Watch Wimbledon online live and TV

The final of Wimbledon men’s will kick off today (6 July 2008). In the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal will play the final of the oldest tennis championship.
On paper, Federer was facing the tougher task in the form of a resurgent Marat Safin, but the two-time Grand Slam winner made a slow start, losing his opening service game and swishing his first racquet in frustration at 4-1 down. Federer then seemed to slip into stand-by mode, content to hold serve – which was enough to secure the first set and get him through to a second set tie-break, duly dominated. The third set also went with serve until the 12th game, when the energy-conserving five-time champion upped the ante to break and win the match 6-3, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4.
The German played out of his skin in the second, however, breaking and then holding serve with grim determination. He took it as far as 5-4, but the world No. 94 could not serve out for the set. The ensuing tie-break was dominated by the Spaniard, who went on to break Schuettler’s second service game of the third set. Though the German had the consolation of saving three match points on his own serve at 5-3, Nadal served out to win by a scoreline – 6-1, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 – that bore a remarkable resemblance to Federer’s.

India vs Sri Lanka match bowling reviews

The pitches of the Subcontinents are always flat that is why it is always batting favor. The pacers are always unable to get any help in this pitch. The matches of Asia Cup Cricket are totally batting favor caused huge score in each match. Only spinners can get some extra opportunities in this flat pitch.

Now you have some question that so why the spinners of can not do well against the batsmen of the subcontinent? The answer will come that the batsmen of this area can dominate well the spin balls. The bowler like M Muralitharan is helpless.

Apart from the continued ineffectiveness of the fast bowlers, Piyush Chawla looked quite innocuous too. But to ask someone so inexperienced to deliver on a pitch so doped might be a bit harsh, Dhoni reckoned. "There is no assistance, especially for spinners, on this wicket. You have to be an experienced spinner with a lot of variations. You have to exploit [whatever little the pitch has], and bowl according to wicket. If you have someone like that you can put pressure on batsmen, otherwise even 330 can be difficult to defend."

In the last match between India and Sri Lanka was totally favored to batting. Only Indian new pacer I Sharma got 2 wickets 55 runs and on behalf of Sri Lanka M Muralitharan secured 2 wickets form 44 runs. This is not a good economy for the bowlers in ODI tournament.

The final of Asia Cup will be held between India and Sri Lanka at the National Stadium Karachi. Both the teams have a good quality batting and bowling line up. So an meaningful tournament is suppose to be enjoyed in the final.

India vs Sri Lanka match batting reviews

In the super four of Asia Cup four between India and Sir Lanka was full domination of batsmen. It is amazing that in every match the teams are crossing 300 runs. May it is a new era form 50-50 formatted cricket world. It seems the 300 runs are not good enough lead for any team and the batsmen. So it is time to think newly about ODI Cricket.

If you look over the previous matches of Asia Cup a very few matches scored 300 runs. In the last match between India and Pakistan, the pitch full of bounce but the batsmen easily crossed three hundred runs. In the match of India vs. Sri Lanka the ineffective performance of the batsmen of both sides were astonishing.

Even today, it was the Indian fast bowlers who perhaps made the target look about 20 less than it was. Praveen Kumar, who has almost always got the new ball to do something so far in his career, was out of sorts bowling to two left-hand openers. Ishant Sharma, who came in to replace Praveen, gave away 16 in his first over. Irfan Pathan, with his reduced pace, was always going to struggle on pitches that give him zero assistance. Dhoni thought the bowlers gave it their all, but the pitch was just too unresponsive. "They tried everything, whatever they had in the armoury they tried," Dhoni said. "On a wicket like this, the only way you can stop batsmen from scoring runs is taking wickets. While we were batting we lost three quick wickets when we were batting, and all of a sudden Rohit and I were under pressure."

Winning the toss, Sri Lankan Captain DPMD Jayawardene made up his mind to elect bat first. They started well but losing Sangakkara’s wicket in the 4th over fall some trouble. DPMD Jayawardene and Sanath ST Jayasuriya partnership pushed Sri Lanka in a good position of 71 runs. ST Jayasuriya did not secured to add other fifty in his career but DPMD Jayawardene could do. Other batsmen CK Kapugedera 75, LPC Silva 50,TM Dilshan 15, K Weeraratne 23 and T Thushara 23 brought a highest good score of 308 runs.

Indian batsmen come to bat and started well as usual. Opening partner G Gambhir 68 and V Sehwag 42 helped India to dream the math win. SK Raina, the new added strong top-middle order batsman’s 54 helped to build a strong base. Captain MS Dhoni 67, Yuvraj Singh 36* and RG Sharma 22* reached easily to reached the target of victory.

India vs Sri Lanka Who will win Asia Cup Cricket?

Asia Cup Cricket is a big stage of Asia to proof great of Asian Cricket. India is the most time trophy winner on the other Sri Lanka is the three times. So we cannot think that Sri Lanka is not a week team of Asia.
If we analysis the last statistics of Indian team then easily understand that what is the positive and negative things of the Indian team. India had a very good positive performance in the last one year after the Test and ODI alongside England series. The great success in inaugural Twenty20 championship with some young men, it has totally the thought of the fans of Indian team. Later the matches alongside the 50-50 world champion Australia was also make a lot of positive change in the team.
In the home ODI and Test series alongside Pakistan changed totally without some star cricketer like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly’s dependence. After this matches India started thinking to lead the team without those players and included some new and young players.
India tour of Australia with some new and with some old players, and the experiences players’ failure in a row bound the selection committee to rest some old-experienced player easily. The inaugural T20 formatted IPL tournament has changed to declare the team without Sachin, Rahul and Sourav and has brought a big revolution in the Indian team. The success (although did not become the champion) in Tri-Nation Series also change all motivation to the teams.
Now India is fighting for the top position of the Asia Cup Cricket. Now it is suppose to fight for the final match of the ongoing Asia Cup Cricket tournaments. If India loose to Pakistan then India must have to win in the match with Sri Lanka, otherwise they will kick out from the match. So both the matches are important.
Sri Lanka has already become the qualifier for the final match of Asia Cup Cricket that will be taken place on the 6 July 2, 2008 at National Stadium, Karachi.
The last year’s winning records of Sri Lanka team is not bad. In this season Sri Lanka played some series and got tow series victories alongside Bangladesh and England and achieved one drawn alongside West Indies and lost with Australia.
When I was writing the article, India was playing with the host of Asia Cup Cricket Pakistan. There was no doubt that Pakistan will be secured the victory. If India doesn’t beat Sri Lanka then India will be kicked form the Asia Cup tournament.
