Default Match Thread: England vs Sri Lanka

So, this should be a cakewalk for SL, but I'm hoping Eng will put up a fight and turn it into a game worth watching. If they get thrashed badly, I fear they will come down harder on us. I think an overconfident England is better for our prospect of upsetting them.

Great. In all likelihood, we will have West Indies and England coming down hard on us.

England's fast bowlers look threatening. We need to bowl first against them.

Yeah. Anderson is bowling pretty well, although it could be due to the pitch.

England will be crushed and deflated cause they can't hope to move on to the semis anymore. i don't care if they are pumped or not, if they come heavy or as a slouch, this is a WC game. If you can't perform you can't show any excuse. Give the credit to the opponents deserve.

3 game winning streak here we come.

The runrate slowed down a little bit. But still going at a good pace over 4. 56/1 in 14 overs.

England can win if Michael, Kevin, Colly scores 50s and 100s.

Yes, you are. I'm an SL fan too. If Bangladesh can't get the Cup, I want SL to get it.

Tiger bhai you are also invited. In your case it will be a special treat which includes one way plane ticket but you need to buy the return one

SL will win even with 220+ target, and SL should win this match easy.

You are right. That was exactly what I was thinking. Our players should actually see this game and see how to bat and maybe realize that not always big and fancy shots need to be played to win a game.
