:14: Wll guys in just abourt 4.5 hours the 2nd odi between these two teams begins.

After a heart stopping first odi, im looking forward for some more action.

Its a sellout crowd and fortunately im part of it. :D

hoping for some exciting shots. I suspect srilanka will come out all fired up.

If their top order clicks we could see a high scoring dramatic finish.

WINDIES I say are still underdogs even though Srilanka have a relative new side....but Windies got the momentum going with them and are looking for their third win in a row against them.

Hope to have a good time as i did on thursday :p :19:

see you all...and have fun :27:
 
Have a good time.

Pitch looks like another good one for batting.
 
Sri lanka off to a solid start 28/0 after 5.2 overs.
 
Udawate seems to be trying to smash everything out of the park.

Both openers 14* at moment.
 
Bray: "Am I the only one confused as to why Gayle chose to have a bowl on a pitch like this? All due respect to the Windies bowling attack, but I just don't think they can supply the pressure needed whilst bowling to a top quality batting line up on a batsman's paradise. Wouldn't batting first, posting a total, then putting the pressure on the Sri Lankan batsmen be a more feasible plan?" I guess Gayle has gone with what worked the other day. Sri lanka had lost their top order cheaply. Holding did say at the toss that he reckoned the team winning the toss would bat. It didn't happen.

gayle screwd up
 
The wicket has some good pace and bounce here which is good for batting and bowling. The bowlers will enjoy the pace and batsmen could struggle the bounce means ball will come onto the bat nicely.
 
Both sri lankan openers wafting abit to much here could see a wicket falling.

34/0 at moment.
 
Udawatte out ct off Taylor
SL 38-1 after 9 overs

music stopped for a while and there were some announcements. It might be about samosa sale behind some stand. Someone shouting keep moving in the aisle. All thoes moving say "Heeyyy!!!" It looks like it is still raining
 
Latest news from Spain is that rain has stopped and one man is collecting water from the covers. There are a few people on the side of the covers, maybe waiting for their turn to drive that cart.

covers are coming off but a lot of water on them. A man has problem with his hand pushed water collecting apparatus and having problem emptying it. A man brings somthing which lokks like a water pump on the one wheel dholi
