Sri Lankans are through. Its now between India and Bangladesh.

The permutations and combinations in Group B are now getting clearer.

Yet another quickfire century by Sanath Jayasuriya, the evergreen leather whipper, and it had to result in a big victory for Sri Lanka. And with this one they have have taken their NRR so high that they have practically reserved their seat in the Super8s.

Assuming that Bangladesh will win against Bermuda, India, thanks to a foolish loss in the first match, must and should win the game against the Lankans on March 23rd. And it wont be easy. Sri Lanka are on a roll and will badly want to win against India for the two points that they will need in the Super8. And apparently Jayawardene is already talking about it.

Are you listening, team India?
