As long as the rain doesn't affect the remaining 2 matches and India bats 2nd, no team really does have a chance against India.

@Abdussaboor: As you were sure about your prediction that England has the best bowling unit in this champions trophy, For your kind information this best bowling attack was thrashed by sri lanka last week while trying to defend a massive target of 293 runs in their home ground and they almost lost their match against new zealand ,Nothing remains the same . Anything can be a best, but to remain the best it requires lot of dedication and hard work. May the better team wins this tournament and i didn't say england can't.

No matter what we need a hundred from one of the openers from Sri Lanka(dilly or kusal) If they do that we have a game here....

The only team in the final four that is capable of beating india is SA ..!!

Lanka always come strong when everyone doesnt give them a chance.... If you see cricinfo, or any other media ...all the odds of winning is given towards India.... Lions come strong when the situation is like this.... if the batting clicks... SL is one of the few teams that could beat India right now....

India got a good batting line-up but the bowling is not that tight. Teams have been able to score against them..

India are looking almost formidable but funny things happen in cricket. You come crashing down when you think you're on top of your game. First time after a long time I've seen them bowl consistently well alongside their consistent batting which makes them a good contender to win. I think it will be England v India in the final which makes up a mouthwatering viewing. I can't wait to watch that one!
