I agree with everything that you have written, but I would like to add here that the little wicketkeeper from Bangladesh was an outstanding player behind the stumps. H gelled the team together and mostly directed traffic on the field, he is only 18 and has a far way way to go.
I do agree that Australia was the better team, but nobody seems to notice the daunting way Sri Lanka had to bat. Rocky Ponting's men batted without any darkness and no interruption of rain. The Sri Lankans were chasing an impossible score, tried to make it batting in rain, rain stoppage and bad light. It broke up the whole momentum, then they realized that they had lost. I f Jayawardena was not given a wrongful LBW by that sleepy umpire Buchner, there was a chance. Anyhow, in my eyes, they are the winners, because they still made about 8 runs an over given the conditions under which they had to bat
By the way, it is only Sri Lanka who has stood up to the Aussies who made mincemeat of the other teams and bowled them out like schoolboys.
Sri Lnaka should be proud of themselves, and hold their heads high that they are NO2, they came into this World cup with no status. I dont think they expected to play the finals against Australia.Jawardena is a very decent and classy captain and was quoted by Sunil Gavaskar as the most elegant right handed batsman in the world.
I have watched all the games and Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Ireland and New Zealand impressed me a lot. I hope Ireland will be given international status soon, they need to play more international games.
India is touring Bangaldesh in May, Sri lanka is playing Pakistan at Sharjah in May, have not heard waht othere teams are doing.
