    ^ That was too easy.

    Aussies vs India was quite close though.....India's lower order batsmen always come through though -_-

    Pakistan vs India big match eek2. Hopefully England can get through shifty

    Na, I'm interested sometimes.....I'd get bored watching test cricket....and I'd watch ODI's maybe...depends what I was doing (e.g. if I was in a pub having a drink then maybe, or at home on a hot day and cba to do anything). 20/20's are pretty good eek2

    India v Sri Lanka. Final.

    With India winning. Not rocket science three of the sub-continent teams are in the Semi Finals. Expected.

    Loved Dilshan's face after he hit a four instead of giving his partner the strike. Almost embarrassed Laughing

    Where in England do you live?

    I wouldn't say I see A LOT of Sri Lankans, but when I've been in highschool/college there was a fair amount.

    There's more Polish, but it just turned out that at the Waitrose I worked at there was like 10 Sri Lankans Laughing

    They were friendly and good mates and all....but despite living here 10+ years seemed to lack the English/intelligence that I have...and I felt like I was having to drop some a level Neutral.

    That's kind of why I'm glad I'm not working there anymore. They're alright but the job + the people I was working with didn't challenge my brain at all.....I felt stupid Neutral

    Anyway, we're going to be in Euro 2012 and Sri Lanka won't be shifty..........Laughing

    Cricket's our only way to get glory. Shite at Rugby, shite at football and non-existent in other sports.

    And I'm fairly intelligent, and Sri Lankan's are fairly intelligent. You must have come across a few rejects Neutral

    And I live in Cambridge shire, plenty of Pakistanis, a fair few Indians but hardly any Sri Lankans Sad I could always go back

    100-2 chasing 261 with 27 overs left. Tough call, but India are the favourites IMO.
