    When Jayasuriya firing in 96/97 Great Wasim Akram also said he has nothing to do with bowl

    What about Mr. Bond he is still young lad for Jayasuriya

    The last few posts have been dire really, after such a good post by SJS. What do emblems have to do with the match, seriously? And as for rpcfernando, can you get any more biased? There's a reason Jayasuriya only averages 33 - he's average.

    Who would win? Bats and balls are included of course.

    Half the New Zealand team are giants, and McCullum looks fiesty. Sri Lanka wouldn't have stood a chance if Lou "Looks like a bulldog" Vincent was there.

    I think in a big televised fight.

    New Zealand $1.40

    Sri Lanka $2.60
    would make that more like 12.60 for SL

    In that case, you should bet the house on New Zealand.

    Emblems are excellent. I judge all my team performances on them.
    Every single of any tournament. You see because they actually mean something, and the players are given a test before chosen for a team.

    While testing the Sri Lankan players, several people were dropped because they were just not "lion enough", some were to much like "tigers" perfect for Bangladesh, but not the kind of player they want in this team of Lions.

    All these attributes are tested. Its all science really. You really seem quite silly in ignoring these proven facts.

    Lion versus a Kiwi, the only way the Kiwi could win is if it choked. Simple logic don't ya think?

    Dont get too ahead of yourself you should focus more on the semi finals before Kangaroo hunting. SOUP FIRST BEFORE BBQ!! But theres a real possibility of two species of national lions being extinct in a space of a week:

    Last Tuesday saw the extinction of the English Lion, could it be Sri Lanka's turn today?
    Kangaroos forever alive, forever many, forever jumping

    And the direness rolls on. At least Athlai's post was sarcastic and somewhat funny, I suppose.

    Always like to see us chase. Especially against teams like Sri Lanka or Australia.

    I wish "average" Jayasuriya would come and play average for us.

    I know - you should bet on the fight with Athlai's bookmaking agency, is what I meant...

    Anyway, I'm tipping New Zealand (in the cricket, that is). Malinga is under-done and probably still somewhat injured, while Sri Lanka's fourth bowler, whoever it may be, will also be a problem. Their top order aside from Sangakkara will struggle with Bond IMO and their lower order doesn't even compare to that of the Kiwis. On the flip side, NZ have problems with their backup bowlers too, and their batsmen have traditionally played Murali and Malinga quite poorly, so it wouldn't shock me at all if Sri Lanka won. Still tipping NZ though.
