    Haha. Most of my friends have Foxtel, but none of them really like cricket that much, so I doubt they'd appreciate me being at their house till 3 am or so.

    As I had said a 100 pages ago (possibly in the Super 8 thread) you are not a Sri Lankan and probably a pretender claiming to be one with your deliberate mispronunciation and lack of commas and full stops.

    I stand by it still.
    Dear Mr. Jason
    One Thing may be correct my english knowledge not good as yours because I m a pure Sri Lankan My home town is Kaluthara I m working at Colombo every day I m traveling by Bus or
    train to Colombo as a sri lankans we talk lot about cricket we watch and I have played school level cricket I m expressing my view as true sri lankan. But I have doubt about your nationality If you are real sri lankan you should be Ranjith Fernando type Sri Lankan (Condak Nathi ) Oya try coranne Buwa wennade

    Since they are so even and SL won the last encounter,I get this uneasy feeling its going to be NZ this time...
    World Cup record between the two countries is also 3 wins each. Also in the last 2 years both sides have won 5 games each as I mentioned somewhere before. Absolutely nothing between the two.

    Am I right in assuming whoever wins the toss tonight will bowl first?

    To be fair, you'd find that the large majority of those 11,000 have never posted, or are now inactive. In terms of active members, it doesn't take too long before you know everyone (at least by their forum names).

    Oh my, the last couple of pages have been pure direness. Since SJS's post.

    Should be a good game tonight. The toss will be interesting. Sri Lanka will probably look to bat first if they win the toss, but what will NZ do? Will they do the obvious and bowl first, or will they show some balls and try setting a total. Last time they elected to bat first it turned into a shocker, but it doesnt mean its gonna happen again. I would rather see us bat first than second as chasing a big total against Murali and company is a lot harder than against the Aussies.

    I think the key players will be Jayasuriya and Murali for Sri Lanka, and Fleming and Bond for New Zealand. If Jayasuriya gets Sri Lanka off to a flyer it will put them in the box seat, and same with Bond with the ball. Fleming getting a big score will be important for New Zealand, his record against Vaas isnt that pretty, but he has to score against Vaas sometime. If Fleming falls to Vaas early New Zealand will be in big trouble, as Taylor also has a poor record against Vaas early on but likes the rest of the attack if he gets in. If New Zealand can set a platform that will allow the middle order to maybe play out Murali and avoid taking risks. So I would say 80-90 for the loss of 1-2 wickets after 20 overs would be a good platform.

    Ofcourse, Murali is the big dangerman for Sri Lanka. How the New Zealand top order handle Vaas and Malinga will determine how effective Murali can be. There has been all this fuss about NZ batsmen not being able to pick Murali, and Mark Waugh even said he was unplayable. I don't think that is that case. Maybe if the New Zealand top order get cleaned up cheaply, Murali can rip through the middle. But if Murali comes into bowl against Fleming and Taylor after 18-20 overs, then I think Murali might be a bit of a non-factor. New Zealand has looked to just play him out at 3-4rpo in the past, and in the recent home series (the Napier ODI) player Murali out for the whole 10overs only conceding a wicket in his last over.

    It will also be interesting to see who opens the bowling with Bond. Does anybody think Patel will do the job? Or maybe come on after Franklin gets pummeled by Sanath?

    Gonna be a cracker.

    Not nervous, I'm pretty confident we can pull off a win. It hasn't really struck me that this is knockout yet, halfway through the game I'll get nervous though.
