Sangakara cheated is not news. This new generation of SL cricketers has no spine. Wonder what kind of team ethics Rangatunga groomed.

Sreeshant is going apart.
Hope he delivers and redeems himself.

SL will go to any extent to win even if the team has get to lowest of levels. CHEATS. Pakistan even with the ball tampering history is a far far better team than Srilanka.

I now really want to see Muralitharan and Malinga being hit out of the attack. SEHWAG you listening?

I confess I had to google a bit to get this one out. But remember the incident when I read it.

Australia holds on for 18-run win over India - The New York Times

Quote:
Match referee Jeff Crowe earlier became involved in an incident featuring the catching gloves of Indian wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

The India captain used the gloves to collect a one-handed catch off an inside edge to dismiss fellow wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist for 16 early in the Australian innings. The ball lodged inside the webbing of Dhoni's gloves between his thumb and index finger.

Under the laws of cricket, webbing on wicketkeeper's gloves is not allowed to protrude "beyond the straight line joining the top of the index finger to the top of the thumb." Dhoni's gloves appeared to be in violation of that rule.

Television commentator and former Australian test wicketkeeper Ian Healy raised concerns about the gloves on air. Crowe apparently approached Indian team officials about the matter and Dhoni changed his gloves during a break in the Australian innings.

Australian Associated Press said Crowe took one of the gloves away for further inspection.

But the Achiles heel Sreesanth is here! I can't fathom why Ashwin was left out. He is a decent bat too.

This one's gone I feel. Anything over 250 should be good enough.

We need 3rd umpire to find out what exactly happened in the first toss. According to report in cricinfo, it seems Sanga called heads the first time also. So not sure if there was any cheating here.

Coming to the match, Dhoni has been defensive so far. He is just playing the waiting game.

Edit: Taufel gets one wrong for a change. Reviewed and given out. Yuvi gets another. Game on!

They are well set for at least 280, even more.

No way we are going to chase that. So that means Sachin will play 2015 world cup too?
