But SL won! It was always a 50:50 game with 2 good sides like Agarkar Said.

Yes undoubtedly Pakistan is hot favourite today because today trusted players are going to deliver and unpredictability of Afridi is always there.

Pakistan may be slight favourites if they bring in their A game, but there are absolutely no grounds to claim they are "red hot favouriites".

As a fan of both Pakistan and SL i hope we witness a classical finals and may the best team wins.

It's very hard for pak. but if pak will not do any mistakes they can win it. ..

Cheers for both teams.

good to know pakistan are favourites .SL can play with less pressure

Pakistan definitely the favourites and if afridi continues to fire the way he is than srilanka has no chance and he loves playing against srilanka.
