Did you guys notice that most of the big guns were looking at the bottom of the bat after holing out to the deep ?

I think yuvraj also changed his bat twice!
They kept looking at the bottom after hitting quite a few shots. I dunno if they changed the bat supplier or tried something new that backfired!

Surely 400 is possible, maybe 500 if sehwag carries his bat.

SL 251/1 in 30 overs.

162 required in 20 overs. I know where my money is; where is yours?

This kinda bowlers' graveyards are too bad for game. This will dent India's confidence big way. I'll stick my neck out and say that if India lose this one (which I am sure they will), they'll lose the series 4-1.

P.S. Now the only point of interest is - whether Dilshan will be able to make double hundred?

Wondering what was the curator having in mind while preparing the wicket. 800+ runs scored in a single day.

What will happen to young aspiring bowlers after looking at such games where there was nothing in the pitch for them :-)

Congrats to our team and all that, but, what was interesting is the will to fight after seeing 414 on the board. I mean Dilshan and team seriously thought they would do it and they almost did.
We can't blame our batsmen, they did get the runs and record runs at that.
If w would have lost then nobody but the bowlers (unfortunately) would have had to take the blame. The man of the match IMHO has to be the pitch curator.
