With Sehwag out of the series, India seems to be pretty thin on batting. Yuvraj and Dhoni HAVE to show up today and score some run and make it competitive.

What a run Mendis is having! 23 wicket in 8 ODIs - highest # of wickets in 1st 8 ODI by any bowler.

Go Lankans, keep beating on the Indians.

This has been a fun tour to follow :D

I hope the "fun" continues when you guys tour India. :D
 
Oh I so wish Lanka had a busier schedule in the next few months .. but sadly all they have is Bangladesh in December.

Cricinfo said:
The rumour from the television studio is that Gambhir is injured and he might not play. Huh! That is a big blow, if that is true ie. Dean Jones deadpans: "Did he stand on a ball in practice like Sehwag and got injured?!"

:)) :))
 
Cricinfo said:
Dhoni calls Heads correctly and has chosen to bowl. "It's a more forced decision but we have lost Gambhir for this game. So we will bowl first. Irfan will open. We don't have a specialist opener." Praveen Kumar has come in for Ojha. And Subramaniam Badrinath makes his debut.

Vaas won't be playing for Sri Lanka. Mahela says,"He has been feeling a bit a stiff. We don't want to take any risks. Dilhara Fernando will play."

Interesting!
 
WHAT THE HELL SON?

no gambhir no sachin no sehwag, this is ridiculous! atleast pick ganguly or someone sincet hey have no peners jeez.

why isn't ***** being picked?
 
Waqar and Deno do not approve Irfan opening. They want Dhoni to open.
 
they could have just made yuvi open i mean hes a sitting duck against spinners anyways.
 
Sangakarra is Zaheer's bunny, always get him out.. Sanga always looks uncomfy facing Zaheer...

I warned yesterday too to keep Bhajji locked at all times except when playing a match. But unfortunately nobody listened! :D
 
Tmac4real,

please stop using that word over and over again- i am deleting/editing your posts for a reason.
 
India on top. Zaheer is on a different plane today. See you in two hours from another part of the world.
 
what the..... is going on? FOUR down!!!
 
PlanetPakistan said:
yes indeed..thats why people say its a funny game.
India on top...and funny? I don't think so! :D
 
i hope indians dont let it slip from here.

crush 'em. just crush 'em. :pissed:
 
Arun Lal is going on and on about Dhoni not opting for 3rd slip.
 
Tony Greig says that Dhoni wanted to bat but reluctantly chose to bowl. :))
 
And this is why Lanka will never be a top team even with great bowling ...
 
it seems that T Greig isn't a big fan of the indian team...perhaps because of his connection with the ICL

Yeh I noticed that too. He was the BIGGEST fan of Indian team - specially Sachin. I'll never forget his comment in Kolkata when Sachin was going out to bat in 1999 that he came all the way from England just to watch Sachin bat. We know what happened on the 1st ball.
I agree, since he ICL connection, he does not sound to excited to talk about Indian team.

Nah doubt it, he is a very big fan and supporter of Sri Lankan cricket, always has been.
 
I still have full faith in Mendis to bring a recovery for the Lankans.

Unbelievable this game, cricket!
 
T. Greig - "Lanka only need 130 to win"

:))) :))) :)))
 
Sri Lanka really need to find some genuine allrounders, and fast, or they can never become a top force in cricket.

I mean just look at their tail! Its wagging with 5 specialist bowlers!
 
Harsh LBW on Jaya .. the ball struck him a good deal above the knee roll.

yeah...he hates Indian team but still not as much as he hates the Aussies
 
Oh happy happy dayyy
It was getting so humiliating to see one defeat after another, and to hear the sneer in Tony Greig's voice. How I loathe him, right after ARun LOL.

Go India, I did feel it was going to be a good performance from our team today but NOT THIS GOOD :)
 
Now to the bad news, Badrinath may not be able to bat today :(.. I hope Mendis gets some wickets so Badri can come to the crease....

Yeah mustve gotten tired of us handing their a** to them; 1-6 in India, trashing them in OZ :D ...They finally decided to stop bending over to us on a consistent basis as you can see recently...
 
Man, how did that Lankan umpire keep a straight face while give that lbw not out? :))
 
bah.....if tht arun lal starts talking about something........he goes on and on and on and on :boom:

Shouldve seen his look when Dhoni made Doctrove confirm it to his face that there was no edge off the bat onto the pads like the cheating Lankan was claiming :)) ...Well you can damn well also bet that Pak fans on this forum wont be putting the Lankan's picture as their avatar either :) but they will if SRT raises his finger to a plumb LBW ...

And meanwhile he kept shut when third wkt fell. After a whole minute he snapped to attention adn said 'did he catch that? oh, is that out?' Hopeless case

what I dont understand is why go to the 3rd umpire if you're not gonna reverse the decision?

did anyone understand what that was all about? doctrove goes to 3rd ump, dhoni nods his head, but its still not out! I thought 3rd umpire can decide on lbws?

Its not about getting the decision, everyone knew it was out..Dhoni was trying to humiliate the cheating Lankan and that worked, so all is well mission accomplished..
