    After the NZ SA QF I am not too sure what to predict in this match. I thought it would have been a walk in the park for SA but they have been kicked out of the tournament.

    NZ's bowling attack is pretty decent. Depends on how their batsmen tackle the SL spinners

    But SL win emphatically today so SL still the favorites for me
    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

    The team that would give a chance to win against SRL

    Guptill
    McCullum Brendon
    Ryder
    Taylor
    Styris
    Kane Williamson
    Oram
    McCullum Nathan
    Vettori
    Southee
    McKay

    I would like to see McKay replacing Woodcock...We just need this left-arm bowling variation against SRL, otherwise, we look too predictable.

    We survived against SAF with that bowling is bcoz of the pitch and as they are a bit vulnerable to spin. But, SRL will be lot different...We can counter them with good pace attack..We badly need McKay at this point..Tuffey has been bad and can easily be scored off and he is no more a wicket taking bowwleer considering his recent performances

    Hope he is fit.
    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 couldn't have asked for a better draw. Both QF and SF against lesser fancied teams and both on the same home ground. Should walk away with this one too. NZ capable of putting in gritty performance but they will have to play at at least 200% potential to win this one.

    Ryder to biff a few runs and NZ to put in another fighting performance with no real stars IMO.

    Agree with all of that. Even though Woody bowled reasonably well against SA, I don't think his style of bowling will trouble the SL batsmen at all. Throw in McKay as a little surprise selection and to add variety to the attack.

    Yes, that's true. After NZ's performance in the quarters, one cannot write them off. But you have to feel they will find it much tougher to expose the same weaknesses in SL that they laid bare open against SA. Definitely go in with nothing to lose, however.

    Well, I was careful not to say that. On skills and ability 3 of the 4 QFs were a mismatch. Made prediction only for 2 of them. With SA there was a big 'if' of pulling their act together in knock out game. No such problems with SL. Huge, huge favorites going into this one.
