Jayasuriya needs to be removed early not to give any initiative for SL. Else I don't think they will take this game away from India


Will Sachin get into the record books for getting out for three continuous dubious decisions by umpires?

Good total. However disappointed by Dhoni's batting. He is no longer the fearful striker he was.

There you go. India finish with 363/5 with a major contribution towards the end by Yusuf Pathan (59 off 38 balls) along with a calm 35 from Dhoni.

I think SriLanka are doomed. India 3-0 up surely now!

Am I actually dreaming.. watching the way India's playing of late ? I've spent my entire school and college days watching India getting whipped in every match by SL. So much that I hate the Lankans more than I hate the Paks!

But its an awesome feeling to watch these hi-flying Indians play nowadays! Dhoni for PM anyone ?

363/5 Final score

I feel we scored about 20 runs less, from about 200 in 27 overs.

Probably 20 runs less, but thats to do with the fact that three wickets fell quickly. Dhoni and Pathan took some time to settle. 363 is an awful lot to get anyway.

20 runs less in a score of 363? Man sometimes the expectations of our countrymen from our team.

Think about it like this they from the last match they scored 107 runs more

lol, seems like a runfest today. Poor bowlers. I predict India will win by 53runs.

Got to take back my words.

Well even i was surprised with Dhoni not attacking till the end. Looks like Yusuf was given that role.

That feeling when SL or Aussie lose is something special.

I don't think this was disappointing but he was supporting Pathan and it was important because after him there was no one to support him.

Contrast this with a match in chennai against WI, India were 200 for 3 in 28 overs & slumped to 268 all out in 48 overs and went on to lose that match to the magic of Lara. Here

3 more hours to go for the next match .. Seems after the 3-Nill show the interest and enthu levels have gone down. Come on guys India is on the verge of a new record of 9 consecutive ODI wins.

I think Balaji and Pathan will surely play. Jadeja has an outside chance as Ojha bowled really well last match. Rohit Sharma might replace Raina.

Eddy whats ur forecast today ? Any guesses on Sachin's score ? I am not telling anything today as I have already lost a beer. :(

And this is exactly the reason why I feel they should not make any changes or try any experiments today..........

I say that he will edge a catch behind when he is about 23 or so.

And I hate to say it, but I think we will lose today. Hope I am wrong.
