    Today's cricket

    I thought I'd get this started in anticipation of the frenzied interest surrounding England's test matches in South Africa.

    India vs. Sri Lanka ODI today. India made 414! Sri Lanka look set to beat it, although they've just lost Dilshan (160 of 124 balls).

    Amazing game.

    No, apparently SA and Australia went higher in 2006:

    One Day International Series: India v Sri Lanka
    15-12-2009 at Rajkot
    India beat Sri Lanka by 3 runs
    Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to field
    India Innings
    414 for 7 (50.0 overs)
    Sri Lanka Innings
    411 for 8 (50.0 overs)

    Great recovery from Inida in the last 7 or 8 overs. It looked like Sri Lanka would win easily. How I would have loved to have been at that game.

    I'd be interested to hear the reasons behind this decision. Perhaps he should have listened to WG Grace on this one:

    'When you win the toss – bat. If you are in doubt, think about it, then bat. If you have very big doubts, consult a colleague – then bat.'

    I thought SL were going to win it with 3 overs left. They needed 21 and had two (relatively) set batsmen. It must have been a great bowling performance from India at the death.

    England win the toss and put South Africa in to bat

    (Graeme Smith says he would've batted anyway).

    Ashwin's excellent performance with the bat for India means we need another day to finish it or hopefully part of a day. Well done England though today :thumbup:

    So... the Ashes start up again tonight. Any predictions? I'm going for 3-1 England. As in the summer, England simply have the better team player for player. No doubt players like Clarke, Watson and Mitchell will shine occasionally for Australia, but overall class will tell and we'll take the series.

    I'll go 2-1 England. I think the Aussies are scared to death of Tremlett and Broad on bouncy pitches, so we'll see lots of runs and flat pitches. 2 drawn tests sounds about right.

    I think England will have too much for them, and once again I expect them to win the key sessions with better big-game players. So I'll go:
    England win
    Draw
    Aussie win
    England win
    Draw
