I support neither team. So, I will be able to enjoy the cricket instead of being anxious -- just like I managed to enjoy the India-Pakistan semi-final. But I get the feeling the match may turn out to be very one-sided. That's the last thing the cricket world needs after three very one-sided WC finals.

SRI LANKA!!!!!

Disagree

Zaheer has had a better WC than Malinga
Murali ahead of Harbhajan
Yuvraj in this tournament equal of Mendis
Ashwin equal of Herath
Matthews slightly ahead of Nehra/Patel

I actually think the bowling lineups are neck and neck, especially with the pitch that will be prepared.

In terms of batting

SL strength is with

Tharanga
Dilshan
Jaya
Sanga

the rest have been a real disappointment, with matthews being the exception.

As for India

Sehwag
Tendulkar
Gambhir
Raina
Yuvraj

Have been in good form, with Kohli in the last couple of match and Dhoni struggling.

So this really is anyones match, but playing at home, India slight favourites in my books.

India have had many great players in the "lost" generation (the India team in the 90s and early 00s) who didnt win a world cup; legends like Dravid, Ganguly and Kumble are all players who will never have won a world cup, a bit funny when you consider that Nehra and Harbhajan who are from the same generation could win the cup.

For Sri Lanka, almost all their good players were either there in 1996 or will be there now. The only exception is Atapattu.

If you just count the number of wickets each bowler has taken and rank them then even Dilshan is neck to neck with Harbajan Singh. Sure Zaheer Khan is statistically better than Malinga but you also have to look at crucial spells. Malinga in the semi finals was 3/55 in 9 overs. You might say he was expensive but you have to look at his third spell to realize that he's the one who triggered the NZ collapse at the end.

Yuvraj Singh is having a good run these days. Indians are exceptional against spin but Sri Lankans are also very good players of spin. Yuvraj might've picked crucial wickets but he's not consistent. At the end of the day, his bowling average is still 37. So will Yuvraj's bowling really work in the final?

And for it all to work, you have to look at how well do bowlers compliment each other. For that you have to look at how many runs each team conceded thus far. India let Bangladesh score 283 and England score 338 on them. Both were batting second under lights. It was a while ago and they might've gotten better, but we'll have to wait and see. All I'm saying is you can't compare bowlers or bowling units based upon the number of wickets they have taken.

Mendis's job is to be accurate and economical. Which he has done so far with an economy rate of 19, so I think he will probably play the final.

-Zaheer has been THE crucial bowler for India, he has taken wickets in his opening spell, come back in the middle overs to break up dangerous partnerships(the wicket of Hussey against Australia in the QF) and taken wickets at the death.

-Yuvraj and his consistency, which is precisely why i added, 'in this tournament'

- I don't think I did compare the bowling lineups purely on numbers, now that I think about it, I didn't compare any of them by their statistical prowness, more on influence in this tournament. Which is why I put Matthews ahead of Nehra and Patel, in actual fact, they might have more wickets(I haven't checked).

Basically you're saying what I'm saying, there is very little between the two teams, on paper this is a very even match. Which is exactly what a final should be, with no CLEAR favourite.

I simply disagreed with the poster who said SL had a MUCH BETTER bowling and batting attack, specially in these conditions.

Chaminda Vaas on stand-by for World Cup final

Press Association

Last Updated: Mar 31, 2011
Chaminda Vaas has not featured for Sri Lanka in an ODI since 2008.


Sri Lanka are to fly out the veteran left-armer Chaminda Vaas and the spinner Suraj Randiv as cover ahead of the World Cup final amid injury concerns over Muttiah Muralitharan and Angelo Mathews.

Spin legend Muralitharan is set to play the last match of his illustrious international career in Saturday’s Mumbai showpiece against India and marked his final delivery in his home country by taking the wicket of New Zealand’s Scott Styris.

But he has struggled throughout the tournament with a succession of niggling injuries, most notably knee and hamstring problems.

Mathews, meanwhile, was forced off by a thigh problem while fielding in the semi-final victory over the Black Caps and was forced to bat using Mahela Jayawardene as a runner.

Vaas would be an ideal replacement for Mathews, with his left-arm seam and useful runs from the lower middle-order. The 37-year-old pondered retiring from international cricket after being omitted from his country’s 15-man squad for the tournament.

Randiv, 26, will be available to deputise for Muralitharan should the 39-year-old not make it. It seems inconceivable, however, that a man who has taken 534 ODI wickets and a further 800 in Tests would not be patched up for a 350th and final appearance in the format.

No request has yet been made to officially add either player to the squad, the International Cricket Council confirmed to Press Association Sport, but they will fly out later today and will be available if required.

Meanwhile, Simon Taufel and Aleem Dar have been appointed as the on-field umpires for the final.

The pair have, between them, been named as the ICC’s Umpire of the Year for the last six years, with Taufel winning the award from 2004 to 2008 and Pakistan’s Dar taking the honours for the two years since.

Dar stood in the 2007 final between Australia and Sri Lanka, which ended in a farcical bad light misunderstanding, but Australian Taufel has had to wait for his chance due to his country’s presence - and victories - in the previous three finals.

England’s Ian Gould and another Australian, Steve Davis, will serve as third and fourth umpires respectively, while New Zealand’s Jeff Crowe has been named as the match referee.

http://www.thenational.ae/sport/cricket/chaminda-vaas-on-stand-by-for-world-cup-final


So while they might not play, and are being brought in as emergency cover, it highlights how restricted Matthews and Murali are atm...

I suppose people will continue to say SL has the much better bowling lineup going into the match in less than 48 hours time. Remember Matthews went off the field injured, and while batting, did so the entire match with a runner. He won't be allowed a runner against India(pre existing injury), and we all saw how stiff Murali has been the last couple of matches, not really powering into his delivery stride, so missing a bit of fizz from his bowling.

DJ Sahastra
March 31, 2011, 09:47 AM
I think this match-up is evenly balanced as far as the two teams are concerned.

Bowling: SL team has an edge over India as far as bowling goes. Malinga, Murali and Mendis, in the same order, are all impact players. Regardless of what kind of World cup they have had so far, they can rip through any side when they get going and win the match single-handedly. Indian bowlers, on the other hand, are at best effective and can only hunt in a pack. They also rely on helpful condition. Advantage Sri Lanka.

Batting: India team has an edge over SL in batting. Sehwag, Yuvraj, Pathan, and to a lesser extent on current form, Sachin - are all impact players. They can take the game away in a matter of few overs. Gambhir, Kohli and Sachin provide the solidity along with run-scoring prowess as good as anyone. For the SL side, Jaya and Sanga provide the solidity. Dilshan (and to a lesser extent, Sanga and Agnelo) are impact players. Collectively, i feel their batting is strong but untested in this World cup and lacks the pedigree. Advantage India.

Fielding: SL has a definite edge on this one.

Pressure: Sri Lanka hasn't demonstrated a good ability to handle pressure in the two games that they were really tested - against Pakistan and against NZ (though they eventually won against NZ). India showed that in ample terms in its last 2 crunch encounters. But then the pressure of playing in front of the home-crowd should even that out. Advantage - none.

Overall - the two teams are evenly matched. India is dashing and mercurial on the batting side and above average in bowling. Sri Lanka is dashing and mercurial on the bowling side and has a decent or more than decent batting line-up. It is simply a matter of who shows up on that day.

Beamer
March 31, 2011, 10:45 AM
Pretty much agree with you DJ. I will also give the bowling edge slightly to SL. They are a varied attack. Fielding edge goes to SL as well. But, India has a definite edge in batting, as you have mentioned. When you have Raina coming at no.7, that says a lot. It is also a batting line up mixed with experience and youthful good batsmen. SL has a little worry in their armour that has gone unnoticed. Their batting is very top heavy. Top four has won them games and they have scored heavily. They remind me a bit of South Africa. If you can get past Mahela early, I am not sure if Thilan at no.5 and an out of sorts Chamara at no.6 can win you games. Angelo is good at no.7, but he is battling injury. I think, if India can manage to get to top four, the game is India's to lose. That said, its a pretty even contest. India has all the pressure of winning at home. I think India escaped with a bad batting performance against Pak. SL wont spill regulation catches either. Batting first is also showing an obvious advantage in this WC. I think India wins in the end and the Legend hoists the much deserved cup.

If SL wants to win it they have to get Shewag out early and ofcourse Tendu...Yuvi is also winning matches for Ind...
Murali's injury came at the wrong time but hope other spinners will compensate that loss...If Tharanga Dilshan can give good start there is chance othewise SL middleorder is not doing good job.

March 31, 2011, 05:01 PM
Bharat Mata is going to administer a beating on a relatively untested Lankan side in Mumbai. I base this on the following:

1.) Excluding Mendis debut (Asia Cup and Test Series in Lanka) he has a piss poor record vs India. Don't expect him to trouble India in the finals which will be a major blow to Lanka.

2.) Sri Lanka (excluding asia cup where he took 6-13) has a piss poor record in ODIs vs Inida.

3.) Most importantly Sri Lanka have not been put under pressue during this tournament. You typically find in most competition that teams who coast through crumble in the face of pressure. India conversely are a tried and tested unit. Their matches vs Pak, England, SA and Australia will do them wonders come Mumbai.

4.) Sri Lanka has a very weak middle order. Matthews (is not 100% fit), Chamara Silva and Flat track bully Samarweera have not been tested this WC. To expect them to preform on the big stage if Lanka are in trouble may be too much to ask.

5.) Murali is not 100% - enough said.

March 31, 2011, 05:48 PM
I think India escaped with a bad batting performance against Pak.

I disagree in that wicket after the first 15 overs became difficult as the ball was stopping.precisely why tendulkar was not his usual fluent self.

so they had to gauge a safe score by their instincts and raina at the end said "260 was good enough on this wicket".it was reasonably safe,though not unreachable.

however we were not prepared well enough vs riaz and ajmal, both largely unfamiliar to us. it could have been easier if we could read ajmal as we do to mendis nowadays

You guys sicken me. I thought this was cricket! I thought this was world cup! Just because BD is not playing, all of a sudden whole forum is dead? Where was all your ultra-zealous nationalistic chest-thumping before Bangladesh got test status? Don't tell me you didn't support the sub-continent teams.

I know everyone is privy to their hates and superhates, but to hate the sub-continent teams shows total insecurity issues.

As for me, I am looking forward to a great contest. Once a commie snubbed Shastri about his support when the latter curtly replied: "I am here for a good game of cricket." And that's how it should be.... But alas! people have been overloading the sports variable with too much of their pathological fears that takes the charm and purity out of the sport.

From a fb post:

‎"Two engineering students were walking across campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on
this bike.... She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."

The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fit you.""

Now Dhoni will be happy with the bike I think provided that he is also an engineer.

A tale of three neighbors:
neighbor "A" used to live in my upstairs flat for 25 years (despite having his own bigger home not too far away); he refused to pay rent and would extort half my salary.. when i asked him to leave, he destroyed my home but i got him out.. this was 40 years ago but he's never apologized since..

neighbor "B" uses his BB gun to fire pellets in my window for no good reason from time to time.. he's also constructed a big ugly fence so i stay away from him yet hes constantly breathing down my neck to keep an eye on what i do and who i welcome to my home..

- neighbor "C" lives all the way in the other end of the neighborhood so we rarely meet.. ive heard he's got a violent temper and is quite brutal with his brother-in-law who lives in a tiny room upstairs from him..he leaves me alone though

moral of the story: when India, Pakistan or Sri Lanka play against one another, who can you support as a Bangladeshi?

Also, the IPL team formations meant that Dhoni and Raina have batted a lot against Murali in practice sessions probably, and Sachin against Malinga so that takes away quite a bit of the surprise factor for Indian batsmen

Too many Tendulkar love on this forum, the guy is over-idolised.

Good point Nafi! I think Tamim and Shakib faced a similar problem hence they underperformed this world cup :(

it is ok. it is in their early stage of their career, They are young. eventually they should learn to deal with fans and media professionally. They must learn to grow out of it! people were basically fueling their arrogance and end result we saw it on the big screen!

Similar reasons why People like Ashraful, Aftab, Kapali underperformed in international cricket contrary to their natural talent methinks!

From CI:
1355 It's a rather small ground is the Wankhede. Largest boundary is 76 meters, the smallest is 58. Nasser Hussain, on Star Cricket, says the pitch is dying to turn. Ganguly says there isn't enough grass cover, but the little moisture in it will make the new ball seam. You'd want to bat first though. Ganguly reckons India will play three quicks.
Sreesanth is marking his run-up now. So that is a pretty strong indicator ...
1345 The Wankhede has gone from 5% full to 70% full in about an hour. The teams are going through their paces, warming-up, taking catches. The Indians are on the east, the nosier side of the ground. The Sri Lankans on the west, where it's relatively quieter. And between them, there's that bare, brown 22-yard strip both captains will hope to win the toss on. In an ideal world, the pitch will confer no advantage on the team winning the toss. But it isn't an ideal world, is it?
"Zaheer getting his legs stretched so much that if anyone did this to us we would roll over and howl for mummy," says Sharda. Sreesanth is bowling on the practice wickets. Zaheer and Munaf are marking their run-ups on the match pitch. Sreesanth isn't marking his run up yet. The plot thickens.
1330 All the experts on Star Cricket are saying Ashwin ahead of Sreesanth. Dhoni has indicated a preference for three seamers, though, so your guess is as good as mine. I do think Sri Lanka will make a few changes to their team though. Toss in 30 minutes.
1315 Both these teams had a chance to win a World Cup in the 21st century but failed against the might of a marauding Australian batsman. In 2003, Ricky Ponting plundered a century of breathtaking aggressiveness, leaving my common room in college - and common rooms everywhere in India - shell shocked. In 2007, Adam Gilchrist, with squash ball in batting glove, blitzed Sri Lanka with a century more devastating than Ponting's. I never played fantasy cricket after that final.

April 2, 2011, 03:35 AM
Toss 1400: There's some confusion over who's won the toss. What drama. And they are doing a re-toss. No one heard who called what the first time. Kumar Sangakkara has won the re-toss and Sri Lanka will bat, a massive moment.
Sreesanth is in, playing ahead of R Ashwin for the injured Ashish Nehra. That's the only change India have made from the team that beat Pakistan in the semi-final.
Sri Lanka have made a glut of changes. Mathews, Mendis, Herath and Chamara Silva are out. Perera, Randiv, Kulasekara and Chamara Kapugedera are playing the final. So they've gone for more firepower in their middle order.
How much will be enough? "Anything we get on the board will be good enough," says Sangakkara. That's the best answer to that question I've heard.
I don't know how he manages it so often, here's early bird Mark Kidger: "I think that India will win, but I'd like to see Sri Lanka pull off a surprise after two near misses. People tend to obsess on India, but what Sri Lanka have achieved since 1982 with far fewer resources and with all the problems that the country has had is nothing short of miraculous. Who would begrudge Muttiah Muralitharan a spectacular send-off?"

Sanga called, nobody heard. Its not his fault. While they were trying to figure out who called what and the winning side of the coin was already shining bright on the ground, IF Sanga wanted, he could have easily gone for that. He didnt.

He did the right thing by going for a re toss. Every party involved should be clear about what's going on. If any confusion, redo it. The two captains and the match referee was standing next to each other. Its not Sanga's fault nobody heard him. Im sure he wasn't just mumbling it. Apparently, it was too noisy.

This is world cup finals, the mother of all battles. Everything is fair and square.
If anyone should be blamed, it should be the match referee for failing to do his job properly.
All he was asked to go out in the middle and hear who called head/tails and then go back to his air conditioned cocoon. But he failed to do that.
I'm not gonna blame Sanga for that.

Winning is everything.

This is just in: Replays of the toss indicate decisively that Sangakkara called heads the first time as well, and the call is audible to the television producers. In the noise, Dhoni mis-heard it as a 'tails' call. It was why he turned towards Shastri saying, "we'll bat." However neither Shastri nor Crowe had heard Sangakkara's call, Crowe due to the noise, while Shastri was looking up at the coin. Shastri looked across to Crowe, the referee said, "I didn't hear it." There was then a brief conversation and it was decided the toss had to be held again.

Hey guys! Looks like I'm supporting Lanka like most of you guys.

What do you thik the tactic should be? I think try to hold onto this wicket for another 6 overs for another 45 runs. Then take powerplay in over 41 and go for 9 an over if not more.

Without looking at the pitch, I think Sri Lanka can reach 300.

Are the Bangladeshi cricketers watching? This is how ODI batting should be approached. When the bowling is good, sweat it out. Timing and placement can yield more boundaries than ugly heaves and scoops. Singles and doubles can get the scoreboard ticking at six an over.

Shouldn't matter as long as the impact is in line with the stumps. Unless of course it pitches outside the leg stump.

Would have been notout if the bowl wasn't hitting the middle stump

Things are not looking good for SL. India has a very strong batting line up. Gotta put some runs on the board....

nahaz
April 2, 2011, 07:19 AM
Revised target...Mahela to bat out the overs. If he stays Sri Lanka willget sth fairly good. If he attacks and gets out now (183/5 after 40) then Lanka is in big trouble. Not to play out he 50 overs would be a huge crime here. Every run will count.

Yes Bangladeshi batsmen should learn from this..but surely they wouldn't. That is the one thing I believe they can do consistently.

Holy crap!! India 7 overs behind the run rate!!!! If they do not get seriously penalised here you know the ICC stands for Indian Cricket Council. If runs can be awarded as penalties for breach of the spirit of the game, they definitely should be penalised in runs.

How about those middle class fans...students that were willing to save up for three months to watch this one? Or the young teachers or the young cricketers? It should be open to those who love it the most, not ones who just want to show their faces on tv for some gain or other. Same goes for Bangladesh during the ceremonies etc. with speeches and stuff.
