    hahaha but pakistan are out of the world cup srilanka and india are in the final. pakistan were lucky to beat srilanka as it was one of their typical inconsistent performances. the srilankans were smart they allowed that defeat to motivate them and they are now in the final pakistan got too bigheaded and therefore lost. if malinga played srilanka would have beaten pakistan

    actually overall in this worldcup srilanka and india were the deserving teams and therefore they are in the finals. pakistan were lucky in some games including the srilanka game. its better that india have come into the final because i believe it will be a good match. if pakistan came into the final they would have been thrashed by srilanka and it would have been one sided.considering the way pakistan is playing and the form of the srilankans
