On that note, this is Hari Sadanandan signing off on behalf of my mates MS Ramakrishnan and Siva. Cheers! Nuwan Kulasekara | Player of the Match: I'm very happy with my performance. Captain trusts me in the powerplay and in the death. I just stick to the basics and give my 100 percent. I used to do this role during my playing days and did the same today. Gave my 100 percent for my captain and my team. Tillakaratne Dilshan | Winning captain: Toss is really important. We have a strong batting line-up, so we are able to chase totals. We are doing well in all departments, hopefully we can produce it once more in two day's time. Everyone is enjoying their time out here, both on and off the field. They're keen to show whatever they did 10-15 years ago, so that's why we're doing well. We are getting good support back home. Many people left work early and I heard that they were gathering in big numbers to watch this match on a big screen. Only my hammy is a bit bad, rest all are fine. Big game. India have been playing really well. If we can continue this brand of cricket in the final, I think we can cross the line. Jonty Rhodes | Losing captain: Sri Lankans played really well, they kept the pressure on. We thought that we could get pressure by getting to 140 or so. But they bowled really well, Kula and Sanath too. We did struggle getting 11 fit men for the game but that's no excuse. Sri Lanka have been terrific in their fielding and it's come due to the hard work they've put on. Well deserved. It's been an incredible experience. Good facilities in the hotel and the groundstaff also were brilliant. We were looked after really well. (on the finalists) Two different style teams, interesting to see how they go against each other. 22:09 Local Time, 16:39 GMT, 22:09 IST: Another win for the ruthless Sri Lankans and they've booked a date with India in the summit clash. This game was virtually decided at the halfway mark itself, as 125 was simply not going to be enough. There wasn't much dew tonight, and that meant that the dry surface stayed same for the whole game. But SA needed at least another 25 more runs to make a fist of things. As it turned out, the lack of scoreboard pressure meant that Tharanga could bide his time, as could Jayasuriya, before Jayasinghe finished things with a flurry of strokes. Rhodes can still be proud, a semifinal finish for his side filled with injury-concerns isn't a bad result at all. As for SL, they remain the only unbeaten side in this Raipur leg of the tournament and are now one step away from glory. 17.2 Jonty Rhodes to Chinthaka Jayasinghe, FOUR , Sri Lanka storm into the final!

The two semifinals couldn't have been more contrasting. India had to really survive a scare from West Indies to make it to the final. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka have hardly broken a sweat today, as has been the case in this Raipur leg. So, it's a repeat of the 2011 World Cup final, as the two teams will lock horns for the silverware on Sunday. Do join us for that one. Should be a real cracker. On that note, this is Hari Sadanandan signing off on behalf of my mates MS Ramakrishnan and Siva. Cheers!
