    I mean seriously, in a World Cup final, to behave like that! Sri Lanka have given up before the end.

    Needless shot Gautam. But even now Sri Lanka don't act as though that wicket changes anything.

    INCREDIBLE COMEBACK BY INDIA THOUGH! Sri Lanka have been the more impressive team this tournament, but India deserve to win this match and the World Cup because they have a spine.
    Murali doesn't exactly have brilliant recent ODI form against India.

    I agree with all that except when you say SL has been more impressive than India. I mean they played England and NZ to get to the final, hardly box office stuff. India did it the hard way and came out playing well. SL might not have even made it to the final if they faced Australia then Pakistan.

    NZ beat Pakistan by well over 100 runs

    SL belted NZ in the group games

    OZ completely suck right now

    SL are a lot better than all of them

    I emphatically agree beating New Zealand is nothing to brag about, but India collapsed ALL THE TIME in this World Cup. The shocking thing about this match is India haven't relied on Tendulkar, Sehwag and Singh. I mean India choked against England and South Africa.

    Sri Lanka always won their matches with their top four making tremendous scores. I mean every match they had a tremendous platform. And actually 270 should have been enough.

    Yeah they've just been abysmal for the most part in the field.

    Last roll of the dice.

    # Since the beginning of 2009 Muralitharan has 29 wickets at an average of 32.44 and economy rate of 4.76, well higher than his career average of 23.18 and economy rate of 3.92

    Good time to retire.

    INDIA
