^^ Its not about that. Its about coming up when needed. Bowlers let us down. Now I expect him to play a Jaya like innings. But will he?

I hope so. But experience has taught me otherwise.

But I still pray that I have to eat my words.

I can hear the fat lady sing in my ears already! I am only ruing the fact that Ms. Pandey may not get to do what she wanted to do so desperately! :rofl:

On a lighter note, I am quoting from twitter!

Enough said about the bowling in the death overs!

Sri Lanka has a strong attack for the conditions but my gut feeling says that India are going to win it

Well Guys, to be a world champion it takes a lot of effort. If India can score 275 today they will definitely be the true world champions of cricket. Its always good to fight hard and cherish the win.

Srilanka have showed what they are made of. Now its for the famous and strong Indian batting line up to live up-to the expectation.

If India has the best batting - they ought to prove it now by chasing it ... good news if Kula and Perrera can go hammer and tongs with ease on this pitch, so should most of the indian batting !

I'm sure it will be

Team India will prove me right!

We have to take the attack to their spinners, we shouldn't allow them to settle down at all.

This match has gone on similar note like of 2003 world cup final. Now I doubt if india could win this match. Very Disappointing

And Sehwag goes for a Duck.

Or has he?

Seems Chuckers did him in.

And he is out.

I do not follow much of cricket. But I want India to win. This is the first World Cup match that I am watching from the first ball. I hope the others play well.

Sehwag for a duck is an ominous sign. It's gonna be very very difficult from now on.
