We have come to the beginning of the end of the Cricket World Cup, with only three games left of this cricketing spectacle.

This match between the Sri Lankans and the surprising New Zealanders is not as evenly matched as the game we are all looking forward to tomorrow, but should prove to be a decent game of cricket!

New Zealand will take heart from the fact that they beat the Proteas in a game nobody gave them any chance in, and that underdog tag is what they will be wearing again tomorrow. Sri Lanka watch out!

    :twisted: :lol:

    Im not trying to shift the favourite tags Rich.

    You seem to forget who the top SA team is and I quote:

    ‘Remember that the Sharks, as Currie Cup champions, are going to be playing with a massive target on their backs this year. Every team likes to beat the best and the reality of the situation this season is that the Sharks are going to face highly-motivated and physical opposition every time they take the field.’

    This extract is courtesy of our very own Robdylan!! The HERO and Master of all Sharks supporters worldwide.

    So if Rob says so, then IT ARE so, capish?? :grin: :mrgreen:

  • oh well there are no words to what we are seening it could of been us out there and playing the match with proud in our hearts,

    but there is no way that the NZ is going to win this one, i just hope i don’t have to eat my words up later

    SL by 98 runs and 2 wickets NZ are great with this wicket thing that was the only way to get rid of us

    go SL
