Default VB Series: 2nd Final - Australia V Sri Lanka

What are the bookies thinking?

Australia $1.30
Sri Lanka $3.55

The last 3 times Sri Lanka have played Australia at the SCG, Sri Lanka have won and in the process, Jayasuriya has posted a century each of the 3 times. That happened in game 5.

Sri Lanka love this ground and they treat it like home. If they bat first, they will win. They have the spinners to bowl Australia out on this wicket at night. And it's always hard chasing high scores at the SCG under lights.

I'm not playing the win yet - it will go down to who wins the toss. If Sri Lanka win the toss and bat, I'll put an in-play bet on them to win. But having Sri Lanka at that price is a risk for the bookies.

The only bets I'm playing are:

Sri Lankan High Bat

Sanath Jayasuriya @ $5.00

Marvan Attapatu to score more runs than Simon Katich @ $2.05

Good luck!

Australia won the toss and decided to bat.

Vaas got Gilchrist for a second ball duck. And who caught the ball?

One guess!

Dilshan - Excellent catch too.

How I wish I took those odds.

Australia 3/10 after 3 overs.

Vaas has all 3 wickets.

Gilchrist, Katich and Martyn all gone.

Sri Lanka to win @ $2.10 - In-play

Get them whilst you can.

Australia will probably bounce back though and Sri Lanka's odds will be better, but I'm taking this now incase Sri Lanka keep this up.

A bit of controversy with respect to the Ricky Ponting catch/non catch

IMO it was hard to say whether the ball bounced first or he got it on his fingertips

Yeah - the Sri Lankan players seemed confident and they would have had best views - but the umpires made the right decision because that would have been hard to give out.

Default Re: VB Series: 2nd Final - Australia V Sri Lanka

Murali 0/99 (10)

That tells you something about the pitch.

If this pitch is still a road tonight, we have a game on our hands - at least a run feast. Australia's bowling is weak without McGrath and Sri Lanka love the SCG.

Sri Lanka won't win but they will get close to this target.

Sri Lanka looked good early. I've gotta say, when it comes to cricket, i'm not very patriotic. I'm happy to see the series is going to a third match though!

Default Re: VB Series: 2nd Final - Australia V Sri Lanka

Batting first on Tuesday will be a must for them. Although, if they bowl first, Vaas and the other fast bowlers can get something out of the pitch, but it won't leave much for the spinners. And if they bowl first, they won't have to face the fresh Aussie bowlers on that wicket in the afternoon.

Having Australia at 3/10 and allowing them to score 369 can't be good for the sri lankan players' confidence going into the decider

Anything but an Australian victory would be a huge shock, regardless of the coin toss.

Default Re: VB Series: 2nd Final - Australia V Sri Lanka

That's true BG

However, if they watch the performance from Friday night, they'll be confident!

They'll treat Tuesday's match the way they went into Friday's. Knowing their underdogs and no-one expecting them to win and going out there and having fun. Whether they win or lose, they won't give a crap. They've surprised themselves and the Australian public and the world how well they have played this tournament considering their lead up form which I must say was very very poor.

They'll go out of this tour on high confidence even if they're flogged on Tuesday.

Australia should win on Tuesday - but by how much and how convincing, that's up to the Sri Lankan's attitude.
