Bangaladesh need to be committed in all aspects of the game. One day they are good with the bat and the next match they are not. Same goes with their bowling and fielding. I think they need a good coach. Do they have one now? We have not seen the coach taking an active part that is if there is one?

Well played SL and please do not do what you have done in the past few years when you get to major finals. Our prayers are with you.

Bangladesh have very poor coaches. Need new coaches soon otherwise there is no chance.

Well fought BD and well played SL. Again, a game SL should have won with much more ease!

Mathews is really maturing and is becoming a good finisher for Sri Lanka. Couple of unnecessary runouts, like Mahela's one, turned out to be costly. Kusal Perera (KJP) needs to give himself some time and be patient!

Hopefully, Mahela will have a good comeback in the final, and we all know how good he is.

Hope we have an awesome final! Good luck to both Pakistan and Sri Lanka!! :)

Good luck to Sri Lanka & Bangladesh, I hope they would not hold back. Winning is good, brilliance is better, and we expect brilliance, charisma and bravery on both sides, so that we spectators can enjoy. Bangladesh did provide some brilliance on all the games but one.

Congratulations SL and kudos to BD for fighting back strongly.BD were about 25-30 runs short . Credit to SL for a recovery from being 3 down for 8 ,their last 4 wickets adding 200 runs . Matthews was very calm and collected in the chase and ably supported by De Silva , Priyanjan & Tissara . Mahela had an unfortunate run out and is due a big innings . He is a big match player and hoping he will come good in the final. Sanga according to law of averages was due a low score and in a strange way it is better to have happened in this game rather than the final . Should be a wonderful final and SL must get their top order to click to win . They have been a bridesmaid quite often and deserve to win some hardware for their efforts .Good luck to both teams.
