So now that my first, second and third teams are out of the world cup, and the finals are 90% fixed (by fate, not by bookies), I'm lacking motivation to watch this game. Then again, it's the world cup finals, you can't miss it.

rooting for OZ just to see a 3-peat...but an SL win would also be nice...i just don't like supporting other subcontinent teams except pak (on occaision).

ALA = AminoLevulinic Acid (ALA) is a kind of amino acid found naturally in organisms.
PALA = PALA is an international academic association for those who work in stylistics, poetics, and associated fields of language and linguistics
Pandey=Its a countdown show with Mr and Mrs. Pandey from Kareena Kareena

Hula= Hula is a traditional Hawaiian dance well-known for its gracefulness and expressiveness, which you may have seen highlighted recently in Lilo and Stitch.
Hola=It means “hello” in Spanish
Hondey= Its a place in Niger.

Pela=It is a test to determine the proficiency in English, at an agreed minimum level.
Mola=A textile made by sewing layers of colored cloth together to form patterns.
Manday= I think its Monday

I think what Bhaigna meant is:

Its Friday, already the countdown and 'chilla -pilli' started ... amino acid running through the viens... fills like dancing with Kareena Kapor....now all those bombardment of all bold prediction will start, fans will start arguing with each other will start compaining about their opponent's lack of stylistics and poetics expression. Then during the match Mahela and Murali will start their Hula dance...... and then just after the game is over....the winner will celebrate and say "Hello' and on the other side the looser will hide in Niger in shame. But one thing is for sure: the winning captain have to be very proficient in English, on the other hand the loosing team will have a national flag looks like a textile made by sewing layers of colored cloth together to form patterns. And from Manday, It's the 1st day to talk about WC2011.

I think this will be a very close match - Tom Moody is a good coach and he will have primed SL to peak for this tournament. These two have clearly been the two most consistent teams in the WC.

I suppose we're the favourites - but that doesn't mean anything. Past form doesn't count for anything anymore either. It will come down to who plays better on the day, over the 100 overs.

Good Work on the Template HB:up: The only way this tournament can be salvaged is an extremely EXTREMELY close match... Id love to see something like the Javed Miandad six off the last ball...Theres a 0.0001% chance of that happening though. Lets hope for a close match irrespective of who lifts the cup.

australia win the toss and they will have a bat first. not surprised really, despite the weather condition n all.. the pitch is still intact as it was mostly covered during the rain.

oh, it started to rain again.. no words on over-curtailing yet...

10.15am It's really rather nasty now, people huddled under umbrellas and most trying to find shelter under the stands. The only people dry (on the outside) are those packed in the corporate boxes. If we don't start soon then we will start docking overs ... and if we don't start soon then Percy Sonn may start singing.

11.15am Covers on, drizzle in the air. The corporate guests have now been inside their air-conditioned and booze-laden boxes for three hours. Even if the match starts today, none of them are likely to notice. Outside, the authorities have taken things in hand and turned up the volume on the music. Gnasher suggests they have only done so to drown out the sound of Percy Sonn belting out "My Way" in the ICC bolt hole.

ALA = AminoLevulinic Acid (ALA) is a kind of amino acid found naturally in organisms.
PALA = PALA is an international academic association for those who work in stylistics, poetics, and associated fields of language and linguistics
Pandey=Its a countdown show with Mr and Mrs. Pandey from Kareena Kareena

Hula= Hula is a traditional Hawaiian dance well-known for its gracefulness and expressiveness, which you may have seen highlighted recently in Lilo and Stitch.
Hola=It means “hello” in Spanish
Hondey= Its a place in Niger.

Pela=It is a test to determine the proficiency in English, at an agreed minimum level.
Mola=A textile made by sewing layers of colored cloth together to form patterns.
Manday= I think its Monday

I think what Bhaigna meant is:

Its Friday, already the countdown and 'chilla -pilli' started ... amino acid running through the viens... fills like dancing with Kareena Kapor....now all those bombardment of all bold prediction will start, fans will start arguing with each other will start compaining about their opponent's lack of stylistics and poetics expression. Then during the match Mahela and Murali will start their Hula dance...... and then just after the game is over....the winner will celebrate and say "Hello' and on the other side the looser will hide in Niger in shame. But one thing is for sure: the winning captain have to be very proficient in English, on the other hand the loosing team will have a national flag looks like a textile made by sewing layers of colored cloth together to form patterns. And from Manday, It's the 1st day to talk about WC2011.

11.50am So, 38 overs each, three bowlers can bowl eight overs, two seven, and the third Powerplay is ditched. The pitch is bone dry, there's a breeze blowing across the ground ...

11.45am Massive cheers as the last of the covers comes off, and the Sri lankans come onto the outfield to warm-up ... again. "At least the raindrops have been musical," says a bored Andrew Miller. "The one dripping next to me fits the soca rhythm very nicely ..." Now we are told a 12.15pm start and 38 overs a side. Believe it when it happens.

Gilchrist's 149 is the highest score in World Cup finals, beating Ricky Ponting's 140 in 2003. It's also the highest score by a wicketkeeper-batsman in World Cups, beating Rahul Dravid's 145 at Taunton in 1999.

Who thought 430 by Australia could be chased by South Africa? Nobody. Similarly, you never know what SL will do. They may fail, but there's a small possibility that they may be successful. I want them to take the game as close as possible if not win it. Only time will tell.

36.3 Malinga to Clarke, no run, Clarke drives it to cover and sets off for an easy single, but hang on, Aleem Dar signals dead ball and asks the batsmen to go back, I think he's penalising Clarke for running on the pitch
