Swings and round abouts.. these players have all played each other 349309483904839048390483 times in the last 3 years... and they *can* play murali.
To be honest if we had won the last game vs SL i would not be rating our chances.. but having lost it i am more confident (Just watching at how these 2 teams have played each other in the last few years)

Yeah we do.. but we *can* play him and have in the past...
i wouldnt say we r "simply hopeless" against him...
Yeah Taylor and Flem have both looked like Vass's bunnies just recently.
I think the Kiwis get intimidated by Murali, their decision to bat 1st against Lankans was further proof of that.
On the other hand Aussies attack Murali and put him under pressure from the word go by using their feet, but all the Kiwi batsmen play Murali from within the crease which leads to trouble for the Kiwi batsmen.
Partyush, What makes you think mate that Sri Lanka would be able to beat New Zealand in Jamaica (because thats where 2nd v/s 3rd semi-finalist would have their semi-finals) , i would have rated Lankan chances a lot more on a slow and low surface at St. Lucia compared to Jamaica (which has been seamer friendly so far).
