    The match was gifted to India by following players.
    Upul;Third time out without troubling the scorers.
    Sanga;Poor form with the bat and now with the gloves as well.Conceded additional two runs by dropping Ashwin.
    Malinga;Being very expensive in the context of game and very poor fielding.Not trying to get those run outs.
    Mathews;Thanks for 30 ball 17 and 15 runs conceded to to India in the 49th over with a no ball.
    Thisara;Cannot understand why he is playing?
    Trusted Captain MJ;He has got everything mixed up so far on this tour.He is now getting the treatment from his own medicine..Hope , that you are now feeling the heat that Dilshan was getting?If you are brave enough, come and open with Dilshan and show your colors.If you bat low down, then you must control and finish like Doni.May be you are planning to do it in IPL.

    Malinga to Ashwin, 2 runs, 125.6 kph, Sangakkara drops a sitter! Would you believe it! Ashwin top edged it towards point and Sangakkara volunteered to run across and take the catch, point was ready and willing but he spilled it

    Sam, were you sleeping?

    Gayan Tuesday, 14 February 2012 05:15 PM

    Where is the captian geneus?. Still cant win a match.

    Sam Tuesday, 14 February 2012 05:14 PM

    What match have you been watching? Ashwin's dropped catch did not cost any runs!

    Sam Tuesday, 14 February 2012 05:04 PM

    That one is a bit dodgy - some feel he should have been able to collect and throw instead of pushing the ball in for someone else to throw.

    Bigsam Tuesday, 14 February 2012 04:56 PM

    And allowing so many dot balls when batting.

    sena Tuesday, 14 February 2012 03:31 PM

    Dilshan should take over Sanath's role and score faster

    John Tuesday, 14 February 2012 12:06 PM

    Joint men of the match, Mathews for No ball six and Malinga's 3 run last ball. How come they do it. Oh i forgot the umpires. 5 ball over saved Sri Lanka.

    thora Tuesday, 14 February 2012 02:50 PM

    then wht about Gambir's not given lbw, it saved India. lol.

    solico Tuesday, 14 February 2012 02:36 PM

    and making chandimal run out

    senna Tuesday, 14 February 2012 01:27 PM

    teran jayasooriya Tuesday, 14 February 2012 12:14 PM

    Thanks to Angi's no ball hit for SIX & 30 balls wasted at the back end of the inning when he batted.

    suneth Tuesday, 14 February 2012 11:59 AM

    kondebendapucheena Tuesday, 14 February 2012 12:00 PM
