MCG is known for it's bounce and slowness these days..it's not going to swing much either..so it's better off playing sachithra than playing dhammika.. since sachithra is new to the scene aussies will be more careful.

the lost deliberately to India in the last match, like they did in world cup 2011 finals.

A loss here, will be an insult to the injury. A victory needed at any damn cost.

Ya, nothing less than a victory or rained out, or it will be a grave shame for the team which has promised so much this series but couldnt finish the job off.Victory needed at any cost.

Scattered Clouds - 22 C

That's the weather forecast. Hopefully rain will not affect he result of the match. Any body around the corner of the stadium to tell us if this sounds right? Hope all Sri Lankans in Melbourne are getting ready to make some noise out there. (After all Melbourne holds the record for 3rd highest number of Sri Lankan residents is what I heard - Colombo and Kandy being one and two respectively)

Chasing ?

100 for 2 in 20 overs, bit worried as run getting seems easy and that makes chasing easy too. Only hope the wicket gets slow and starts to turn under lights.

Pathetic batting from Sri Lanka

Pathetic batting from Sri Lanka, seems like it is them who will have to pack their bags and come home, woeful, is this a team or are their spy's inside the team from India..Today we are going to lose badly.

what a truly magnificient

what a truly magnificient capt. I have never seen captaincy like this. Against all odds and 2 key bowlers down he did it. He needs a standing ovation and to my mind the Capt who pulled a rabbit from the hat should be the man of match.
