    They've upped their fielding quite a bit in this tournament.

    I am going for SL but I think it's neck and neck, really.

    Not looking good for SL, Mathews is so damn important to the balance of the side.
    Only reason they brought in Randiv instead of Vaas, is they are expecting a spinning wicket and want to play 3 spinners.

    Tharanga
    Dilshan
    Sanga
    Jayawardena
    Samaraweera
    Silva/Kapu
    Perera
    Randiv
    Malinga
    Murali
    Mendis
    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

    India's best bet would be to go to either extreme in pitch preparation - either an absolute road that would make grown ups like Malinga and Murali cry, or one on which Harbhajan would be an absolute terror.

    If it is a pitch with a reasonable balance (even by current ODI standards) between bat and ball, Sri Lanka who have much the better balance would be fancied. IMHO, of course.

    yea but this is like Imran Farhat guiding a 4th innings run chase last summer.A fluke performance by a crap bowler, agree with Social Nehra is rubbish.

    Out of interest, can India also bring in someone who's not in the squad to replace Nehra(like Sri Lanka have brought in Randiv)?

    Last summer in SL, Nehra outbowled Zaheer & Praveen Kumar (probably the 2 best ODI seamers in India right now) on a couple of occasions. And that is not even invoking his 6-fors - has at least a couple of those - earlier on. Against SL he has a reasonable record of taking wickets (SR of 33), which is the key tomorrow.

    I would presume that If Sri Lanka are allowed to replace an injured player, India too would be allowed to do that.

    Don't see the Indian team management doing that, though if Praveen has magically regained his fitness there would be a strong case for bringing him in. Throughout the WC, this Indian team is playing with their cards very close to their chest. Indian players haven't mouthed off to the press of their own accord; their only press interactions so far has been restricted to instances where the ICC has mandated it. So I suppose we will never know for sure till the morning of the match.

    He was very good in the Asia Cup last year.

    that is a good stat maybe I am underrating him but I still feel Angelo for Lanka is a bigger loss then Nehra for India.

    What has Matthews done in this World Cup? Judging from the comments, I'd say two centuries and two fivers?

    Mathews is too much of a key player. Gets through a fair number of overs to cover for the 5th bowling option and also adds much needed finishing skills coming in at no.7.

    Hasn't really fired this tournament but I think he's done it often enough now to be taken seriously. just gives us that extra balance in the team.

    With Mathews SL can play 3 spinners and 7 batsmen in the same side.

    Plus he is the only good lower order bat we have, and great under pressure.

    Yup, Mathews is gun. I'd rather us call up a pure batsmen like Chandimal or Kausal Silva than Randiv tbh. Our bowling is fine without a 5th specialist.
