    What are the odds for Misbah to rectify his one mistake from the last T20 final.

    My heart and mind says - go Pakistan. The right shade of greeen should do it tomorrow.

    If Gul, Afridi and Ajmal - fire with the ball, I'm a 100 % confident that Pak will win it tomorrow.

    TD is due a failure and laws of average says that tomorrow is the day. If he fails and Jayasuriya is stuck , can't see SL making enough runs for a win ! :-)

    Yep intriguing it is. There is plenty of experience and plenty of recent heartbreak. Both teams have a point to prove, which makes this one hell of a final!
