    Yeah, thats what I thought.
    Jaya seems to have a real case of the nerves...captain in a WC SF is getting to him, I think. His fellow batsmen falling around him isnt helping either.

    Its a shame Silva went, he looked like he was the only once capable of uping the ante.

    Agreed. IMO they need 270+ to edge the game in their favour.
    240 - 260 will just about give their bowlers enough to defend.

    Anything over 250 I'll be getting very nervous about, but I can see their bowlers defending 220 quite easily if the batsman had a big collapse.

    FILOCRICKET. If you are going to just be a pest then take it somewhere else. Others are trying to enjoy the game. Thanks

    Yep, agreed. NZ don't play Vaas, Murali or Malinga at all well judging by history. I always expected this game to be fairly low scoring.

    **** me, how old are you? Seriously. No I can't afford Pay TV because, you know, I'm a uni student making **** all money. I mean, I've only had dinner twice this week so far, about about 6 meals this week. Might just go spend that money on some Foxtel.

    Our fielding has been very average today.

    The kiwi fielding performance has been absolutely dire.

    And we have in front of us one of the most tragic wastes of cyberspace since Rodgie, who actually appears to be innocent of this particular aberration, hailing as it does from a completely different part of Australia.

    I'm going to back and delete virtually the last two pages of verbal diarrhoea as they add about as much to the atmosphere of this thread as Norman Tebbitt does to a Northern Working Mens' Club. There are plenty of places available if you want to gain a few inches by banging off your own nationalistic bigotry, but here isn't one of them.

    Please spare me your attempt at humour/abuse in riposte. It won't offend or insult anyone but what scant dignity you have remaining. Cheers.

    Yeah, the score has really crept up on me. Sri Lanka looking in a good position for 270ish.

    Which should be a very very good score.
