    Rooting for SL here though got a gut feeling that India may win this. Every team I've supported has lost so far

    Malinga looks out of sorts and middle order still sucks. Thankfully Sanga and Dilshan looks good so far though.

    too bad these two teams have no recent history between them that we can use to...
    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

    Can't hardly wait for the final... so we can get to the real deal after that.

    Haha surely all permutations and combinations of possible results have already been explored by the multitude of matches these two have had against each other? Surely?

    Factoid: In all formats since July 2008, India have played Pakistan twice (not including today), but they've played Sri Lanka 43 times.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Worst final ever. We've seen enough ffs. There is not a single thing any of the players could do that would be surprising in the slightest to any other player, the staff, or the viewing public.

    What would exactly be the gameplan?

    India firm favorites, but how I would love a repeat of 96. To beat India at home again, would be so epic.

    BTW, Murali's last game and needs 4 wickets to surpass McGrath as the greatest wicket taker in WC.
    Last time Murali faced India in his last test close to a milestone, this happended. Might as well make it symmetric and finish off in style in ODI's well, with a SL win

    Are they planning to drop silva or what? Perera should play instead of Crappu/Silva for mine.

    Makes the tail even worse, Perera shouldn't bat higher than 8. I should think they'll bring in another seamer, so drop Herath for him or Kulasekera.

    SL are big favourites as they are by far the best all-round side in subcontinental conditions in the comp

    They have quality batsmen, bowlers and fieldsmen whilst India only excel in one discipline

    I hope so. But they seem so reluctant to go with a 6-5 combination, despite the seventh batsmen being so bad. Would be curious to see if Mendis plays as well. He has been bowling well recently.

    Kulasekera just doesn't match up well against India. As much as it pains me to say this Fernando is probably a better option.
