SL are favourites but I wouldn't be much surprised if an upset come out... also: can NZ finally reach WC final at their 6th (!) semifinal?
Last 100 off 29 balls was a unbelievable and fluke. You don't normally see bowlers bowling on Taylor's pad very often. But New Zealand has some very good players and cricket is a funny game. A good five over spell from Vettori may change the game and also Taylor or Oram could take the game away from them in five overs. But Sri Lanka is a very good side with many match winning performers. Since we don't have anything at stake, i am hoping for a good, close, nail-biting match
