    Srilanka

    After Todays match i think they are a really strong Contender. They have the best bowling lineup for these pitches with Murli, Mehndis and Malinga. The only problem is their batting and if it can hold and put a decent total i don't see any reason why they won't win.

    Vale Neil Adcock

    As KP Says, "It'S Tough Being Me."

    So when my pals asked me to hang out on a very special Pakistan match day, I denied. Ever since that my love for the Pakistan team has been exposed and on the other hand, I was being judged. “Thou should not love them after being a Lankan” was the all ever I got. A couple...

    Sir Viv

    Sir Viv Richards for me is the best of the best. At least during my lifetime I hasten to add. The manner in which he used to walk to the wicket swinging his bat was arrogance (in the best sense) and the confidence that he had. I wonder what treats we have had if the T20 version...
