Today, the "Slinga." Tomorrow, the rivals

LASITH MALINGA has taken a wicket for only 20 runs thus far today, as SRI LANKA are bowling against NEW ZEALAND (98-3, 25 overs) in the first semifinal of the CRICKET WORLD CUP.
Malinga is known as "Slinga Malinga" for his unique bowling style.

The Kiwis have yet to get into a run-scoring mode against the Sri Lankan bowling attack that also features Ragana Herath and the splendid Muttiah Muralitharan.

This semifinal was always going to be the most one-sided of the pair, I think, with a much more competitive -- and highly anticipated -- semifinal match coming tomorrow.

INDIA face PAKISTAN, their political/cultural/religious/sporting/and everything-else-you-can-come-up-with rivals.

Today, the focus is on "Slinga" and his wild hair (pictured).

Tomorrow, the focus is on an entire subcontinent.
