someone 'shani-proof' will have to step up to the ocassion here. I can think of no such person, and in any case this whole final/kirket thing has been too overhyped. Until that happens it is 96 redux.

bookies could not make money on semis, but they will make money on this one. Once for bookies, hip hip hooray.

They need to shoot for 200-225 in the first 40 overs without loosing more than 3 wickets and then get the last 75 in the last 10 overs.

We need two good partnerships in the top-middle order. That will do the job.

Tendulkar seems to be trying too hard... He needs to preserve his wicket. I don't have an issue with opportunistic boundaries, but forcing the issue will cost wickets.

Betfair is still offering 1.81 for India and 2.2 for SL. If any one thinks SL will win this is the time to make a million dollars

MSD typically is a percentage and probability captain. Today he was a hope captain. He was hoping that Pranthan will get a wicket or two, instead of looking at how he was letting the pressure slip. Further if the goal was to get a wicket or two, MSD should have put in a slip in which he did not.

He had poor fielding placement for SS.

Can we expect a remarkable middle order taking us past the winning line? With GG and Kohli tough to predict.

It breaks my heart for Sachin. Not only he wont get his 100th century, he will never win a world cup. He deserved it (the world cup that is).

my est is 215 all out around 40 overs.

in a way its good - the media hype will be over immediately, else extended aman ki tamacha love fests would have happened.

SRT does not need a WC or 100 x 100 to prove anything, 99 x 100 is beyond legendary.
