    Anyone following the India Sri Lanka match? India need to cruising to victory, but need to chase down 320 within 40 overs to have a chance of making the final. Making a good fist of it.

    More than a good fist, looks like it's in the bag now!

    Aye, they started panning it everywhere after I wrote that. 321/3 in 36.4 overs. Great chase.

    Malinga got carted for 12.5 an over!

    Heh, Sri Lanka have just booked a place in the Tri-Series finals against Australia at the expense of India. Things haven't gone too well for poor old India since the World Cup.

    ...lol

    So. I didn't follow this but it seems India met there increditarget to get in the final but now Sri lanka are in at their expense?

    Life can be so unfair eh?

    With the exception of Yuvraj, who I obviously have plenty of sympathy for, I'm quite happy to see the Indians struggling! Says a lot when I want the Australia to win cricket matches!

    Class act in everything he did for cricket, India will miss him massively.

    Absolutely. Despite his age and form he still managed five centuries last year. Totally gutted the rest of the team didn't show up in England. :/

    His 148 at Headingley in the 2002 series on the first day to this day amazes me. I don't know how he scored that on that insane pitch but he did.

    Yep, will be missed, quite majestic at times. Enjoy a well earned rest Rahul.

    One of my favourites, always looked for his scores. One of the greats. Always came accross very well in interviews as well.

    His batting to win a Test in Adelaide (I think in 2003), is probably the best performance by an Indian overseas ever.

    'Bangladesh seem to be giving this to him on a platter. Where are the attacking fields?'

    Done. Well done that man.

    He should retire now I reckon.

    Sorry old chap, good innings and all that, but your slow scoring rate probably contributed to your team losing the match!

    Feel a bit sorry for him.

    I know what you mean - it's a real shame that such an incredible milestone was reached in an ODI against Bangladesh AND India ended up losing the match.

    Mind you, the history books won't be concerned with that - 100 centuries is amazing whichever way you look at it and I can't see it being beaten.
