Don't want the Lankans to qualify. They're such a bland team. I'm rooting for the English today.
 
England are gonna cop a thrashing on this deck.
 
Should have batted first I think. England's batting is not the best at chasing especially against Sl spinners/Malinga though i might be wrong about this.
 
England is a boring team with hardly any exciting bowlers or batters, I hope they lose today and are out out of the tournament.
 
Big test for SL now. Mahela/Dilshan/Sanga have been in pretty poor touch of late.
 
Hmmm. SL batting has depended on Perera a lot. Big wicket for England. That was a poor delivery by Dernbach though. really should have been put away for four.
 
That should have been out!!

And the irony in England appealing for a catch that wasnt for the first wicket is hilarious
 
That is poor from Mahela and the umpires.
 
I just went outside to check if cows are flying.. That is the day when England will beat SL.. Specially in this spinners track.. LOL
 
The day of stupid umpiring. Steve Davis was the TV umpire this time too :13:
 
That was out BUT the ball before shouldn't be so I won't complain

But I can see the England fans being mad

Also some horrible kit by England, did the pants get lost in the cargo
 
Someone need to tweet Warne and ask him why he is silent now? He dont miss a chance to bash Aleem Dar
 
How long are England going to persist with this RUBBISH CRICKETER BRESNAN!
 
Anyone know the name of the man who designs England's jerseys? *cocks gun* I want to pay him a visit
 
When Brez is a new ball option ahead of someone like Finn who's sitting at home you know there's a problem

Adidas came up with these brilliant ideas for England South Africa jerseys :))
 
God i feel so sorry for Dernbach. I just cant help it. The poor guy tries so hard but always finds a way to screw up...

Oi. I feel sorry for what Netherlands did to you guys, but everyone better be afraid of Ireland in WC2015!
 
Don't feel sorry for Dernbach. He brings all his misfortune upon himself.

Jayawardene had no business staying at the wicket after being caught there, but sportsmanship is a concept that seems to have bypassed Sri Lanka entirely.
 
As Nas has noted, the pitch is quite weird. Some deliveries are stopping and others are coming on quickly. Very 2 paced.

Guess what Mahela won ICC Spirit of Cricket Award last year ;)
 
Russel Arnold... I swear there aren't any commentators from any other countries that are as biased as him. Except maybe Ian Botham, lol.
 
@Bickers I am sure that Jayawardene wouldn't have been sure whether it had carried so he went with the umpires decision

Absolutely.
As much as people want and sometimes convince themselves to believe that seniors like Sangakkara and Jayawardene are humble or respectable... No.

Mahela's been around enough years, he'll have known for sure - just wanted to take every chance of being able to stay in, and it paid off.
 
Now Bresnan drops a catch. Easily the worst match of the tournament. Batsmen playing carelessly, bowlers look innocuous and the catching has been club level.
