Here comes another interesting India vs Sri Lanka match ;)

Time to sit down and witness another epic battle!
 
Lanka against India? :))

Congratulations India on winning the World T20. Not even a million dollar incentive will give Lanka the will to beat them.
 
God must love torturing us with India - Sri Lanka matches. Theres no escaping them!!
 
India all set to become the first team to regain the WT20
 
<.overtheTop>

We are the champions.
We are the champions.
No time for Lankans

'Cause we are the champions of the world.

:bow:
A humble bow to the greatest limited overs Team of the last 10 years.

Both play spinners well. They cancel each other out.

It comes down to who bats well.

I have India 60-40 in winning this.
 
This is so incredibly mundane and boring. These two...AGAIN!?!?! I want to pull all my hair out. I will certainly NOT be watching.
 
The only way SL can win is by restricting india to 120

Sri Lankans have spent all of 2014 in Bangadesh. They are very much at home and look good.

Should be 90-10 in India's favour. Only a miracle will help the Lankans now.
 
Whoever wins the toss, will win the game. SA didn't have the attack to defend this total. SL has an attack to defend 140 imo.
 
Top Teams from Both Groups will meet in Final
this time Lanka ki naya paar lag jayeghi - COMON LANKA LIONS DO IT FOR SANGA AND JAYA
 
Not against India or anything but I just wanted to say that a tournament gets SO BORING when there is one team winning matches like its a walk in the park much like CT and Aussies in WC 1999-2007 as you already know who will lift the trophy in the end.
 
Feel like its gonna be a win the toss - win the match, type of game. Sri Lanka should fancy their chances if India bats first. Otherwise India have the edge I'm afraid..
 
I alwaz said no matter the conditions..no matter the team..dnt let india chase if you win toss man.......and my all prediction till now got r8..
 
don't underestimate lanka...they have good bowling and batsmen who can post 160

This will probably be the last Wt20 for Dilshan, Mahela, Sangakara and Herath. Plus Matthews is in good form. Dont underestimate SRI, Sanga and Mahela will be pumped!

ICC World T20 2014 Final: India vs Sri Lanka l 6th April, Dhaka

A spirited and accomplished Indian unit up against arguably the best tournaments team of the generation filled with some great cricketers.

An ageing MS Dhoni ready tpo hand over baton to Virat Kohli in a grand way on one side and on the other side two great cricketers from Sri Lanka looking to bid adieu to limited overs cricket in an year or so with at least 1 trophy in their kitty.




All set for an emotional finale, and ironically its India vs Sri Lanka lol. These teams are destined for great moments despite the borefest bilaterals.

Hopefully MSD keeps playing. He's been a massive BLESSING for Indian cricket. Coolest Indian cricketer ever!
 
I can gurantee you now that SL will be at Matalla Airport soon Sunday evening.

Congratulations Indian's. Another trophy in the cabinet.
 
Guys, Sri Lanka are a great team. It will be an emotional contest, we don't know whats written in destiny. Sanga and Mahela deserve something for their great careers.

But you have Kohli and Dhoni who are legends as well.

Fgs what a dull match to end the tournament. Congrats India even though the tournament is fixed like champions trophy
 
I hope for once Dhoni loses the toss. This guy is sooo luckyy.

He lost the toss today and in the game against Australia. That means he won 3 out of 5 tosses and lost two.

Or do you want dhoni to lose every toss? :yk
 
I had SL as favourites before the tournament but given the way India have played it's going to be hard to look past them. They cruised through the tough group easily beating Pak, WI and OZ and then looked in control throughout against SA. It's going to take a special performance to beat them I reckon.
 
Some one hits it big and keep hitting for 10-12 overs. That will kill the game.
 
At least play with different colored jerseys man. Both teams have like identical jerseys.

Lol apologies, didnt watch the match today but just assumed Dhoni won again as India batted second.

Dhoni wins a lot of tosses tho !
 
Lankans will be highly motivated.

Greats like Jaya and Sanga are retiring. I am sure Lanka wants to send these 2 into retirement on a high note. Would be fairy tale ending to their great careers.

Actually I wanted Lankans to win as I assumed that Indians will not get past the group stages. But India made it to the finals. Will be tough for Lankans.

May be a tie will be good because both teams will be joint winners. India will have the satisfaction of winning it and Lanka can also send their grandpas on a high note?
 
Sanga hasn't fired in this wc yet.I'm afraid sanga special is coming up in the final :(
 
Lanka should win this one. They are bound to win one final :southafrica :p
 
Both have fared very well, India face the toughest opponents on form and cannot take anything for granted.
 
the way india is playing,they should win it easily tomarrow.esp wen srilanka are chokers in the finals
 
I am backing Srilanka more than anytime now.They deserve a WC trophy badly. They gave a lot to the cricket world.

And this is their best chance and last chance also. When Mahela and Sanga retire, there will be big vacant spaces in the middle order,very difficult to fill.

Win the toss and bowl first. Put Perera up in the order at no 5. Drop Chandimal once again.
Take Kohli and Raina's wicket early. Bowl with basics right with not looking for variations.Be aggressive like a lion. Dont be humble and sedate like what was Pakistan and WI against the Indians. And take the trophy with u back home. As simple as this!

Go Srilanka go.
 
If you find this fixture boring, your time should have had the guts to make it to the final instead of these two.

I'm piping for Sri Lanka. I can see them breaking the jinx.
 
We need to keep our temperament intact. Malinga and Herath are clear threat. Raina and Yuvi will do much better against Herath.
 
Mahela and Sangakara are retiring from T20! And really who cares about T20I retirements only. If they are retiring from any kind of cricket then sentiments work.
 
I like Lankans but i have Indian Punjabi ancestry from my Mums side so i dont know who to support.

As much as I want Lankans to win …. I don't think it is going to happen. Just like we have a phobia of playing against the Indians …. so do the Lankans. Besides, the Indians, at present, are supremely confident. Nothing seem to faze them. If Dhoni wins the toss, match over. Only way to defeat them is to make them bat FIRST. For them, setting a target seem to be not as essy as chasing one. Besides Kohli, Dhoni is the most dangerous guy. He always shows up when few quick run are needed …. and delivers …. damn !!!!!
 
For some reason India SL matches are never intense. I hope we will see a worthy final tomorrow.

Both teams have good chances, nothing matters now. Doesnt matter how they reached finals, its here and its now. Anyone wins this one match and rest will be history.

However i think India has a slight edge due to their performance so far and their mental edge over SL. But SL and Ind are similar in very ways, any result is possible.
