The 2 Asian giants sri lanka and india have surpassed the  kiwi's to enter the compaq cup will be big game for the 2 teams as the winning team will head to the upcoming champions trophy in a positive mood.The mighty lankans holds the edge over the indians with their performances on saturday's game where the giants of asia were tottaly outplayed by the mighty lions.

Every sri lankan fan would like to see the return of champion off spinner muttiah muralitharan who is expected to return after sitting out the last 2 games due to injury.sri lankans will certainly have the upper hand as india is missing big game palyers like gautham gambhir and virender sehwag.The batting form of the little master sachin tendulkar and skipper MS Dhoni is also a worrying factor in the indian dressing room.on the other hand the lankans seems to be a very stong and solid outfit with old man sanath jayasuriya returning to form and youngster Thilina kandamy ensured the stability of the middle order.Another worrying sign for india is the performance of Angelo matthews who simply rattled the indians with an axceptional bowling display.

The indians will consider bringing in virat kohli or all rounder abhishek nayar to open with tendulkar while RP singh is probablly going to make way for swing bowler praveen kumar.

It will be a cracker of a game while the TOSS remains a crucial factor in the games outcome.
