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 !!!
