Team india all depends upon kohli. Bowler's alway's give them 30-60 extra run's to chase. What would happen if he doesnt score today????

Cheteshwar should be in at cost of even best batsman !! He has a class of Dravidian and Sachin ! Don't know why he is out! Sharma had too many outings

I would like to see Puajara in place of Rayadu and Binny in place of Aaron. This will create good batting depth and bowling word will be sorted out..

i think india miss great dhoni, yuvi and raina in middle overs.. if kholi gone early what can india do? its the biggest problem .. by the way good luck both teams . sl is favorite to win the crucial match

It is certainly 50:50 game but will be interesting to see how Indian players tackle Malinga and how Sri Lanka restricts Kohli. Best wishes for both the teams. I only want to enjoy best form of cricket. On paper Sri Lanka has minor edge on India but all is to be decided in cricket stadium.

My friends this is not a 50:50 game... This is 90:10 game.... Coz sri lankans are on fire....

The problem we have there is not Raina/Yuvraj so India is little behind in middle over blowling. Obviously, every one missed out MSD.

Kohli's presence gives India a definite edge over SL.

Kohli is India's best batter and it is not wise to make him the captain. Not only he is t ong but also his temperament is questionable. Karthik or Rohit are more suitable. Sachin was a good example do not make the same mistake.
