The day of reckoning is here - Am pretty sure Dhoni will go with Kohli and Ashwin.

Overall, India look a far more balanced and well-oiled machine. For the Lankans, Malinga, Dilshan, Sanga and Tharanga seem to be the key players ... some of the others have been either patchy or not fully tested in the world cup !

Hope INDIA can put this one across the lankans ! May be, Sachin should tell Murali - "You've been a WC winner in 1996, is baar meri baari hai"

Go India !!!

What was that?
Why there was toss again?
Dhoni should not have done it again. Other person has to be loud. SL Captain starts off again with usual cheating attitude. I bet he lost and then changed his call.
SL start the match with cheating.
CHUCKERS!!!!!

Absolutely agree. That is why i hate SL. Their skipper himself is a cheat.

Sreesanth in. That is a big risk.

^^ The wicket will be of some assistance to seamer's and pacers initially. Hopefully Sreesanth will prove himself. Infact the pacers should do the job well. Later on the wicket will turn more. But that will be much later. I am not sure how much Bhajji and Yuvi will be able to get out of it in first innings itself. SL has to be put out below 200.

"Chuck de" Murali is going to be a great risk on the turning track later on.

If India lose today, the video of that 2min will be talked about more than the world cup itself.

I just couldn't digest the way Sangakarra reacted, he know what he called, he could have just lifted the coin and confirmed the result with the referree.

Instead, he saw the coin on the ground, saw the referree's reaction, and just acted as if he forgot the whole world. This attitude of his absolutely sucks. A show of absolute low life at that moment. Respect to Dhoni!!

I hope and pray India wins today!!

Lets hope sreesanth does not get carried away with the assistance.

They have a mighty long national anthem, the Lankans.

Exactly. They started showing their true colors even before start of the game. I somehow can't digest these guys. Although I like Muralitharan.

Why no Ashwin in the team? That guy was in good form..

I'm pretty (pleasantly) surprised by the fielding. Raina and Yuvraj, and that Sehwag ball, and the last four saved, this isn't India.

EDIT : Michael Vaughan also said on his twitter that Sangakarra cheated. The 'tails' was audible on air.

Quote:
Sangakarra has stuffed Dhoni.. He shouted Tail in the 1 st toss and lost it .. You can hear it in on air...
