    While all the talk has been about other top teams, SL have flown under the radar a little, but they have shown good form and must be serious contenders for the cup.

    Who knows which England will turn up? But with England involved, it's bound to be an exciting game.

    Need our bowling to turn up big time.

    We did win the ODI series the last time we toured Sri Lanka, but of that team only Swann & Bell are still guaranteed to play! Colly, Bopara and Jimmeh all might, but wouldn't take bets on any of em.

    I'd love to say I'm confident and can see us brushing SL aside, I just can't. Murali will give us the usual problems and we'll need to find some answers to the other questions asked by their spinners. Morgan becomes a real key for us in those middle overs, and the Sangakkara and Jayawardene combination I expect to come to the party.

    It would be nice if we suddenly find a higher gear in the quarter-finals, just think our inconsistency and the dis-jointed problems we've endured so far will re-surface on Saturday. Really hope I'm wrong.

    I do get the feeling that the English players will have their long awaited dream fulfilled on Saturday..........a flight back home
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I got some inside information on the pitch, I am pretty sure it would be spin friendly.
    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

    England to win another cliffhanger.

    Srilanka are a very good side,but not one that is going to launch great fightbacks when they are down.England have shown they can do that.Srilanka will probably dominate 80% of the match,only to see England roll them over towards the end.

    Sri Lanka are yet to lift up their batting to acceptable levels. As usual it will be our bowlers who will pull through for us and hopefully get us into the semi's.

    Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka are a daunting proposition. England will have to be on top of their game for the entire hundred overs - something I can't see them doing.

    Prediction : Sri Lanka to win a thriller.

    Not going to predict this one at all. England have this extraordinary ability to match the standard of their play precisely to their opponents, so this could go anywhere.

    Some how feel that England will knock this SL'kan "fancied favorite" team out. England have been unpredictable, but when it really needed they have pulled it off. Would be mentally strong to pull another thriller than SL. The key is to bat first and get a decent total around 250 and the knock out pressure might roll SL off. Exciting game on the cards.
