This is a huge game for Bangladesh as it will determine if we can still have a shot at going to the final. Go Lanka go!!!!!!!!!

How? Whats the equation currently? What kind of result will favor BD?

India needs to lose today, so that the next game against Bangladesh becomes a virtual semi-final. Masrafee always does well in comeback games, so i still have hope for the last game.

Yeah, what cricket pagol said. We need India to lose and then we need to beat them in our next match. Then, we will both be 1-3 and it will go down to NRR.

TOM-JOAD

The Idea is to go out and smack as much as possible and let the middle order get some batting practice.

Jayawardne is out of form and robbing the chance from youngester. Specially Chandimal.

Masrafee always does well in comeback games, so i still have hope for the last game.I'm thinking it might be better if India won today. That would make the next match meaningless, and I think Bangladesh would have a much better chance to beat India then.

Antora

Is the pitch a lil different today or something? coz, Bangladesh usually lost their first wicket scoring 40+ ( bating first) and here Lanka is 89/6? WTH? WHY? OMG! :'(
All my hopes gone down the drain!!!!
Sanga, why why why??? you doing this to us..WHY? :(

May be this is the silver lining for not qualifying for the final!

These two teams are never serious about this game.. knowing that we are already in finals, Sanga wanted to see how things play out for the team. My only regret is we didnt play chandimal.

actually that is completely in correct. we have had decent scores against these bowling line-ups and batted first every single time to put up fairly good scores. if SHakib had taken the chance maybe we wud even pulled off a win. less pessimism and more hope may mean we actually have a chance in the future.

Why are fans here so against Jayawardena, once Sangha is captain, jayawardena will be in the 2011 squad. I feel that Jayasuria and Murali will be out, these two should retire gracefully, especially jayasuria. He should bow out and give a young guy a chance, after all he has had his time and glory.
The SL board will have to kick him out.

what's it with sub-continental players that they want to extend their careers on and on ?
they have to be kicked out which is a disgrace to these greats and their fans.
almost everyone from kapil, gavaskar to wasim did it. inzy, ganguly and kumble being the only exceptions.

You have gone horribly wrong with your list and I can only assume you haven't seen much of a cricket until after the 90s. Even his stringent critics and detractors will tell you that Gavaskar was still one of the best in the business when he retired and he retired on his terms. Not only that, he also resisted appeals from BCCI and prominent cricketers to come back out of retirement. He refused steadfastedly. His last 10 tests had 2 centuries and 3 scores in 90s (and a few more 50s). His last inning was an epic 96 on the dustbowl of Bangalore, an inning that is still applauded by former Indian and Pakistani greats - it almost single-handedly saw India home. His second-last ODI was a match-minning 100 that had seen furious assault from a man who was known to be an accumulator.

I wouldnt be surprised if SL preferred to play India in the final than Bangladesh.

They have played India alomost 20 times in the last 18 months and they both know each other.

On the other hand, there was every chance that we could shock them if they batted first; their batting has collapsed in crunch situations when batting first a bit too frequently over the last few months.
