Good to see Gilchrist get a century in his last game at the WACA. Sri Lanka are chasing well at the moment.

Not gonna happen. Brad Hogg got 2 wicket in 2 balls and now Sri Lanka ae stuffed. I'm about to go to bed and they are 9 down. It'll be over soon. Gilly will get man of the match, no doubt about it.

Edit - All out for 173. Game over.

Game 7 is on today in Adelaide. Brett Lee will be missing and Michael Clarke is very doubtful after being hit in the ribs the other day against Sri Lanka.

Clarke is lucky, he can spend more time in bed with his girlfirend Lara Bingle.

Australia made 9/203. Pretty poor by their standards. India aren't doing overly well at present, they are 4 down for 70 after 20 overs.

Game 8 - India Vs Sri Lanka at Adelaide.

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first. Not off to a good start. Lost both openers and the score is currently 2/15 after 8 overs. Slow going.

On a side note, this match is not being shown on the TV here, which is a first. Just because Australia is not involved they have gone with regular programming, not even a highlights show later this evening. Piss poor effort.

4/162 after 39 overs. They have a few wickets in hand so it may be time or them to go for the slog, if they can.
