    Mmmhmm, though Sri Lankas strength lies in their bowling, and Murli is good enough to get spin at any stage on any track so Sri Lanka are perfectly capable of winning from either position. But they all need to be on amazing form to pull it off. If any team can do this, it's Sri Lanka. Every nation bar Australia is surely on their side!

    --- our batsmen better not do any suicidal runs :argh:

    and yes :ditto: to tis_me_lord's post -- Murali is great coz hez a spinner and the Aussies should find it hard to bat against him - we still have Malinga and Fernando [who should hopefully be better this time!!!] + we have the ever faithful Jayasuriya and the return of Tilekaratne!

    Once again the aussies wrap up things easily. No matter how much we might dislike their arrogance one has to say they really put the money where their mouth is.

    Probably the best final, with the two best teams. Sri Lanka are capable of knocking the Aussies out of their stride. I'm going for a famous Sri Lankan win!

    They're such jerks- they go like they're not afraid of the Lankans. Mega prats.

    Why should they be afraid? They're close to 30 unbeaten WC games on the trot...

    Only difference to this Sri Lankan team they're going to play and the Sri Lankan team they have played on a few occasions during that unbeaten run is Lasith Malinga. I don't think anyone can really 'prepare' to play against him by watching vidoes etc. Everyone who's faced him has commented on how difficult he is to play and I doubt even the Aussie top order batsman will be any different. If he can produce a devastating opening spell like the one against NZ (ok he only got 1 wicket, but made Taylor/Fulton look like clowns) then we're in with a shout.

    They shouldn't. I know they shouldn't. But making such bumptious comments and exposing it out to the media just shows what hot-headed jerks they are. I sense a hint of complacency.

    Blackwell with the breakthrough! :cool:

    Hopefully Leicester will be all out for pretty much the same as we got, and we can just see who has the best second innings... Langer to get 315 again instead of 14. :p:
