Commentary

That's all from us. Okay bye

Presentation
Dinesh Chandimal is the MoM He says, "I am very happy with my batting performance. Good pitch, and I played my normal game."

Tillakaratne Dilshan "I said in the morning, we want to finish it off today. our players did really well. We kept the pressure up through the fielding, keeping the fielders up. I told the players we needed to improve the fielding, and they did a really good job in the field, stopping goo shots, taking difficult catches. Really happy with Cahndimal's batting, playing so well in his second game."

Suresh Raina "I am not happy at all. Al the credit goes to Sri Lanka, they batted really well, especially Dinesh. We didn't bowl well, especially with the new ball. Ashwin bowled well, and he batted well too. We haven't been good throughout the tournament."

So Sri Lanka knock India out of a multi-nation tournament. Oh well. Not surprising, they are used to doing it. It was a professional performance from Sri Lanka, superb in the field, smart with the ball, and Chandimal was special with the bat. India, at the reverse end of momentum, forgot basics like crossing over when holing out in the deep, like attacking the batsmen when defending an average total, and paid the due price. Also news coming in the India have slipped to No. 3 in ICC ODI rankings. Hang on for the presentation

Dinda to Mendis, FOUR runs, that's it, short ball, pulled away for four, and SL join Zimbabwe in the final. Well done, both of them, and India, as a reader said, are Out of Africa. Well not quite, they have to wait for this to finish and then play two T20s against Zimbabwe, regarding which Praveen Kumar writes in, "T20 should be interesting battle between India and Zimbabwe. Who knows INDIA can shock them with a win afterall its a T20.."
