    Best wishes to our cricket team..!
    If we win this match then the next match (Semi finals) will be played against either South Africa or New Zealand at Premadasa stadium on 29th.
    We got a good chance this time...

    We can win this match easily. I don't think toss will be important factor when we are playing against England.

    But don't forget England defeated (or tie) all the matches they played against big strong teams (SA,WI and India). But defeated against weakest team like B'desh and Ireland.

    Anyway I thin below teams will select for Semis.

    1. Sri Lanka
    2. Pakistan
    3. Australia
    4.S. Africa

    Sri Lanka should never be complacent. It should work hard over the next couple of days on England, and semi-finalists.

    Senna Sunday, 20 March 2011 07:56 PM

    This is a very rare opportunity to face England rather than India. Our top players must play for the country & not for the people

    kingsly Monday, 21 March 2011 08:08 AM

    Best of luck.Go ahead and bring glory to Srilanka.All the best.

    Afker Hussain Sunday, 20 March 2011 09:05 PM

    Lal Medawatte Sunday, 20 March 2011 10:21 PM

    Incidentally on its victorious route to 1996 World Cup Sri Lanka beaten England at the Quarter-finals convincingly and hopefully history will be repeated here at 2011 World Cup.

    Go Sri Lanka..!! All the best to Sanga and the team!

    Suranga Monday, 21 March 2011 12:23 AM

    Three matches away from the Cup that Cheers! Sri Lanka must do a micro-analysis on Australia, South Africa and England, not to mention India. Special request: Tharanga, please be more active on the field!

    Suresh Tuesday, 22 March 2011 03:01 AM

    This is a best chance for us to bring back the WC back to SL after we missout in 2003 semis with Aus & 2007 Final once against with Aus, so do your best (Sanga & Team) we all behind you.

    if possible do not come No.3 & No. 4 both of you (Sanga & Mahela) since our middle order not click enough, better for thing all situation

    noxurs Monday, 21 March 2011 02:06 AM

    This should be a cakewalk for SL.

    suren Monday, 21 March 2011 02:06 AM
