    Zimbabwe have a game in hand over Sri Lanka, and it's against Kenya, so if Sri Lanka lose there's a very good chance of them exiting early. I don't see it happening though. Zimbabwe will be sending down Price and Utseya as their main weapon and the Sri Lankans notably play spin very well.

    As Salman would say, Sri Lanka to rip Zimbabwe a new hole. Predict an absolute mauling for Zimbabwe.

    I expect the SL batsmen and bowlers to prosper.

    I for one remain amazed at the fact you've managed to get 4 predictions in a row.

    Expecting SL to be pushed very close here, see this as a potential upset, but not sure Zimbabwe will hold their nerve!

    SL will win this easily. Zimbabwe all out at 130-150.

    Of course I am looking forward to see the Mahela pic (the raised eyebrow) as he comes out to bat.

    Guy needs to really think of fixing the uni brow.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Sri Lanka to win and to win good. They lost to Zim last year but I can't think of another time they didn't beat a minnow and not beat them to a pulp whilst doing it.

    They will be under a bit of pressure to win this one so it will be interesting to see how they react to that. One or two early wickets for the Zimbabwe spinners would make it hard for the SL batsmen to take too many liberties in the power-play overs.

    I don't know what I'd do with Zimbabwe's eleven. Coventry really shouldn't be opening but Taylor aside neither should anyone else. Guess I'd just go with...

    Taylor
    Coventry
    Taibu
    Ervine
    Williams
    Chigumbura
    Lamb
    Utseya (I'd actually shunt him up the order if Zimbabwe were 4 down early)
    Cremer
    Price
    Mpofu

    Even though the balance isn't perfect at all, those are the only eleven in the squad I think should be in the squad at all, so I'm just gonna keep naming that lineup over and over I guess.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
