Namo Namo Srilanka Matha.

Sounds very similar to Indian Patriotic songs. You just have to replace Srilanka with Bharat. :sachin
 
any one else noticed in our national anthem (Pakistan) just music is played no voice ) why oh why

haha agree lol...
how is bangladesh National anthem , must be similar to India
 
supporting England because of crappy cheerleaders from host ..come on,get dem :)
 
First 3 overs were good but Dernbach with his standard rubbish 16 run over has blown it again.

I don't know how he fits into your side tbh. He is generally rubbish in the death overs and so is upfront, especially in these conditions.
 
Fantastic over from Finn. Took out the wasteman Dilshan and was unlucky not to remove Sangakkara second ball as well. One of the best bowlers of this tournament.

Yep he is terrible. Broad and Finn are quality T20 bowlers but I don't really know who joins them as the third seamer.
 
Only 3 runs off a powerplay over. Well done Stuart.

Finn is a wonderful bowler. I think he has provided with a break through upfront for Eng in all the matches, isn't it?
 
I would pick Bresnan over Jada Dernback.

Bresnan hasn't been the same bowler since his elbow injury. He could improve to the fantastic standards of his 2010/2011 winter season one day in the future, but for now he's not hitting his straps.

Probably. Finn has to be a shoo-in for the India tests, otherwise England are stupid.
 
Sangakkara dropped by Bairstow (keeping) off Swann.
 
Mahela c Morgan b Swann 42

Brilliant from everyone involved, particularly the catch.
 
Sanga ....again refusing to leave when given out. sick of his antics.
 
Swann on a hat-trick! What a fantastic bowler he is, 2 balls, gets the 2 world-class players out.
 
Sanga ....again refusing to leave when given out. sick of his antics.

To be fair to him I'm not sure he even hit it and if he did then it was only a small edge. These next few overs are extremely important. A couple of wickets here and England will have a good chance of winning however if these two get themselves in then Sri Lanka could put on a big total.
 
He did not hit that at all. No wonder he was mad.

well,even when his middle stump is uprooted the guy refuses to leave . His behavior including appeals when fielding are atrocious .Imo,he is a cheat .
 
Lol at the shocked look on his face when he was given out.

Umpire Davis gave him plenty of gifts in the Pakistan tests and now hes taking one back.
 
Broad spoilt his figures there, 10 balls for 3 then 2 balls for 8 :facepalm:
 
Swann is turning the ball a mile. Feel sorry for Bairstow trying to stand up to the stumps to him!

Not a good sign for when England have to chase this total down.

yeah,sl have 4 spinning options . btw,i hope match referee docks that loser Sanga .

this is what cricinfo says about the cheat : 10.2
Swann to Sangakkara, OUT, tossed up outside off again, edged and caught behind! A thin nick and England have two huge breakthroughs in a couple of balls. It was nicely floated up, Sangakkara pressed forward outside off and got a thin edge through to Bairstow. The batsman looked pretty unhappy but the umpire's finger went up quickly

So SL will bowl 16 overs of spin with the other 24 balls being yorkers from Malinga..

You seem to have a chip on your shoulder, even when he does nothing wrong you still want him to be punished.. :facepalm:

Brilliant catch by Finn who takes it over the boundary for 6.
 
England is almost out here.

What ever Lankans score, England have to chase that in 15 overs?

Good luck with Lankan spinners smothering English.

Yes because ESPNCricinfo is always right.. Have you actually seen any images which show he edged it?

And even if he did often batsmen don't really feel/hear thin edges so stop this childish Sanga hating.

No.

If England win they are through, if England win within 15(?) overs then Sri Lanka go out and the West Indies go through with England.

All England have to do is win, but this is England so it is going to be far more difficult than it seems...

You seem to be enamored with him ... have you watched him behave even when he is clean bowled or as a keeper appealing for balls which missed the bat by a good 6 inches !!!

Lol what are you on about? Winner goes through guaranteed, that's it.

Enamored? No I just don't have an unreasonable hatred of him like you do.. He is no worse than most cricketers, the age of gentlemen has long gone and the Indian players aren't exactly angels are they..
 
What a game swinging back and forward here!

4 crucial overs coming up!

I think SL will be able to get enough on the board.

Anything in the 150-160 range will be enough on this spinning track IMO
 
Finn has bowled the most dot balls in this tournament.

hatred- love your juvenile presumptions .
Not seen any Indian player behave like the loser Sanga .
 
Dernbach is bloody terrible!

170 is on again.
 
Jada getting smashed again!!!

All those tattoos on his arm are still not making him look threatening :asif
 
Dirtbag is worse than Sami. Sami atleast has a decent odi record. Dirtbag gets wickets vs Afghanistan and thinks he is a good bowler.
 
Dernbach 3 overs for 35, surely now he has to be sacked for good, useless.
 
Dernbach losing this game for England.

All the good work done by Finn has gone down the drain.

Lankans would be looking over 160 now.
 
Last over will be Dernbach, Bopara or Patel :(

I think we're out.
