The law of averages is catching up with you now. You cannot be right this time.

India again wins the toss and again elects to bat.

Sachin, Zaheer rested. Rohit Sharma, I Phatan comes in to replace Sachin, Zaheer.

Makes it easier for you to predict that he wont score a single run today.

Ok, my MOM for today is V.Sehwag. Who is yours ?

My MoM for today is either Dhoni or Gambhir(specially gambhir as i feel he will get a big one today)
Also this baffles me as Sachin has not scored in series(due to great decisions by umpires) why was he rested and not given a chance to make some runs?

On SL side i feel this can be Jaya's day!

You said it.. and he got it!

332/5, this sure is one high-flying Indian team. Never seen such consistency in my close to 20 years of following Indian Cricket.

He was rested to give relief to SriLankan umpires perhaps!
