    I agree, and with the likes of Styris and Fulton I hope we have the sorts of players who can play an innings like that. I'm not entirely sure SL do, although Sangakkara is pure class and can play any sort of innings really.

    Judging by your last prediction, I wish Sri Lanka well in the final.

    Jayo will love the bounce, in particular if Gillespie plays. He's pretty good against Bond too on good batting surfaces, so if it doesn't swing for him then he'll be ok. I'm fearing a type of innings he played against us like the one in the Champions trophy - square cutting Bond for six!

    If we (NZ) can get him early then that's the key - then we can go to the final and drop whoever they select as the 3rd seamer/pie-thrower and play Patel.

    If Malinga plays, SL win IMO.

    I think Bond's 10 overs will determine the outcome.

    Possibly.

    This game's just too close to call.

    Am very, very ****ed off at Channel Nine. I could understand them not showing every game of the Super Eights (after all, not many Australians will want to watch Bangladesh-Ireland). Now, however, they're only showing the Australia-SA semi-final. I mean come on. If Australia don't make the final, will they still show it!?

    I'm really glad I have Foxtel - and I'm sure all of cricketweb is too, or you'd see the most repetitive, annoying and boring rants from me every single time a game was being played. It's quite a disgrace really.

    Did they have the rights to show the other semifinal?

    They have the rights for the whole World Cup IIRC. Then again, I could be wrong; they may have just bought the rights for Australian games, but still, you'd think that given it's the World Cup, they'd broadcast at least both semi-finals.

    I feel really bad for all you guys back in Australia, i think the SL v/s NZ would be a cracker of a game and i just can't understand how can Channel 9 be not showing a semi-final of a WC, i mean its crazy!!


    So isn't any other channel showing the WC semi-final either?


    Anyways just can't wait for the NZ V/S SL encounter for me the real WC starts now.

    Foxtel (Pay-TV) is showing it, and has in fact shown every single world cup game live (even the ones that clashed) which has been great. There has been very minimal free-to-air coverage of it though.

    I do have sympathy for Aussies stuck with Channel Nine, but that's the problem with teeestial TV. It's ratings driven. That's why in the UK when C4 had Test cricket it had to start earlier so they could show the truly appaling "Hollyoaks" at 6.30 pm without risk of iit being postponed by the overunning cricket.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    I'm not sure I see your point there. I'm quite sure no-one would enjoy the repetitive rants that would be posted every day if I did not....
