Thank you, bro.
Sri Lanka is unfortunate to be in Group B in that the path to the Quarter Finals has been a cake walk and that has not prepared them for the business end of the tournament. The game against Australia was turning out to be a good match as Ponting so rightly said, and sadly for all, the match was washed out. In any case, to Sri Lanka's advantage, they take every team seriously; to them a victory against Kenya is as important as a victory over Australia.
In spite of today's loss, if England qualifies for the QFs, they would be more than prepared; then even tonight's loss would not count.
Bangladesh will definitely be in the semis this time. in fact winning the World Cup itself is not an unrealistic dream for them as I type.
