Sri Lanka became runner up in the cricket world cup 2007

Sri Lanka became the runner up in the cricket world cup 2007. For sri lank this is the most successful world cup tournament after winning the cup in 1996. This time also sri lankans were very close to the world cup victory until the damage done by Adam Gilchrist in the final. Anyway this has been a great tournamant for couple of young sri lankan players like Lasith Malinga, Chamara Silva as they shown they are ready for the first 11 and senior players like Mahela, Sangakkara, Jayasooriya, Muralitharan as they returned back in to a good form at the end of the tournament.

well done !!!

Sri Lanka beat New Zealand by 81 runs

It was the first semi final match of the cricket world cup 2007. Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat first. Master blaster Sanath Jayasuriya went back cheaply for 1 run and Sangakkara couldn't do much because he's out for 18 runs. Sri Lanka were 67/2 in the 14th over. Then Mahela Jayawardene joined Tharanga and lift up the score upto 111 when Tharanga balled out to Vettori for 73 off 74 balls. Mahela started his innings very slowly, spared too many balls to score his first few runs but the accelaration was superb and never seen such an innings in recent one day cricket. He kept his head cool and played a captions knock. Mahela was 115 off 109 balls. He played a mind game. At the end Sri Lanka has scored 289/5. Again Mahela has proved that he's not a good batsman but a class batsman. Australia will play against South Africa in the second semi final. Good luck to Sri lankan team for the Final on the 28th of April. Let's hope it'll be a tight game and we can see some good cricket.

Session variable not getting updated

I was doing the final touches to the price calculation process of the shopping cart of the e-commerce web site which we(rasika & me) have to deliver on next week.

I was updating a session variable and subsequently redirecting to another web page. In the second page I'm checking the updated value of the session variable and came across this weired behavior that session variable is not getting updated sometimes.

I tried in many ways to figure out the problem and spent half a day. Finally when I'm testing with the Firefox browser, realized that it takes a constant time to update the session and before updating the session it is checking the status of that session variable from the second page. so what I did is put a delay before redirecting to the second page and it is working fine. Weired...
