West Indies SELF CONFIDENCE as they were billed as the pre tournament Favourites and I see some hands of bigger bookies also- 32 in 10 overs second 10 overs 105 and SL folding to 101 !!
And Gayle's confidence declaring 2 days in advance SriLanka-Sorry it is our Cup-Who will dare to say so !!! Something is amiss I feel !!
