This will be a pretty epic clash - SL won the first round and look to be the team in better form. Malinga the Slinga being back will be a huge bonus for them. Plus Jayasuriya, Jayawardene and Silva are all averaging 50+.

NZ were hammered by OZ last match but they have shown an ability to bounce back from thrashings and be competitive in subsequent matches. Styris is in great form (averaging an absurd 92 with the bat and has 9 wickets @ 26 with the ball) and with Bond back (12 wickets @ 12 in the WC) NZ will have an extra edge to their bowling attack.

Should be a great contest.

SL: Sanath Jayasuriya, 2 Upul Tharanga, 3 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 4 Mahela Jayawardene (capt), 5 Chamara Silva, 6 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 7 Russel Arnold, 8 Chaminda Vaas, 9 Muttiah Muralitharan, 10 Dilhara Fernando, 11 Lasith Malinga.

NZ: Stephen Fleming (capt), 2 Peter Fulton, 3 Ross Taylor, 4 Craig McMillan, 5 Scott Styris, 6 Jacob Oram, 7 Brendon McCullum (wk), 8 James Franklin, 9 Daniel Vettori, 10 Jeetan Patel, 11 Shane Bond.

Very even match-up, perhaps the 2 best Bowling Attacks in the world and no doubt the 2 best spin-pace combos. Vettori-Bond vs Murali-Vass.

SL's bowling and fielding is much better than current WI. England won deservedly thanks to two great innings played by Vaughan and Pietersen.

As I write this, another poor lbw decision has gone against SL.. if Jayawardene can stay till the end they can possibly get to 270.

132 runs in the last 14 overs, at 9.43. Maintaining such a high RR for 14 overs is very tough...SL definitely has snatched the momentum away. Scoring 290 against Murali would be tough.

This has to be one of Jayawardene's best. Starting slow, settling in, rebuilding an innings, staying in, scoring his ton and finishing. This innings has all the best elements. What a pleasure to see this...

I guess that's why SL didn't bowl Murali, Vaas against Aussies...it will be a different game..but Aussies don't care they have 5-6 Styris, Flemmings and Mcs like players.
So SL has to think something else against them. Also Jaya needs to bat sensibly.

I got that 15 bucks for month deal too bro, it is just recently they installed something over the network and that windows media does not work anymore. So want to know how you got your windows media working for the streambox channel at work.

This was not a real bouncy wicket, it was a spinning wicket. final in Barbados, where Bangladesh got stripped naked by everybody. SL batsmen will have a tough time and their spinner nothing on their favor.

was this wicket bouncy, or was it spinner frinedly. I hear the pitch changing to spinners condition in the second innings, but is this as bouncy as Barbados?
