Srilanka is for sure better batting unit with Jayasuriya and Dilshan on top, followed by Jayawardane and Sanghakara. For Pakistan only ray of hope can be Misbah.. Afridi I don't think is going to contribute with bat today, as he scored 50 in last match.. now it will be followed by streak of You can compare them in bowling.. but there also Srilanka have an edge with more options, Pakistan mainly rely on Umar Gul and Afridi while for Srilanka there opening pair is doing well and then they have Malinga and Muralidharan in middle, Jayasuriya can come handy too. Srinalka is overwhelming favs to win with a better team.

i agree with you srilanka has been batting well mainly due to the top order but one of them has contributed in every match especially dilshan. sangakarra and jayawardene are good players of spin so they can tackle the middle overs with ease. it all depends on how jayasuriya plays if he gets into the groove then srilanka is almost certain of winning the match. Afridi has finished his batting for the tournament it would be a miracle if he scores a fifty today. srilanka has the best bowling attack in the tournament and i hope jayasuriya uses his experience to bowl well and take wickets. i think srilanka are the runaway favourites.
