference between Sri Lanka of 1996 and 2007. Not because of the cricketing skills of those two stalwarts , which were very considerable, but for their mental toughness.

    Thats the real test of Sri Lanka 2007.

    After that they have to still wait for how Australia play on that day.

    That's a good point.

    That being said, I rate Jayawardene's mental strength quite highly. Not often does he seem overwhelmed. If Sanga can stay strong and not throw away his wicket like he's done on a few occasions in this WC, they'll have a good chance.
