    Congratulations India. Pl. at least let Sri Lanka win the 5th ODI. Besides allow Sri Lanka to score more than 217 runs.

    If India lose the next mach we must have them fully investigated by the ICC... Unless otherwise they sell the game to secure the Hambantota Airport, there is no way this team can lose to the bunch of players from Paradise Island...

    Do not blame the selectors,coaches or Administrators.It is the responsibility and the duty of the playing Eleven who performs in the middle.Their lack luster performance made Srilanka down under.

    This sport, at one time considered to the the sport of gentlemen is turning out to be a joke. It's getting from bad to worse. Please give the SLC black board a thorough wiping starting with the Sports Minister.

    My only fear was that would India would reach 400 and we would lose by about 200 runs. .
