wow!! SL won by 13runs.
What a match...saw last few overs and it was really close in the end.Jaysuria got the last wicket although he never bowled in the whole series before.

Hey Diabloo,

Don't you think you are way tooooo unrealistic ? Whilst there is every chance that we might beat the aussies, it ain't that easy a job.

And if you think Sehwag will just come in the team and blast runs easily, think again man. It will be TOUGH for him. I hope that we perform, so that at least you remain in such high spirits

ROTFLOL .. good one there LLL.
This seems to be Jayasuriya's last ODI career match. If so, he ends up with taking wicket at the last bowl he bowled in his career.
That's some good note to end his career along with SL winning

I guess we should also spare a thought for poor Brett Lee. Yet another heartbreak loss where he has fought till the last and wound up on the losing side.

Good job by the Sri Lankans! They didn't make it to the finals, but they left in style. A win is a win,whether its by 1 run or 100 runs. And I like the way they fought till the very end.

Now I hope things look good for the Indian team,atleast by winning the 1st final. Put some pressure on the Aussies,and we might very well end up winning the series.
Hypothetic situation?

World Record for the opening wicket partership by Smith and Kenzie of SA. They scored 414 without losing wicket.


92.6Shakib Al Hasan to Smith, 1 run, The 52-year wait is over. Smith and McKenzie have got the world record. It was tossed up on the middle and off, Smith stretched across and wristed it past square leg. The players shake hands in the middle, the ones in the dressing room are up on their feet.
