    Kiwis to win Keep expectations low. We have to make sure that NRR doesn't suffer much. If Mash wins the toss, we should chase.

    Other game could be boring - if somehow IND loses, I am sure it'll be a crashing loss, or they'll win comfortably.

    Srilanka were 180-8 after 32 overs considering 50 overs

    Let's be honest, Lanka weren't expected to bat more than 4/5 overs and would score 20 more. So even though the number of overs were reduced for Lanka it would not matter.

    But as for Afghanistan they came to bat considering 41 overs.

    Now if Lanka had lost 3/4 wickets they would actually have their score increased.

    One of the worst decline in modern day cricket due to the unbalanced batting context is that, most teams have absolutely no clue of what is a good total for a wicket. Every team starts with a 350 mindset and often it results in to one sided game - the day slog swing connects, it's 100+ margin or a chase inside 40 overs.

    Today, I saw the wicket and my first impression was - it's a 50 overs wicket. SRL was given a wonderful opportunity to bury AFGs with a target of 270+ with that start, but they targeted 333+ and their batting plan was absolute shambolic - even after 5 down, Tisera with all that experience got run out to an impossible single, Udana slogged to be castled and finally Perera at 75 got out reverse sweeping when RR was still 6+!!!!!!! Even playing out 50 overs for 225 would have been enough for them, which was possible till Perera's dismissal.

    I think, now the game is in balance - AFGs need to bat out 41 overs & they'll win it.

    Thatís why I always give credit to Lara for maintaining his standards when he was stuck in a sea of mediocrity for so many years
    Years? Even the 2003-2007 years of West Indies cricket were much better than what Lanka are going through right now . They won CT in 2004 and made the final in 2006 and then atleast qualified for super 8 in 2007 world cup. Windies ODI team still had Gayle, Bravo , Samuels, Sarwan, Collymore, Jerome Taylor etc. That side was only mediocre compared to the era of Ambrose, Walsh etc.

    These balls don't swing after few overs and seem dies out too quickly. SRL doesn't have any spinner which is a blunder - on this type of wicket, spinners skid faster than batsmen predicts and little turn, it's tougher than facing medium pacer - I can tell on this wicket, Shakib will kill few teams if he gets his drift working.

    I this, if AFG's reach 107/5 after 25, they'll chase 80 in 16 overs. Malinga's last few overs will be crucial.

    Root apparently mentioned somewhere yesterday that the balls they are using in WC have more pronounced seam. I don't know where or I misheard.

    If it's a traditional slow, dry Cardiff pitch then Bangladesh have a chance. However we've seen greentops in Cardiff in this WC so far.

    Of course was the scene of that famous 2005 win vs Australia.

    Those Eid days are gone with Ashfool/Aftab type of players. We have much better consistent core players now. We dont need to beat Eng. Our aim should be to beat NZ. If we beat NZ, I am pretty sure we will have all but secured semi spot.

    Bowled him !

    This reminds me of our tense game vs Zimbabwe in 2015 WC when we were struggling badly but ground out a much needed win.

    Ooh good ball from Pradeep. This has been an excellent over.

    Afghans seem more comfortable defending a total than chasing. Runs have ground to a halt.

    It's all down to Najibullah right now and his batting partner can't run. Watch that RRR start to spiral out of control for Afghanistan...couldn't have happened to a nicer team!

    Will go down to wire it seems. A specialist spinner would have wrapped the game for Sri Lanka.

    Man it feels like Pakistan have been involved in many similar games, chasing or defending a low score.

    Must be unbearably tense if you're an Afghan or Sri Lankan fan.

    Malinga has a decent yorker doesn't he? If so they won't last.

    NZ will be too hard this time, they are practicing well to tackle Shakib. I just hope we play out 50 overs tomorrow. Donít want to spoil our Eid, better to keep expectations low.

    This and the last couple of matches have been fabulous entertainment. There were hardly any games going to wire in 2015 WC.

    Pressure of a WC and some balanced pitches and look what we get.

    He has a excellent yorker. Also a good looping looking delivery as well.
