83/4 in 20. Sanga plays a loose shot and departs shaking his head. That ball was not a wkt taking delivery.

will be interesting to see how India chase 200+. so far it's been side batting first that wins
 
Thats 3 consecutive maidens from Ojha/One of them a wicket maiden..good going lad.
 
That was very very unimpressive...the 1st half of the game was as good as useless.Bowlers bowling crap,batsmen edging it behind all the time.Give me a break.

Why did Dhoni bowl RP Singh instead of Munaf Patel? RP bowled rubbish today, Munaf has been one of your better bowlers in the series
 
God knows..i hope RP never gets anywhere near intl ckt for a year.
 
good job done by tushara and mubarak and now just wait and see what india will do
 
great spell of bowling by Lankans! India doing well to survive couple of close lbw shouts and moving ball. Fielding is amazing
 
Anyway the thing that amazes me is how we get these U-19 players to adapt and play in our seniour team!!Virat looks at home actually.
 
Truncated game...traget 216 from 44 overs.Play to resume shortly.
 
Anyways,disappointing really how things turned out..doesn't help when u have an umpire who needs his eyesight tested.I have had enough of this game..well for what its worth,well played Lanka.
 
India getting pwned

18.1 Mendis to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, bowled him! Mendis has gone Yuvraj first ball! He's tormented him in this series! It was the ball that went straight on across the left-hander, yuvraj stayed in his crease and tried to push the ball on the off side, the ball hit the inside edge and then went on to the stumps, it may have hit the pad as well
Yuvraj Singh b Mendis 17 (23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 73.91

Can they come back?

Thats one of the worst LBW decision I have ever seen.
 
I guess this is the point where Mendis takes a nice 5-fer against the tail-enders and the SL commies get multiple orgasms raving about how Mendis remained unconquered??You are back on duty RA..

Without the service of The Yuvi? Very unlikely. I do suspect Mendis is secretely using Kryptonite here. Is that allowed by WADA?

and now DHONI pwned...so much for being no. 1

yes one failure in a year in a dead rubber is so bad. That too after averaging 70 for a year :miandad
 
India's record in dead rubbers leaves a lot to be desired. But then again, theyre dead rubbers.
 
India just got owned. What a thrashing!

Me personally - not bothered.

I've given up on any ODI cricket in the subcontinent.

Asia Cup was the last straw for me.

Yea. It's getting seriously boring. Need a SAF tour. Those pitches are beautiful.
 
Here's some for India: :))) :)))

And a slightly special one for The Yuvi: :))) :)))
 
Thnak God this series is over for Yuvi and we can see him firing on all cylinders against the Aussies.Even today he got the starts creaming both the new frontline bowlers till his nemesis Mendis once again got the better of him..I will still back him for the upcoming series against Australia
 
Who cares if we lost today, WE WON THE SERIES :125:

Dhoni, tussi great ho sirji. Winning 3 tosses in a row...wah wah
 
Didn't care that much when we won the ODI series, don't care at all we lost this one.
 
Unbelievable thrashing in the end, but quite a stupid series really, with the team batting first winning every game, I believe.

You believe incorrectly, I believe. SL won the first game chasing, and India won the 2nd chasing
first 2 were day games(bowling first was a huge advantage)
the next 3 were D/N games(batting first was a huge advantage)
