    I think they'll choke. Their lower order is pretty weak. Need to play Thisara IMO.
    Should be an interesting finish on the cards.

    What's worse only Rabada can operate at 140K, Pretorius and Parnell are supplementary bowlers nothing more.

    SL will win this, though it's kinda better for Pakistan if they lose.

    You never know, they might just be the ones missing out on direct qualification!

    Also, I wouldn't mind SA being #1.

    SA's fielding has been poor, dropped catches and a keeper missing to stump the wickets for an easy run out. Bit of pressure and the old skeletons creep out.

    The crowd was also a disappointment, there was no atmosphere whatsoever.

    Now if SA did that we would be called all sorts of names. I suppose we have only ourselves to blame for that. Soon we'll be rid of that tag...

    Yes, there have been a large amount of collapses lately. I feel that it is due to the attacking manner in which the cricketers are playing.

    Sri Lankan fans must look at Tharanga and wonder 'what could've been!'

    Had such a brilliant start and more than that looked a million dollars.

    Just went the wayside.

    Kind of a shock for me that he is captain now which means he must be doing well Atleast from a Sri Lankan perspective

    But I'm personally convinced that he had all the talent and skills in the world to be a great opener

    That shot to bring up 100 was just outrageous.

    Even when SL was 200 for 1 at 27 something overs I knew SL would choke. Weerakoddy's inning was the worst 50 I've watched.

    Really? He hit some nice shots, they were beautiful reverse sweeps against Tahir
